I quite enjoyed this dive crew. Michel and Melissa were very knowledgeable and super friendly. I am a certified diver, so I'd recommend only going on the morning dives because they can experience the most. Afternoon dives are for reviewing and those that aren't certified and want to discover. I plan on diving with this team again!!

My Dad, brother in law and myself completes are open water certification here. Our dive master Milica was so patient and really made getting certified a joy. My Dad cannot stop telling people how great it was. Captain Soniet and Damien were also great and after the dives were over the cold beer was even better. We saw sharks, and... More

The dive team was fantastic, my wife finished her referral dives for her Advanced Open Water on the first two days. The conditions were not the best but the diving was still great, got to swim with some sharks, dive some wrecks and saw a lot of marine life. Staff and service was exceptional.

We visit the dive shop every trip. It is like coming home to see the friendly faces of Capt Soinet, my new EANx instructor Demian. Milica is always cheerful and helpful on dives.

I went to St. Maarten on a whim and decided to complete my advanced open water certification while there. I chose Dive Adventures because of all the very positive reviews on this site.

Top company and top people. Had a great day and felt like I was treated like a friend rather than just a paying customer.
