My boyfriend and I stayed at the Renaissance Carambola St. Croix on vacation last week and had the opportunity to do some great diving with the awesome team at Sweet Bottom! Before getting to St. Croix, I completed my classroom and pool work for my open water certification, so I just needed to finish my check-out dives when we got... More

I consider myself lucky to have met the owner Mark and his family while staying at Renaissance St. Croix. Their dive center is located at the resort, within walking distance to the beach. The crew they have in place is top notch in every aspect. Safety minded and professional, yet fun at the same time. It's clear that this is... More

Stayed at the Carambola and dove with Sweet Bottom Dive Center with the new owners. The new owners have put new regulators, BCD's, tanks and shorty wetsuits in rental. They have dive packages available that include all of the best diving St. Croix has to offer. Their attention to customer service is outstanding. They know diving but more importantly they... More

I'm a frequent visitor to Carambola. Most of my gear has been purchased over the years at Sweet Bottom Dive. I cannot dive for medical reasons. But I can snorkel for hours. At the edge of the Davis Wall I can look down and see frogmen. It's an unreal location. No jet skis ... nothing. Ancient anchors. Docile reef sharks.... More

Went out with Julie for a one tank dive in Davis Bay. Saw a shark, huge lobster, and a sea turtle...among many other things! Great shop here and convenient for those staying on property. Very happy to have gone out with Sweet Bottom.

Excellent experience. Overall a very easy dive. Your dive gear is brought to the beach via golf cart. The reef is on ly 75 yards from the beach in about 45' of water. Jon was very informative and knew the reef well. Many underwater sites, from turtles to extravagant coral. The Renaissance is well maintained and the service was spot... More

As promised, I returned to Sweet Bottom this year to learn to Scuba Dive, FINALLY! It was everything I hoped it would be and more, and the reason is this place...why? From Gonzo my dive instructor - literally one of the friendliest, funniest, instantly-put-you-at-ease people ever! - to Tim the office manager, who so wonderfully patient and worked very hard...
