Two Tank Certified Dive Shore Trip
Waters are warm and inviting, the marine life is abundant, and you'll really be able to explore the undersea world of St. Maarten on this two-tank certified dive.
Moray eels, turtles and southern stingrays are common sightings on this St. Maarten excursion, and frogfish and jawfish are a treat to find. Once you arrive at the resort and check in with the staff on the beach, you will meet your certified dive master and suit up. Your diving gear is included with this tour.
Your dive master chooses dive sites the morning of the dive to ensure the best decision is made based on that day's weather and sea conditions. The custom dive boat provides a comfortable ride during your St. Maarten excursion. The platforms provide giant stride entry and ladders allow easy exit from the water. Dive groups are kept to around 12 per boat, with two to three dive staff accompanying.
After the dive, you are welcome to use the beach area for swimming. Chairs are available for rent, and food and beverages are available for sale.
