My boyfriend and I dove with Scuba Fun after being recommended to them by our hotel. Scuba Fun offers a free shuttle (aka. personal pick up) to and from the Westin, a great service and always on time at 8:15am sharp! We dove 6 times within our week stay and each dive was unique and beautiful. I personally enjoyed 'Moon... More

Best place for beginners to learn. They are very professional. We were on a cruise ship and I wanted my son to get some type of experience with diving other than a pool. They offer an afternoon diving experience where you actually go out in the water and dive down to a helicopter wreck, a plane wreck, and several other... More

I am an experienced diver with nearly 100 dives. I spent ten days in the french side of the Island (which is a delight by the way) for Spring break 2014. My Saint Martin resident friends advised me to dive with this club, on the dutch side, as it is apparently known as the most reliable one. The extra miles... More

I would not recommend Scuba Fun. We were supposed to dive March 4, 2014 at 130pm but we did not get started until 245pm because they were teaching a class to non-certified divers. They should have taken our group of 3 out first instead of making us wait. We were charged $5.00 each when I booked through Shore Trips for... More

I visited St Maarten with a cruise on 25th February 2014. As previous reviews have pointed out I could have saved money by booking with the centre directly but as it was my first visit I booked through a cruise excursion. My 12 year old son and I were very impressed by the professional instruction that we received both before... More

I did the 'discover scuba diving' and absolutely loved it! Having never done any scuba diving before I was literally terrified, but all of the instructors, particularly Jonnie who was our groups instructor, were so wonderful that I managed to overcome it all to enjoy a fantastic experience. So worth it on such a wonderful island.

How could I call it just wonderful? I was seasick. The captain, divemasters, even the other divers were incredibly kind to me. It was bumpy. We dove the Carib Cargo wreck, followed by the Proselyte wreck and reef. Along with countless other fish, there were rays and lobsters at the Carib, and reef sharks and a lion fish at the... More

I did my open water diving certification course with Scuba Fun while on vacation. I went in four days in one week to do all of my theory and dive sessions, so I got to know everyone on staff pretty well. Everyone at Scuba Fun was super friendly and encouraging (shout out to my boys Manu, Etienne, and Jonnie). They... More
