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.

Johns area and one to the BVI’s for snorkeling with Sam and Jesse and of course for one trip, Lucy. Competency, safety and fun were the standard for... More

Thanks for the great review David - it was a pleasure showing you and your family our beautiful islands. And Lucy (the boatyard dog we've taken in and who has become a part of our family, for those who don't know her!) has a few new friends for life! Sam and Diane More

Our family party of 14 spent the holiday week in St. Thomas and 11 of us enjoyed two terrific trips with Aqua Action. Sam and Jessie were great guides on a snorkel trip to St. John plus some other stops and a separate snorkel/island hopping day trip to the BVI. They really worked hard to give us the best possible...

If you're looking to become a certified scuba diver while you're on vacation on St. Thomas definitely go to Aqua Action Dive Center. Within the week if you go out with them you will become certified. They have great instructors and their boat is really nice. Diane, the owner, is extremely nice and will set everything up for you. Sue... More

We signed up for a ~3 hour snorkeling tour with Aqua Action Dive Center at Secret Harbor. I must say that this was a great experience and Captain Rick and dive master Dwayne were professional and entertaining at the same time. I particularly liked the small size on the tour group. We went to 2 different snorkel locations and the... More

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
