Demian and Sarno, the dive masters, were great. They handled all levels of divers very well and gave excellent briefings and site information. Captain Soinet was a very professional boat driver. The diving itself was good. The reefs are good though not the best I have seen in the Caribbean; however, there are a number of easily divable wrecks which... More

We are 2 DMs that have dove many places with many different dive operations. This dive operation is first class, from loading the boat, dive briefing including history of site, safety and information signs for underwater. The DM for the dives was Demian, he did a great job finding and showing everyone the underwater sea life and artifacts. In our... More

I had awesome diving the last two weeks with Demian & Swaney. They are very friendly and the customer is important to them. I highly recommend diving with Dive Adventures. They get booked through Aquamania. I had a very good experience diving with Dive Adventures.

Dive Adventures is a good dive operation. They are safety conscious and customer service oriented. Vinny helped us with a depth console when ours quit working. Demian does a great job leading the dives. Swaney the boat captain takes good care of us on the boat. They have a large cooler on the boat. They have water, soda after each... More

It had been nearly a year since my last dive and I went out with a very experienced group. The experience was awesome with a little help from everyone especially the dive team that kept an eye on me the first dive to make the dive special. They were very professional and were one of the best companies I've ever... More

I wanted an easy dive to start after a few years off... Instructor Demian was extremely knowledgeable and patient! This included him reminding me to get things I otherwise would have forgotten at the dive center. Had a great shallow dive with him checking up on all of us throughout the dive. Capt Soinet also assisted on board and made... More

We went on a two-tank dive. Soinet drove the boat and Demian was our divemaster. Both were great. There were a total of 5 divers in our group. I understand that they will not have more than 5 divers per divemaster. The dives at Fish Bowl and Maze were very nice. There were many barracuda. We some one turtle, a... More

I had a pleasure of diving with Instructors Demian, Milica and Cptn.Soinet on Feb 16-17. With the strong wind on the first day (Feb16) the sea was a bit rough and made getting back on the boat seem like a never-ending nightmare, but I am glad they didn't cancel the trip as the dive itself underwater was pretty good. As... More

I just got back from a dive with Dive Adventures and WOW! In addition to scuba diving, these guys really understand customer service, attention to details, and hospitality. I was pleased with the entire experience. The dive master was named Demian. He and the captain warmly great you, help you board and get your gear all set up. Then that... More

This was a fantastic experience, from booking to the actual experience! We did the Discover Scuba program at the Divi resort location, which is beautiful. Demian was a great instructor; very helpful and patient with us. He was fun but serious when it came to making sure we were always safe. We had a wonderful time and now are hooked... More
