The team knows perfectly its work: as well Soinet the Captain, as Demian and Michel excellent diving leaders. Both will take into account your individual capabilities without limiting the other divers. The boat is extremely convenient : there is a lot of space to prepare yourself, to dive in the water and to come back into the boat. There is... More

Thank you for this raving review! We love hearing from our divers on TripAdvisor, sharing your experience is very important for people who are still considering a dive shop. Diving is a skillful sport and therefore reviews about the equipment, dive masters and dive sites are extremely useful for people travelling to St. Maarten for a dive adventure! Hopefully we...

Do you believe in miracles? Thanks to the amazing staff @ Dive Adventures, I do! While vacationing @ the Divi Little Bay Resort in December, I lost my wedding band in the ocean while snorkeling with my wife of 27 + years. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would see it again, let alone so quickly. Vinny,... More

My husband and I brought our teenaged children to get certified and experience their first open water dives. Everyone at Dive Adventures was wonderful and we ended up having a great experience. Michelle took the kids on a sample dive, then spent the day doing skills in the pool and open water, then again on their first "real" dives. He... More

There are few things a company has to do to make me happy. The number one thing that I need - to feel valued and as though my business matters. A third party had not made my reservation. So I get there at 8:30am as instructed and no one knows what's going on. It finally gets sorted at 9:05 and... More
