Chester is the owner/operator and Dive Master. He uses a small boat (see picture) and takes you where you want to go and does the dive you want to do. So if you want deep or long or Lionfish hunting or drift or a particular reef... tell Chester and he takes you. It is a small operation and he does... More

We had a great time diving with Chester. He’s a very knowledgable and professional dive master, and at the same time so friendly and laid back. We did 7 different dives with him, and they were all excellent. Lots of things to see at less than a 10 minutes boat ride away. Our dives included North and South Fairyland, and... More

Definitely recommend diving with Chester. Spearing Lion fish and feeding one to an eel was soooo cool. Playing with a Sea Horse was another highlight of a dive directly under the "Petite Piton". Beautiful hard and soft corals, loads of colorful fish, excellent visibility and, cant beat the scenery between dives. Awesome.!!!!

I have been diving all over the world, and I enjoyed diving with Chester very much indeed. The best diving on the island is right outside his shop, do tiny boat rides with a handful of easy going divers is the rule. I mentioned I like swim thrus, so the next dive we did Chester took me to a beautiful... More

Chester at the Action Adventure dive center put me and my wife through our open water PADI qualification and he was fantastic. Very clear instruction but in a relaxed style which made it great fun and allayed early nerves (especially me). Conditions were fantastic with clear water and interesting and varied dives from both the beach and boat, captained by... More

Had a great time diving with Chester! We picked him instead of one of the other dive companies on the island since we prefer diving in smaller groups. It ended up just being the two of us and Chester! The dive was fun. Chester speared lion fish and fed the smaller ones to the eels for us to watch. He... More

Chester was referred to us by the folks at Anse Chastenet. It was nice to see competitors working well together. I can't say enough good things about Chester and his crew. Chester was very helpful and accommodating. He gave us advice when we needed it, but also let us decide what we wanted our dive experience to be like. I... More

We had a scenic boat ride around Soufriere, St Lucia. Chester showed us the bat cave (I had been on a boat ride in St Lucia before - but was never shown this interesting site!). He then took us to a lovely and quiet beach where we snorkelled for a few hours. My young kids were able to see tropical... More

This was my first time diving in the ocean since I was certified in a lake in Michigan. Chester made me feel at ease immediately and my anxiety was gone. He showed us so much during our dives, we even held a seahorse and some type of Spanish starfish I think. We did 6 dives and loved every single one.... More

By the hummingbird resort on the beach you will find a little shack. Don't let the appearance fool you! This is a small dive shop and that's the beauty of it ! The single red boat means you will not be diving with more than 5 people. When you see the other dive operators on the sea, you'll be glad... More
