Jared, Billy, Nen, Steve & Audrey were great & made the trip a lot of fun. I would highly recommend doing the second optional dive on the trip because that was next level diving. We went down to 40 feet and were swimming through & under Coral ledges. Jared was really good working with my daughters and getting them comfortable with their first scuba experience. They also had tons of good information about the island. No matter where your staying in St. Thomas it’s worth the short drive to get to the East End to dive with them

Sounds like you guys had a blast! We are so happy you decided to do a second dive we love getting to show people more of the great diving we have here on St Thomas. Hope to see you and the girls back again soon!

These guys were amazing. From accommodating a last minute request for cupcakes for my partner’s birthday, to cracking jokes the entirety of the trip and making everyone feel comfortable, these guys were amazing. Jess, Ana and Wolfgang were our crew members for the day and they were nothing short of awesome.

Ana took my both my and my girlfriend for two dives on the trip. The first dive was a great lesson in scuba theory and execution, and the second dive was an INCREDIBLE tour of some underwater ship wrecks. She was so nice and knowledgeable, we felt comfortable at every stage of the process.

Jess was so kind and hospitable on the boat, constantly asking if anyone needed anything, and super excited to chat about anything we wanted to talk about. So great!

Wolfgang was one of a kind....you gotta meet him to understand. The whole experience would be worth every penny if we just hung out with Wolfgang on the boat for 4 hours.

Thanks to the entire Aquamarine team for the amazing experience, we would love to be back with you for our certification!

Hello Alex! It was a real treat having you and Rathaela on the boat with us, and we're so happy you enjoyed the Discover Scuba Diving experience. Now that you've had a taste of the underwater adventures that await, we hope you'll return and get your full certification. We promise to have some new jokes ready for you. ;-)

We are so glad we chose DiveAqua for our diving excursion, we had a large group of 14 and they were more than accomodating. Miss Jess was AMAZING with all our kids and gave them snorkeling lessons and taught them about the island and wild life we saw. Quentin and Bryan were our scuba instructors and went out of their way to ensure everyone was comfortable with gear and skills prior to diving. Bryan even was gracious enough to take video of our dive and photos. They were so patient with our teenage first divers and made their experience so great, they want to get certified and go back! Captain Steve spoiled the kids with treats (and the adults with rum at then end :-) and a great ride to our site. We couldn't have had a greater experience and THANK YOU guys so much for hosting! The only regret we have is that we didn't pay attention to the time change and showed up an hour late, and you guys still accommodated! Thanks again for everything!

This was my 4th discover scuba diving outing with Aqua Marine Dive and every time has been special in its own way. On this trip, Jared and Nen took great care of my son who was on his first dive and really made it a memorable experience for him. This Dive shop is professional and organized but always creates a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Now that I’m certified I will be contacting Aqua Marine the next time I am in St Thomas.

What a cool first experience of diving Aquamarine was able to provide for me. A huge thanks to Cora, Quentin, Justin, Jess, and Jerrod! I was terrified to dive for the first time, especially as a solo traveler, so I started out snorkeling and absolutely loved it. They took us to sites with such colorful coral and fish, and the crew told us really interesting histories about the surrounding islands. I was encouraged to try out Discover Scuba Diving and despite my initial fears about bigger fish or breathing completely underwater, Cora did amazing to make sure I was comfortable and ready for the next step. This has gotten me excited to return to Aquamarine, as it was such a great start for more diving to come!

This is not the 1st time doing a discovery dive as we have not had nor taken the time to get certified. From the outset of making our initial call to reserve a spot, to the time that we disembarked...we were very impressed. Captain Floyd, Audry and Abby were absolutely fabulous in both professionalism and hospitality. The instruction that we received was the best that we have experienced. They were very patient with my Sweetie as she was rather nervous and they kept me in check as I was somewhat over-eager. Cost was very reasonable as I was able to do a 2-tank dive. We would suggest that you go early and find the location as it could be difficult to find if you were unfamiliar with the area. Would highly recommend to any and all.

Thank you for the wonderful 5-star review! We're glad you had such a seamless, easy experience from start to finish, and that we have set a high bar for our Discover Scuba Diving experience. If you decide to make the jump and get your certification, please keep us in mind!

This was out first time scuba diving and I was admittedly very nervous. From the moment we arrive Jared was very calm and welcoming which instantly made me feel better. Our scuba guides were Quenton and Austin, they were both extremely knowledgeable and patient. I had the best time ever, I went from being incredibly nervous to not wanting to go home, now I can’t wait to get certified! I can’t thank this dive center enough for helping me find a new love. If you’re on the fence about going, go with this company, you won’t regret it!

My boyfriend was a first time scuba diver while I had only been one time before and Jared and Nen were so patient and helpful in making it such an enjoyable and relaxing experience. We would absolutely recommend this to anyone who has never gone before and would like to test it out before getting certified. I would also highly recommend doing the second dive. The first dive is not as much about seeing wildlife as it is getting your feet wet on how to get comfortable with all the equipment and scuba as a whole. The second dive is where you will see and enjoy so many animals and a very active coral reef.

We are so happy to hear you had fun on both your dives with us! We love getting people underwater to enjoy the beautiful coral reefs and marine life St. Thomas has to offer! Hope we get you out here again soon to do a full certification!

The reefs were amazing. We had Jared as our instructor and he was great! Give that man a bonus😊 we had some dicey weather but they did a fabulous job making sure we squeezed in two great dives. Highly recommend the entire crew. Friendly, patient and took great care of us. Five stars all the way. Book your dives here and you will not be disappointed. We will definitely be back soon.

So glad you had fun with Jared, he is an awesome guide! Glad you were up for the diving despite it being a bit of a windy day, once you get underwater and see the spectacular coral reefs, you forget about everything else!

My fiancé is an experienced diver and I was going out to see if I liked it. We had Amy as our master diver. She was exceptional I was not getting the whole breathing thing and she took an exceptional amount of time with me. If it wasn’t for her I would have given up and gotten out of the water. She made my experience great! Wolfgang was so knowledgeable and entertaining. Audrey was giving words of encouragement throughout the ride and when we were done. Jared made the ride fun. We had a good time but safety was their first concern. Never at any point was I scared or didn’t know what to do. Would recommend to everyone I know!
