Had a great experience with Dive Bequia. Our dive master Kirk was extremely proficient and conscientious. Always attentive and ensured our safety and enjoyment.
Dove the Moon Hole drift dive. So much to see. If anyone has thoughts of a dive holiday, Dive Bequia offers very attractive packages.
Thanks to Cathy, Bob and all the crew.

This was our first time scuba diving and it was fab.

Triston was our instructor, and he was great.
Scuba 'basics' were practiced in crystal-clear water, some 20m from the dive shop. When we could demonstrate our new skills, we were taken to the 'Devil's Table', where we practiced some more, in deeper water.

Once everyone was happy, Triston lead us to the the coral 'farm' and across the reef, keeping a close eye on us, to make sure that all was OK.

It was facinating to see this underwater world.... we felt very priviledged.

Highly recommended.

We needed a fill and also a repair and Dive Bequia did both for us. One of our cylinders had a damaged valve seat and DB did the job quickly and efficiently. Too quickly for us as we didn't manage to pick up the repaired cylinder for a couple of weeks! Wasn't a problem for them, though, and we settled up on our return. Great people.

Cathy Sachs runs this Dive School on the beachfront at Bequia and having been there approaching 30 years knows all there is to know about diving around her island. The diving was first rate -helped by incredibly calm conditions and great viz. Max was our dive guide and was excellent. Cathy off her own back also runs a coral nursery and this is well worth looking at or if you have experience then ask her if you can help clean it - with ten trees in place she could certainly do with help.

Dive Bequia

I have snorkelled for many years but have never got round to doing a scuba diving course. Dive Bequia provided the prefect excuse as I was on the island for more than two weeks. Everyone at Dive Bequia are extremely helpful and didn’t bat an eyelid at an over 70 year old coming in as a novice. I joined up with my instructor who gave one to one instruction for about two hours in shallow water to learn how to use the equipment and basic emergency procedures. This was followed by a shallow dive with a group of 20 somethings which lasted about 40 minutes. The instructor was by my side throughout and I felt comfortable with what we were doing. I went back a couple of days later having done my homework so that I was ready for another 2 – 3 hours shallow water training followed by an aural exam and homework multichoice paper marked. Pleased I passed. Finally, on a following day had a super 50 minute 40 metre dive in beautiful waters full of coral and a multitude of fish. A great experience.

Absolutely loved my dive experience with Dive Bequia! It’s the perfect place to advance your diving capabilities as I did, having just completed my AOW cert through SSI with them. The professionalism of the Dive Bequia team was outstanding. They ensured everything ran smoothly, from gear prep to dive planning, making me feel completely at ease. The dive sites are beautiful, teeming with vibrant marine life and stunning coral formations. A special shoutout to Chelle, the instructor, she was knowledgeable, patient, and made sure we had an incredible time while staying safe. I learned a ton and can’t wait to go for some more specialties with her. And let's not forget the awesome team (Max, Triston, Nikki and Cathy) at Dive Bequia—everyone is always friendly, helpful, and dedicated to making my and everyone else’s dive experience unforgettable. Once again Dive Bequia exceeded my expectations, and I can't wait to dive with them again!

I have dived all over the world and can truthfully state that this operator is thoughtful, knowledgeable and professional. I had a wonderful 2-tank dive to some wonderful areas. Always weather and conditions dependent, I was very happy with the entire 'uncrushed' experience.

We were looking for a place to snorkel and called Dive Bequia to see if they offer snorkeling, which they do. The woman we spoke with was very helpful and suggested we wait a couple of days as she expected the visibility to improve. We did wait and were glad we did. The trip left at 2:30 and takes you to Devil's Table. There were both snorkelers and scuba divers on the trip. They drop off the snorkelers and then take the scuba divers to another spot on the reef.

This is the best snorkeling we found on Bequia. We've tried snorkeling off Lower Bay, Princess Margaret and Friendship bay but none have the variety of life or visibility of Devil's Table. The part of the reef we were on goes from about 2 to 15 feet, so it is easy to see everything at those depths.

We had about 45 minutes in the water and I would have liked more but we had plenty of time to see most of the reef.

Just completed a 10 dive package with Max and Cathy. Super knowledgeable. Excellent equipment, great boat and a full service dive operation. I didn't even have to put any of my own equipment together. Max did everything. I just slid into the BCD, double checked the connections and air, and backward rolled into the water. Super easy. The ocean was a little on the rough side but visibility was good and the biodiversity was great. Lots of Lionfish to spear and eat. Highly recommend!!

I highly recommend Dive Bequia. After a less than positive experience in St Lucia I tried again with these guys. They totally ‘get’ nervous divers and Chelle and Triston both gave me so much time and support to do all the exercises that I was able to achieve my open water qualification relatively easily. Chelle also really opened my eyes to the joy of diving and I can’t wait to do my next dive! Their equipment is new or in very good condition and the whole team are super-friendly.
