“Great experience for new divers”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2012

I recently chaperoned a trip to St John's of 6 newly certified divers ages 15-16 and used Cruz Bay. They provided a great experience for the new divers that showed them the wonderful world below the ocean's surface without compromising safety. The Dive Masters gave great clear directions to the boys and took it nice and slow for them. The dive sites they selected tested the boys' ability but were still safely explored by the boys. After each dive the boys came up wide eyed exchanging stories of what each had seen. The reservation staff, boat captains right down to the dive masters were professional, friendly and patient. Two thumbs up from my whole gang about Cruz Bay!

“Ledges were cool”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

Cory and mike were very professional. Been on many dive trips and never had one so professional. Concerned about safety. Went very slow underwater so you could really take your time to explore with out losing the guide. The ledges were especially neat because you could see sealift above and below the ledges at the same time. This is a must do if you go to st John.

“There is nothing better than diving in the USVI”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 February 2012

Great time, thank you Matthew Tison and Cody and Jared (hope I spelled that right). It was awesome to learn and have fun with all of them. And thanks for the driving lessons... As well as for teaching me to dive. Hope we hit some harder waves next time! Then it will be even more fun.

“Refused To Honor Signed Contract”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2012

After reserving a motorboat with an advanced signed contract, this company had the never to call the next day to state that they were unilaterally cancelling the contract since they had now over booked their boats. They further stated that no boats were available for the next week, and offered no form of compensation or discount on other available equipment.
They honestly could care less about the situation or customer. It seemed like this was a regular occurance to them.
