Dove "Missed Opportunity" wreck dive and a reef dive (saw a sea turtle!). Boat did have bad exhaust which ruined 2nd dive for my boyfriend as he got sick from breathing it. Only had two other divers on the boat which was nice.

I just recently stopped by not knowing what to expect but looking for some spearfishing gear on a used gun I just purchased. Not only did the owner help me get the gun back up-and-running (trigger was sticking, bands were shot, missing shaft, etc.) he went above and beyond taking his time to help be better understand the sport and...

I've been going out with these guys every time I'm in St Thomas for many years. It's not fancy but a true dive outfit! They are great with conservation, aquatic life and local information. I wish I had time to go out with them when I will be in town next week!!

Had 4 awesome dives with admiralty last week ,wish we had time for more owner and dive leader Duane and his knowledge of not only the dive sites but the aquatic life at each site made each dive fun and educational. Thank for the great time!

I completed my Advanced Open Water certification with the folks at Admiralty, and I thoroughly enjoyed myself with them. From the beginning, Laura was responsive via email, and helped explain everything I needed to know. She also helped me set up the reservation over the phone and was the first person I saw when I came into the shop upon... More

As a new diver, I was a little nervous about my first real dives but these guys made it an absolutely wonderful experience! They took care of my equipment and made sure that everything went smoothly (they even recommended something to keep me from getting seasick!). Duane knew everything I could have wanted to know about the reefs, and made... More

Relaxed, comfortable, laid-back describes Duane and Jerry. The only diver for the day which afforded me extra attention being a relatively new diver after a 20 year hiatus. Safety conscious, local historian, no frills, and all around good guys describe a great day of diving Missed Opportunity and several other locations around St. Thomas.

Diving with Dwayne with Admiralty Dive was a great experience! The vis that day was so so but he was super attentive, diligent and went over and above in pointing out small sea life that we would not have otherwise seen (even with good vis)---all in all a great diving experience---he genuinely loves the sea and it shows! Loves people,... More

I've been diving for a long time and been to the Caribbean numerous times. I've never had more fun than I've had with Duane. He provided a lot of personal attention including cleaning and storing our gear each night and switching the tanks on the boat. He could also answer any question you had about the sealife or coral. It... More

I've been diving for over 27 years, and Admiralty is one of the best dive shops I've seen. The staff are all professional, knowledgeable and friendly...including owner and dive leader Duane, boat captain Jerry (gotta love that boy Jerry) and Paul. My 4 kids were trained and certified by Duane last year, and had a ball doing 4 dives together... More
