My wife and I booked a two tank dive with Dive BVI and were very excited to go. I’ve been diving for a decade and my wife had only completed her checkout dives, so I was excited for her to experience a more interesting dive trip. We went out with Rupert and Becca and had the best dive boat experience I’ve ever had. They were both incredibly knowledgeable and safe, made the whole dive experience absolutely amazing for my wife and me, and helped take away and of the stress and anxiety my wife was feeling regarding her dives. They were patient and professional and I can’t say enough good things about the whole experience.

This is a top notch Scuba school. We used the Scrub Island location. Our instructor, Becca, was amazing! She made us feel very reassured that we were in very capable hands and I’m certain she could have handled any issues that could arise. Dive BVI is a great school with great instructors to give you a very solid foundation for your scuba experience.

I can't say enough about Captain Steve from Dive BVI! We chartered a private boat for the day and let me tell you Steve was so knowledgeable and made us feel safe. We had a lot of fun too! Steve was very patient with finding just the right fit snorkel gear for everyone. He taught us about the different sea life that we saw and knew exactly where to find an octopus and stingray. The Indians looked scary to just jump out into the ocean and start snorkeling, but of course Steve was right there with us and made our snorkeling experience absolutely amazing! Don't get me wrong it was all about safety when it came down to having a successful boating and swimming day... but we had some music blasting and some drinks flowing too! The islands Captain Steve picked for us to hop to, after we told him a general idea of what we wanted to do were perfectly picked! Norman Island is so adorable! Jost for Soggy Dollar, etc. What a fabulous day with an experienced guy!

Great company!! Recently were on Scrub Island and we booked one of the day trips with Dive BVI and Captain Steve and it was great. The representative we worked with, Clayvone, we wonderful, couldn't have been nicer. Their shop was well equipped and prices were very reasonable with great quality. If all of their locations are set to outstanding service we received this is company you want to do business with

My family and I had an great SCUBA experience with Dive BVI.

We had arranged to rendezvous with Dive BVI in the Dogs on Wednesday, but we ended up docking our Moorings 5000 in Yacht Harbour in Spanish Town Tuesday afternoon after doing the Baths (partly because we had some seasick crew and partly because we had dinner reservations Tuesday night at Coca Maya). We realized that one of Dive BVI's two shops was only a 2 minute walk from our dock. That allowed us to meet directly with Becca who I had previously communicated with by phone and email. She and the woman working in the shop helped us figure out some great activities for the non-diving members of our crew to do while we dove the next day.

By the way the non divers had a great time. They traveled by taxi to Savannah Bay Beach and later had lunch at Bath and Turtle. It was a highlight of our trip. The taxi driver was Patsy - the sister of the woman working in the shop.

Most of the members of my group were not very experienced - three of us had not dove in ~7 years, another had just completed his certification in a quarry in South Carolina and the other two were 12 y/o and 15 y/o girls who had completed their pool training and needed check out dives. We chose to do a 1/2 day, two tank charter instead of a group trip so the three rusty divers and the newbie could get additional supervision, and the girls could do their check out dives. Dive BVI was able to dedicate three members of their team to our boat, Becca, Rupert and their newest teammate, Tom. Becca took care of the girls while Rupert and Tom gave the rest of us a verbal refresher and then led us on two dives.

Becca did a fantastic job with the check out dives with the 12 y/o and the 15 y/o. The 12 y/o had a brief moment of anxiety on the surface before the first dive, but Becca talked her through it and the girls had a great day.

Meanwhile Rupert and Tom led the rest of us through two excellent dives at The Chimneys (Great Dog) and at Mountain Point (Virgin Gorda).

Overall the experience was truly outstanding. The BVI team guided us safely through two awesome dives.

Loved my experience here and would recommend getting your certification with Becca, who is a brilliant instructor and guides you through all the skills with patience and clarity. I’ve learnt so much and am excited about diving now, which I never was before. Thank you, Dive BVI !

Since learning to scuba dive and becoming certified with their staff in 2012, our family has never loved a dive company more. The instructors are always so kind, knowledgeable, and most importantly passionate about safety. Even with our large family of seven divers, we always feel confident and secure underwater with this crew. Over the years and for many years to come, we have enjoyed meeting new staff members and catching up with old friends. This trip, our friend Zoltan was joined by Becca and we loved her! Thank you both for teaching us (yes, always learning!) and keeping us safe! Excited to have reached our 100th dive right where we took our first dive! Looking forward to next year!

Awesome trips
I did 2 scuba diving trips with Becca & Rupert. Both excellent dive guides. All 4 dives were excellent but Rhôme shipwreck was outstanding.

Our group of 4 went on island hopping to Norman island snorkeling then to Willy T for lunch and jumping off the upper deck. Then relaxing on to Jost Van Dyke for the original painkiller. Steve was our guide and made the trip extremely enjoyable.

Took my two teenage girls to get their check out dives with Becca during a family trip to the islands. Could not have been more impressed!!! Before we even got there, she had called our local dive instructor to get some more information on the two. Her calming nature mixed with experience convinced a near panic youngster to relax and continue on. What a great first dive experience for the two. Amazing!!

The whole organization’s preparation and attitude is what stuck out most. Highly recommend anyone visiting the BVI to dive with this group.

Went with my partner. She is a diver and I’m a snorkel (I try to be). Mike and Rupert were the best ever. I felt very safe on the boat. Mike even snorkeled with me so I felt safe. He took his time and fixed my mask and showed me how to safely snorkel. He also grabbed a jelly fish for me to touch. He explained which jelly fish were bad to touch and which were ok. He also explained the fish and other marine life. The dive was also great - very safety oriented and great sites.
