I started using Chris Sawyer Dive Center back in the 1990's. They are very knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to deal with. My last dive was the wreck of the Rhone in the BVI's. Their gear and hospitality are top notch.

I was in the Virgins this past March and was advised by another dive operator that Sawyers is out of business. There was discussion about a new buyer that would operate on St THomas but the St John operation was being handled by other operators.

This place sucks. I would go to the ritz's dive shop, patagonia or patagon. They are really cool and flexable, and don't act all put out like the chris sawyer place does. Sawyer seems as if they are at their wits end when you ask...More

Chris Sawyer Dive Shop is one of the best on the island, if not the best. His dive masters, boats and equipment are first rate. His staff are all mature professionals who make everyone at ease and relaxed. I will dive with them again.

We rented diving equipment from them to do a beach dive from Coki Beach and they were so amazingly helpful and went out of their way to make our diving experience enjoyable. I recommend them highly!
