It is difficult to find a snorkeling site with so much color and fish that this one had! The crew of Sail Caribbean Divers took us to the caves at Norman Island followed by a beach at Pirate's Bight. The Caves were definitely the highlight, so I would recommend ending the trip by going to that location to end on... More

I have been on dives in Cozumel, Turks and Roatan and have never experienced such professionalism. Here is what you do...get on the boat...put fins and mask on...dive. You will never find a group this knowledgeable and helpful.

I couldn't be more satisfied with the training that I received from Sail Caribbean Divers while completing my PADI Divemaster. I researched many potential locations and dive operators worldwide prior to selecting SCD and I am 100% confident that I made the right choice! SCD is a busy, organized and professionally run dive operator and training facility with an incredibly... More

Came to the store in Cooper Island this morning. Scheduled a Discovery Dive for both of my kids (11 and 12), filled all necessary paperwork and whatever they requested. The person who was in Charge (Kim) told me to come back in about half hour to confirm the exact time of my kids first dive. Half hour later she tells... More

By way of explanation; our staff member was correct in having your children complete the requisite paperwork, we must prequalify our potential students for medical reasons. The mistake... More

As part of our Living the Dream Charter sail vacation, we also offer some excellent diving packages with our partners at Sail Caribbean Divers. They are a premium dive operation when we are looking for dives throughout the BVI. I highly recommend their services.

NCL Cruise ship excursion to snorkel around Norman Island was great. It was a dive boat, so anyone on the sides or on top got wet, so the small sheltered dry area got a little crowded but had hand holds to stand. The dashboard area was dry and large enough for everyone to stow their bags and towels. The boat... More

Our family took an excursion from our cruise to Norman Island with this group. They were prompt, amusing, and efficient. They made the challenges of boating in choppy water fun. They took extra time with our daughter while snorkeling. I'd highly recommend them to anyone in the area.

We booked this excursion through our cruise ship and we were definitely not disappointed! The crew was awesome and very accommodating. We went to 2 different dive sites to include the wreck of the RMS Rhone and even saw a turtle! I highly recommend them if you are going to be in Tortola!
