Owner description: 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.

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.

We did not do any diving just stand up paddle boarding and snorkeling around Secret Harbour. You will be glad you stopped and from what I've seen from all the people getting off the dive boat every day (we were here 6 days) the dive boat experience is as good as the snorkeling and paddle boats. This shop has everything... More

Captain Sam and Diane who are the owners of Aqua Action Dive Center took us on a wonderful trip to the BVI, Jost Van Dyke & White Bay which included snorkeling. On a scale of 1-10, 10 being the best, I would rate this experience a "10." Captain Sam and Diane are extremely knowledgeable, helpful, friendly, and most importantly fun... More

We rented Captain Sam and his beautiful boat for a day. Along with Sam was our guide Lisa. They were both very accommodating but not patronizing. They escorted four of us to three different areas off St. John, St. Thomas and the BVI. We also made a stop for lunch and another for a fun round of drinks. Sam kept... More

Hands down the best activity we did. Was very impressed by Adrian (AKA Squid - so named for her uncanny ability to find cool sea creatures and later named her photography company Silver Squid - a bonus since she took an amazing photo for one in our group with their camera for them since they couldn't dive under and hold...

We had two days of 2-tank trips booked for our Thanksgiving Vacation in St. Thomas with Aqua Action Dive Center. The first day our group of 4 had the boat to ourselves with Instructor Bill. We went out to do a shallow wreck dive at about 35ft. since one of the divers in our group was recently certified. Before we... More
