Some of the most beautiful coral ever!

We booked with Ginette and Michel from Canada and found the dive shop right alongside the main dock at Old Bank (Bastimentos town). Robertus (Holland) was our dive guide (previous... read more

All our brand new gear was set up on the dock for us at the time of our arrival and we were ready to go ----one problem, our boat had engine problems and we had to sit for over... More

We booked with Ginette and Michel from Canada and found the dive shop right alongside the main dock at Old Bank (Bastimentos town). Robertus (Holland) was our dive guide (previous owner) and he took four of us out for a two-tank dive trip. Brand new gear, excellent condition. Both dives were relatively shallow but we were underwater for over an... More

My sister and I just finished our Open Water Certificate with Arron and Iza. It was so great! At first I wasn't sure about taking the course. After some bad snorkling experience I was a bit insecure. But the way Arron handled things was very nice. He takes all the time you need, never goes on until you feel comfortable... More

I dove at Scuba 6 with Arron and It was really amazing, one of my most wonderful dives. Arron was really professional, very attentive to the group members - the kind of diver that really inspires you! he took us to some beautiful sites, we saw lots of colorful corals and some great animals. I had an amazing experience.

Arron is always aware of you and how you feel, so you feel completely comfortable with the different skills and so on. Furthermore the equipment was good and the... More

I dove here last year and was delighted with the experience. The diving and customer attention (when compared to the several Bocas Town dive shops) was exceptional for the area. Unfortunately, this place seems to have switched ownership and the new management seems quite impatient and unenthusiastic about diving. We walked into an empty shop and were eventually greeted by...

My girlfriend and I dove with Aaron in January and it went perfectly. She needed to complete her Open Water certification and Aaron was more than helpful by bringing in a local Dive Instructor, Alex, to assist. She passed the skill and we had two wonderful and long dives. The benefits of a small dive shop focused on small groups... More

The equipment is new the service friendly and efficient. Safety is a priority with these people. I recommend Scuba six strongly and will dive again with them on my next... More

I would defiantly dive with Scuba 6 Again! Friendly professional services. I enjoyed the entire dive. Scuba 6 took me to an incredible site where I was able to enjoy a large variety of Fish and Coral. I highly recommend Scuba 6. Great prices, great gear and friendly staff.
