Aqua Action Dive Center is a PADI Five-Star Instructor Development Dive and Snorkel Resort located at Secret Harbour Beach Resort on beautiful St. Thomas in the US Virgin Islands. Our focus is on custom-tailored dive and snorkel trips, individual training (beginner through instructor!), and small, fun groups of people! Enjoy a morning or afternoon dive or snorkel trip on our 30' Dive Boat, Ocean Express. Diving not your thing? Why not plan a half- or full-day trip on our excursion boat - a 35' Intrepid, Ocean Explorer! With plenty of seating (both sun and shade), you can visit the beautiful St. John beaches for some great snorkeling or sightseeing. And with plenty of speed, you can plan a trip to the Baths, Jost Van Dyke, or the Willy-T in the British Virgin Islands. Breakfast, snacks, and open bar on all of our Ocean Explorer trips! Rather not be on a boat? No worries - you can just hang back on our beach and enjoy the clear, calm waters of Secret Harbour - we offer beach chairs, kayaks, paddle boats, stand-up paddleboards, snorkeling (the best on St. Thomas!), a beautiful white sand beach and a beach side bar and bistro.

This was my first time to schedule a dive which Was easily done via the website. Diane followed up with the details which put me at ease. Our excursion was delayed due to a passing storm, a few of us enjoyed snorkeling in the bay while passing the time. Both dive masters were very knowledgeable and well experienced. They took... More

The Collinsworth family did an all day snorkling and beach trip. Visited several island locations and had lunch at honeymoon beach. Sam (the Captain) and Jesse (the DMIT) were great and take excellant care of us. It was a fun day. I would highly recommend them to all.

We took the half day snorkel trip to turtle cove. This usually includes a 2nd stop at a shipwreck if conditions are favorable. The day we went, 2nd stop(visited first) was a truly amazing coral reef. We had 12guests and 3 crew, so a lot of individual attention. Hard candy was provided, but there were only two peppermints. When guide... More

We were in St. Thomas for a week and tried this dive shop on the recommendation of someone from home. We did three two tank dives and were very satisfied. Extremely safety conscious and helpful dive masters. They helped us fine tune our buoyancy skills and we saw great reefs with lots of sea life. We would definitely use them... More

We returned once again to Aqua Action for some great diving. The Dive Masters and on shore crew are very friendly and professional. You can not go wrong in snorkeling, diving or just enjoying the beach by Aqua Action. There is boat diving, shore diving or snorkeling. You will see turtles when they take you out. Great shop and great... More

My wife took a refresher dive and my daughter did a Discover Scuba Diving. Amy and Rick did an outstanding job of teaching and inspiring them, and we couldn't be happier. They are also at a beautiful location with a quiet beach and warm water. I definitely recommend this shop even if you are staying on the opposite side of... More
