Great dive!

Great experience! The staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and patient. Loved it! Wea saw lots of fish, a turtle & a sting ray! There were also at least a dozen sea stars!

Worth every penny

Never scuba dived before. We will be getting certified after that! Had so much fun, crystal clear water. Instructor Jared helped us every step of the way. Would definitely recommend to anyone visiting

It's so amazing to hear when one of our customers wants to join us in being a protector of our ocean. Once you experience it, you fall in love with the whole undersea world. We are so happy that you had a great experience with Jared! Thanks for taking the time to share your experience!
Scuba adventure!

Our guides Audrey, Steve, Billy, Jared, and Nen were amazing. They were thorough and professional while keeping it amazingly fun. Would fully recommend this company and would recommend doing the second dive if offered.

Caring crew

Guides were fantastic! I was extremely seasick and the crew was kind and caring. My husband was able to enjoy the diving since he knew I was in good hands. Great job everyone

Audrey, Dave and Steve were great! It was my first time diving and Audrey made sure I was completely at ease. My husband unfortunately got a bit of sea sickness and all three checked on him and made sure he had what he needed. We had an unexpected surprise with our second stop at Christmas Cove, a concert! The atmosphere was great for our snorkeling! Thank you from Phoenix!!

Amazing and unforgettable experience. Big shout out to Jared for helping me through a lot and being so down to earth. It is something I will never forget and would love to go back out with the kind and enthusiastic crew!
Great dives, Inappropriate conversation
, Jul 2021
Anna, Wolfgang and Quinton were great. The dives were fine and a great experience for my teens. Our issue with the experience was the continued non-stop talk of Jeffrey Epstein and Pedophile Island. This is were the dives took place and that's fine but all the pedophile talk was inappropriate.
icon Response from Host , Jul 2021
Thank you very much for your review. We are glad you liked the crew and enjoyed your experience. We are very sorry you were unable to dive with your family due to medical reason. We were diving at Ledges of Little St James, at infamous Jeffrey Epstein island. Ledges are great dive and divers of all levels enjoy diving there. We are sorry you were not comfortable with conversation on the boat. Unfortunately the crew is unable to censor and control guest conversations. We only had couple of guest on the boat so taking distance from conversations was always an option. We are sorry you have not bring your concerns to the crew during the trip as we could try to mitigate the issue. We hope to have opportunity to dive again with your family,

Best part of our trip!

Anna was amazing! I was nervous as I was learning to breathe underwater and she literally held my hand as we were scuba diving. Quinton and Justin were also great guides/captains! Everyone was accommodating and fun!

Will be Back!!!
, May 2019
My husband and I took the discover SCUBA course with Ana and Wolfgang last week. My husband is quite the seasoned diver, however, I have never done it myself. I could not have asked for a better first time scuba diving!! Ana was so wonderful in the way that she helped me over come my fears about diving and by the end of it, I was feeling comfortable with it. I think if I had had any other instructor with me, I would have given up easily. Ana did an exceptional job letting me get comfortable at my own pace. I also appreciated that she gave me autonomy over my comfort and helped me back to the surface during a moment where I became overwhelmed. Thankfully I fel comfortable enough during the second half of our dive that I was able to let go of her hand and explore the reef! We saw the most beautiful fish, coral, and urchins along with sting rays, nubi branks, and even an octopus!!! Wolfgang served us rum punch and supplied us with floatie noodles for relaxing in teh water after our dive - perfect end to an awesome new experience! Now I can't wait to get certified and to plan and entire trip back to St Thomas for more SCUBA diving with Ana and Wolfgang!
My boyfriend and I did Discover...
, Jul 2016
My boyfriend and I did Discover Scuba with Ana and Wolfgang on June 29, 2016. We had never been scuba diving before and were nervous but all of our fears were put aside immediately when we began. Ana called to confirm our hotel information and Wolfgang picked us up on time. They were clear with what to expect and made us feel so comfortable. They made sure we felt at ease before moving forward. If we had more time we would have done the full scuba certification with them. The whole crew was hilarious and helpful, but most importantly knowledgable. I HIGHLY recommend diving with them, whether it's your first time or 1000th dive! AMAZING group of people and we can't wait to see them again. Thank you for an experience we will never forget and for laughs the whole time.
