My wife and I just came back from St. Martin. We dove 2 days - 2 dives each day - with Octopus diving. We enjoyed both days and would highly recommend them to anyone. The operation was professional yet friendly. They realized that we were there on vacation to relax and have fun, yet they did not skimp on safety.
We have not been to St. Martin in 17 years and do not remember it as the best dive place we have gone to. But we thoroughly enjoyed this trip. The first day Sally was our divemaster. The atmosphere was calm and relaxing. Only 4 divers on the boat and we had Sally to ourselves, just my wife and myself as Aure took the other 2 - for both dives! We went on shallow dives and were able to stay under for 70 minutes for the first dive and 60 for the second. We say turtles, eagle rays, sting rays, barracuda and lobsters. There were plenty of reef fish as well to watch.
The second day there were again only 4 divers on the boat. The first dive Aure was our divemaster and the second Stuart served that role. Both of them were professional, courteous, and patient. We again had relaxing, interesting dives without sacrificing safety. The dives were deeper adn we made the requisite safety stops. They knew the reefs well and knew where to find the interesting creatures to share with us.
I would not hesitate to recommned Otopus Diving to anyone wishing a fun and safe experience on St. Martin.
