What a great experience for our family. My twin 18 year olds have been wanting to learn to dive and what a great way of "testing" the waters before the plunge. Frank was so soft spoken and patient with everyone in the group. He is an excellent teacher with his style and demeanor. We went off Trunk Bay which is... More

My boyfriend and I did the snuba excursion today and really enjoyed it. We took the 10am ferry from St. Thomas and met Frank a little before 11am by the trunk bay gift shop. It was immediately apparent he knew exactly what he was doing. Frank has had decades of experience with snuba and estimated taking over 45,000 people out!... More

We were a little hesitant about choosing to do this over snorkeling but were so very glad we did. Frank is the most patient person, he does not let anyone go out unless they are fully confident after the instruction part has completed. During your 'dive' he acts as a tour guide/picture taker/overseer, all along making sure you are okay... More

Easily the best vacation decision I have ever made! Frank was awesome! He is calm, safety-centric, and a great instructor. This trip is great for everyone. Do this, you won't regret it!!!!

I wanted to expose my kids to the joys of scuba diving while on vacation to St. John, but after all the other tours and excursions I was feeling pretty pinched on funds. An introductory scuba dive was going to be $165 per person, and I have 3 kids! Not to mention they were a little nervous about the idea... More

Frank was easy going, very thorough and relaxed while giving instructions. I had been wanting to do this since last year and it finally happened. Unfortunately the water wasn't as clear as previous days and not as many fish on my snuba. But that is beyond Franks control. Will I do it again, YES!

This was our first time trying SNUBA. Frank was a thorough, patient instructor who made us feel comfortable and confident underwater. SNUBA offers so much more than you can see with a snorkel, it is so close to true SCUBA and is a great opportunity to experience the underwater world. If you are going to St. John, call VI Snuba...

Attention to detail to make our underwater adventure successful was top notch. We loved it, our group of four enjoyed every moment in the water. Thank you Frank! The education on how to handle being in the water was excellent and assisted in every moment of the tour enjoyable.

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
