I visited Sint Maarten on a last minute trip and decided to get certified for scuba diving. Demian is a great instructor and incredibly knowledgeable. I signed up to be open water certified at the resort and the staff was incredibly accommodating. With Demian's guidance, I was able to complete certification over four days while also experiencing some wonderful dives... More

Just went diving with them for three days and it was amazing. They made an effort to hit different dive sites each day and totally took care of me. They loaded my equipment, changed it all in between dives and were super friendly. Very professional and felt very taken care of. Thanks for a great trip!!

I've been diving on st. Maarten with Dive Adventures for over 25 years. The original enthusiasm is still there and they maintain very high professional standards. Vinnie runs a tight operation and captain Soinet knows the reefs like no other. I've seen the devastation after Hurricane Luis in 1995. Interestingly the reefs have improved greatly, especially over the last 5... More
