I've been meaning to do my open water for years, finally got round to sorting it out last month and it was well worth the wait! Christian was amazing, so quick in responding to my barrage of emails especially as we weren't exactly the easiest trio to sort out. One of us was a dive master, the other not even... More

We had a great time with the Jamaica Scuba Divers team. :) Christian was a great teacher and all the other guys were fun and helpful. My son and I did our first time pool course and took two dives at about 25-30 feet deep, which doesn't seem like much but we were amazed. Our little boat ride was only... More

Christian picked us up at the cruise ship dock and drove us to a beautiful resort. From there we took a dive boat to two different dive locations. David was a fantastic Dive Master. Very safe, very conservative. The company is very bare-bones (bring your own bottled water and snack) but they take very good care of you and take... More

I was out diving with these guys for a week between the 8-6-2014 and the 13-06-2014. The material they provided was adequate and the shop is very small. I guess that what makes this a nice place to dive with are the guys.....David, Fruty and Broko. We had a lot of fun and all dives were interesting. Some dives were... More

We were staying at a hotel in runaway bay for our vacation last week. We were looking for a dive shop to work with us during our vacation. Jamaica Scuba Divers came to the rescue. They were awesome. They graciously picked us up each morning from our hotel. Took us on many incredible dives during the week. David and Fruity... More

My friend John and I had two dives with David and Fruity, we did the canyon, which is a wall dive, and the wreck dive. Both were great fun, visibility and sea life on the canyon dive were excellent, the weather had changed a bit for the second dive and visibility wasn't just as good, but still better than a... More

Had another great time diving with my second family, David and Fruity. We have been coming down to FDR for almost 10 years. The dive team is great, the dive sites are minutes from the resort and lots of cool sea life this year. Only suggestion is to get a bigger boat so you are not so cramped when you... More

I have been diving since 1976, with 30 dives so far this year and had a great time with Jamaica Scuba Divers (so, I really cannot agree with the previous review). We were on the Carnival Sunshine and booked the dives online with Christian before leaving on the cruise. Christian provided us with specific email directions and we had no... More

We booked online with Christian as our cruise line offered no scuba excursions for Jamaica. He provided transportation to Franklin D Resort and back outside Ocho Rios port to Runaway Bay for $15 per person, round trip. They operate a covered panga boat from a small dock. Our first dive was just my wife and I. We were somewhat disappointed... More

Christian has the best dive operation in Jamaica. Fantastic dive sites including ship wrecks planes, canyons, and walls. All of these are 100yds offshore. He is a great instructor and has certified my wife and I up to rescue diver over the years. All three of my kids are now certified thanks to Christian and his crew. Fruity is my... More
