I spent a few months on the island for work and contacted Anthony beforehand in regards to diving - he was very prompt in replying with all the information and was very flexible and accommodating. He's got good quality equipment for hire and I always felt comfortable and well looked after on the dives. I would highly recommend him!

I have recently visited the Island again and Anthony has taken me through my Advanced Open Water Qualification. His explanations of the lessons are really thorough but he also makes the dives fun as well as informative. I would recommend diving with Anthony anytime you visit the island.

I recently visited St Helena and completed my PADI with Anthony. He was extremely professional, informative and made each dive either in the pool or in the sea enjoyable. I was fortunate to be able to do a further 10 dives with him before leaving. I rented all of my equipment from him and the dives were very reasonably priced. Whilst with him I managed to swim with Whale sharks and devil rays along with an abundance of other marine life. I cannot recommend Anthony highly enough either to teach you to dive or for an experienced diver. Thanks Anthony, you have shown me a new part of the world which I will continue to explore.

We took our PADI Open Water and Advanced with Anthony. He was incredibly professional, knowledgeable and made the sessions fun and safe. The courses were great value for money. The sea was nearly always warm and welcoming and we got to dive a number or wrecks and sites. One of the few highlights of the island.

We travelled here as a group of 12 friends to dive St Helena, having heard great things about the Island and the diving - Anthony and the Team made sure it lived up to our high expectations Sub Tropic Adventures is a family business - Anthony leads the diving while his son drives on of the boats and his wife helps out with all of the logistics. They are a great team and delivered an unsurpassed experience I hired my tanks, BCD and Regulator and all the kit was in good condition and well maintained. It was nice to have teh rare pleasure of diving with steel tanks. There was no lugging of equipment around, all was taken to the boats and back for us. Our diving was done from two RIBS which were comfortable and teh sites were normally no more than 15 to 20 minutes ride from 'The Steps' where we boarded. Anthony was dive master and lead guide and he provided throrough pre-dive briefings for each site. The dive sites themselves were mainly spectacular rocky reefs 15-30m deep. While their isn't much coral, the marine life is diverse and in March, the visibility was good. Three of our dives were on relatively intact wrecks, including Drysdale which while a bit deep at 35-40m, it was well worth the effort Overall, Anthony and the etam at Sub Tropic Adventures were absolutely great and I would highly recommend them for any diving in St Helena
