I went diving with Dive Master Steve. I had not been diving in several years. I was very apprehensive. I talked to him about it and he listened carefully to my concerns. He planned a very gentle shore dive and took it slow and easy with me. He reviewed things with me and we did a shallow dive to make sure that I could surface at any time. He monitored my needs every step of the way. I felt totally comfortable with him! Since I have seen posts with more elaborate dives. Now that we are at home I will take a refresher course, and when we are back on St. John I hope to book one of those cool looking dives!

This family owned and operated business is excellent! Everyone that I came into contact with is extremely professional. I got my Open Water certification through Busy Bee. My instructor, Bryan was great! I enjoyed the fact that he laid out the dive plan and for what was to go on for that day, which was helpful. He answered all my questions and gave more than one explanation if I didn't understand something the first time. Bryan cares about his students. The day after I had become scuba certified, my son, who's nearly 13 was able to take the intro to scuba course & I of course got to log my first dive. My son now wants to get certified. Thank you Busy Bee for making his first dive so enjoyable. I recommend Busy Bee and if I get to come back to St. John, USVI I hope to get more certifications through them.

I did a PADI refresher course with Bryan after nearly 20 years of not diving. He was patient, kind, and conveyed feelings of safety and competence. Thanks to Bryan, my confidence in both my ability to enjoy diving, but also be a responsible and safe diver is restored. I highly recommend Bryan and Busy Bee as an outstanding dive operation; one that offers terrific and personalized service; and as good stewards of the special St. John environment.

I first encountered busy bee through a dive buddy, the advice and expertise Bryan had helped me discover many dive locations I hadn't even known existed. If you are in the area and need tanks filled, Advice or simply want to dive I highly recommend Busy Bee for an outstanding service.

The owner of Busy Bee has helped me and my friends out many times with diving gear and even has a service to pick up and drop off around the island of St. John on certain days of the week. He and his wife are so knowledgeable and helpful with everything they can. If you get a chance to meet and work with them please do. You will absolutely not regret it.
