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.

Amy got in the water with us and was so knowledgeable and informative. She has a true passion for the safety and well being of the turtles and fish which I truly admire.... More

I cannot overstate how much fun we had with the Aqua Action Dive Center crew ! From the dive shop staff, to the Captain, to our snorkeling guide, Amy, everyone was friendly, knowledgeable and interesting. We were lucky enough to be the only ones on the boat the day we signed up. I expected them to cancel due to low... More

AA provides a great dive experience for locals and visitors alike. Great locals rate. Trip was well run. Dive master Amy paid close attention to all the divers and provided assistance when necessary. Their location is also a plus as well as Secret Harbour Beach Resort has a great beach and beach bar and restaurant for relaxing after the dive.... More

I just can't rave enough about Aqua Action and their employees! Prices-unbelievably reasonable. Rented snorkeling equipment around noon for a full day($20). A full day actually allows you to take them back to the room for the night and get another full morning in. Great touch when you have small kids and they get tired after a while. Our family... More

Aqua Action made our vacation great! We spent a week in St Thomas and the highlight of our trip was our excursion with AA to the British Virgin Islands aboard Ocean Explorer. We didn't know exactly what there was to do or see, so Sam, our awesome captain, gave us many options and recommendations, and they were spot on. We... More

We spent 10 days diving with Erin, Diane, Lisa and Sam. We were able to hit many dive sites and saw lots of marine life with this terrific crew. We hope to return in the spring for more fun.

Had a wonderful time with dive master - Lisa from Aqua Action Dive Center. She offered a Diving 101 class at Margaritaville, St Thomas. My wife, who is not a good swimmer, was really comfortable with Lisa by her side. So much so that we signed up for a check out dive. On the day, Lisa came by and picked... More

I just completed my Open Water Diver certification with Erin at Aqua Action through the referral program. The process was nothing but fun, from learning how to assemble my gear to diving with sea turtles in the Buck Island cove! The team at Aqua Action is knowledgeable and accommodating, with Erin happily rehearsing each of the training procedures with me... More
