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.

Jef was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and explained the thought process behind scuba diving. This was really outstanding because now I can dive with less than half of weight that I used to days before, and my enjoyment underwater has increased dramatically. My wife and I learned the advanced Scuba as well as rescue, in my two young daughters became open water certified. I’m looking forward to many years of amazing Dive experiences, and hope to visit St Marten again and have some awesome memories with the Ocean Explorers

Ocean Explorers are by far the best dive outfit on SXM! I cannot day enough about Jef and his crew or his lovely wife Lu who orchestrates dives. I have used many other dive shops in the island but I have found a family in Ocean Explorers.

Did one 2 tank dive with Ocean Explorers. Felt quite pampered - very unusual when diving! - hardly had to carry any of my own stuff. Enjoyed the "shark experience" dive and the wreck dive was also good. Safe, professional shop.

I visited Ocean Explorers in Feb 2020 and had a great day's diving with them. I was in town as part of a Caribbean cruise and from the initial email to saying goodbye the service from Ocean Explorers was great. Communications ahead of visiting them and the booking process were very clear and timely. The diving was simply brilliant. The team were great and they couldn't do more to help if other divers had issues. They were great at spotting interesting and exciting things to see and making sure everyone had a fun time diving with them. I would highly recommend Ocean Explorers to anyone and look forward to diving with them again if i'm ever near by!

If you're looking for excellent customer service and a fantastic dive experience this is the shop for you! Jeff and Sammie were excellent guides. They made our dive perfect! The sites they chose, Carib cargo and Lobster hotel, had an abundance of marine life and lots of sharks came to say hello. Would definitely go again!
