What You Can Expect

Best St Maarten Scuba Diving for Certified Divers

Scuba dive in St Maarten!

Your St Maarten diving adventure begins when you board the spacious and well-equipped dive boat at Simpson Bay or Divi Little Bay (depending on which morning time you select.) A short cruise over gorgeous turquoise waters of the Caribbean brings you to your first dive site at a depth of approximately 75 feet (23 meters). You’ll be in the company of highly trained and professional PADI guides who provide a safe and fun experience for all.

Dive sites are chosen on the morning of the dive, depending on diver skill level, weather conditions and the group's preferences. Possible dive sites from Simpson Bay include the remains of the old Simpson Bay Bridge encrusted with corals and sea sponges. Surrounded by three sunken sailboats, this site is teeming with marine life, including eels, lobsters, stingrays and even the odd reef shark.

From Divi Little Bay you might dive at Teigland, where schools of huge fish dart around an old ship and eagle rays glide over the reef. Or head to Mike’s Maze to find large and colorful coral formations in the extended reef. If you have a favorite type of dive site, simply let the crew know on the day and they will do their best to accommodate your request (subject to local conditions).

Please note: As this is a certified diving activity, you are required to show your certification card and complete a health questionnaire to participate.
