Brett was a outstanding dive master. Everyone involved from shop to crew were very friendly, knowledgeable and just outright good people! If you’re going to dive in Sint Maarten, this is the operation you want to use.

You cannot go wrong when you choose Dive Adventures to fulfill your scuba diving needs. Captain Soinet is hands down the very best! He keeps you safe and always has an eye on the divers in the water. Dive Master Brett is very professional and you can’t help but feel relaxed when he’s leading you - and he finds all the best of the little things!! He found an octopus on almost every dive - and we did 10 days of double tank dives. Every single day was filled with new surprises and the crew always kept us on the best dive sites for the conditions that day! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I’ve been diving with these guys for three years now and I can’t say enough good about them. This year I went a bit overboard (ha!) with fourteen dives and can say I visited most of the dive sites, some more than once, and each one was a thrill. I feel totally safe with them - gear is always checked, backup equipment is on board, and the predive safety briefings are very thorough. Every dive master and instructor was top notch, and went out of their way to help you get the most of your experience. I don’t know how many times Nathan tried to clear my fogged mask, or made a real point to show me something underwater that he knew I wanted to see - sweet! Graham’s sharp eye showed me a very tiny eel I would have missed, as well as pointing out my first drum fish - and a nurse shark tucked under a ledge on the bottom gently rippling his fins in the current. Eric led my most « fun » dive with a good current pushing us through some beautiful swim-throughs and rock formations in Mike’s Maze, and he showed me the biggest sea turtle of the visit on Carib, which was a real thrill. Special shout out to Boat Captain Soinet, a real backbone of the operation - he helped kit me up and got me in and out of most dives, and really knew how to read the weather and conditions to help us get the best dive in any weather. That’s invaluable when conditions change quickly! He and Graham worked well together when conditions changed mid-dive and we needed a pick up. Other things I saw during my dives: trumpet fish, trunk fish, puffers, my first scrawled file fish, lobster, reef sharks, trigger fish, French angels, Queen angels...and much more. Highly recommend this as a great experience for divers of every level!

Dive master Graham and captain Swammie took us out to the bridge outside of Simpson bay. Graham was patient and made everyone feel comfortable in the water and showed us a bunch of cool stuff underwater including a giant conch, a couple stingrays, some big barracudas, lobsters and a bunch of other cool stuff. Swammie showed off some jet ski tricks before we left the dock and handled the boat like a true professional in and out of the dock. He also made sure we were all relaxed and had a great time. Great dive trip will be back!

Great experience. Everyone from Lina who helped me book and sent google map directions to Divi location, to Nate who provided the best customer service at shop, to Eric our dive master - Aqua Mania personnel made it super smooth. As a solo woman diver I was paired with another solo woman diver. Eric our dive master was knowledgeable, patient and very pleasant. He took time to make sure we were all safe and comfortable in the water- going as far as switching masks with me underwater when mine kept fogging! Made sure we saw all the sea life. Boat captain also great. Everyone was attentive! Only six divers with two dive masters. Highly recommend.
