We booked Advanced Open Water certification classes with five dives - this turned out to be an amazing place with exceptionally qualified people inside the business and out in the water. Really personal attention to our abilities and needs during the entire training process. - The dive center is across the street from Cane Bay, which allows walk-in dives right from the shop into the water with your gear. There are many features of the bay and coral reef immediately available for exploration, including "The Wall". Cane Bay is a great place, we also dove on our own at this location several times - we saw eagle rays, reef sharks and large turtles in the deep water. They booked us on two boat dives with a service they are associated with, which all of us really appreciated. We would highly recommend doing the boat dives. - I cannot express enough how happy we were to deal with the people at Sweet Bottom Dive, an exceptional service that I would recommend to anyone.

Wow...so many nice things to say...we truly appreciate the reviews we receive on our business. Mark and I take alot of pride in the service we provide, from the dive instruction to the gear rental to the dehumidifiers in guest storage. We are happy your experience with obtaining your advanced open water certification was so enjoyable and educational. Our diving here on St Croix is definitely top notch and you certainly saw many sides of the diving topography. Thank you for choosing Sweet Bottom Dive Center and we hope you see you the next time you are on island.

Sweet Bottom is my favorite dive shop on St. Croix. They have a real focus on safety & know their local customers. Laura & Mark are kind & detail-oriented. They will arrange whatever dive adventures you desire. Also, the shop is dog-friendly. Please book your dives with them!

Tracy was AWESOME! She ensured we had a great shore and pier dive experience! We had the best night dive ever. We saw things we had never seen before. She was professional, friendly and very accommodating. A definite 5-star rating!

I cannot say enough about the wonderful experience I had learning to scuba dive with Sweet Bottom Dive Center!! I wanted to get certified but was nervous about the skills I would need to master to accomplish that goal. I could not have asked for a better instructor to help calm my nerves and show me the patience I needed in order to be successful at this. Russ, my dive master, was so thorough. He explained everything clearly, answered all my questions thoroughly, made sure I was completely comfortable with everything. His patience and sense of humor, made the entire experience so rewarding and fun and exciting!! We saw stingrays, squid, turtles, A sea cucumber, so many colorful fish and coral, and even a shark! I started the process feeling nervous and sure that I’d have a panic attack in the water, lol, but ended the three day experience feeling confident and eager to go out again and keep learning more and seeing more underwater!!! Russ has an adventurous spirit, the kind and patient heart of a teacher, genuine hospitality and love of people and a love of the ocean unlike anything I’ve seen before! The entire team, from Mark, the owner, to the front office staff... everyone was helpful and provided the best service I’ve ever seen of a tour operator. They make sure you have a good time and everyone is always concerned with your safety. Can’t wait to go back!!!

Congratulations on your Open Water Certification Stephanie! Diving certainly opens up a whole new world to explore and we are happy you got to experience a small part of it. Russ is an awesome instructor and we are glad he's part of our team here at Sweet Bottom. We hand pick our staff and make sure our value in safety is maintained and followed. Coming from a healthcare background, Mark and I strive for a safe environment...from our equipment to our staff. Thank you for choosing Sweet Bottom and writing this lovely review.
