Shop owners Mel and Greg could not have been nicer or more helpful. I went on 4 shore dives to the wall with their dive master, Gonzalo. He was excellent! We had a great time. Each dive was special in its own way. It was such a pleasure to be able to walk out of my room at the Carambola... More

The dive shop is located on the Resort of Renaissance Carambola Beach. I have never taken a lesson from a resort or shop before, but having previous dive experience, I wanted my wife who is " frightful" of the whole breathing under the water thing, to take a course.

We made a day stop here from the cruise, just wish it was longer as I would have loved to have dived more with this company. The staff are super friendly and very helpful. The dive was awesome with so many things to see. Our first and only dive unfortunately, we saw Turtles, Kjesar Fish and plenty of sharks. Don't... More

Our 3 adult children took the resort course and we parents took the refresher course. The instructors were excellent and took us on a great shore drive. I appreciated the 2:1 student to instructor ratio. I highly recommend. Much better than other resort courses we have done on vacations where instruction is in the ocean rather than the pool!

Stayed at Carambola resort and also did six dives with Sweet Water. Mel and Greg are the best dive masters in the world. They are really instructors, but we just used them for guided dives. We got to do four dives with them and they are so much fun. They really enjoy diving and finding sea creatures and that it... More

Sweet bottom is in the Carambola resort and just a short swim to beautiful wall diving! Mel, Greg and all the DM staff were wonderful and very accommodating. I recently had back surgery and had to take it easy and they were all willing to help to do whatever to "lug" the gear for me and make sure I had... More

A fantastic location for shore diving on the wall at Carabola Beach. Greg and Mel run a tight ship, with friendly, experienced and dedicated customer service. Their divemasters are excellent divers and guides, friendly, and experienced. The rental gear is perfectly maintained. There is storage for personal gear, shower, rinse area, a small shop for those little things you intentionally... More

I have wanted to SCUBA dive my whole life. I finally got a chance when my wife and I were recently visiting St. Croix. Actually, we chose the island just for the diving opportunites. I contacted Greg and got my online PADI training out of the way online. Then, when we came in October I had all my confined and... More
