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.

Snorkeling trip

Great snorkeling trip! Saw turtles and lots of fish. Super friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Went to 2 different locations and kept us away from the huge crowds.

Aqua Action was great to work with. We were traveling with a group and booked an entire boat for to snorkel /scuba with the turtles. It ended up being the highlight of our entire trip. Nice boat, great crew, easy to work with. Would definitely book with them again.

Things to know: 1. PERFECT for those who are in a group and want a snorkeling/diving excursion from a cruise. Taxi ride to Secret Harbor is 10 dollars, and taxis are waiting at the Pier. Taxi ride is pretty long, I would say it took us 45 minutes- however it is a nice way to see some of the island.... More

I have not been diving for 2 years due to 6 knee surgeries and complications. I bid on a week stay in St Thomas at a Leukemia fund raiser and I had been released by my doctor to dive. I contacted a couple dive shops to see if they had ladders that go deep enough for me to get in... More

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

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
