We had an amazing experience! We did first Discovery dive at the pier in Frederiksted and everyone in my group enjoyed it so much we signed up for a second dive with Greg at Cane Bay. I was anxious and nervous about trying scuba diving but Greg was so great in making me feel comfortable and safe. He's an excellent instructor and guide and I enjoyed it so much after two discovery dives I'm going to get certified!

We really enjoyed our dives with Greg. He was very thorough and refamiliarized us with equipment and very clear with what we were doing and where we were going. We weren’t rushed to in any way. Very knowledgeable on types of fish and location of the dive. He also has great equipment that appears to be new. I would definitely go again and recommend him to anyone especially if you want a smaller, more personalized experience.

Greg Gapen is the Dive Master behind this outstanding organization. What I really like about Greg is that he is not one of those pretentious Dive Masters who I would typically go diving with in the past who just seem to have that "I'm better then you" behavior. Greg has a great disposition whether your just going for a dive and looking for a guide who knows every dive site on the island, or your looking for a Dive Master for open water certification who understands how to provide a safe and ethical approach, or if your pursing your Master Diver certification which I was recently able to complete with Greg. Greg has helped me become a much more aware and competent diver for all of the right reasons. While this is the highest level for a recreational diver, because of Greg, I am inspired to continue to improve my skills by taking additional specialties lead by Greg. Not only do I feel this way, but I spoke to a good number of Dive Masters with other dive businesses on the island and everyone I spoke with highly regards Greg as a great representative of the island and the dive community. Greg will schedule your dives and meet you at the dive site with any equipment that you need and can accommodate all diving needs as a Master Instructor. My dive recommendations are the wall at Cane Bay and the Fredricksted Pier. He's a great instructor and has become a good friend over the past 8 years.

I got my open water certification with Greg Gapen in St. Croix. It was one of the best experiences of my life. Greg is an awesome teacher/instructor. He is very patient and just a great guy. My fiance also got her open water certification with Greg last year and loved her experience as well.
I highly recommend anyone that is thinking about scuba diving should give Greg a call. You'll become a lifetime customer like my family.

I normally do not leave reviews. But when I have an incredible experience, well, I feel it necessary to give an AMAZING endorsement. I just received my open water certification today. I chose Greg because of his credentials and outstanding demeanor in how he approaches diving. Greg took his time and explained every detail to ensure I was comfortable. Greg was very open to all questions and was outstanding in explaining the “WHY” during the entire process. Greg’s knowledge of all the great scuba spots and where to enter and exit made the dive experience fun and safe. He really took his time in the water to not only teach but to show you all the beauty the ocean has to offer. Greg went out of his way to make it as a complete experience. His thoroughness and ability to clearly explain all there is to know about diving is what made the experience better than I ever could imagined. I couldn’t be happier with my entire scuba certification experience and I am proud to give Greg my highest recommendation. He truly is the best there is in his profession!

Words can’t describe how impressed we are. Thank you Greg for your professionalism, patience and sharing all your knowledge. Our daughter Jasmin certified with her Open Water and now Advanced Open Water certification. If anyone is looking to learn to Scuba Dive, look no further, Greg Gapen at Latitude 17 Scuba is it.
(From Jasmin) Thank you Greg for igniting my passion for diving. Thank you for answering all my questions. I am looking forward to many more dives and certifications in the future.

I had a really good time with my instructor, Greg. He showed me a lot of cool sea life. He was very patient. He answered all of my questions. We saw some sting rays and turtles and lots more. I recommend Greg to certify anyone interested.
Thank you Greg!

Greg and Mel, the owners of Latitude 17 Scuba, gave us an incredible dive experience in St. Croix on the Cane Bay Wall. They provided an exclusive, personalized dive. Not only did they meet me for this shore dive when and where I wanted, but also customized the dive. Greg is a very good dive master with equal parts safety, knowledge of the dive site and personalized service. The custom dive was well priced too. It's the only way I will ever dive while on St. Croix. In fact, going to the Fredricksted Pier with them tomorrow!

Thank you so much for the response! It was meant to be when we met you, and started talking about the private guided tours we do. You said to us "I did not want to go out on a boat to a same dive site I have been to before" and voila we took you out on your first shore dive to Cane Bay (a site you had not dove). Thank you so much for diving with Latitude 17 Scuba!

Greg and Mel were recommended to us by friends who bought a house down here. They were very responsive to initial inquiries and I signed on with them to get my PADI Advanced Open Water Certificate. When we first arrived the winds were up and diving visibility poor and although they were ready to go they were hoping I had the flexibility to slide the dives until the vis was better (which I did). Their number one priority is of course safety but then they really want you to have fun and love the dives (which I did). We did the peak performance and navigation off of Frederiksted Pier. The pier is full of marine life. Day two started at Cane Bay with the deep dive along the wall and search and recovery next to the Elk Horn Coral farm and finished back at the Pier with the night dive. Work first but save time for site-seeing on each dive. The exercises they had me do were all made to be learning points with fun. My confidence was high after the night dive. And I was very grateful to Greg and Mel for running a professional program, tailored to my skills and with a real desire to make it enjoyable. I recommend Latitude 17 without reservation!!

Thank you so much for the response! We enjoyed training you for Advanced and showing you our beautiful underwater world at the same time. We are so glad the weather finally cooperated and allowed you to have enjoyable dives. It is uncommon to have much bad weather here but it happens. Keep up the diving and thanks again for diving with Latitude 17 Scuba!
