We decided to do the 1/2 day snorkel trip to Prickly Pear and Little Cove. The crew is quite friendly and the food on Prickly Pear was surprisingly wonderful! The snorkeling was terrific and the boat ride/tour was a lot of fun. All in all a great day out that I would highly recommend.

Rated one of the top beaches in the world in 2005. Gorgeous gorgeous beach. Long and wide, beautiful white white sand, food and drinks ( a bit more on the pricey side ) but the beach chairs and umbrellas were cheap $10.00 for two chairs and an umbrella. Four of us took a ferry over from St Maarten in Marigot,... More

I just returned from Anguilla where I dived with Shoal Bay for two days. After a minor scheduling snafu, the owner Matt really treated me right, assuring me he would take me out diving by myself if he had too to make up for it, and he was a man of his word. The second day he drove the boat... More

What great customer service! I exchanged several emails with Matthew before booking my dive during a stay in Anguilla. Matthew replied very timely and thoroughly answered my (many!) questions. And he stayed in touch with me as to whether or not the dive was a “go,” due to weather conditions. Alas, I was unable to keep my dive reservation but,... More

We chartered the Thomas B and were assisted by Metro and Pinky. They were very laid back and exactly what we wanted. No obnoxious music or partying. They took us to Little Bay and Prickly Pear. We had a very good day with them. We drank beers with the proprietor, Matthew, at Roy's Place afterwards. He's a very nice gentleman... More

We just got back from Anguilla. We met Matthew two years ago when we went on a boat excursion to Prickly Pear. At the time our sons were 12 and 14 and were itching to dive. We did the PADI e learning and contacted Matthew to do the open water portion of the certification. Matthew was great. He responded to... More

I dove with SBS back in December. I did 3 2 tanks dives. I have been both a recreational and police diver for 20+ years. Most of my work dives were in the cold Massachusetts Waters, River, lake and ocean. I have been all over the Caribbean on recreational diving. SBS is one of the best outfits I have dived... More

We had a wonderful dive with Shoal Bay Scuba. We appreciated the care they took with our equipment, our 'pre-dive' talk/introduction, and general attention to our safety underwater. The crew was very professional. We dove around two wrecks and saw lots of sea life. The crew pointed out sea life they thought we had missed. Between the dives the crew... More
