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

The team of Demian and Soinet were extremely knowledgeable , taking the time to discuss island geography , what we were about to see below... More

Sept 1st through 12th was our 1st visit to St. Maarten. Dive Adventures is an exceptional dive operation. We booked several trips and each one of them became a wonderful memory for us. The outstanding crew of the "Dive Machine" are all very professional. They go out of their way to make you feel welcome and comfortable. The crew work... 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

What a fantastic group of people, felt at ease with them from start to finish, I took my PADI open water dive course with Milica. My youngest daughter Olivia was already qualified and I decided to join her diving while on our holiday. When out over the reefs, fish bowl, mazes, wrecks of ships etc, we were really well looked...

After diving with this company for seven years now I have never had a bad experience with them. The staff is wonderful and they are willing to work with you to make your diving adventures fit in perfectly with your vacation. This year we did four dives and didn't hit the same spot twice which was nice that we were... More

Went on my first ocean dive this year with two of my sons. One did the scuba experience with Damien while the other had his c-card and went on a real dive with me. I had not been diving in years and went on a quick refresher dive before going out with Dive Adventures. Both of us woefully underestimated the... More

We did the full day trip out to Prickly Pear to do some snorkeling. The island is beautiful and the snorkeling is really fun. Save room to gorge on cheese and apples on the boat rides for a great snack. The lunch we had on the island was excellent as well. All and all an amazing trip. Would definitely recommend... More

I love dive adventures when diving in Saint Martin! This was our second diving vacation with them and they are great! I love Damien and Swanee and this year we had Yourno (spelling it the way it sounds), who was also great! They make sure you are safe and enjoy your dive trip. I had some problems with the first...
