My wife and I just returned from our fourth trip to Statia and diving with Scubaqua. First, I need to tell you about all the things you are missing out on by going to Statia. 1) Loads of bars with loud, horrible music blasting at all hours of the night, and equally loud, drunken customers, staggering and puking their way...

We justed ended a fantastic two weeks diving holiday with Scubaqua at Statia. Scubaqua maintains a very high professional standard for dive-operations in all aspects: well maintained dive equipment and boats, an excellent enthousiatic team of dive-instructors guiding all dives (max 6 persons a group), an attractive location of the divecenter and a very high degree of customer service.

The staff, facilities, and of course the diving at Scubaqua in Statia were all phenomenal. The staff were extremely helpful with us as relatively new divers (doubling our logged dive count during our visit), and did a great job matching is up in groups that didn't leave us upsetting others or being left behind. Their rental equipment and valet services... More

My husband and I are professional photojournalists specializing in dive travel, and between us, we have traveled to some of the most exotic, far-flung dive destinations in the world and dived with hundreds of different operations. I have to say that Scubaqua ranks near/at the top. From the minute they picked us up at the airport until the evening we... More

We recently spent a week diving with Scubaqua Dive Center. The staff met our group at the airport and gave us a quick briefing of what to expect. (This was at 10:30p!) A few divers had luggage problems and Scubaqua's staff took care of getting their gear to them as soon as possible, even loaning gear for free until personal... More

Get a couple of Dutch and Swiss to manage, add some motivated French, Dutch, French Canadian & Belgian dive instructors and turn a historic warehouse into a Dive Center, couple this with some fantastic dive sites & wrecks in the Dutch Caribbean - et voila - U have a kick-bum diving operation.

My family and I are currently sailing around in the Caribbean Sea. Three of us did not have a diving licence and one already had one. Thus, we were looking for a diving center with great training skills and with access to wonderful diving sites. We found exactly that in St. Eustatius at Squbaqua Diving Center! The moment we arrived... More

Wow! I think we may have been ruined forever because all other dive operators will now be compared to this one! Scubaqua has thought of everything that a diver would want and need and even more that we didn't even know we needed or wanted! Plus the diving was amazing! The crew is one big happy family and we felt... More

Spent a week with Scubaqua in November. One of the best dive trips I've been on. We booked our hotel through them as well, and they took care of everything from the moment we landed, everything was incredibly easy. The diving is spectacular, but you're definitely going to want to have your Nitrox certification though to get the most out... More
