Outstanding experience again!! We have dived with Dive BVI multiple times over the past couple of years, most recently this February. Outstanding service as always. Marc was great with us. We dove the Rhone, lunch at Cooper Island and cocktails at Pussers. Perfect day. On past dives Marc dove with our kids (16 and 12) and they had a great time!! Highly recommend them.

We did the day trip to Anegada from Virgin Gorda, Becca and Tara took care of us in the water and on the beach while Rudy handled the wheel on the boat! Dive BVI not only provides snorkel gear and floaty vest but they bring a bag of buckets, shovel and balls for the kids to play with! Becca and Tara took the group on a guided snorkel trip and provided some info along the way.. we had a chance to see a turtle on our trip! They took extra time with my 7 year old making sure her mask was fitted properly and enjoyed the tour! Dive BVI is a top notch operation!

Dove with Dive BVI in the second half of a 15 day trip to St. John and Virgin Gorda. We were quite impressed with the St. John operation...I'm glad we didn't go to Virgin Gorda first. Dive BVI outshined the other operation like the Virgin Gorda sun vs. a good dive light.
To start, here are the baseline things that impress me about a first rate operation: Great site selection (more later), Excellent Gear care (tagged and setup/rinsed all gear for every day, and extra rinsed befor the trip home), Great and professional staff in the shop and fastastic divemasters and skippers on the boats (more later), and smooth, fast and uncrowded boats.
That would normally be enough for a 4 or 5, but they went above and beyond.
Above: We went the first day, Sunday, to the wreck of the Rhone, which is a famous dive. I'd been there once, and my wife twice. It was an AMAZING dive with a bottlenose dolphin playing with us the whole time, but I can't credit Dive BVI for the dolphin. The ABOVE was the excellent, funny and informative briefing during the surface interval about the ship, it's history, the story of the wreck, and it's aftermath. The divemaster connected what we saw on the first dive and what we would see on the second with the story. Well Done!
BEYOND: Tuesday is their regular day to dive the Rhone (Sunday was a special request by a different diver). We figured we'd go back again, which was okay, though we'd rather go someplace new. They told us we were on a different boat, since we'd already seen the Rhone. They took just three divers on that huge boat all alone! We had one divemaster on board for the three of us. Unfortunately, the third diver was uncomfortable or poorly trained on his gear, and we had to wait on the surface for him to figure it out. What did they do? The skipper geared up and took the third guy himself (after double tying the boat to the mooring anchor, of course) so we had the divemaster to ourselves.

Can't say enough about this group, though 2061 characters is probably getting close. Thanks Team!

My husband and I spent this past week on Scrub Island and took advantage of Dive BVI located on the property. We both did the Island Hopper Trip and my husband enjoyed two dive trips. We rented snorkeling gear on other days from Dive BVI, paddled over with the hotel's kayak and snorkeled locally at Diamond Reef. Every time we were with the staff we received recommendations and learned a lot about the local area and sites. Special thanks to Clayvorne, Tara, and AJ!

Customer service is paramount with these guys. From the moment I contacted Vivian via email looking for information to the actual dive with Mikey and Marc, these guys were excellent. This was my first diving experience after a 20 year hiatus and Mikey made it so comfortable and tension free. My wife was a first time snorkeler and thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon dive/snorkel trip with Marc.
