we like to use Dive Adventures in simpson bay. you can book with them thru Aquamania.

we have used a bunch of other shops over the years. ocean encounters as mentioned above has a good reputation. they are also in simpson bay.

if you get a nice day with relatively calm seas a trip over towards st barts is fun. i thnk they call it moon hole? there are also some decesnt wreck sites. i am bad for names. caribe ? proselyte ?

the shallow dive near divi is usually a waste of time as is creole rock imho.

where will you be staying ?
Also used Dive Adventures. They were good to go.

Just ran across this thread. Will be in Sint Maarten first week of May and staying in Simpson Bay. Was going to go with Ocean Explorers as they are just down the road for 1 or 2 days. Is there an operation on the French side that could go to different dive sites?

I’ll be in port on a cruise on 5/12. Will most likely book 2 tank dive with dive adventures out of divi resort.

We ended up booking 5 days with SXM Divers. They have great reviews and a nice RIB that takes out smaller groups. We're not going until July 6th, but I'll let you know how it goes.
