We enjoyed a day doing with Matthew and his team before carnival started. While the weather topside was a challenge the water down below was great. We dove a wreck off Meads Bay (Osster Diep sp?) and loved it. We will be back another time when we can dive more outside of Carnival week, they shut down the diving due... More

We appreciate your comments and agree although a bit choppy on the surface that day, once we where 10 feet down it was a great dive with a fun group of divers and freindly sealife. We hope to dive with you again when next in Anguilla Matthew & Najee More

I am a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer. I had the opportunity to dive with Matthew and his crew at the Scuba Shack twice during my recent visit to Anguilla. I highly recommend this dive centre. I was taken to some beautiful wrecks and reefs on my two days of diving. The crew was extremely knowledgeable and provided wonderful diving... More

Had fun with Matthew and his team and great assistance on all fronts. They handle all the gear and make it easy and stressless as possible. Only disappointment is that only drinks were served between dives- not even a piece of fruit or a cookie. We have never been diving anywhere (after over 100 dives) with no snack. So be... More

Dove with SBS during my trip last week and had a lot of fun. Pinky lead our dives to a wreck and a really good reef. Naji was the captain and both did a great job. We saw lobsters, eels, Rays, numerous types of fish, and a turtle. Really enjoyed diving with SBS and wouldn't hesitate to go out with... More

I was in Anguilla for a week and wanted to split my week with a day of diving. I emailed Matthew the week before and he promptly responded, giving me several days as choices. I signed up for two dives and arrived early, just as he asked. Because I was with my family, I had no room to bring my... More

We welcome comments on Tripadvior. However, we totally disagree with your review and its assertions, and wish to respond to your comments below: The crew speak only English and are both native Anguillians English being the national language. Your comment is therefore unwarranted, because both you and your wife spoke to both of the crew in English while on the... More

Very nice boat, clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Crew took great care of us and were great with our kids (ages 11 and 9). Do plan to also eat at the restaurant. Very good food, reasonable prices and friendly staff. I highly recommend Shoal Bay Scuba.

We got Padi certified on a whim. It takes a 3-4 day (4 hrs a day) commitment to receive certification. Matthew was very patient with us and made us feel safe the entire time we learned how to dive. We dove 3 wrecks with Kelly, Pinky, and Nagi ( I think that's right). They were very nice and helpful. We... More
