We were on a cruise in December with friends and family so we decided to go diving. Some of us were certified while others were doing the discover scuba. We were greeted with a friendly crew and captain. The boat already had our gear set up for us which was wonderful. The equipment looked well taken care of. The captains... More

We were a group of 9 family members who dove with Underwater Safaris while on a cruise. The positives: - the dive boat is a five-minute walk from the cruise ship pier - the dive equipment was good and the Underwater Safaris staff set up the equipment for each dive so that we didn't have to do it ourselves -...

I was in St Thomas on a cruise and decided to take a dive excursion. The onboard option ended up being Underwater Safaris and it was excellent! The staff was knowledgeable and very friendly. The boat was well laid out and included a covered area which was much appreciated in the Caribbean sun, and during a brief period of "liquid... More

Very knowledgable and professional. AND efficient. They handle all the details and get you to the dive spot . . . no monkeying around with buses of people. They have experience and know what they are doing. It is so easy to be taken in by others - choose this professional, who is also a very nice guy.

Very nice dive. One tank on Wye Reef, then one tank on Senior Cortanza. The crew treated us like family. While back aboard the cruise ship, I realized I forgot my camera in the rinse bucket. When I got back home, I contacted the dive shop. They packaged up my camera & returned it. They are very honest & professional.

I did this while on an RC cruise. The people who work for and run the business are phenomenal. I can't wait to go back again.

My partner Catherine Hayslett and I enjoyed a 2-tank dive with Underwater Safaris on November 1, 2016. The dives were arranged as a shore excursion from the Norwegian Escape cruise ship. On arrival in St. Thomas we were greeted with lousy weather however staff of Underwater Safaris stood by in the rain and waited with smiles on their faces to... More

Visited this DC as a business this and realised the diving there is average. The visibility was bad compared to the rest or Caribbean, Mexico or even the Med. Make sure to ask ask where they are diving and what kind of divers they will have that day. No experienced diver want to dive in 15ft of water with beginner... More
