Description: Aqua Action Dive Center is a PADI Five-Star Instructor Development Dive...
Aqua Action Dive Center is a PADI Five-Star Instructor Development Dive and Snorkel Resort located at Secret Harbour Beach Resort on beautiful St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. Our focus is on custom-tailored dive and snorkel trips, individual training (beginner through instructor!), and small, fun groups of people! Enjoy a morning or afternoon dive or snorkel trip on our 30' Dive Boat, Ocean Express. Diving not your thing? Why not plan a half- or full-day trip on our excursion boat - a 35' Intrepid, Ocean Explorer! With plenty of seating (both sun and shade), you can visit the beautiful St. John beaches for some great snorkeling or sightseeing. And with plenty of speed, you can plan a trip to the Baths, Jost Van Dyke, or the Willy-T in the British Virgin Islands. Breakfast, snacks, and open bar on all of our Ocean Explorer trips! Rather not be on a boat? No worries - you can just hang back on our beach and enjoy the clear, calm waters of Secret Harbour - we offer beach chairs, kayaks, paddle boats, stand-up paddleboards, snorkeling (the best on St. Thomas!), a beautiful white sand beach and a beach side bar and bistro.

Let me start by saying I have visited many islands when cruising throughout the Caribbean and gone on many snorkel adventures. This was the best and the highlight of our cruise! Our morning started with Sam picking us up in the 35’ boat just a short walk from where the ship docked. It was a beautiful ride to our first... More

Aqua Action is friendly, professional, and responsive. We took the Discover Scuba class as well as a family snorkeling trip to Turtle Cove. I highly recommend both! The Discover Scuba class provided us the basic skills as taught by Rick, our experienced and personable instructor, and then we were in the water. He did a great job making us feel... More

Friendly staff and comfortable rentals made for a great beach day at secret harbor beach. We were outfitted with chairs, a canopy and a double kayak and enjoyed the lovely beach and its waters. We got to see crabs, sea turtles and a sting ray, plus several varieties of fish.

We didn't have a group for diving- just snorkeling. They took excellent care of the "newbies," and the overall experience was wonderful! Will definitely use Aqua Action again!

I've been down here every Feb the past 4 years and always go diving with Aqua Action. Nice dive sites they go to, the store is well equipped. My wife stays behind on the beach at Secret harbor, shes not a diver. When you get off the boat at noon, Cruzan Beach Club is right there for drink and food.

Can't say enough good things about Aqua Action, Jim and his crew at Secret Harbour accommodated us perfectly, my three kids had never scuba dove before, he did the beginner course with them, then took them over for another scuba adventure a couple of days later at Coki Beach, they saw and learned things that they will remember for a...

As a scuba diving novice, I had many concerns and questions before diving but the team at Aqua Action was awesome - completely thorough and took great care of me! The experience overall was top notch and I fell in love with the adventure sport. Will be back on our next trip to USBVI!

My boyfriend and I recently visit Secret Harbour and were referred to Aqua Action more than once. Our first stop in the shop was to rent a kayak and SUP to take around the bay. Lisa was more than helpful with the rental and upon our return, she arranged for us a Discover Scuba class and two-tank dive and offered... More

went on a two tank boat dive. The captain and two dive masters were very friendly and nice. I am a beginner diver and was very nervous about diving from a boat. My husband is more advanced diver but the dive worked out well for both of us, they were located at the villa resort where we were staying so... More
