Spent our 26th wedding anniversary with Duane and Jerry obtaining our PADI Advanced Diving Certification. Duane is ridiculously knowledgeable. He reviewed things with us on the training dives, then when we went to go through the online portion in the evenings, it was a piece of cake because Duane had already covered everything with us. In addition, Duane is extremely... More

Duane, Laura & Jerry run a very good outfit here in St Thomas! Duane knows more than any marine biologist can possibly tell you! Safe, knowledgable, reasonable and fun! We did 4 dives & despite having to work around Tropical Storm Bertha, we had a wonderful time! My only critique is they don't have any water or fruit on board... More

We would highly recommend Admiralty Dive Center. Excellent customer service and one of the most knowledgeable Dive Guide on the Island! They were very accommodating and flexible with our schedule. They took us to dive sites that some of the other dive shops do not go to (they have over 120 dive sites they take customers to - many more... More

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!!

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.
