Overview

At Ocean Explorers we believe that who you dive with is as important as the diving itself… Small groups, personalized attention and a relaxed atmosphere are what we offer on a daily basis. From outstanding reefs to fantastic wrecks, our waters are warm and inviting and the marine life abundant and friendly. Our Caribbean dive shop is located under the waving palms by this tranquil Kim Sha beach on the beautiful Caribbean island St. Maarten.

We visited St Martin by cruise ship & did a two tank dive with Ocean Explorers. They offered transportation from the cruise ship terminal for $14/pp which made the 20 minute drive very convenient. Although the dive shop had been damaged during the recent hurricane,...More
