St. Maarten is a great dive destination. The outlying wreck and reef sites offer fantastic dives and excellent photo opportunities. Waters are warm and inviting, and the marine life is abundant. Moray eels, turtle and southern stingray are common sightings – and frog fish and jaw fish are a treat to find.
Dive Adventures was established in 1990 as part of the large water sports and boat activity center that makes up Aqua Mania Adventures.
We have 2 departure locations: Simpson Bay and Divi Little Bay. Exploring the reefs and wrecks around the island offers a unique experience. The choice of dive site is dependant on weather and sea conditions, departure location, and at the discretion of the dive leader in charge. We do our best to offer everyone a variety of dive sites during the week.
We do recommend that you start with an afternoon dive if you have not been diving in a year, recently certified or not so comfortable at first.
*CRUISE SHIP DIVERS: Please note in the winter months, ship & shore time differ. On Island, we do not change our clocks for Daylight Savings. Cruise Ships usually stick to East Coast Time. As such, shore time will be an hour ahead. Please check what time your ship docks. We depart at 9am local time, 8am ship time.*
***DIVE CERTIFICATION CARD REQUIRED***
