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.

As a relatively new diver I felt completely safe with Jim, our dive master for all 4 dives! His knowledge of St. Thomas's reefs allowed us to see Eagle Rays, Sharks, huge corals, walls full of life and tons of beautiful fish! The boat experience was the best I have had diving! These guys are definately who you want to... More

In more than 15 years of diving, I've been to over 100 sites around the world, yet keep coming back to Aqua Action - my favorite dive shop. There is great diving to be had in the Bahamas, Mexico, Hawaii, and other expensive and remote locations, but if you find yourself near the VI, Aqua Action offers a consistently enjoyable... More

My friends and I booked the Turtle Cove snorkeling tour, we loved it! Lisa and Rick are very knowledgeable about the marine life in St. Thomas as well as other interesting facts about the other outlying islands. I would recommend this tour to anyone!!

On a recent cruise, we booked directly with Aqua Action Dive Center to snorkel with the turtles. We were with two families that were staying on the island. We arrived at Turtle Cove before most of the cruise ship excursions arrived. Lisa swam with us, and directed us to the turtles, fish, and coral. She dove down with our underwater... More

I recently had a group on a cruise & instead of booking a shore excursion through the cruise line, we booked a day with Aqua Action. Great choice & as a travel agent, I would highly recommend Aqua Action to all of my cruise clients & those staying on St. Thomas. Sam & Lisa took great care of us &... More

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.
