We enjoyed Octopus Divers. They are located on the North end, French side.

Thanks for the heads up. I’ll check them out.

If you are on the Dutch side, near Phillipsburg, check out Scuba Fun Dive Center, web site - Their site claims they are the only 5 star instructor development dive resort on the island, I never checked it personally. The reviews I saw on them on were great, and since they were within walking distance of where I was staying, I did two morning dives with them every day for 5 days. They were the best that I have been diving with, but I have only been diving with two other charters, one of which I will probably never dive with again. I asked all kinds of questions before I booked since I was going without my buddy. Antoine and Elaine (possibly the owners?) were very patient and helpful in answering all my questions. The crew (Dave, Tony, Fab, and Frank) was great. I bought one of their shop t-shirts and had all of them sign the back as a souvenir. The boat we usually took could carry 24, but we usually had 14 or less, and one day there were only 5. But the groups were always less than 6 per dive leader. After I got home, Antoine sent me an email apologizing for not being in the shop to say goodbye when I left my last day.

Thanks for the headsup. Right part of town! Will only be there for a day (cruise) and looking for something close to port but don’t care for the cruise ship excursions. Will check them out!
