We went on a 2 tank dive on December 15, 2016 with friends. Sam and Michele were awesome. The diving was exceptional. We speared lion fish. Had encounters with several reef sharks, huge mutton snapper, and spotted eagle rays.

Thanks to Sam, it only took me three days to get my scuba giving certification. He is very patient and professional. He gave me lots of good advice to help me pass the tasks. All the crew members are super nice. I had great dive experience with them. I'd love to dive with them again when I go back to... More

I took a two tank dive. I felt in really good hands even though I haven't been diving in 15 years. And the gear was in a fine condition.

First, let me say I've been scuba diving for 15 years, and have done so with many different operations in many different destinations. My wife and I recently returned from our first visit to St Croix where we dived with Dive Experience. I only wish more dive operations were like this one. What makes them different? They are more safety... More

Michelle Pugh, diving legend, sets up her shop in Christiansted and runs a great shingle there. I had the privilege of diving with Sam, Bob, and (another) Michelle for two days, and loved their curated selection of dive sites on the north side of St. Croix. There's an abundance of wealth to pick from, and these folks will get you... More

We have been diving with Dive Experience for about 14 years on our annual vacations. It never ceases to amaze me that their enthusiasm and professionalism never waiver. They dive the incredible sites on a regular basis, and everyday they are just as excited as everyone else on the boat to get into the water and explore. While respecting nature... More

Loved our experience! The staff is really a 5 star Padi operation. Old school professionalism with contemporary flair. We dove with them 10 years ago and found the same expertise this visit. Can't wait to go back!

I ended up purchasing all of my gear at Dive Experience, because Michelle, Hillary and Sam were so helpful in sharing their knowledge and personal experience. Did my first dive on their boat this past weekend and it did not disappoint. We dove two great locations and the boat is very comfortable and Sam and Michelle were great about pointing... More

The staff, Michele,Hillary, Sam ,Gary ,and the owner Michele and the big boss Skeeter truly made us feel like family. My girlfriend earned her certification from Dive Experience. They were very patient with her,since she is closterphobic. They made her feel comfortable with the whole experience. Thank you so much for your professionalism and passion as divers and instructors.
