Had a wonderful time today diving! Damian was the instructor, even when I am a certified diver I only dive once or twice a year. Damian was very professional and took the diving experience to my level. Diving in St Maarten is an amazing experience!

I'm a somewhat infrequent diver who has recently picked back up this activity after 30 years. As such, I am open water certified but I was most interested in a dive experience where I could get a little personal guidance as well as feel safe during my dives. This dive shop is also on Simpson Bay so it was very... More

Soinnet our boat captain along with dameian(sp) make diving possible in any conditions. Yesterday proved that. We got two dives in and wouldn't have dove in most places. They were safety first and totally professional. Diving again tomorrow.

We were in St Maarten and did a discover scuba dive from Divi Bay resorts. Our group had a variety of people each with different levels of comfort when it came to the actual dive as it was most of our first time. Mark was extremely accommodating of each persons needs. It was a great trip and we were able... More

We did 6 days of diving (16 dives) with Dive Adventures/Aqua Mania. The dive boat (Dive Machine) is clean and well-maintained and the staff does a great job. Our dive masters, Mark and Eva, were fantastic! They were fun, friendly and knowledgeable. I can’t say enough about their excellence and the great care they took of their divers. They make... More

These guys are great. I felt like i had an extended family. I was on a night dive and i lost my Gopro getting back on the boat. Mark went back down in the dark for about ten minutes searching for my camera. His selfless effort to satisfy his guest is demonstrative of a group of guys that care about... More

We stayed at the Divi Resort near Philipsburg so it meant this amazing dive team had to pick us up daily and drop us off. They were predictable and so very pleasant. The boat captain, Soinet, was incredible to us. He is fun, competent, efficient and helpful getting us in and out of the water. I was unable to dive... More

Eva was terrific. She was very patient and her instruction was clear and concise. The 30 minute dive after was great and I really enjoy the underwater park. On my next trip to St Maarten I will definitely go back to wherever Eva is instructing.

I have returned to St. Maarten for many years to enjoy a relaxing week of boating, snorkeling and scuba diving and I was not disappointed.
