We had a terrific experience diving with SCUBA during the week of our trip to St. Croix! Best of all, our 11-year-old son got certified with Scott, who was incredibly patient. Scott didn't let our little guy cut any corners and made sure that he completed each skill during his pool and open water dives. It had been a while... More

Thank you for bringing your son to us for his PADI Openwater certification dives. Many people probably don't even realize that an 11 year old can become a certified diver (actually even at 10 they can). We love to teach family members as we know we're giving them a wonderful hobby that everyone can enjoy together as a family for... More

Everything about my experience w/ SCUBA can be summed up in one word-Incredible! This was my first dive ever and once in the water, I immediately panicked and forgot everything that I had learned just a few hours prior to the dive. Fortunately for me, I had an amazing dive instructor and thanks to Cory, he talked me through the... More

SCUBA is a veteran dive shop in St. Croix, loved by locals and visitors alike. Ed and Molly have run the place for decades, and no one has a bad word to say about them. They hire great crew, have the biggest dive boat on island, and know the reef blindfolded. You are safe in their hands.

My airline seatmate and long-time St. Croix denizen and experienced diver recommended this outfit for our diving activities. We had diver refresher training in a pool, then a night dive off the Fredriksted Pier and a two-tank dive at points along the north coast. Nicely done, very well organized, tending to all of the safety issues while keeping everything very... More
