After several emails to the operator explaining that I was unable to successfully complete open water certification but I was scuba diver certified, I was put into Discover Scuba upon arrival. My local instructor emailed this outfit and explained the situation and provided documentation on my skills. Dive Adventures basically ignored the email and put me in Discover Scuba. This... More

The reason you were put on a discover scuba dive is because you contacted us many, not several times explaining that you were not comfortable and not sure if you could do this. Your instructor who started your training there in the U.S. contacted us and told us you were uncomfortable and needed a personal instructor for you first ocean... More

Dive Adventures is a first class operation that excels in customer service. My girlfriend and I took the PADI open water E-learning course and chose Dive Adventures for our certification dives. Milica trained us and is very knowledgeable, supportive and patient. The two deep water dives had an amazing amount of sea life that I'll remember forever. Unfortunately my girlfriend... More

I dived with six different dive shops on several islands across Caribbean and by now this is one of the best places, that I am going to miss a lot during the long cold winter evenings. And I am talking not only about wrecks and great underwater wildlife of Marine Park, which includes sharks, turtles and stingrays among others. I... More

I made an OWD course by Dive Adventures with Jarno. He is an excellent instructor and exactly the one I wanted to complete this course with. Jarno is attentive, careful and strict enough to make me do all the PADI stuff until I did it well and confidently. He has never pushed on me and was very patient. I felt... More

My wife and I dove six dives with Dive Adventures last week. As any experienced diver knows, safety is about how one handles the unexpected. The captain, Swani, the dive master, Milica (pronounced "Melissa") and assistant Anouk handled several surprises with great care. Of course, they took us to great dive sites and showed us truly incredible sights, but anyone... More

Simply put, Dive Adventures is the best dive operation in the Caribbean! Vinny's dive team of Sandra, Anne, Demian, and Soinet always provide for a safe, fun experience regardless of the diver's experience level. I've been actively diving for 22 years primarily throughout the Caribbean and have found that no other dive operation comes close to the relaxed, professional level... More
