The guys from Diving Adventures are awesome. I was lucky to do 4 dives with them on the last days of my trip, even though I hadn't planned. I was a little bit worried, since I hadn't been diving for some time, but they helped me to decide with a proper sequence of dives and to stay comfortable all the... More

I did a "Discover Scuba" dive with my 2 kids, and the whole experience exceeded our expectations. We received very clear training before we went into the water from our dive master Mark. After reviewing the equipment we then practiced breathing, clearing our regulator and clearing our mask in shallow water on the beach. Finally, once Mark felt confident in... More

I always dive in Saba, about 28 miles from St. Maarten, but avoided St. Maarten because I'd heard the diving was so-so. This time I decided to find out for myself, and the crew at Dive Adventures bent over backward to make sure they dispelled the negative rumors about diving in St. Maarten. On the day I dove the sea... More

This is our 4th time diving with Dive Adventures out of Simpson Bay, and this trip has been the best one yet! The staff is so friendly and helpful, all while keeping divers safe and having fun. We saw lots of fish, stingrays, a couple of turtles, even an eagle ray on the second dive! Our dive master was keen... More

Thank you so much for this wonderful review! It was a pleasure diving with you and it's awesome to hear you wouldn't want to dive with anyone else, there is no greater compliment! St Maarten offers great diving and hopefully we can enjoy your company again on your next visit! Best regards, Team Dive Adventures More

Thankful to Damien and crew for the last minute accommodation while in Sint Maarten. Even though conditions had been stormy in the previous days and visibility marginal, Dive Adventures made every effort to provide a safe, easy-going and fun dive experience for us. This included training our neophyte open water student in the first 10 minutes so that she could... More

Our 2nd visit to Dive Adventures (Dive Mania Sports). Great time with DM Demian and Capt Soinet! We returned to Simpson Bay to dive because of these two. Demian made sure we dove sites we wanted.

We originally were headed to the Bahamas but Hurricane Matthew did damage to the resorts so last minute we switched to Sint Maarten. First time there, and not especially known for its scuba diving.
