Our family group of six spent a fantastic afternoon on Wednesday, August 20, with your company’s Captain Gary and First Mate Dara on a snorkel swim with the sea turtles and over a shipwreck. The two made us feel comfortable with the equipment and safe throughout the excursion. Their concern for our well-being was evident. Dara proved to be an excellent underwater tour guide, providing identification of many of the sea creatures – such as green turtles, a barracuda, a small ray, sea urchins and unique types of coral. She conveyed concern for the health of the sea life we were viewing, expressing the dangers of people feeding the fish “people” snacks, as Cheetos. Both Gary and Dara gave colorful histories of the islands, which we will long remember. This is an excursion that we will take again on our next visit to your lovely islands. This adventure is not to be missed.

My cousins and I had the opportunity to do our open water certification dives with the Aqua Marine Dive Center and we couldn't have asked for a better experience after the Ritz recommended we use them. Dara was our dive instructor as was extremely thorough and knowledgeable in going over the dive skills and setting up our equipment. She made sure that we all understood what was expected out of us and always showed patience in teaching us. In fact, we were so pleased with the experience after the last open water dive, we even scheduled 2 more dives before we had to leave the island. Also, Gary was not only a great skipper for the boat, but and was a great guy to be around too.

We have already made plans to return next year and dive again with Aqua Marine, and I suggest anyone looking to dive to use these guys.

Thanks again to Dara, Gary and Gerard! See you next year!

We had the opportunity to get the rest of the family certified for scuba during our recent trip to USVI. We contacted Aqua Marine and received the best service from all the people we were in contact with. They took great care of us and made sure that we enjoyed the time while covering all the course work. Ana picked us up from the hotel and made sure all the details were taken care of. Evan and Gerard were the instructors and did an excellent job helping my wife, son and daughter through the course. They showed extreme patience helping and explaining everything to them, while making the dives into a great experience for the family. We had a great time, and next time we are in St. Thomas we will schedule our dives with Aqua Marine.

My family and I went out on the turtle adventure with Gerard and it was an experience you don't want to miss. Truly spectacular sights that were breath taking. I was truly afraid of getting in the water but Gerard was with us every step of the way as we snorkeled for an hour seeing and interacting with turtles, tropical fish, colorful coral, and crystal clear blue waters. Our second snorkel sight was a ship wreck! Book today!!!! Gerard was the best!!!
