“Professional and Passionate!”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

My sister and I stopped in St Barts during a cruise and were fortunate to link up with Didier and David at La Bulle. They organized a no-notice night dive (our first) and it was AMAZING! I had such a great time that I was back the next day for a two-tank dive, ending with my own private dive (no minimum participant requirements like some other places). I borrowed all equipment (well maintained) and safety was definitely a top priority. As one other review stated, the team at La Bulle are definitely passionate about the sport and it showed. I highly recommend anyone planning to dive in St Barts to sign up with La Bulle! If I am ever back that way again, I will DEFINITELY dive with them again! My sister loved your company's tank top! Thanks for the memories, Didier and David!

**Of note, they only accepted cash when I was there.

“Absolutely Fantastic”
Reviewed March 15, 2013

After several years of wanting to try diving, this trip to SBH I finally "took the plunge". I couldn't have found two better guys to introduce me to the sport. From the minute of my arrival-- not knowing really what to expect, they put me at ease. Their knowledge, skill, and patience are unmatched- David and Didier make a great team.Safety and knowledge of your equiptment is paramount; and I might add that all their equiptment is new and well- maintained. This is one-on-one diving,so you learn the skill while open water-both are excellent teachers.I did three dives-all different sites, all very beautiful! We all know St Barths is beauiful from land, however,it might be more beautiful from under the water; much to see on every dive. I am not sure why I waited so long to do this, but now that I have, I am addicted and plan on returning to be certified. Thanks guys,for a fantasic life experience. I hope to be back sooner than later!

My wife and I had a great time. We hadn't been diving in a long time, but the instructors were great teachers and very supportive. It truly was an amazing experience that I highly recommend!

“A contagious love for diving”
Reviewed January 28, 2013

About 10 years ago, I took a diving class for certification. From the start, I didn't feel comfortable with the instruction, nor my abilities. I never finished the course. I approached La Bulle with similar apprehensions. It immediately became clear that these instructors had both the experience and demeanor to make for an enjoyable, educational week.
I won’t even attempt to describe the diving conditions. I grew up in Rhode Island and have been around the ocean for 40 years; the visibility, coral and sea-life of St. Barts are on a different level. It was everything I imagined diving could be.
Didier and David made everyone feel welcomed. Both instructors shifted from French to English with ease; fully informing everyone on the dive. Our safety was insured and they never once made the sport feel like work. Their love for diving is contagious. I would recommend La Bulle to experienced divers, beginners and second-chancers like myself.
