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.

We had heard of Secret Harbor several time throughout our trips but only just visited. I'm sure glad we did too! We are your basic tourists and didn't have any gear. We love snorkeling so we went right to the dive shop. Ms. Chrissy was right there to help us with the equipment we needed! She found perfect fits for... More

They are nice people and they run a very safe operation. My issue was the dive sites. When I spoke to them via phone I was told that we would not be diving with snorkelers. When we arrived at the dive site we were told that the dive would be between 15 and 20 ft deep to accommodate the one... More

We had a great time today with Greg and Ryan of Aqua Action! Very informative, got to see sea turtles and a ship wreck. In addition, they were great with our 6 year old who was snorkeling for the first time. Highly recommend this place and can't wait to come back next time we're here!

This is my third time diving with Aqua Action. It's the only place to go for diving or snorkeling on STT. Also, the BVI excursion will be the best day of your vacation. I'm not going to go into great detail. I've been diving for 20 years and this dive company is the absolute best.

What a fabulous family experience! Sam our captain used his 35 foot center console boat,complete with a/c below with indoor facilities, to explore so many fabulous snorkel spots. First mate Jessie took us snorkeling in the caves and dove down to bring up to the surface anything she spotted of interest to us. She was so attentive to all of... More

Diving with Gregg and Stacy was top notch. They were exceptionally organized and safety oriented while making the entire dive fun and enjoyable. Their dive experience was very obvious from the start but we were never talked down to at any point. They were eager to hear of our dive experiences, answer our questions and share tips about the local... More

We stayed on the East End with my family in April 2017. We decided very last minute to try a scuba experience, and Aqua Action was able to acommodate five of us on just a couple of days' notice. All of us had snorkled before but none of us (including my daughter, her husband, and my two teenage sons) had... More

Wow! This was definitely an amazing way to spend a day out snorkeling with family! Sam the captain and Jessie the first mate were absolutely fantastic and extremely accommodating to our family. My sister and I (20 and 24 year old girls) and our parents (here for dad's 60th birthday). Swimming through the caves was so cool! We saw so... More

I spent three days diving the island with Riaan, earning my PADI Open Water certification. He was wonderful, helpful and very attentive, but was also thorough and safety conscious. For my open water dives, we dove at Buck Island and Shipwreck Cove; Riaan showed me many fantastic aquatic creatures and made me feel right at home and very comfortable in... More
