Frank you are AMAZING!!! I was really nervous! I had a horrible experience in Aruba and ended up not actually doing it. So when my husband wanted to snuba in St. John I was not excited. Talking to Tammy was so wonderful on the phone! She is just so helpful! Then when I expressed my fear to Frank he was so understanding and absolutely wonderful! I did it! And I was so proud of myself! We can't wait to get back there and do it again! Plan on seeing us again in the near future! You guys are the best!

Thanks for the great snuba experience. I wanted an experience like scuba for my sons, one of which isn't old enough to scuba so we thought we would give snuba a try. We went snuba at St Thomas and had a wonderful time. The fish are so friendly and swam with us the whole time. Tammy does a great job explaining things and being patient with the younger kids. I would highly recommend snuba to everyone - VI SNUBA® is top notch! The boys said this was the highlight of their trip - THANKS AGAIN!

Becky Schulting
East Dubuque, IL

Thanks Frank for a spectacular experience. Your patience and relaxed manner put my children at ease. This positive experience will certainly be a building block for becoming SCUBA certified. We will definitely return and in the meantime we are telling anyone who will listen about your services. We left numerous positive comments at the Lime Inn for Tammy when we found out what a small world it really is. See you next time and good luck on the house.

We booked our SNUBA® experience so easily with Tammy and Frank. They were great with helping us plan everything since we were on a cruise with limited time in St. Thomas. Tammy was wonderful with us "snuba newbies". She made us feel comfortable, explaining everything so well and being really patient with us. It was so fun! Our girls LOVED it and so did we. The pictures Tammy took were great and really helped us remember our great time. This is an activity well worth doing and we HIGHLY recommend it with Frank and Tammy. Thank you!

L. Spears

What an excellent experience. Frank's professional and thorough pre-dive instruction set the tone for what was a great couple of hours. Having diving experience I was skeptical, having no diving experience Lex was quite nervous. But we both enjoyed ourselves and got a lot out of the dive. We would highly recommend Frank and Tammy's SNUBA® experience to anyone.

Miles & Lex
Chestertown, MD

Thanks Tammy for an amazing snuba experience! This was both of our first time, and we had a blast doing so. It was a great way to discover sea life, and thanks to your pictures we'll be able to remember this trip for years to come!

Liz & Mariusz
Nutley, NJ

Frank you truly rock! We never properly thanked you do to the mad dash to the ferry, so here it is... THANKS! The pictures are great, the memories are unbelievable, and we want to scuba now after your "snuba" introduction. You made Lori feel safe and relaxed, which made her whole trip. If you need any references email us and we will tell anyone how wonderful you are.

We chose St. Thomas for our "wedding-moon" and in addition to our beautiful ceremony, this SNUBA® trip was unforgettable!! Tammy is patient, and passionate. She makes sure you are comfortable before you leave shore. The whole experience was just amazing! We visited almost every beach on the Island and Coki Beach was the most beautiful to us!! I will be back to SNUBA® again!!

This was such a memorable experience and not ever having gone snuba before tammy was a great instructor. If i ever get the chance to go to st thomas again i will def be going to coral world to do this excursion again.

The dive was incredible! A real highlight from our honeymoon in St. Thomas. Thank you for your patience as we beginner and more mature folks got the hang of snuba! Mark and I will be back for a repeat dive for our anniversary!

Denise Hunt
Norman, Oklahoma

I want to thank Tammy for making our snuba trip the highlight of our vacation trip and for being so patient & laid back. We were the only customers for her that morning and she took the time to make sure we were comfortable for our 1st snuba experience. Once we got started on our adventure it was the most amazing experience that still brings a smile to our faces when we talk about it to our friends. Definitely worth every penny and we will certainly be doing this again when we come back. Hopefully our next adventure will be on St. John. Thanks again for everything Tammy!

Thanks Frank for a really awesome time! I didn't know how to swim and was terrified about snuba diving but you really took your time with me and showed a genuine interest in making me feel really relaxed and I really appreciate that. I had the time of my life! P.S. post pics soon and I will definitely be back.

Washington, DC

Thanks to Frank and Tammy for a wonderful experience! Frank's patience with Melissa at Coki was amazing, and she really was able to experience the undersea world she loves! Look forward to seeing you when we make it to St. John!

Thank you so much for the experience of a lifetime. We had a lot of fun and because I was scared it was nice that you walked me through it so I got over my fear.

Wow. How fun was that! Frank, we appreciate your coaching to make the boys feel comfortable with SNUBA®. What a great excursion and a fabulous afternoon on Trunk Bay! We hope to do this again. Thanks for taking the great pics! I think we have a Christmas card. :)

This was our 4th time, over the span of 17 years, enjoying the SNUBA® experience with you on St. John! Thank you for once again offering a wonderful way to fully appreciate the beauty and diversity of the sea. Excellent pictures! My daughter, son-in-law and myself had a great dive!

