Never gone diving before but want to try SCUBA Diving? Come to join us on this beginner's course - Discover SCUBA Diving or also known as DSD. No prior experience and no dive certification are necessary.

The dive shop meeting place is just a short taxi ride from the pier. The PADI-certified dive instructor will be waiting for you. The first part of your excursion is a short theory study about the dive equipment, and how you will be able to breathe underwater, and let you test it all out. You will move into the water with the instructor to practice your skills. The maximum depth is only 30ft on either of the dives you will do.

Once the practice session is completed, your instructor will accompany you into the boat where you will head out for your second dive on a coral reef. Again your instructor will be by your side to assist and point out some of the incredible marine life - green sea turtles, lobsters, eagle rays and hundreds of small tropicals live on the reef. Your dive time is approximately 30 minutes for each dive.

If there are members that you are traveling with you that would like to accompany you to the beach, the dive shop is located at a beach club where they can relax and meet you afterward. Facilities there include a swimming pool, water toys, a restaurant/bar for purchases, etc. If any members of your group are certified divers, they may join along - see the information for the 2 Tank Certified Dive.

A local transportation company is used for pickup at the pier for this excursion. Cost is not included but is equal to taxi cost but will provide a more reliable service - $14.00 USD approximately.

Note: Please download and print the following PADI Discover Scuba® Diving Participant Statement (PDF document) and complete prior to participation in this St. Maarten Discover Beginners SCUBA Diving Excursion with Boat Dive.

This was such a great experience our family had even for our son who’s 14 and first time diving. The team were excellent in teaching us what to do along with being very friendly. The facility was nice and clean and not over crowded. We went out with a small group of people (6 people, four of which were with us...lol) the instructors made sure to point out things that we may have missed. Huge lobsters, puffer fish, corals, ship recks and so on. They took pictures under water with a professional grade camera that are available for purchase after the dive. (Great deal as you get all the pics from that day not just tour dive!) Definitely will be back to do this again!!

My son and I had always wanted to try scuba diving and we got our chance during our cruise stop in St. Maarten. We surely seemed to get a lot for what we paid. It was much easier than either of us thought it would be and honesty once I was under the water, I forgot to be nervous. We got to see the ocean in a whole new way. We couldn't thank our instructors enough and we will never forget our first dive.

I was on the fence about scuba diving but all of my friends are divers. While making my vacation plans I saw this shore excursion offered on the website and for the price, how can you beat it? The instruction was better than good and I felt very safe. The instructor was always right there and witnessed me falling in love with scuba diving. I am ready to join my friends now. Thank you so much!

From the minute I put on the gear, I know I was hooked on SCUBA diving. This is just an introduction to diving but it was enough to let me know I wanted more. The instructors are beyond patient and helpful.

 We haven't gone on the excursions yet but so far I am super pleased with the website. Especially because it asks for the cruise line info which is always scary for me to think we're going to miss the boat so I appreciate the validation of the cruise info.
