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.

My husband and I booked last minute after we got married early that morning, and it was a perfect private excursion for newlyweds! We went out to turtle cove by Buck island. We rode on the newer boat that they have, which is definatly built for speed and was a lot of fun to ride. We snorkeled with the sea... More

We did smirking/ swim with the turtles. It was pretty good. They took us out a few miles to an area where the sea turtles hangout and we got in and swam around with them. Then they took us over to some old sunken rusty boat. That wasn't as fun as the turtles though. I enjoyed it. I forgot the... More

I spent 3 days diving with Aqua Action, and each was better than the day before. The dive masters were outstanding, and they gave my friend and ,I an exciting tour of the reefs and a wreck.

Aqua Action is the best dive shop on St Thomas. I have made multiple dives with them and each time the professionalism is only over shadowed by their friendliness. I have seen them work with handicapped divers and it is an amazing thing. I know they babe been involved with the wounded warrior program and they have had Make a... More

My husband, 14 y.o. son, and I spent a fun afternoon with Sam, Jim, and Erin. Jim had already given my son his first scuba lesson and was a great teacher. While he dove with my husband, son, and one other teen boy, Erin snorkeled with me. I have leg braces and leg weakness. Erin was a perfect assistant. Her... More

Friendly, knowledgeable, and dedicated. Equipment well maintained. Masks are new, don't leak. My son took the 'hotel checkout dive' called Discover Scuba with Jim. Jim is a very skilled, seasoned instructor who has seen it all and can comfort and identify any issue- my son didn't think he could equalize his ears...Jim showed him different ways to accomplish this above...

This is a five-star dive shop in every sense of the superlative. The staff was extremely knowledgeable, professional, and fun. I plan to return to this shop my next time in St Thomas and recommend it to all of my friends. I've been diving for 14 years and my wife just got certified right before this trip. They catered to...

I took my class and pool work in Ohio but wanted to rush my open water dives (plus avoid the dark and cold waters of Ohio's quarries). I was on a cruise so I did my first two dives in Puerto Rico and then did dives 3&4 in with Aqua Action. The boat was great and my instructor/guide was fantastic.... More

I have been diving with Aqua Action for guite a while. So , it would be redundant of me to say again, what a professionall and friendly operation this is. The location of the dive shop is the best on St. Tom. Secret Harbor. My recent dive trip included leaving 7 family members behind on the beach. I don't think... More

Aqua Action is based in Secret Harbour, which is a great place to stay if scuba is a focus for your trip. There were 12 close sites, no more than a 20 minute boat ride. We did a 80 foot dive, a night dive to see giant sleeping turtles, and a shallow dive at Turtle Cove seeing over a dozen... More
