Even with being a little nervous to dive for the first time I felt completely safe and comfortable under their supervision. If I had questions or needed to slow down with anything they were... More

We asked for a calm dive with the kids and we got it! Olivia took care of this stress free dive / snorkeling trip. Dive was a bit expensive (like a lot of things in Saint-Martin), but overall, great team, nice boat and awesome DM!

Olivia and her crew were awesome! She and her team made introductory to scuba diving a breeze for my 14, 12 and 9 year olds. We went by boat 10min out to a reserve where we got to see so many wonderful fish. She was particularly patient and kind with me...a 45 yr old who feels claustrophobic and panicky under... More

I planned on diving with Scuba Zen due to their proximity to my resort and because of the recommendations I received. I walked to their shop and was happy they suggested I do a recertification course. We covered the skills then dove a while . The next day I went on a 2 tank dive on a boat with them... More

This is an excellently run group of hardworking, friendly, helpful folks. This was our first trip to St. Martin and we weren't sure what to expect from the diving since our reason for being there was non-dive related. We were pleasantly surprised. We dove with both Scuba Zen on the north side and with another outfit on the south side.... More
