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.

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

Staff was great! Perfect for small groups who want a personalized scuba trip. Staff was very attentive and let us make decisions on where to dive (within reason due to choppy water). Worked with our comfort level. Ensured all gear was set up properly. Had great stories to share.

If you are going to be in St. Thomas, VI, and are a scuba diver, the best place to enjoy this great sport is Aqua Action Dive Center. Not only are they a top notch, and safe, dive operation, but I was drawn to them primarily because they are certified to assist divers with disabilities. I didn't need much help,... More

We did a 3 stop snorkel trip and it was amazing! Lisa did a fabulous job guiding us! She was very knowledgeable and pointed out many things that we would never have seen on our own. She also worked very well with the kids. Delicious homemade snacks were on board! Sam was a great captain and was able to find... More

We went on two snorkeling trips. The crew was amazing. Our guide was incredibly knowledgeable about all the fish, turtles, other animals and coral. They were also great with the kids, playing with them and answering all their questions. Yummy homemade snacks and fresh fruit! Turtle Cove is a must see! You can also snorkel right at the shop in...

Had an amazing time...half day turtle snorkel and then a day checking out St John and it's beaches. Crew, boats, snacks, and adventure was better than expected. Clean, safety minded, and family friendly. Would recommend to friends.

Professionalism through the roof! All the crew is super knowledgeable and very kind. The dive spots were just amazing. Kudos to Jim for being an excellent dive master and Bill for being an amazing captain. Sam is running the shop 'just in the right way', only with amazing quality items, both for purchase and rental!

During our visit to St Thomas, we took a snorkel trip with Aqua Action divers to Buck Island to see sea turtles. Boy did they deliver, we saw no fewer than 12 gentle tolerant beauties. We saw hundreds of colorful fish, and a ray! The Captian and crew Lisa and Diane were fun helpful and made our trip safe and... More

We went out diving with Bill and Jim yesterday! It was on super short notice and we were in the water an hour later! They were accommodating, pleasant, and funny! The dives were amazing- The ledges and Cow and Calf! Both highly recommended! The experience was amazing, you can't go wrong here!!
