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. « less

I worked with Richard during mine and my wife's experience with Discover Scuba. It was such a fun adventure. It was our first time ever and Richard was amazingly supportive and kind. He helped us to ensure that our adventure was enjoyable and boy did he succeed. If you are ever on the East End of St. Thomas, take some... More

My wife and a cousin had a terrific trip to see the turtles and also see a shipwreck. The snorkel equipment was more than adequate. The boat was terrific along with the crew. WE saw a barracuda under the boat and lots of turtles. Very good trip.

Dive sites visited: Calf and cow and Ledges and Stragglers (on the boat) in the bay/harbor for the shore dive. Skeeter and Amy (boat dive) are a... More

I recently completed my certification with AA. I was very pleased with my training and the dive sites I got to see. I would definitely recommend them for excellent training. The staff was mostly friendly. Bill was a little pushy. One thing I DID NOT like, though, was the overemphasis on tips. The sign said "tipping appreciated", but it could've... More

We recently spent another super week diving with Aqua Action. We return to St Thomas to dive with them and are never disappointed. Even though some staff have changed during our visits, they have all been terrific. One could not hope for a better dive experience whether a new diver ( 2 of our children certified there) or one with... More

We had a weekend layover in St. Thomas so we signed up for a morning two-tank dive with Aqua Action and were very happy with the dives (Ledges and Cow) and even more so with our dive staff (Jim, Amy and Skeeter). I am a relative beginner, but my daughter and her boyfriend are both dive instructors and we were... More

I did my first dive in about 20 years with these guys. Rick was my dive master and had incredible patience with me. The team was helpful and informative and I enjoyed the experience so much that I signed up for another one while I am here. To add to their reputation, one of the other divers on my particular...
