I wanted to go scuba diving in Antigua with my friends. We walked down the beach and spoke with Carolin at Jolly Dive. She was very friendly and helpful, so we scheduled a two tank dive for the following AM. We arrived, they helped get all of our equipment set up, and they brought it to the boat for us.... More

Dive guides are all very knowledgeable and friendly. They are good at pointing out things underwater as they use dive slates to communicate what you are looking as well.

Jolly Dive staff are very professional and fun. Had great dives on all three day booked, even with rough seas. Dive shop is less than 5 minute walk down the beach from Jolly Beach Resort. Would definitely use them again. Hope to be back soon. Thanks.

I have an OWD but not too much experience and... More

As a novice diver, my priority is to find a dive shop that will accommodate my interests as well as my level of skill. Jolly Dive crew matched both. The staff were very professional and made both dives enjoyable and safe.

My husband and I did a 10 dive/5 day package with Jolly Dive. We emailed a month or so in advance of our stay to secure our spots and they did not require a deposit. The shop is only a 2 minute walk from Jolly Beach Resort where we stayed (reviewed separately) so it was very convenient. We showed up... More
