“Christmas diving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 8, 2014

My wife and I came off a cruise ship and had a great day diving with this outfit. We were amazed they were open Christmas day and had a great experience once again. (we dove here two years previously) Both times I have made reservations privately in advance although coming to the island via a cruise ship. They have picked us up from the ship, been very professional in the dive presentations on shore and safety on the dive boats. I will be back again, and would recommend this dive operator to all my dive friends. Thanks for a heat Christmas experience!

“excellent experience for beginner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 31, 2013

i took my certification courses before leaving for St. Kitts with the hopes of doing my open water dives during my vacation. i was a little apprehensive at the thought of my first dive, but after meeting with staff at Dive St. Kitts i signed up immediately. My first dive experience was excellent and i felt very confident that i was in good hands thanks to staff. Capt. Crabby, Dive master Dan, Tucker and Nick. They were fantastic and i would recommend this outfit to anyone with plans on diving the St, Kitt area.

“Fantastic experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 24, 2013

Dive St. Kitts is a very well run operation. We called the day before from our cruise ship to arrange dives and the staff was helpful during the booking. The shop is nice and takes PADI standards very seriously with appropriate steps to verify certification and classroom-style briefing before leaving. The team helped with both rental and equipment that was brought from our group. Our group ranged from open water certification tests to dive master, but the levels of experience were balanced well and we all had fun. We did one wreck dive, which was fantastic. It featured a broken apart ship and even construction equipment. The second was a reef with a good amount of sea life. I would not hesitate to use Dive St. Kitts again. Side note: we got a free rum punch afterward. :)

“Best little dive company in St. Kitts”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 20, 2013

We had the opportunity to dive with these guys off of our cruise ship last week and they were outstanding. We scheduled them separately from the cruise ship excursions so there were only 8 of us in the dive group. Safety, outstanding service, detailed dive briefings, and good quality gear are their hallmarks. Perhaps equally important, they made it very easy to work with them. They picked us up right at the dock from our cruise ship and brought us back in plenty of time to do some shopping and other activities before the ship sailed. They handled all our dive gear from beginning to end and made sure it was well rinsed in a large soak tanks after ending our dives.

They were very conscious of the choppy conditions that morning and were exceptionally helpful in getting us and our gear back aboard the dive boat. We had three dive masters for the eight of us and they made sure everyone had a fantastic time safely. They completed initial and final gear checks for us and made everything and everyone was in good shape before dropping. These guys have a great sense of humor and while serious about safety, it was never over bearing. I would trust them with my kids.

They provided complete histories of the two WWII wrecks we dived that morning and pointed out where torpedoes had hit, why the ships ended up on the bottom and other interesting sites and features. The dives were very nicely timed and their service was some of the best we have ever seen. We were down to a max of 65 feet for about an hour for the first dive and 35 feet for just over an hour for the second dive. They provided a good deal of freedom to explore and while we did not penetrate the wrecks, we got poke into the cargo holds and other parts allowing a good view. They are the only ones we will dive with when returning to St. Kitts.
