This was our first time diving after getting certified and we had a fantastic trip. Our first dive took us to the Kittiwake. We were apprehensive as we are brand new divers but we were assured that this wasn't really a "wreck dive" as it is an artificial reef set up for divers. Our guide kept a very close eye on us and only took us into areas with direct and easy exits so we never felt in any danger. We didn't see much in the way of sea life but it was a great intro to diving and really good practice for controlling our bouyancy and controlling our movements underwater. The second dive was a traditional reef dive and it was beautiful. No phenomenal sightings but a very nice dive. The staff was great and really did a great job. They used caution and ensured that we followed all rules including safety stops.

A guide was waiting as we exited our cruise ship, the Caribbean Princess, and walked us the few blocks to the dive shop. We were greeted by friendly staff who fitted us with wetsuits (shorties) and fins. We'd brought our own snorkels and masks but those were available as well. We had two guides for 7 passengers, which was perfect.
I hadn't been diving for about 5 years so it was reassuring that they double-checked all our equipment. The first dive was the USS Kittiwake, a bit of a disappointment since it has drifted on its side from the hurricanes but we were still able to swim through the ship. I loved our second reef dive--beautiful coral, a stingray, a sea turtle. And we made it back onboard on cruise ship by 2PM! Our guides were great, friendly and competent. Overall, a good experience.

My son recently did the 3-hour package dive of the USS Kittiwake and the reef with Divers Down. This was his first ocean dive having just been certified in 2017. The folks at Divers Down were phenomenal! They were really professional and good to work with -- they were knowledgeable and friendly and always helpful. The three on the boat on 22 March 2018 were Shannon (male), Kerry (female), and Terry (male...and I hope I got his name correct).

Just completed a 5 day dive package with Divers Down. I had dove with them three years ago and liked them so much I booked with them again not even looking to book with anyone else. The entire staff, Nicole, Barbara, Javier, Lee, Kerry, Louisa, Larita, Neil and several others (that I didn't get their names) were exceptionally friendly, knowledgeable and professional. The service that they provided, both in and out of the water, was without a doubt, the best one could ask for. The dive sites selected were fantastic, the boats were not over crowed and were in good shape. Will be diving with them again on the next trip back to the island.

We traveled during February 26- March 1, 2018 and did two days of diving. My brother in-law and I decided to do two, two tank dives in the morning. The day before our first dive we got a phone call telling us to show up 30 minutes later than the original time. This was great so we didn't have to rush through breakfast. We showed up on time and were greeted by the friendly staff working behind the counter. It took us a few minutes to fill out the paperwork and then we waited outside for a few more people to join our trip. The weather was beautiful so we didn't mind waiting around for a little bit watching the cruise ships empty and the passengers start walking the street.

Both days were a blast. We had Barbara and Javier as our guides and they did an amazing job. They made sure that our equipment was ready and in good working order before we set out on our tour. They explained everything that was expected of us out in the water, as well as in the boat. While we were in the water they kept a close eye on the group, but would allow you to go out an explore without the feeling that you were going to get lost or that you had to stay close.

Barbara and Javier were very knowledgeable about scuba diving and the different areas that we were exploring. We would highly recommend having Barbara and Javier as your tour guides.

The boat was clean and all the equipment worked well. We have scuba dived with Divers Down before a few years back and we will continue to use them in the future.

Thank you Barbara and Javier for a great trip!!
