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

My husband and I went to St.Lucia for our honeymoon and he booked all of our activities. He may have forgotten to pack my booties, but he did great choosing this dive shop! While eating at our resort (Ladera- also amazing) we overheard the owner talking about the dive master Chester.. That was who my husband had booked our dive... More

If you are in or around Soufriere this is the guy to lead your dive. Short boat rides, Great Dives, limited number of divers and Chester works hard to make your dive pleasurable and exciting. Throughout the dive he was pointing out interesting sights that you may normally miss. Great fishcakes between dives!

My boyfriend and I dived with Chester on two separate days (two dives per day) in March 2016. He was absolutely brilliant and I thoroughly recommend diving with him. His knowledge of the fish and dive sites was great and he was very happy to share entertaining stories from his years of diving in St Lucia. He had a casual... More

Dove three days with AAD from 2/22-2/24 and enjoyed the time with Chester immensely. The first morning it was Chester and two other divers. The next day it was just Chester and one other diver, which was fantastic as I hate being in a "cattle boat" dive operation. Chester is just an overall nice, friendly person and has great eyes...
