PADI International Dive Day at Aqua Action Dive Center 2018

PADI International Women's Dive Day

 
On July 21st, 2018 Aqua Action Dive Center was proud to host 
PADI Women's Dive Day Event.
 During this event, we took the Ocean Express out to Buck Island and completed a two tank dive. Our first site,  at Dive Flag Rock, we saw sharks, banded shrimp, lobster and more. Our second dive site, the ship wreck Cartanza Sr. was teeming with fish, sea urchins, and sea turtles! We ended this outstanding trip with a champagne toast and headed back in for the beach BBQ held on our white sand Secret Harbor Bay.
 
Back on shore we had 4 Discover Divers taking their first breaths under water with Instructor Rob! He took two groups out on shore dives after a quick refresher lesson and saw sting rays, arrow crabs, Sargent Majors, Parrot fish and more!
 
Big shout out to our grill master Aaron for cooking hamburgers and hot dogs for our group of snorkelers and divers. In honor of Women's Dive Day we gave out free snorkel rentals to anyone wanting to explore the bay from the top of the water.
 
Sunset Grille, our neighbor on the bay was kind enough to set up a bottomless mimosa, sangria, and bloody mary bar for all of our Women's Dive Day participants.
 
We ended a beautiful day out on the water and beach with a raffle for a Cressi snorkel set. Mask, snorkel and fins! Our winner sure was happy!
 
Thank you to everyone who took photos and allowed us to publish them! Our girl Squid took some stellar video of those sharks too!
 
We look forward to doing this again next year!

Thank You Hurricane Relief Workers!

                           Thank You Hurricane Relief Workers!

                       It has been 9 months since we got hit by 2 category 5 hurricanes in a matter of days of eachother. We have had a long recovery process and with that we have a very important group of people we would like to reach out and thank! All of those contracted through FEMA we appreciate the sacrifices you have made to leave home and spend months here on our little piece of paradise to help us rebuild our lives.

                    At Aqua Action Dive Center, we have been racking our brains trying to find a way to thank you all for everything, so we decided the best way to thank you all is by doing what we do best... let's go diving! 

                   We will work around your busy schedule to get you certified. If you already are a diver, consider yourself family and take advantage of our friends and family discount on continued education courses, dive trips, and Discover Dive courses.

Welcome 2018!



Happy New Year!  

While 2017 brought it's excitement and challenges (read: two category 5 hurricanes in 2 weeks in September for us here on St Thomas, USVI), we are very grateful to report that our business not only survived, but is getting back on it's feet.  We are open every day, and diving frequently!

We wish everyone, in the Caribbean and abroad, a prosperous and adventurous 2018!!
