First time in 30 years that I dove the south end of St Thomas, I usually end up on the east end. Went out one day with Duane and seen a couple different sites. Nice diving, nice operators even if I didnt get to see that seahorse Ive been looking for.

I was tasked to organize scuba/snorkeling for about 100 colleges in St. Thomas on a corporate reward trip. Owner, Duane, responded quickly to my email inquiry and crafted a solution by partnering with a local snorkeling operator to provide diving for 10 and snorkeling for 95. One stop shopping. My colleagues had a spectacular time whether they were diving or... More

We have become quite the cruisers of late and especially enjoy waking up in a different port of call that offers terrific diving but anyone who cruises knows that the excursions offered aboard ship are routinely overpriced and often disappointing and when it comes to diving you get packed onto a dive boat with a bunch of other people of...

I've always dove the east end while in St. Thomas but this trip decided to try something more near town, and I'm glad we did. Dwayne our Dive Master was excellent and really knew his stuff. He's obviously been around awhile and does things his way, which may have led to some of the more negative reviews that I see... More

Duane and his dive instructor/guide, Beau, led us on 2 gorgeous reef dives near Water Island. Duane's easy manner and steady captaincy made us feel safe & secure. The MR2 Duck was a trusty vessel and provided everything we needed for excellent dives. My husband and I are both PADI Advanced divers and we've dived with over a dozen dive... More

I got certified for PADI Open Water diving. I felt like my training was very detailed and thorough! Duane is extremely knowledgeable and patient. He has a new assistant, Molly, who also participated in the training. She did great! I felt very safe and very prepared to SCUBA once certified.

Duane and his extra sweet and nice wife are the owners of Admiralty Dive Shop. They are a VERY professional small dive shop who gave us the perfect dive on our Cruise Ship stop in St Thomas. His wife picked us up at the ship along with two world traveler divers and drove us (for free) ten minutes to the... More

Three family members went on a two tank dive with Duane. We were disappointed. It felt like the captain and crew were just going through the motions, taking us to two shallow dive spots close to the harbor that weren't very remarkable. The onboard instructions regarding what direction to explore given in advance of each dive were unclear or were... More

This was my second visit to Admirality and they never fail to impress. The past few days have been really windy with rough seas, and I still had a great time. There are several great dive sites around the area close to the dive center. Duane and Jerry seem to select sites based on the prevailing ability of the guests... More

Dove in ST-Thomas with admiralty dive center, not impressed. Where to start....the boat is old and needs maintenance, the dive sites were chosen based on location (close to the dive shop for convenience) not water and wind conditions like I'm used to by most dive shops. Therefore the water was very rough and poor visibility. 8 people in a very... More
