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.

I have been diving with Aqua Action for guite a while. So , it would be redundant of me to say again, what a professionall and friendly operation this is. The location of the dive shop is the best on St. Tom. Secret Harbor. My recent dive trip included leaving 7 family members behind on the beach. I don't think... More

Aqua Action is based in Secret Harbour, which is a great place to stay if scuba is a focus for your trip. There were 12 close sites, no more than a 20 minute boat ride. We did a 80 foot dive, a night dive to see giant sleeping turtles, and a shallow dive at Turtle Cove seeing over a dozen... More

I had a great experience with the team at AA. I dove with Bill all 4 days including night dive and Erin on 2 days. Rick was skipper. They are very careful and clear about boat safety and dive planning. They even took care of 2 other divers who were very seasick and made every effort to help them out.... More

This was a great experience! I had not been diving in 15 years, so I was a little unsure of things. Erin was our dive master and she was absolutely wonderful! She was very attentive, and did everything to make me feel comfortable in the water. She was fun, and a cool person to be around. Sam and Dianne are... More

My wife and I live in the Virgin Islands, so when we decided to bone up after a long absence from diving, we chose Aqua Action, operating out of Secret Harbor on St. Thomas, to help us refresh our scuba skills. Having done a snorkeling charter around St. John with them several years ago, we were confident that they would... More

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!!
