Diving!

We had 4 great dives with Matt. Beautiful coral and diverse large and small fish. Great rental equipment and boat. Two pier dives were awesome!

Another BUCKET dream accomplished and the training, diving, and all around experience was way better than I had imagined. We did numerous dives, but diving for almost 2 hours on the west end and seeing all five wrecks, countless turtles and stingrays was unbelievable. I was in awe. Mark (my instructor) is extremely knowledgeable, patient, and loves diving as much... More

Had the great pleasure of getting in 5 dives with St. Croix Ultimate Bluewater Adventures. This is by far one of the best dive operations I have dove with and that includes Bonaire, Roatan and the Keys. All my interaction with them was very professional and thorough. I was impressed with everyone we spoke and worked with...Ed, Brittany, Scott and... More

I purchased this scuba diving adventure for my fiances birthday. We had our first experience in the pool setting and then went out on the boat for 2 tank dives. The first dive was rough! My fiance was having trouble with his ears and I was having a lot of trouble staying down (I would hit the ocean floor and... More

Melissa, even though your Discover SCUBA Diving started out a bit "rough" we're delighted that it turned out so great for both you your fiance (congratulations on that by the way). The best part of your great review was having you say "we will definitely go diving again". Even if it isn't on St. Croix (which we hope it will... More

We did 4 tanks with them. Conditions were 25 knot wind ene with 4 foot chop, Visibility 50 ft. so we had to stay close to the harbor and did not make it around the point to the wall. We used their Scuba Pro BC and regulators but brought our 4 mm skins, computers, masks and fins. The boat was... More

Aargh Frank you're going make it hard for us to live up to the expectations of anyone reading your wonderful review. Whales, dolphins (with calf), sharks, turtles, Southern Sting rays, and a manta ray? I've been diving here for 30 years and I've NEVER seen all of those on ONE DIVE! I'm very jealous of you as I was of... More

This shop promised a beautiful, easy dive at Buck Island. It was far from it. Too many divers with too little dive masters. Too much surface time before going down trying to sort everything out. No good dive plan, and a bad dive profile. Group scattered and never saw the remaining dive master again. Surfaced very far from the boat... More

Well to say that I am very disappointed to read your review is an understatement. I'm not disappointed that you wrote it, just that our diving didn't live up to our normal standards and certainly not to your expectations. To be fair Mother Nature played a huge part in that day's diving. With our normal dive schedule, using two different... More

I had not been diving in over 10 years and definitely needed a refresher course. James was the instructor for our group and he was incredible! There were definitely some nerves in our group and James made sure to make each one of us comfortable with the whole process. It was easy to see his love for the sport, and... More

The folks at SCUBA work hard to make every dive a great experience. Lots of personal attention from their very skilled staff. Then to make the experience even better, today we had two humpback whales swim by followed by a mama dolphin and her baby. Oh, and Caribbean reef sharks, rays, and turtles. Kudos to James (dive master and my... More
