Im going to start by saying that Frank was the BEST! We couldn't have asked for a better instructor/guide. I always felt safe and GUIDED!! With that being said, I didn't particularly enjoy the experience. My husband and brother LOVED it! But it just wasn't my thing I guess. I got a little nauseous and actually threw up in my... More

Frank, our instructor is a fabulously soft spoken and patient man who took the time to teach the fundamentals and put my son's mind at ease. My son is 11 and had never even seen the ocean. On his first day of our vacation he went Snuba diving; christening by fire you could call it but the impact was profound.... More

David and Jackson, I really enjoyed the 2 different SNUBA dives we did together at Trunk Bay. It was very rewarding to see Jackson's eyes light up and watch him become completely involved in the moment. Thank you for allowing me to share this experience with you! Sincerely, Frank More

My husband and I had never even snorkeled before this vacation. Frank was so patient and kind, and an excellent teacher. We both felt very confident after his 101. This makes me want to learn how to scuba dive. Would definitely recommend if you are beginners. Snuba is going to be a highlight of our trip!

My husband and I are enthusiastic SCUBA divers, but our 9-year-old twins are too young for SCUBA. So we decided to give SNUBA a try. This was a fantastic experience for both of them! Our instructor/guide, Frank, was amazingly patient. He took time to make sure both kids understood the various tecniques they woud need to use while underwater, but... More

Had a great time at Trunk Bay with VI SUNBA! We learned a lot from Frank about all the do's and don'ts before exploring the ocean depths. He is very patient with people with little to no experience. I have recommended it to all my friends to give it a try. I live on island and my family who came... More

If you have any interest at all in SCUBA, then you have to try this out. Frank was an excellent instructor and guide- he thoroughly prepared everyone for being under water for 30 minutes and walked through all of the issues that could possibly be encountered- water under the mask, water in the regulator, etc. He also taught us well...

My husband and I joined four other adults for SNUBA instruction by Frank at Trunk Bay. Frank is a great teacher - very calm and patient.

Its easy to understand while Frank has been doing this for 27 years. It is sooo cool. Being underwater for that long and getting up close to the sea life in Trunk Bay was amazing. Frank was a great teacher, my wife needed a little extra help to feel comfortable and his calm and thorough approach put her right at... More

My boys (9 &12 year olds) and I decided to try Snuba for the first time on our trip to St John's. At first I was worried that the boys would have a difficult time with it. But Frank thoroughly explained everything we needed to know before,during and after being in the water. He makes sure everyone is comfortable and... More

It was a great experience going off the beach and having Frank take us around. He was very helpful and instructive before we got out there. Felt very safe and wasn't worried about a thing! Frank is the best. This is my 2nd time Snuba'ing and it was the best. Wish I got to do it here for the first... More
