Great experience with Helmie and Henry to pass our Padi Open Water Diver with our family. They are very nice, very educational, very considerate. They make you do all the exercises of the Padi training, they don't throw you in the water at 15 meters deep without having taught you the Padi exercises as other diving centers can do. On the boat, the safety briefing before leaving the first time is particularly reassuring. The pre-dive briefing is very explicit about the Padi exercises that will be done, but also about the dive spots, the history of the place and why there are wrecks in these places. Trevor on the boat was a great help to get in the water with the tanks and to go back up after the dives. It was really a pleasure to learn and dive with them. We hope we can come back to do more dives with Helmie & Henry soon.

My mom and I completed our open water dive certification with Dive Safaris during our stay in SXM. Henry and Helmie were extremely friendly and welcoming. You immediately feel comfortable and they treat you like family. They are both extraordinarily knowledgeable about diving, marine life, and the underwater environment. I am very very glad we chose them and their business, Dive Safaris, to obtain our certifications. I will absolutely be diving with them every chance I get and any time we come back to the island. Amazing experiences and teachers.

Helmie and Henry are awesome. Our 12 yr old son just got his open water certification with Dive Safaris, he was very nervous but Henry was very calm and attentive, and gave clear, capable direction during the boat dives and while underwater. My wife and I have done quote a bit of diving and we could easily see that Henry and Helmie's experience really is their strength. Highly recommended for any skill level!
