After days of uncertainty on the weather and swell, we finally were able to book a dive and enroll the kids in a Discover Scuba class. After some instruction and pool time the kids were ready for their 1st dive. Greg, Mel and Matt were the dive instructors and so both kids had their own instructor, while my wife and... More

The convenience of walking from your room to the dive center located on the beach & not having to ride several miles or minutes to a dive site is worth it all! Stan took 2 morning dives for three days & one night dive downtown Fredericksted at the cruise ship pier! His dive master the first couple of days was... More

My wife and I recently celebrated our 25th anniversary at Renaissance Carambola where Sweet Bottom Dive Center is located. I have been a certified diver since 1985 and have never been able to get my wife to try it. She decided to try it and took the Discover Scuba class from Melinda. I have to say that had it not...

Over the last week my husband and I had the most extraordinary vacation in St. Croix which was topped off by incredible scuba diving with Sweet Bottom Dive Center. We had 6 dives both guided (night and Cane Bay) as well as independent shore dives from the resort. Mel and Greg were top notch, meeting and exceeding our every need... More

Great spot to go scuba diving with tons of stuff to see. The staff there is really friendly and they helped me out with everything I needed to go dive. This is one of the best places to go in St. Croix for sure. For the price you can't beat Sweet Bottom Dive Center. I will be going again the... More

The Sweet Bottom Dive shop, run by Mel and Greg Gapen, is fantastic. Whether you've been diving for years or this is your first time, I highly highly recommend diving with them. Our dive instructor, Katie, was phenomenal. She helped us brush up on our skills, made sure we practiced the fundamentals, and did so enthusiastically and with a smile... More

Have to thank the awesome staff at Sweet Bottom, Greg, Mel, and Bailey in particular, for the amazing weekend getting Rescue Dive certified. Although my niece and I were treated to an awesome dive earlier in the summer - where the wall, a friendly reef shark, and fun encounter with a colorful and ornery octopus kept us smiling into our...

It was a great find when we traveled to St Croix ,Carambola Resort where we found Sweet Bottom Dive Center. It was a little out of the way, but with excellent hosts Greg, Mel, Katie and Dana we were well taken care of for shore diving. Their valet service was exceptionally nice!! Thank you all for great diving.

The basics for a great dive were all covered at Sweet Bottom. What sets them apart are all the extras. The staff is all experienced and excited about being there to assist you. Little things like having guest storage for your gear made diving there so easy. Dana, Katie, Mel & Greg were all our guides and had so much... More

Great diving and lots of personal attention at Sweet Bottom Dive Center. We did 4 wonderful dives with them- 2 shore dives in Davis Bay with healthy reefs, walls and sand chutes and lots to look at including turtles and reef sharks. Dana was our guide and did a great job making us all feel very comfortable. I had some... More
