We love to take you diving from our boat or teach you from the beach....

We love to take you diving from our boat or teach you from the beach. Private dives and training allow us to focus just on YOU! Or dive Semi-Privately. Then you share the dive, boat, and our expert instructor, but never more than 6 divers. Then we do our best to balancing everyone’s needs based on Seas.

Struggling with that buoyancy thing? Let us share our expert knowledge on the Art of Diving. Take your diving to a new level with our expert instructor, Colette. 6800+ dives, 17+ years helping thousands comfortably dive St John and surrounds. New or experienced, we help you master that buoyancy thing safely and with ease. Together we'll match our motion to the ocean. Enjoy longer and better experiences with the sea life. Demonstrate you already got it, and we'll dive with you like Astaire danced with Rogers. Let us help you privately play your day away…

Back to St. John for our seventh time since 2010. Colette certified both my son and daughter a few years back. Dove again with her today as I wouldn't trust anyone else on the island to dive with. I've tried one of the others our first year down here, but it was a cattle-like experience. She takes time to ensure... More

We spent 4 days diving with Colette and 6 Paq. I was with my wife and 3 kids (ages 12,14, and 17). My 12 year old was finishing up his certification dives. Colette was very patient with the kids and it was really nice to have a private dive experience. We have dove with both low key and Cruz bay... More

Thank you Collette for making my first ever trip to St John & the BVI memorable with two excellent dives at Tobago, the Coral Gardens and the Cavern!

Diving 40 years and have never felt unsafe until diving with 6paq this week, and losing sleep over writing a negative review, but for safety reasons as soon as I was back on shore I started calling to rebook my second day with another dive group. Thankfully 6paq also cancelled the rest of the week because of engine problems, which... More

We truly regret that this diver felt unsafe and any of our actions that contributed to this feeling. We do our best to make sure that each outing is safe and we can get to the best sites available on any given day depending on seas, conditions and the experience levels on the boat. We do long briefings to augment... More

My son and I had one previous diving experience five years prior to connecting with Colette Diede of 6 Paq Scuba. All I can say is that the experience with Colette couldn't be better. I went with my son and son-in-law who had never dived previously. the 90 minutes Colette spent with us on land made me realize how unprepared... More

My husband and I are fairly new divers, 20 dives for each of us. We only get a chance to dive about twice a year so we are always looking for tips to improve our equalization, bottom time and buoyancy. Collette helped improve all 3! Our only expectation was to have a nice dive and look at sea life but... More

It was such a pleasure meeting you and fun to dive with you as well. For the not so rustically inclined, we also pick up at the nat'l park dock. But then we deal with all that congestion! Those trade-offs! Have a great weekend and thanks for the review. Guess its time for us to participate in these new electronic... More

On July 21 I went out with Colette for a private dive at Haulover South. My dive history involves trouble equalizing and I was upfront with her about that, and I was hoping to have another go at it after a long hiatus. She was up for the challenge.
