Owner description: Welcome to Blue Water Divers and Watersports, Bermuda - we are under new ownership as of June 2012; we celebrated our one-year anniversary on 15 June 2013. We have worked hard over the past year to improve our presence on tripadvisor and other social media sites - we recognize that dive travelers are doing their research and choosing the places that best suit their needs, while focusing on the highest ratings in customer service. We run two-tank morning and one-tank afternoon trips on our 36 foot purpose-built Newton dive boat. We offer a full range of PADI courses, up to and including Assistant Instructor ratings. Please check out our website for details. If we can help in any way with planning your dives, please give us a call or contact us through our website. New transport option! WATER TAXI Bookings - for cruise passengers in Dockyard, or anyone close to Hamilton, we can book the new water taxi for you, which will pick you up and bring you directly to Robinson's Marina, and then run you back again after the dive boat gets back in. The price is similar to catching a regular taxi, and it's by far the best way to travel around Bermuda :) All the best - Chris Gauntlett | Owner/Operator | Blue Water Divers & Watersports, Bermuda

We didn't have the best weather for diving when we were in Bermuda, but the guys at Blue Water did their best to give us as much diving as they could. They also made a noticeable effort to take us to different sites each time. Very professional and friendly. Having never dived any serious wrecks before, the dives were amazing, particularly the Hermes. Even the reef dives were great - not so much sea life as other places, but some very fun swim-throughs and that kind of thing.

The whole team was exceptional. Ingrid and Chris introduced my wife to scuba. Ingrid showed my son how to equalize and escorted him on his first reef tour.

Blue Water is one of the only shops on the island open in the winter (when the viz is the best), and they’re great. I can only imagine how great it would be to dive with them in-season.

We had such a great time with all the Blue Water team. They keep you safe, explain exactly what is going to happen and make you feel very comfortable. We had people in our group that were a little scared to dive but they made us feel comfortable and we all had a great time. These guys are true professionals and great for people who are doing this for the first, second or third time. I wish we would have seen more colorful fishes but it was fun seeing a shipwreck, if you want to see a ton of colorful fishes go to one of the pink sand beaches.

After doing a fair bit of research, I decided to go with Blue Water after reading good reviews and it being such an established dive club.

Unfortunately the experience was very disappointing.. the main reason I wanted to dive in Bermuda was to see a wreck. When we got to the site it was made clear that the instructor for the certified divers did not know the site. We went under, and to be fair the visibility was bad (maybe something that could have been checked prior to diving?), but the instructors could not even find our wreck. The dive was awkward and there was a lot of confusion and eventually after barely going anyway we were told to surface. They had gone completely the wrong direction and we had missed out on the only wreck dive. We did another after at a reef which was perfectly pleasant but a sense of disappointment hung in the air.

Now these things happen and are not completely unforgivable but we were offered no money back and the dive was probably the most expensive dive I have ever been on. They were clearly disorganised, had too many different groups on the boat and charged a fortune for what was probably the worst diving experience I've ever had. Usually in these situations dive clubs will respond with either a change of plan (i.e. To find another wreck), offer of a second free dive or money back. We received nothing.

My wife and I were planning a dive trip in Bermuda for early October with all our research in place. We arrived in Bermuda as planned with plans to dive with another dive company on the island. Sadly, due to the weather and that shop's position on the island all the dives we had planned were cancelled. We frantically called the other dive shops looking for trips. Chris not only took us in on all the trip he had planned he went out of his way to make sure we had a great experience. The dives we did were amazing, safe, and fun. I couldn't recommend them more highly! We won't dive with anybody else on the island. Thank you Chris and team for a wonderful trip and saving our vacation
