“I completed my PADI Divemaster with Sail Caribbean Divers”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

I arrived in Tortola in October 2013 till December to continue my dive education from PADI Advanced Open Water Diver up to Divemaster. Meli and Mike who are the Directors of the company are so lovely and really welcoming. They make you feel like you are part of the family and the team. All the staff are fantastic and brilliant instructors. It is all very professional and their dive equipment is new and well cared for. The dive sites around the BVI's are stunning and if you are lucky like me there is a wild dolphin that some times comes and says hello when you are diving.

I highly recommend this dive centre, I had such an amazing time and made some amazing friends. It was such a positive experience that I have just completed my IDC and IE and am now an Open Water Dive Instructor.

Special thanks to Mike and Meli and all the team xxxxx

“Amazing experience with a Divemaster Pro-internship”
Reviewed February 22, 2014

I was looking for a place to get some work experience as a Divemaster and came across Sail Caribbean Divers who offers a pro-internship for people like me who've already completed their Divemaster course. It seemed like a great opportunity and it definitely was!
I spent a month with SCD working five days a week. I gained experience in so many fields from general seamanship over customer service both on the boats and on land to handling a compressor.
I got to experience first-hand how well the guests are taken care of and see "behind the scenes" of the dive operation and I can therefore with absolute certainty say that I would love to come dive with SCD on my next holiday! The staff is welcoming and friendly, the equipment is very well-maintained and the dive sites are awesome. Even after mostly diving on the RMS Rhone I still find it very interesting and exciting.

“A huge thank you to all at Sail Caribbean Divers!”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

I recently completed my PADI open water diver training and several further open water dives with Sail Caribbean Divers. The whole crew were extremely friendly, helpful and went out of their way to make my visit a great experience. My dive instructor Gina was especially professional, supportive & knowledgeable. Their facilities including boats and rental dive equipment were all in excellent order. I would recommend dive training with this company to anyone.

Highlights other than gaining my certification included diving the wreck of RMS Rhone at Salt Island and a close encounter with a Dolphin at Cooper Island. The choice of excellent dives sites in the area also included Thumb Rock and Cistern Point. I hope to return to BVI to dive again and will certainly be choosing Sail Caribbean Divers when I do.

“A NJ Wreck Diver Gives Sail Caribbean & the Rhone a "Thumbs up" (After the dive, of course!)”
Reviewed January 26, 2014

I've been spoiled diving wrecks all over the world, so - even after doing much reading on the Rhone - I didn't expect much from a wreck in some clear-water resort location.

Boy, was I surprised. Even after 150 years, there's plenty to see! We met Sail Caribbean Divers at Hodges Creek Marina on Tortola, but they will happily pick you up on Cooper Island or rendezvous with your boat near the dive site itself.

Highly recommended operation. Well-run, clean, orderly boat. As I was on vacation with my non-diving wife I was only planning on one dive day in the BVIs, so opted to bring only personal gear and regs, renting BCD from them. Their rental gear was all as-new AquaLung stuff and well maintained. BCDs are not weight-integrated, so you'll use a belt. All gear, including a shorty wetsuit, was included in two-dive price.

Was happy that they let me do my own thing, as none of the other passengers were qualified for the penetration/exploration I was hoping to do. They do a nice historical briefing during the surface interval between the deeper and shallower dives.

Thanks very much for your feedback, we are glad you enjoyed your dives with us! The Rhone really is special, we had a resident dolphin there for 2 weeks over December, and a turtle living in that swim through more recently. The wreck has been down there for all those years, but there is always something new to see! Hope we see you on our dive boat again soon.
Regards,
Sail Caribbean Divers
