Although the staff was friendly, their facilities and boat were less than suitable. We were driven by inflatable which had to filled up regularly to the boat and then our gear was basically laid down on the floor. The staff was good an only dealing with the tools at hand and overall the dives were good.

I booked a Discovery Dive with Patagon on a recent stay at the Ritz; overall it was a great experience and I'd recommend Patagon for anyone interested in diving while in St. Thomas. The staff is great; they're very personable and do a good job of covering safety points and making sure that you're comfortable before starting the dive. Patagon has equipment available to rent and they are a PADI certified shop. They also have a lot of dive options that accommodate varying skill levels from introductory beach dives to two tank boat dives. I was the only person scheduled the day of my dive and I thought it was very accommodating of them to not cancel and still hold a 1 on 1 dive. Dave did a great job of leading me around the sights of Great Bay!

I am, at best, a minimally capable swimmer and less of a snorkeler. I took a lesson there and while I was not a great deal better, I was able to do a decent snorkeling job. The instructor was beyond patient and seemed to understand my fears and anxieties. I'm a much better at snorkeling now. Great job.

My family and I went snorkeling and scuba diving off of the Ritz Carlton property. The weather was great. Arno the captain was wonderful, he made us feel very comfortable and was very knowledgeable and pointed out sites of interest during our trip. My husband went scuba diving with Dave. Dave was also very knowledgeable and knew all the good spots to see so many beautiful fish. Thanks for a wonderful time and the great rum!
