If you have longed to experience the weightless environment of scuba diving, but knew you would never go through with it. Here is your chance. Frank's patient and thorough instructions and the fact that you will be less than 20 ft deep make it possible for anyone. My teenagers were scared and ended up diving like mer-people. My husband has... More

I came here with my teenage son and three friends, another teenage boy and his parents. Our friends did the snuba tour last year and enthusiastically recommended it to us. We were not disappointed! "Snuba" is supposedly a cross between snorkeling and scuba, but it is really far closer to scuba (I'm a diver myself). It is less intimidating, though,... More

This is an excellent introduction to scuba diving. Frank states during the training that he teaches about 90% of the scuba concepts that you could build upon if you wanted to continue with the sport. I learned a lot during the training session! I was pretty nervous during the entire underwater excursion but I never sought refuge from the raft... More

Snuba is awesome! My husband and I tried it out on our recent trip to St. John and had a great time. Frank is an excellent instructor - very thorough, but also lighthearted. His tips made Snuba easy, which allowed us to get the most out of our time underwater. We saw beautiful fish and coral, and enjoyed swimming along... More

Frank is a gifted teacher. Makes everyone comfortable and confidentent step-by-step. Nice after years of snorkeling to be able to stay down and really look. Ted Krall, Rochester, MN

Definitely the highlight of trip. Very professional sensitive & caring instruction, learning session . No ear problems at all at 16-18 feet down even though normally I do have ear problems free diving 8 feet. You can go along at whatever depth you feel comfortable. Really really fun, and safe.

VI Snuba was an incredible way to spend an afternoon in gorgeous Trunk Bay. Frank, the owner and guide, has nearly 28 years of Snuba experience under his belt and his enthusiasm is contagious. To say he is patient is a true understatement. Of our group of 2, we had 1 experienced snorkel/Snuba-er and 1 nervous newbie. Frank made us... More

My husband and I had only snorkeled a couple of times before but really wanted to give SNUBA a try. We were staying on St. Thomas but went over to Trunk Bay on St. John to Snuba and I highly recommend it. It's the most gorgeous beach I've ever seen. Frank was a great instructor - very good teacher and... More

What a great and fun SNUBA trip! I have never tried SNUBA diving before, this was a great place to give it a try. Frank was patient and helpful as he went through the pre-dive briefing. He made us feel comfortable with the equipment and made sure we knew what to do if we lost our regulator or our mask... More
