Diving with La Bulle Diving Centre was easily one of the highlights of my visit to Gustavia, St. Bartholémy. Ludo and Alain were very helpful and knowledgeable underwater guides and I would recommend them highly! The boat and equipment we used were in very good condition and the dive excursion was enjoyed by everyone on board with me that day.

My wife and I came to St. Barts from Orlando for a few days of relaxation. I wanted to get in a few dives but unsure of who to use. Trip Advisor led me to La Bulle Diving Center and I couldn't have made a better choice. It had been 2 years since I had dove and even though I... More

I traveled the Caribbean on a private yacht for about 8 months last winter - traveling from the VI to the Grenadines and back. Over the winter I probably completed around 200 dives (St. Martin, Antigua, Sabe, Statia, Nevis, Guadeloupe, Dominica, Martinique, St. Lucia, St. Vincent, Bequia and the BVI). I was in Gustavia in January and again in April.... More

Loved the experience with these guys. Got geared up and out to a site quickly. Saw turtles, lots of coral, massive lobster, and a ray. Professional operation that I would highly recommend and I would use again if I was in the area. Hunter Smith

My and my two daughters(13 and 16) went for a dive with Ludo and David. I was concerned about my 13 year old because it was her first time diving. She felt so safe and relaxed with Ludo that we ended up doing a second dive 2 days later. We saw a huge sea turtle! Amazing!!!! The guys are super... More

We had a group of four people and there was one other person that had signed up to dive that day. We had our own guide so it was like a private tour. Didier and David showed us two amazing dive sites just off the coast of St. Barths. Our favorite was Sugar Loaf where we saw barracuda, nurse sharks,... More

Had a chance to go scuba diving and snorkeling in St Barth (April/16) under the guidance of the great friends at La Bulle. Didier, his wife Joanna and David (who lived in Bahia and speaks Portuguese) took very good care of us and showed the amazing underwater scenery of the islets off Gustavia harbour, or off Colombier bay. Thank you... More

Had 2 great dives in November. Joanna and Didier made things easy and a real pleasure. Didier pointed out lots of cool sea-life and for a relative novice open water diver made me feel very confident and safe. Loved the post dive rum punch too Joanna! See you again next time - Britt Cavallaro from Long Beach, CA.

Didier and his wife Joanna have a great diving operation! The beautiful underwater scenery and life in St Barth's is wonderful to experience up close and personal on a dive. La Bulle's nice equipment, fast boat, and incredibly friendly and helpful personalities made this a top notch experience. Didier was a great divemaster who started with a good pre-dive briefing,...
