At Ocean Explorers we believe that who you dive with is as important as the diving itself… Small groups, personalized attention and a relaxed atmosphere are what we offer on a daily basis. From outstanding reefs to fantastic wrecks, our waters are warm and inviting and the marine life abundant and friendly. Our Caribbean dive shop is located under the waving palms by this tranquil Kim Sha beach on the beautiful Caribbean island St. Maarten.

My wife and I did our PADI Open Water Certification with Ocean Explorers. The whole crew there is awesome. They are all very friendly, attentive and patient, especially with beginners. Local Tip: Ocean Explorers knows the best dive sites in SXM.
