This place is really a one man show. I think he could use some more divemaster staff, but it is amazing what he accomplishes on his own with just 2 office assistants and a boat captain. The diving is pristine, and he teaches wonderfully. If you want to get certified, this is a great place to do it. And he... More

Review is based on 5 2 tank dives between Feb 8 and Feb 16. I have been diving for 20 years and have 500+ dives logged. I could have had a much better experience. Email correspondence was spotty. In Nov 2014 I had made a down payment to confirm my dives. This process started in July with email responses being... More

We went diving with Cabrits off the coast of Portsmouth to the Northwest. Great decision! They really know where to go. We saw tons of fish and beautiful coral. Great dive gear to rent as well.

I wanted to dive Dominica with my son, who attends Ross Medical School on the island, so we arranged for him to do his NAUI course and pool work at home during his Christmas break, and Pete accepted his Universal Referral (despite his being PADI!) and instructed him (and another young man from the UK) for their Open Water check...

My family and I just spent the better part of the day on two dives for my husband and me and a snorkels for our two boys (too young to dive). It was delightful. First, I must admit that we were those people that got lost on the way to the shop and made everyone wait. Were they annoyed or... More

Friends and I got Open Water Diver certified with Cabrits and couldn't have asked for a better experience. Pete is an awesome instructor; he makes sure you know your stuff, are proficient and have a great "underwater profile," while keeping the course fun. It's also very affordable. I would absolutely recommend Cabrits Dive Centre.

My wife and I had a great time with Pete and his crew! We went out and speared a few lion fish for dinner. He's a great passionate guy with a love for the ocean. We highly recommend him.

Hey Pete! I promised you I'd write a review, and here I am! Cabrits is a great dive shop that will take good care of you. Pete (the owner) is a classic, ueber-educated, former big city/big business guy who decided 7-8 years ago to leave it all behind and buy himself a dive shop in the Caribbean. Now shirtless and...
