“One of our favourites”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013

One of our favourites !

As underwaterphotographers we like to make nice pictures,
and beautiful underwaterphoto's can only be made when the dives are really nice and well organised.

First of all, we were very astonished by the diversity and the marine life of the Island itself.
But what really touched us personally, was the dive shop and the owners!

This is one of the most professional dive centers we have ever been diving with!
Day after day, with a big smile and really motivated, the team and the staff
showed us the best of the best of the underwaterworld of the Island Statia.
Congratulations for that to the whole team! Thank you Dirk, Louise, Vincent and Bianet!

But especially we want to thank the owners Mike and Marieke for the perfect guiding and modelling,
and for making our vacation to one of our best vacations ever!

Kind regards and we hope to be back soon,
ELS VAN DEN BORRE & BRUNO VAN SAEN

“What a great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

My wife and I dove with Scubaqua in June 2013. These people are simply GREAT. Every dive was fun and they were very helpful. Separate rinse tanks for the cameras and they catered to photographers. We loved the island of Statia and will certainly be going back again. It is a very laid back and relaxing place to vacation. And... We will certainly be diving with Scubaqua again!

“Pleasant and Professional Dive Center”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Good organized Dive Center with an good ear for your personal needs as a diver/underwaterphotographer. A nice variety of different dive spots to fulfill your underwater needs, from wide angle (some suburb wrecks) to extreme macro.
The dive center itself is recently completely renovated to meet "Western standards" with a Caribbean touch. Nice, cosy and professional, both crew and location.

“Great operation and dive experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

My husband and I have been diving for 20+ years and Scubaqua ranks in the top 1% of all the operations we have encountered. The staff is friendly, highly experienced, attentive to specific needs of customers, and very safety oriented. The dive briefings are quite detailed so you know exactly what to expect once you are in the water. We only got in one day of diving as it was a short stay. Not typically a fan of wrecks but would recommend the Chien Tong...heavily encrusted and lots of life. Visibility was excellent and range of color simply amazing! We will be back for more.

“Top ranking bucketlist diving conbined with super service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 22, 2013

We spent 3 days diving on Statia. We loved it. The staff has loads of time for you and is very patient with you if you have any issues.
The service level we got at Scubaqua was in a much higher league then we were used to. The combination of this high service level and the very friendly and relaxed attitude of all the people on Statia made this one of the best locations i have ever been to.
The diving is different from all the diving we have done in Asia. I could not put my finger on it. But is was a great experience. Whatever they promised on a dive...they delivered.
I would recommend a longer stay then we did. If you are into hiking you can combine the two perfectly on this island.
