Arranged a kayak tour and some kayak rentals directly with the owner, Andre, for a group. I tried to arrange payment in advance, but Andre insisted to do it afterwards. Once the service was provided, I tried more than once to connect with Andre to pay, and he reassured me someone from the staff would come over to the hotel... More

It is surprising that you do not remember the events of your interaction with us. First off you were uncertain of the package you wanted to book, we were very patient and worked with you to finalize your plans, this took 4 to 6 times going back and forth with you till all was finally arrange. You decided to only... More

This dive operator is on site at Marigot Beach Club hotel which was very convenient to us. They had a decent boat and good dive masters. Unfortunately, they are not open on Sundays, so we had to find another operator to dive with on Sunday.

We did the sea/land tour. They picked us up from the cruise ship port with no problems. The dive and dive master was excellent. Only concern was the land tour portion. The staff seemed confused as to what the land tour consisted of even after we had picked prior to arrival. Turned out ok but a little frustrating - land... More

Set up trip with them before we arrived on the island. They picked us up at the hotel and took us to their place. My girlfriend had never been diving before and our instructor took the time to ease her fears and was extremely patient with her. I don't know if we would have gotten through the first dive much...

Started off a little iffy waiting for the transportation to arrive, but there were 4 cruise ships in port. Once we got to their boat, everything went smoothly. This company is family-owned & run. I thought they did a good job of accommodating both scuba & snorkel guests. We went to 2 locations in the same bay & the reef... More

I organized diving for a cruise stop - the response and customer service to get it organized was excellent. They have a cruise ship dive package where they will pick you up and return. You do stop at the other pier, then go to their dive shop then to the boat - so you do lose a bit of time... More

Did a two tank dive with the my daughter. She is very slim and has trouble getting BCV to fit her. They were very accommodating and found an extra small for her. The boat is very nice. Looks like it could hold up yo 20 divers but we only had 6 plus some snorkelers. Pick up and drop off at... More

The staff at Dive Fair Helen is very friendly and accomodating, and they put on the best scuba diving tour! Make sure to do the shipwreck dive, as there are many things to see there. They also did kayaking tours and a custom day tour which showed off the local culture. Highly highly recommend!

I went for a 2 dive day dive. I had two reasons for choosing DFH; 1. DFH is located in the same bay as my apartment 2. DFH uses big boats with lots of options to sit in the shade. I would burn up alive on the water, so protection from the sun is very important. I contacted DFH several... More
