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

Duane is a cool guy! Who leaves their engineering job in Seattle to buy a dive shop in St Thomas? Duane that's who... living the dream.

We had an very good experience with our friends at Admiralty Dive Centre…they picked us up on time at our port and we were on board their boat, ready to go within a half hour. They took us to some great dive spots, allowing us the time to really check thing out. We even had the chance to pet a... More

I had read the reviews before booking and was apprehensive at first but decided that the person who wrote previous bad reviews was venting and decided to book anyway. We were not disappointed, Duane, Brent and Jerry were great and very knowledgeable about the area with Duane having been in St. Thomas for over 20 years. We received some local... More

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
