Just a note to let people know-this dive shop is unfortunately closed. JC Ocean Adventures is diving out of the Cabrits Park in Portsmouth. We ended up diving with them after finding out that Cabrits Dive is closed. Just a heads up for anyone wanting to dive up north. I use TripAdvisor a lot and wanted to keep info up... More

Myself and my lady stumbled into Cabrits Dive Centre on a whim one afternoon during our stay on Dominica, we 'stumbled out' about a week later. Pete and his staff are extremely knowledgeable, professional, attentive and as engaging as a people could ask for in a field like this. The diving in and around Cabrits was by itself amazing but...

In April, my wife, son and I wanted to become certified scuba divers. We have all dived before but not as certified divers. We contacted Cabrits because of the positive reviews. Gina was very helpful in getting us started through e-learning on the PADI website. When we arrived, Pete spent time getting to know us and getting us set up... More

My daughter Isandra has been wanting to experience scuba diving. I'm an advanced open water diver and she has heard my dive stories and seen my vast collection of dive pictures so naturally she wanted to experience my love for diving. At 11 years old I felt Isandra was ready to experience scuba. We scheduled a Discover Scuba with Cabrits... More

My partner and I dove with Pete and had a serious mishap because of equipment we rented from him. He was our divemaster. Rather than administer proper medical care to a diver who had just experienced a rapid ascent from 70+ feet, he suggested that I disconnect my BCD and continue diving. I ended up experiencing "bends" for the first... More

We had a large group of divers with varied dive experience to take 4 day, 2 tank dives. Pete and his crew, including another dive master, did a great job making sure all the divers in our group had a safe and pleasurable dive experience. Pete personally took our new divers " mud guppies" under his wing working on their... More

My kids (17 & 14) and I are certified open water divers but still beginners. Our dives were wonderful! The coral is healthy and plentiful as are the fish that inhabit them. Peter gave us a lot of personal attention and knowing we were still beginners focused a fair amount of energy on safety and he is great with the... More

I'm a Padi certified Rescue Diver who has done numerous dives with Pete and his boat captain. I have never felt unsafe when I dove him, and I always knew I was in good hands. The diving there is the best I've ever done without a doubt. I have seen everything from a hammerhead pup to a pregnant sea horse... More

My husband and I are certified open water divers but still beginners, and our daughter got her certification through Cabrits. We had a great experience with this dive shop. Peter is an excellent teacher and a lot of fun. He offers personalized service and good rental equipment, and his "refresher course" was incredibly helpful. Highly recommended!
