Discover Scuba in St Thomas

Recommended Posts

We just booked a cruise and coming back to St Thomas. We did a Discover Scuba at Coki last time and LOVED it but the water was less than gentle during our dive. I'm not sure if it's normally like that (my hubby ended up giving up and had to be pulled back to the beach from being so worn out). We were told that coming around the corner at Coral World is a lot of drift type action and once you get around it, you're fine.


The other times we have been here we have also went to Coki, also Sapphire Beach, and Linquist.


Is there another place to do a Discover Scuba that might have more gentle water that's not going to wear us out trying to see anything?


Let me know what dive shops are available.


So far Aqua Marine is too expensive: $140/pp

Aqua Action is $90 so not bad. They dive at Secret Harbour it says. Anyone know if diving from the beach there is any good?

Red Hook is $169 so a little expensive.

I can't seem to find a website for Blue Island.

I don't see DSD listed for Admiralty.


Any others that I'm missing?


Thanks in advance.

We have snorkeled from the beach at Secret Harbor.  We have snorkeled from beach at all of the beaches you mentioned.  We recently returned to snorkel at Secret Harbor after having gone there about 6 years ago and decided  Secret Harbor is the best of the choices.  Since I can't dive anymore I do like to snorkel every chance I get.


Hope this helps
