Wow! Just spent a great week in St Eustatius (Statia) a few weeks ago, diving with Scubaqua, and the trip was way above my expectations. I’ve done a lot of diving over the last 51 years and in the last six months have dove in Australia, Hawaii, Bonaire, Curacao and now Statia. I’d never been to Statia and when a... More

Been there early 2016 and it is a very nice, personal small groups operation. Very good quality and good equipment. Dives are very nice and varied. Very friendly and personal approach.

Our recent trip to Statia to dive was enhanced by the great drive team at Scubaqua. The whole team at Scubaqua was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, not to mention just plain fun! We will very likely be going back and I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone.

My wife and I own and operate our own eco-tour dolphin watch in South Carolina. We have been working in the diving and adventure tour business since 1993. Having planned our trip to Statia literally by flipping through the Fodor's Caribbean guide and not knowing anything about the place we went. What an absolutely rewarding risk it payed off to...

My wife and I just returned from our fourth trip to Statia and diving with Scubaqua. First, I need to tell you about all the things you are missing out on by going to Statia. 1) Loads of bars with loud, horrible music blasting at all hours of the night, and equally loud, drunken customers, staggering and puking their way...

We justed ended a fantastic two weeks diving holiday with Scubaqua at Statia. Scubaqua maintains a very high professional standard for dive-operations in all aspects: well maintained dive equipment and boats, an excellent enthousiatic team of dive-instructors guiding all dives (max 6 persons a group), an attractive location of the divecenter and a very high degree of customer service.

The staff, facilities, and of course the diving at Scubaqua in Statia were all phenomenal. The staff were extremely helpful with us as relatively new divers (doubling our logged dive count during our visit), and did a great job matching is up in groups that didn't leave us upsetting others or being left behind. Their rental equipment and valet services... More

My husband and I are professional photojournalists specializing in dive travel, and between us, we have traveled to some of the most exotic, far-flung dive destinations in the world and dived with hundreds of different operations. I have to say that Scubaqua ranks near/at the top. From the minute they picked us up at the airport until the evening we... More

We recently spent a week diving with Scubaqua Dive Center. The staff met our group at the airport and gave us a quick briefing of what to expect. (This was at 10:30p!) A few divers had luggage problems and Scubaqua's staff took care of getting their gear to them as soon as possible, even loaning gear for free until personal... More
