My wife and I visited St. Croix for a vacation and some relaxation. We tried to dive before in a different venue but my wife felt very uncomfortable with the instructor and pace. The experience with Corey was unbelievable as he worked with us to prepare for her first dive. He was so patient and put her in a relaxed... More

We had a terrific experience diving with SCUBA during the week of our trip to St. Croix! Best of all, our 11-year-old son got certified with Scott, who was incredibly patient. Scott didn't let our little guy cut any corners and made sure that he completed each skill during his pool and open water dives. It had been a while... More

Everything about my experience w/ SCUBA can be summed up in one word-Incredible! This was my first dive ever and once in the water, I immediately panicked and forgot everything that I had learned just a few hours prior to the dive. Fortunately for me, I had an amazing dive instructor and thanks to Cory, he talked me through the... More

Penni, it was great to have you diving with us again. We, and especially Cory, absolutely love teaching SCUBA diving to families as we know it's an activity that can provide a wonderful family activity for years to come. We're looking forward to seeing you and one of your sons again this summer. More

SCUBA is a veteran dive shop in St. Croix, loved by locals and visitors alike. Ed and Molly have run the place for decades, and no one has a bad word to say about them. They hire great crew, have the biggest dive boat on island, and know the reef blindfolded. You are safe in their hands.

My airline seatmate and long-time St. Croix denizen and experienced diver recommended this outfit for our diving activities. We had diver refresher training in a pool, then a night dive off the Fredriksted Pier and a two-tank dive at points along the north coast. Nicely done, very well organized, tending to all of the safety issues while keeping everything very... More

They certainly live up to their motto of being "The Friendliest Dive Operation on St. Croix!" Very nice dive boat, caring and professional crew and great dive sites.
