My husband and I ventured out on a rainy day for a couple of dives with Matt and Captain John of SCUBA. The diving in St Croix is great, but these two really provided a great experience. The staff at the store is great too -- very helpful with signing up for dives, recommending gear. And the attached shop, Molly's,... More

Thank you for diving with us and for writing the review. It's amazing how many people think that a rainy day won't make for great diving. We're delighted that you found out otherwise. Thanks again and now that you've seen our diving on a rainy day, come back when the sun's out. More

What a great group of people. My wife and I did 11 dives each with SCUBA, 5 boat dives and one night pier dive. Enjoyed every one of them. The SCUBA crew is fun, safe, and professional. They are very knowledgeable about the dive sites. They were easy to work with when we had a schedule change for our night... More

When I went on my first DSD with SCUBA it had been nearly 8 years since my last dive experience. Needless to say, I was a little nervous going into my first dive on St Croix. Matt and Cory, the divers who helped me on my DSD, made me feel safe, secure, and excited when we went to dive the... More

Noelle, thank you for Discovering Scuba Diving with us and for taking the time to write this great review. Matt and Cory, along with all of our dive staff love teaching intro courses and watching the faces of divers experiencing the underwater world for the first time (or in your case second).

We went diving for a week. They took care of our gear everyday, no lugging back and forth everyday! Very friendly, familiar with the different sites and what you'll see at each. Recommend using them on your next visit!

Thank you for diving with us and writing the review. Many divers have decide between buying and hauling their own gear (especially with baggage fees) so we try to make it easier on them by taking care of it while here. As you saw, we even take it off the boat, rinse and store it, and have it setup and... More

With dive operators to choose from on St. Croix, I am more than happy that I picked S.C.U.B.A. for my recent trip. The staff-several of whom were fairly new to the area-were all very good as divemasters. Some of the more "Senior" staff were outstanding, both in there interactions with the guests and their knowledge of the local dive sites.... More

The crew at St. Croix Ultimate Bluewater Adventures are very professional. Professional, but made you feel comfortable and part of their team from the very beginning. It showed immediately that they all love what they were doing and that may be the key to this groups success. I had six dives with Catherine and Captain Matt and they were great!... More

Had intended to dive four days during our recent visit, but for one reason or another only got in two days diving. Nonetheless, I was pleased with my experience with SCUBA. Matt, Kathryn, Ryan and the others working the boat on my two dive days were very helpful and picked out some nice dive sites. If you're diving more than... More
