I am an experienced snorkeler, but I have never been scuba diving. Our resort offered a free intro to scuba class in the pool and I figured, why not, looks fun! James, the instructor was great. Emphasized safety and familiarity with the equipment. Very patient with nervous people, people who had never snorkeled, etc. But since I got the hang... More

I couldn't have asked for a better first time scuba adventure. I dove the pier with three other experienced divers, so needless to say I was a bit nervous going into it. Cory Harner was our instructor and he was absolutely amazing. His instruction was top notch. He had me feeling comfortable and confident in an unfamiliar situation in less... More

We went diving for 4 days of 2-tank morning dives and had a great time working with the staff here. Firstly, our conversation with Capt Ed was very helpful, as he not only assisted us with planning our dives but also recommendations when staying on the island, which ended up saving us a considerable amount of money. Our dive masters... More

The first thing that comes to mind about the dive is AWESOME! I have dove 4 times now in St. Croix and this is by far the best one yet! Cory was our instructor and he was great! He was so enthusiastic about diving and teaching we couldn't ask for better. The pier has so much to see and experience.... More

Dove for 2-weeks with these guys. Matt was our divemaster most of the time and was a great divemaster (only one who never had to do 'Turtle Navigation' if I remember right :) ). They are definetely experienced divers and experienced with finding all the critters hidding in the coral that we wouldn't normally notice. We saw sharks, turtles, lobster,... More

We were with a group of rebreather divers in St. Croix, USVI the last week of January 2017. We stayed that Hotel Caravelle, overlooking the harbor and dive boat dock, St. Croix Ultimate Adventures was steps away, their fill station and gear locker is in the hotel. With Cruzan rum costing $8/liter, we were sure to have a great week... More

Had the best dive ever with Cory. We met at the shop in the morning to load gear and head to the Federiksted Pier. It is unbelievable all the different things to see. We encountered Sea Horse, Octopus, Rays, Lobster, Crabs, Barracuda and a ton of fish. The dive master Cory has a passion for teaching Scuba, and all things... More

Thank you for diving with us and for writing the review of your dives on the famous Frederiksted Pier. We firmly believe it to be one of the top ten dive sites on the planet. Since you loved it so much during the day you should come back and give it a try a night. It will blow your mind.... More

Miranda, with well over 600 reviews here this is the first one that talked about our First Aid and CPR class. Thank you for taking it and for writing this great review. If more people would take the class and learn these life saving techniques like you did everyone would be just a little bit safer. Thank you again. More

We were certified last summer, and this was our first diving experience in the ocean. We were on a cruise and had a day in St. Croix. Glad we chose SCUBA for a two tank dive. They were very professional and organized, and took good care of us. Our two dive masters, Matty-Poo and Matty-Shrew (sorry guys!) were both great,... More

Biff, thank you for diving with us during your recent cruise ship stopover on St. Croix. It's great that you found us and discovered that you do much better booking your excursion from someone else other than the ship. While both Matts may have a hard time living down the nicknames you've given them we LOVE it. Thank you again... More

Received my divers certification from James Perkins and Scott Matson. Great trainers and teachers, they had an impossible mission and mission impossible completed. With a few laughs and eye-openers created by me. Thanks for all the help. Mike Johansen Fargo ND .

Mike, you were certainly no "mission impossible" for our dive team and they had a blast helping you obtain your PADI Openwater certification. The fact that they have so much fun makes it that much fun everyone. Thanks again and let's get you back here to do an Advanced certification. More
