Had a couple of nice dives with these guys last summer. Duane knows so much and is willing to share his knowledge of the flora and fauna of the area. The dives themselves are good but not spectacular. The boat had a few issues; Duane mentioned he had fixed a few things but apparently needed to fix some more. The... More

Fantastic diving experience! I cannot recommend these guys enough. We were the only two people diving that day, but the crew made sure we had a great time. They were accommodating, patient, and made us feel we were in good hands. We saw a medley off great fish, a sea turtle, and learned a bunch of great info along the... More

This is not a fancy-pants dive operation. The boat is small but gets the job done. Bring your own water and a snack, just to be safe. They are right in Charlotte Amalie, so close to a cruise ship. If you are an experienced diver and want to avoid the cattle car dive boats, these guys will suit your needs.... More

Best thing about our vacation. Duane and his crew run a nice operation. Duane knows his sea life and will educate you in everything you'll experience down under. On this trip we saw moray and Mantis Shrimp among other sea life. And its the only operation that will pick you up at your hotel. Can't beat that.

My family of five (2 freshly certified) wanted to get a dive in while on a Carnival cruise. We chose to set up a dive on our own and passed on using the cruise excursions desk and save $25 per person. Fortunately, I got off the ship early to hustle up a dive and wound up with Duane and Admiralty... More

While St. Thomas is not on my list of 10 best dive locations, Admiralty Dive Center, and particularly Duane, makes my 10 best dive operations list. After reviewing TripAdvisor, Undercurrents, and ScubaBoard, Admiralty appeared to be the best choice, and we glad we chose them. Duane is incredibly knowledgeable about the sea creatures at the various dive sites. He shares... More

We dived with Duane, Brent and Jerry. They were prepared and careful. Helped one of us get certified and knew all the PADI procedures. Good crew.

We rented their equipment while chartering out of CYOA. They are very friendly, however their rental equipment was junk. One BCD had a hole in it so it didn't hold air and four out the six tanks we rented had to have their O-rings replaced. We will continue to rent from them, I just hope the reliability of their equipment... More

This was actually the best dive shop that I ever experienced diving in the islands. Duane knew pretty much everything about the sea life in the area as well as the things to do on land. We dove with him every day for five days and we're not disappointed at all. I was not looking for amenities, I can bring... More
