  • I had not gone diving for over 10 years and had several ear surgeries during this time. The staff at Cane Bay supplied me with gear (I had brought very little to St Croix) and we walked into the water...  more »

  • Had an OK experience, it wasn't particularly memorable or special.
  • Had a wonderful vacation at Carambola Resort with my wife and 2 daughters last week. One of the highlights of our time there was snorkeling right off the beach of the resort. We went to the Sweet Bottom Dive Shop and had a wonderful snorkeling lesson with Michelle. This was something completely new to us and Michelle was very patient and helpful in explaining the basics and taking us for a "test drive" in the Resort's pool. We then headed out to the beach and explored the amazing reefs teaming with beautiful marine life. The Sweet Bottom Shop owner, Mark, was absolutely wonderful and accommodating. He's a retired paramedic and even helped my wife with a water-in-the-ear issue. If there were 10 stars I would give them all to the Sweet Bottom Dive Center for being professional, passionate about sharing the amazing beauty of the ocean, and genuine kindness. Their prices are more than fair. In fact, the cost of $15 rental for mask, snorkel tube and fins for 24 hours is the best deal I found on the island during our wonderful stay. Do yourself a favor and check out the Sweet Bottom Dive Center!!!!
  • Although we didn't use Sweet Bottom this trip(but we will next time!), the gentleman there was kind enough to help us assemble our gear and haul it from the parking lot down to the entry point with the golf cart. He also gave us a nice brief on the dive site. Seems like a very reliable and professional shop! 5 thumbs up!
  • I can't say enough nice things about these folks. First of all they are true professionals who clearly love what they do. My wife and I were on a cruise and were only on the island for a few hours but we love diving and try to make it work whenever we get a chance. We got in touch with Mark by email and arranged to take the underwater naturalist course, he mailed us the books so when we arrived at the dive center we were ready and they were expecting us. Mark and Mike gave us the exam and we were in the water shortly for two beautiful dives. We even finished up in time for a couple of beers at the resort bar before heading back across the island. I'm already planning a return trip only this time I will be staying at the resort and diving with Sweet Bottom every day!
  • From all the staff we came into contact with, I can say they're awesome. I'm glad to have tried scuba diving & snorkeling for the first time, and look forward to doing more of it.
