Great dive company. Vajai is professional and friendly. He's fun and knowledgeable about the area and everything you will see. Kenneth is great too, very knowledgeable having dove here since he was a boy. The boat is the best I've been on. A large Cat so stable and with lots of room to get your gear on and off without bumping into others. There's water on board and they will pick you up from your hotel etc. Book directly with them rather than through your hotel as it's cheaper. They don't dive Saturdays. great to learn with and great for experienced divers too. (no nitrox)

Kenneth took my wife and myself out for 2 dives in St Kitts. He took us to the artificial coral reef he is building, 2 local shipwrecks, and the natural coral reef. He was on time picking us up. Told us before we went down how long the dives would be, how deep we would be, and what to expect. We were not new to diving but hadn't been down in a couple years. Kenneth gave us a quick refresher course to make sure we would be ok. He kept us close for the first 10-15 of our first dive then let us go explore. He watched us from above making sure we were ok. I would recommend Kenneth to anyone that wants to dive St Kitts.

We researched Kenneth's dive center on-line prior to arrival by cruise ship. We made reservations ahead of time. Gail was very informative and helpful with our booking. From the cruise port we wallked a short distance; Kenneth picked us up right on time.

Kenneth, David and Gail were all very friendly and easy going. I had just completed my certification the day before. Kenneth was a great help working with me to feel comfortable and at ease. He showed us many different species of fish and creatures. He took us to different sites, the wreck & tractor were fun. He's very knowledgable about the area and the habitat; which he is helping to preserve for future divers.

When we returned to the marina, we were able to rinse our gear before gettting back on the ship. Our opinion is great service, wonderful people and lots of fun. We would definitely come see Kenneth's dive center when we return to St. Kitts in the future.

We were lucky to find Kenneth's Dive Center to complete our Certification. Our instructor Vajai, was professional, knowledgeable, thorough, comforting and extremely accommodating to our group, which consisted of one Dad and four teenagers (ages 13-18). We started our certification at home in our pool and finished with Vajai in St. Kitts. Vajai scheduled a pool dive with us first to make sure we had received proper training and only then brought us into open water. I was extremely impressed that he cared enough to make sure we were prepared before allowing us to test in open water for our certification. One member of our group (the 18 year old) was not comfortable with one of the underwater skills. Vajai spent quite a bit of time with him, in and out of the water, to make sure he was prepared and comfortable. Our certification dives were also spent enjoying time underwater and sightseeing. Vajai took amazing pictures for us that will live with us forever.

My dad and I dove with Kenneth 4 days and had a great time. Kenneth is a cool character with great local knowledge and an obvious passion for the underwater. He made sure we never dove the same sites twice and the rest of the crew was great as well. We also got to spear some lionfish and see a lot of creatures the guys pointed out that we wouldnt have seen otherwise. For a great local perspective, a lot of laughs and a smooth operation, dive with these guys!
