Got to see some sharks and... More

It was my first experience with scuba and their instructor was awesome. Damien was very easy to get along with and was even very patient when my wife decided it wasn't for her after we had already went into the water. I will definitely go back on my next trip here.

My dad, some friends of his and I got to visit St. Maarten on a daddy/daughter dive trip round #2 (round #1 was 19 years ago in Cozumel!) We chose St. Maarten because of it's availability, ease of traveling to and great reviews of easy scuba diving. I had not been diving for 5 years due to raising my young... More

Eva was very professional and patient with me as I struggled a little in the beginning. Captain Soinet was very pleasant and encouraging. One thing I would be sure to do next time is have... More

Had 2 great dives in St.Maarten with Damien and capt Swainee. Can absolutely recommend them. The only thing missing on our dives where natural reefs, but the artifical stuff had excellent guests. We saw wrecks, turtles, shark, jaw fish, green and spotted mureenas and much more.

Divemasters Damien, Mark and Eva did a great job leading the dives on my 5 days of diving. Swainee is an excellent captain with a knack for navigating the boat in sometimes rough seas. The staff are very hard working to insure safety and fun on all the dives.
