No need to write a lengthy review here. This is a great shop. Great prices, friendly service, great equipment.
My wife and I rented some snorkel equipment from here for a week, plus we got a nice handy snorkeling guide and some good chit chat from the owner.
If you're looking for a place to rent, here it is! :)

We rented snorkeling gear from The Scuba Shop on our recent trip to St. Martin. The gear was of good quality and in good shape. Ilya took the time to fit us properly, and when we discovered that the Oyster Pond shop did not stock corrective masks, she offered to find out if the Simpson Bay shop had them. She emailed us promptly the next morning, we were able to swap the masks out in Simpson Bay the next day. Good service, good advice, no problems.

Ilja was very helpful in getting us prepared with dive gear before our sail. The shop is right in the Oyster Pond marina which was extremely convenient for gearing up. Ilja responded to emails weeks prior to our trip to help get us prepared and the dive map they give for free is pretty beneficial. Would definitely rent from them again.

I can't say enough about how helpful the staff at The Scuba Shop has been! Even though we weren't able to book anthing through them, they were quick to answer all my emails. Not only were they happy to provide information about tours but also about where to eat, how to get around the island, and any other details to make our short time on St. Martin as memorable as possible! I want to give a special shout out to Kim as she is the one who I corresponded with but if the other staff members at The Scuba Shop are as helpful as she has been, then you can't go wrong.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review for us.

Today is the day that you are here and, even though it is a really busy day, (and a bit windy), I hope that you will be able to enjoy the best of our island and get in some good snorkeling, great beaching and yummy food.
