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.

Sam and Lisa took us on a cruise to remember in February 2015! We spent the day visiting multiple St Thomas sites, including a lunch stopover at Marina Cay, a visit to the Baths, and a perfect end to the day at the Soggy Dollar Bar. The experience itself was incredible, but Sam and Lisa made it all the more... More

Our group of eight chartered a boat with Aqua Action in February of 2015, and would highly recommend this private charter option to anyone considering visiting multiple locations in the USBVI. Our specific itinerary included a visit to the Baths at Virgin Gorda, lunch at Marina Cay, snorkeling at Monkey Point (gear included) and a leisurely stop at Jost Van... More

While staying at Secret Harbour Beach Resort in February 2015, my group took a 1/2 day snorkeling and beach trip on the Ocean Explorer through the Aqua Action Dive Center. I was impressed by the service provided by the entire staff at Aqua Action. Some members of my group are novice snorkelers, and Captain Sam and Lisa did a great... More

While spending a week at Secret Harbour Beach Resort, we utilized the services of Aqua Action Dive Center numerous times. Diane and all members of her staff were all very helpful. We rented snorkeling gear and a kayak from them. In addition, they made all the arrangements for our day trip on the Daydreamer catamaran. We found that the selection... More

I enjoyed my experience with Aqua, they made us feel at home. We are locals and they are happy to include us in their dives with other locals or tourists. Beautiful scenery and great staff. Will return

I arrived at Secret Harbor to snorkel, and my newly purchased mask from home was leaking and fogging up so I went into Aqua Action to rent another mask. They helped me fix the mask for free, just being nice. I ended up taking a trip in their dive boat over to Buck Island which was totally worth the $70... More

We booked several activities with Aqua Action the week after Christmas including diving, snorkeling, a private boat tour of the BVI for the day, and kayak rentals. Everyone we interacted with was knowledgable, polite and very welcoming. The location was ideal for us in the Red Hook area, and we enjoyed the adjacent dining and beach area after our activities....

We had a wonderful day with Sam and Diane. They are both extremely knowledgeable and made us feel comfortable in every way. We got to "island hop" and snorkel during our day outing. We would have gone again during our trip if they weren't already booked. They gave us the appropriate amount of time to spend on each island while... More

We rented a kayak here. Despite it being Christmas Eve, with the store packed to the gills, the staff was lovely. This is more than a dive center; It is also a really nice gift store. We bought a lovely hand painted mug and a St. Thomas Christmas ornament.
