Had a great couple of dives this week. Good professional team- well managed kit, boat etc. and good briefings. I’d not dived for a few years (thanks to Covid cancellations)! So great to be back under the water again. Louis was very thorough with pre dive checks and took us to some good fish live off pillars of Hercules.
Definitely recommend. Thanks guys.

Leigh and Louis pull off that great trick of providing a fun and friendly environment whilst providing a completely safe and professional dive where everyone is fully aware of what is going on at all times. I dived the Pillars and Blackpoint sites which are easy reasonably shallow dives but with a ton of stuff to see, and in our case great visibility.
I didn't do any courses with DiveCarib, but Louis and Leigh would be excellent instructors and I'd highly recommend anyone wanting to do a course to go here.

Fantastic staff, very friendly, professional and great company. Highly recommended. Took a morning two dive with my two adult children on Saturday morning. Turned up to a friendly greeting and all kit ready. Leigh and his colleagues could not have been more helpful. Great kit and boat, clear instructions, oh and really good diving too. Ps. Finish off with lunch next door. You won't regret it.

My partner and I had 2 friends over visiting us for the holidays and we wanted to try diving while they were here. The team managed to squeeze us in on New Year’s Eve which was great! We exchanged a couple of emails when booking and sent all our details to them prior to arrival so when we arrived we only had a few things to sign and read through before getting started on the briefing. Really organised and ran smoothly.

I injured my knee a few days before so couldn’t actually dive on the day but I went on the boat with them and it was really enjoyable. None of the divers had dived before. Everyone felt so prepared and safe before they went in the water as Louis had so much knowledge and patience briefing the divers. All equipment was provided, there was plenty of water and juice on board the boat and a shower back at the office for after.

It was all around a great experience and the highlight of the trip for our friends. The divers were buzzing after it and are still talking about it now. We cannot wait to go back. Definitely recommend and big thanks to Louis and rest of the team.

Super accommodating for a last minute booking, easy process with quickly comms to confirm. Solid staff with professional dive prep/plan. Great couple of dives to 50ft around the Pillars of Hercules site. Would recommend DiveCarib!

Just finished my advanced open water diver course with these guys, and I could not have been more impressed with their knowledge and teaching ability. If you are in Antigua and looking to do some PADI courses or just to go on a fun dive in a beautiful location, this can't be beat.

My husband and I absolutely loved our experience with DiveCarib. I did 8 dives while in Antigua, and the guides, Louis and Leigh, were both phenomenal! Both very knowledgeable and experienced. The boat was nice and comfortable, and Trem and Burton (on the crew), were extremely helpful and kind.
My husband did his PADI open water dive certification through DiveCarib on our vacation, and had a wonderful experience. Louis was his instructor, and was fabulous. He was extremely professional and made the certification experience fun and rewarding. Thanks to Louis and DiveCarib!

Excellent dive shop, incredibly friendly staff, great dive sites, well priced. Would 10/10 recommend to anyone in Antigua. Easy to book, very accommodating and helpful.

Along with guided dives they took a large group out for discovery dives and have hooked my family on diving as well which is an added bonus.

Being a novice diver, Lee and his team were very patient with me and took excellent care of me. All of the equipment was in excellent operating condition and appeared to have been well maintained. The boat was cozy and elegantly designed to fit the 8 divers and diver master.
