The Dive Experience
Once you arrive on the dive boat, Barefoot, our professional PADI Instructors and Captain will be ready and waiting to take you to some of St. Thomas' most pristine reefs and historic wrecks. You can bring your own gear along or you can use ours.

If you choose to rent gear, you will make your gear selection when filling out our secure online booking form to ensure we have everything ready for you upon arrival. Either way our professional crew will set up your gear and assign you weight belts, masks and fins while you sit back and relax and enjoy the breathtaking boat ride to the first dive site. Once you arrive at our first dive site, you can expect a detailed and informative dive briefing. Under the water your PADI instructor will give you a guided tour of the reef or wreck that you will not soon forget.

Between dives, sit back and have a refreshing glass of iced water while your professional crew prepares your gear and gives you a briefing of the next dive site. After your second amazing dive don't worry about having to frantically disassemble your gear. Leave it to us and enjoy the scenery while we take you back to either your cruise ship or our dive shop.
