St. Maarten Introduction to Scuba Diving

A short scenic ride will bring you "just a bay away" from the cruise facilities in Philipsburg.

Adjacent to Great Bay is Little Bay, with generally calm and crystal clear waters. It is known as the island's best site for shore snorkeling and diving.

Your dive instructor(s) for the day will explain about the course?s procedure. Then each will get equipped with their full dive gear.

Once everything is in place, we will enter the water and for your safety, your instructor will accompany you to an initial depth of 5 feet and you can then descend to a maximum of 30 feet.

Marine life in Little Bay offers an abundance of starfish, angelfish, whole schools of yellowtail, ballyhoo, Murray eels, squid, stingrays, and occasionally sea turtles and octopus.
