I just completed four days (8 dives) of diving with the crew from Scuba Steve's Diving in Rodney Bay. Don’t let the small size of the office fool you. This crew is efficient, professional and safety oriented. Every dive started with a discussion of the dive plan and review of signals. The first dives were in the Soufriere area near the Pitons such as Superman Flight, and during the dive interval we motored north to Anse Couchon North for example for the second dive. The most we had was 6 divers aboard and we picked up divers enroute from resorts on the trip south. The divemasters knew where the best features were located on each dive such as the tunnel at Rosemond Trench to and octopus’s garden at Anse Cochon. I completed my 100th dive with theses guys and it was a great experience.

Communications with this company was very slow. I attempted to set up some dives prior to my visit to St. Lucia, but it was difficult to pin them down even though we had 5 divers. Even when we got to the island, communication was challenging. From our hotel, it was a 3 minute walk which was the best way to schedule our dives. When we were logging in, we signed a waiver, but no one ever asked us when our last dive was or how many dives we had. As a PADI divemaster, I never would have known it was a PADI center. The prices were reasonable and the equipment was ok. They had shorties, which were great for keeping you warmer during the dives and they shuttled us by boat down the Pitons which was the best diving on the island. We did a drift dive on Superman's Flight which was a bit of a challenge for new divers. We were supposed to pick up some Discover Scuba people but they were a no show. It was a good thing because I do not know how they could ever have done that dive safely and enjoyed their experience. Apparently, the site was known for being inconsistent as far as conditions go. My 78 year old uncle who was a dive instructor in the 70s hasn't dived for a while. He had trouble descending and aborted the dive early. I thought a lot of one of the crew who, on the next dive, said that he paid a lot of money for a dive and he had Uncle Ron suit up again to try in calm waters. It didn't work out, but I was grateful that they tried again. My group of divers have experience with different islands and are fairly good divers. Three of them lost buoyancy throughout the dive and we had to take care of each other while the divemasters just watched. They weren't very active with finding critters, like some other dive companies. However, the boat captain was very skilled with maneuvering the boat in the choppy waters and the dive crew set up our equipment in between dives. There was water to keep hydrated and some sandwiches and cookies for in between dives. I don't understand why the reviews are so high because there were two other parties that dived with Scuba Steve at our resort. One usually dove 11 days of his vacation and he was so unimpressed that he only dove with them once. The other party had an equipment error on her dive and had to buddy dive to the surface. The regulator failed to deliver air during the last 10 minutes and she had over 1000psi left. Her experience and calm during this episode allowed her to resort to her training and safely ascend to the surface. I would have loved to have gone out again, but I was not impressed with this company. I would only recommend them only because they were the only option so close to the resort.

Great team in the office and on the boat. I had some great dives over a variety of dive sites. Guides and boat crew were excellent and the reefs and marine life very pretty. Highly recommended.

I had a great couple of dives a few days ago having not dived for for over 18 months thanks to UK lockdowns. . We went down to the Anse Cochon region did a quick refresher and then did two dives. Dwight, the boat captain and Alvin and Vernessa were very good. With only four divers on board it was nice and relaxed. I had emailed beforehand indicating the type of diving I was looking for and listed contraindications. The reply was prompt and assessed my concerns. On the first dive I had the weights in the BCD and, after doing the giant stride was checked out for neutral bouyancy. All was fine and they took care checking I was comfortable before descending. The dive was great and some of my skills came back quickly. On the 2nd dive we agreed to put the equipment on in the water. Again they were careful with me. I was more relaxed on the 2nd dive and had time to use my camera which had been waiting over lockdown to get these pictures. In the way back the atmosphere was good and Vernessa and I discussed pumpkins, octopus and Dennery Segment songs! An added bonus was a prompt pickup at 9am and delivery back to the beach where I walked up to the resort with the sound of the steel pan playing. Thst is a memory I will treasure. Reasonably priced and a good day. Thank you!

At 59 I finally got around to completing my Open water qualification after doing a number of try dives on various holidays. Then COVID happened and in October this year my wife and myself finally got this holiday. I looked up and found Scuba Steve’s and went to visit the shop (screen shot directions before leaving WiFi if doing this) I explained my situation (Now 61 years old very little experience and hadn’t dived for 2+ years) I was reassured that the dives would be steady and tailored and they were perfect. A short re activation refresher Neil was happy to set up my gear but I asked to do it myself with supervision and he was very accommodating, and then into an interesting dive where Neil was attentive but not intrusive. I was surprised as to how quickly it all came back and felt confident that had I missed anything Neil would not have! Neil has a really good eye for spotting interesting undersea life. Hiding octopus, camouflaged stone fish lobster etc. Nothing big on my dives but great to be back in the water. Great crew from the young lady in the office to the boat captain and instructors. I also met the owner a nice guy who appears hands on and determined to maintain the shop’s reputation Thanks all for pitching my dives perfectly
