My wife and I cruised in St. Thomas in December 2014. We have always found that diving with independent operators leads to much better diving than booking with the cruise ship excursions desk for a dive. So, for our day in St. Thomas, we set up a trip with Admiralty Dive Center. Unfortunately, the night before our arrival, Admiralty had... More

We recently went on Duane's dive boat and the experience was awesome. His wife, who is also really great, picked us up right at the cruise ship dock. My partner is a certified diver and I am not but I had a great time snorkeling off the boat while the rest of the team went on their dive. I would... More

I was referred to Admiralty Dive Center by another local dive operator when what I thought was a confirmed reservation (via telephone) was not honored after submitting the on-line form. I am SO glad the first reservation fell through because my day with Admiralty was SUPER! I was only in St. Thomas for a one-day port call aboard the Regal... More

Duane, the owner provided us with great service & 2 great dives. We were picked up at the cruise ship dock free of charge & transported to the marina. Our pre-dive briefing was the most detailed briefing I have ever had in my 19 years of diving. We had a great day. Although it is a small dive operation the... More

first I will say that the dive master really knew his stuff when talking about the sea life. My husband 68 yrs. old and me 64 yrs old have had over fifty dives in the last three years. We are the oldest on most boats and they were helpful getting us in and out the water. That being said their... More

My husband and I spent 2 weeks on St Thomas last month. During each of the 2 weeks we invited another couple to stay with us. Each couple included a newly certified SCUBA diver. We dove a total of 6 days--12 dives. This is what we liked about their shop: Duane, owner/dive master is a wealth of information, which he... More

This Dive Center went out of their way to help us find another company for us to dive with while on vacation in St Thomas - we were so impressed by their professionalism and kindness. We received a Dwayne a week in advance - he wanted to let us know that he was unable to take us diving due to... More

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
