“Great beginner experience”
Reviewed October 28, 2009

My wife and I went snuba last weekend. It was probably like their discover Scuba package in that it allowed us to try Snuba (scuba with a 20ft hose) without certification. Due to rough conditions we weren't able to go to the reef, but I can imagine there would have been a lot more to see. We did get to practice breathing through a regulator and adjusting the pressure in our ears. These were things that we needed to make sure we could do before we invested in getting scuba certification. So now when we get a chance we will probably get certified.
Overall Snuba is fun, easy, and good way to spend a few hours in St. Maarten. The water is crystal clear and if you go out to a reef you should be able to see all kinds of sea life.

All of the fun and beauty of scuba diving with out all the bulky equpiment and timely lessions. If you visit St. Maarten this is something you must do.

“Snuba in St. Martin”
Reviewed October 24, 2009

Fantastic experience! I wasn't sure if snuba would be for me, but Octopus Snuba has changed my mind. This is just the first in many more underwater adventures to come!
