I took my two daughters scuba diving for the first time with Jerry and Jashae and they had a blast! Jashae was so confident and calming that everyone had a great time. Jashae guided us through wrecks and canyons in a reef and pointed out tons of saline including stingrays, sea turtles, and various urchins. It was a life-time memory... More

My family dove 3 days (6 dives with Admiralty). Jerry was great to talk to and made our experience fun and memorable. My son completed his OWC and Jashae was an excellent instructor and guide! He really made the experience exciting and fun! My kids loved Jashae!!! He stayed with my family the whole time and pointed out different underwater... More

Just got back from a great drive with Admiralty Dive Center. Brought a friend along to try the discover scuba. If you are interested in diving, don't look anywhere else. Jashae took his time with my friend to make sure he was comfortable and safe in the water. Speaking of safe, I was on the boat with the person that... More

I booked a combined snorkel and dive for me and my girlfriend. On the phone, Jerry was just fine and happy to take my money. On the dive, I have several complaints. 1. Jerry was late to the dive. We waited more than a half hour for him to show up and drive the boat. 2. He was totally unapologetic... More

Thank you for your review Kurt. Again we apologize for being tardy. it was windy that day and for safety purposes we had to travel slower on our morning dive, Which in turn made us late dropping them back to the ship, which resulted in making us 30 minutes late for the afternoon dive. I'm unclear what you mean by... More

Did 4 dives in two days with these guys and couldn't have asked for anything better! Did multiple wrecks and some awesome reefs, got to play with an octopus and see so much sea life! Jerry and Jashae are a one of a kind pair and will give you a great look into what diving in St Thomas has to... More

As much as I liked Christy and Jerry, some of the issues I had with my dive were safety-related, so I think I should share them. Pros: Friendly, responsive to emails, fair price/good value, Jerry (the dive master) goes out of his way to point things out during the dive and was very helpful, gave me a lift back into... More

Thank you so much for your review! We certainly do try our best to make everyone happy. We are truly sorry about the smoke, unfortunately there is nothing that can be done about it. The boat is run by a Caterpillar 3126 Diesel engine and unfortunately they smoke a lot. We are working on maybe getting the exhaust moved to... More

Easy to book on line. Jerry picked me up at the cruise ship terminal and I enjoyed two nice dives with a small group led by Jashae, then Jerry drove me back to the ship. Admiralty is the way to go if you want a smaller, personalized diving experience.

Highly recommend Jerry and his crew at Admiralty Dive. We broke away from the cruise ship group excursions and booked with Admiralty. My son and I had experienced diving while my wife and daughter were apprehensive about trying it out and potential of getting sea sick. The crew worked with my wife and daughter and had them both loving the... More

When ever my wife and I vacation in the USVI's we always make it a point to dive with Admiralty divers. They are DIVERS not tourist trap dive operators that time your dive to their own schedule. Jerry always wants to make the dive fun and exciting that's why we come back. It's not a cattle boat operation. You actually... More

It was a great afternoon out. The captain and J were awsome. I only went Snorkling and the water clarity was less than I deal, but it was starting lol worth it being out on the ocean with such nice people.
