Took a single, afternoon dive from Bubble Shop off Orient Bay in St. Martin. It was run very professionally and I felt very welcomed by Vincent. They did a very nice job of running a good trip out to Tintamarre Island and provided a wonderful guide for the dive. Because there isn't a dock, we did have to swim out... More

We booked a snorkeling trip to Tintamarre Island from Orient Beach. Checked out a Sea Turtle and several varieties of fish along the reef. Bring your snorkeling equipment if possible. The personnel were very helpful and friendly. You have to swim to the boat from the beach since there is no dock close by.

This was the first time my husband and I went scuba diving. We went with another couple who have scuba dived several times in the past, so they gave us some tips and things that would happen. They kept telling us, just remember to stay calm. The crew from the Bubble Shop were just awesome and very friendly. Adrien has... More

My experience snorkeling with the Bubble shop was good. I prefer to snorkel with a group of people. The trip I made I was the only snorkeler. Everyone else was diving. I enjoyed it but if I had known I would be the only one I think I would have waited till another time. I just mention this so that... More

Stopped by over the course of a few visits to outfit my family for snorkeling trips. The owner took a great deal of time to help me and was really smart about getting me sorted out. Excellent service, all the more particularly appreciated because I was such a newbie.

This snorkeling group was a great excursion for me and my 9 year old boy! We were taken to a nearby reef where we were able to see many different types of beautiful fish, sea urchins, and coral. The guides GiGi and company were extremely helpful and showed us many things. My child loved it so much he now wants... More

We had scheduled a Snorkeling Adventure with Bubble Shop and were pre-warned it was contingent upon weather. When we arrived - the winds were incredibly high creating a very rough chop to the sea. Our guide met us at the door with our deposit to be returned and was extremely apologetic that we were not going to be able to... More
