This dive was an excursion during my cruise with Holland America. After losing my chance to dive on Grand Turk due to weather and poor visibility, I was grateful for this excursion and 2-tank dives provided by Underwater Safaris. While the initial 1-hour waiting at Crown Bay for the representative to arrive and handle paperwork gave me a restless feeling,... More

Booked my dive on the cruise ship web site. This company was on time for our pick up. Large group with guests from another ship. About 20 divers on board. Great dive master and their team. 2 tank dive, safe depths, and back to the cruise ships in plenty of time. Highly recommend this company when in St Thomas.

It is great that SCUBA dives are offered from the cruise ships, and this is no exception. It is also good that this firm will accept snorkelers for a fee paid direct (arrange with them separate), so your spouse can tag along and snorkel while you dive. Only issue is there are better rated dive companies (conveniently available right off... More

My husband and I booked a two tank dive excursion through Carnival (Conquest) Cruise line and couldn't have been happier! Tim was easy to find the second we stepped off the gangway, and make the check in process super easy. After a short walk down the boardwalk, we boarded their boat and it got better from there. The entire crew,... More

If you are a beginner and have zero experience this is for you. Certified divers wishing for a more adavanced should go elsewhere. If we had known they put DSDs on the boat with certified divers we would have booked with someone else instead of wasting our money and valuable vacation time. When on a cruise ship be certain to...

These guys have been doing this for a long time and I did my first dive with them ten years ago and if I recall at the time they had their office set up in Havensight Mall, but I guess that got expensive competing with jewelry stores for space.. oh well. They were great then and they still are. I... More
