My wife and I went diving yesterday and we were very impressed. Although we brought our own mask and fins, they supplied the rest, including shorty suits. They supplied us with Scubapro BCD's and regulators, dive computers, and the gear was top notch. Our first dive was a wreck dive of a 150' freighter, which had one small and one... More

Was headed to Anguilla and checked out the reviews and figured this would be the dive shop to head to. We sailed in from St. Maarten and were anchored in Road Bay (aka Sandy Ground) and figured we'd take a taxi up to Shoal Bay go diving with Shoal Bay Scuba. Once we got to Road Bay, I noticed a...

We enjoyed a day doing with Matthew and his team before carnival started. While the weather topside was a challenge the water down below was great. We dove a wreck off Meads Bay (Osster Diep sp?) and loved it. We will be back another time when we can dive more outside of Carnival week, they shut down the diving due... More

We appreciate your comments and agree although a bit choppy on the surface that day, once we where 10 feet down it was a great dive with a fun group of divers and freindly sealife. We hope to dive with you again when next in Anguilla Matthew & Najee More

Had fun with Matthew and his team and great assistance on all fronts. They handle all the gear and make it easy and stressless as possible. Only disappointment is that only drinks were served between dives- not even a piece of fruit or a cookie. We have never been diving anywhere (after over 100 dives) with no snack. So be... More
