Overview

At Ocean Explorers we believe that who you dive with is as important as the diving itself… Small groups, personalized attention and a relaxed atmosphere are what we offer on a daily basis. From outstanding reefs to fantastic wrecks, our waters are warm and inviting and the marine life abundant and friendly. Our Caribbean dive shop is located under the waving palms by this tranquil Kim Sha beach on the beautiful Caribbean island St. Maarten.

This is one of the most professional and helpful dive companies we have ever used. We very highly recommend them. We dove with them for 3 days this past week and enjoyed each dive.

This is a top 5 dive ever. I have over 200 recorded dives and this was incredible. Weather and water visibility was perfect. Got the opportunity to do 2 dives in a day.