Dan Trittin
Waterford, WI

What a great experience! We arrived by cruise line to St. Thomas on a very rainy day, all cruise excursions were cancelled. We called Frank and Tammy and they assured us the weather was passing and the dive was on.They were spot on, the snuba experience was fantastic, snorkeling will never suffice after staying down and swimming with the fish and studying the coral up close. The training was professional and built confidence. Thank God for Internet booking!

Frank was awesome! Thank you so much for your patience and for the wonderful experience. We had a great time.

SNUBA® was the highlight of our honeymoon!

Metuchen, NJ

Frank, both my girlfriend wanted to take the time and say how grateful we were for how wonderful you made our excursion. My girlfriend was really nervous about going under, and with just the way Frank talked to us and his unyielding patience ( his patience is unreal ) my girlfriend felt more than comfortable to go under. Between the pictures the experience, and Frank we without a doubt would do it again and recommend it to anyone.
Thank you again

We just wanted to thank you again for everything. We really appreciated you accommodating us when we ran late. That was very nice of you!!! You were so great helping us learn the basics and the dive was so awesome. Also, the pictures you took were great. We had an amazing time and if we head that way again will definitely do it again!! Thank you!!

Frank, I just wanted to drop you a line and tell you how much Teresa and I enjoyed our snuba adventure on Saturday, March 20th. As you may recall, Teresa was as nervous as a cat but your patience and expert instruction put her at ease. She cannot stop telling her friends about the experience. We will tell everyone we know that they cannot go to the U.S.V.I. without seeing you. We will see you again.

This was terrific! I am 60 and was a little hesitant but this was on
my to do list so I did it! And will do it again!! Don't let your age
deter you. Directions are easy and Tammy was extremely patient
with me and had really helpful suggestions. I like that the group
was small as I did not feel I was holding anyone back.
This was a multi-generational vacation and my brother went with
me. He was even more apprehensive than I was, but he made it and
said he will go again!. Just looked at our pictures, they are
hysterical! I look like I am trying to fly!!!!! Thanks to Tammy for
her limitless patient and kindness. Best experience on the Island!!!

Hamilton, Ohio

Thank you Tammy for a great experience!

The amazing SNUBA® dive was the highlight of our trip to St. Thomas.

We will definitely SNUBA® again every time we visit the Island.

Michael & Goldie
Brooklyn, NY

Thanks for Frank and Tammy. You are so nice that we can understand the basics easily. So it makes easier for us to dive in the water. Although we still have a little bit afraid under the water, Frank is together with us with hand to hand, making us feel more safe. We enjoy the fantastic experience in the ocean,with lots of beautiful and amazing fishes. Also It makes us see much more beautiful world. Thanks again to Frank and Tammy.

Dear Frank,
Thank you for a great time! You were very quick to figure out I was the one freaking out initially and you came to my rescue and made sure I was a.o.k.!!!! Before I knew it we were moving on down. What a great experience, I felt empowered that I overcame that fear and it was because of you and your patience and your kind way of teaching. Adam, Emily, Katherine and Mark thank you for getting me to experience SNUBA, they enjoyed every minute of it as did I and were proud that I managed to do it without fear. This experience was a highlight of our trip to St John and the photos are fabulous!! Many thanks!! The Hoffman Family, Norwell Massachusetts USA

Frank and Tammy,

Our SNUBA® experience was definitely the highlight of our trip to Saint Thomas. We were fortunate to be able to get input from both of you; first with Frank instructing us with the basics, then with Tammy in the water at Coki Beach. I was so impressed with your patience with my daughter and your insistence that all of us were comfortable in the water before we left the beach. What a wonderful family experience, backed up with the terrific pictures Tammy took.

Just booked our second trip with you guys, the first was a blast and was more than we expected, your overview and instructions before we hit the water made our little ones feel very comfortable with "getting wet", the water clarity and life was unbelievable, and after we finished our 8 yr old had a ton of fun swimming with your daughter at the beach.

thanks again and look forward to seeing you in march

bob,diane,bridie & jade bryant

Thank you so much Tammy! The dive was AWESOME!! I will definitely do this again with VI SNUBA®. I had the best time and Tammy was great and patient. My husband and I took the St. Thomas dive, we loved it! There is a whole another world that was just waiting to be discovered. I'm still amazed. Everyone has to try this!! This is an experience that I will never forget! Again, thanks so much Tammy, you will definitely see us in the near future!


Thanks, Tammy. Great smile and patient instruction made for a memorable underwater adventure.

Bob and Donna Klaput
Ford City, PA

SNUBA at Coki Beach was a wonderful experience. The beach itself is beautiful, and was the perfect place to spend the rest of the day! Tammy was an excellent instructor, and we quickly learned the processes necessary for the SNUBA experience. Thank you Tammy for a memorable experience! When we return to St. Thomas, we will certainly see what it's like to SNUBA at St. John. We would've loved to try it on this visit, but ran out of time unfortunately. It is definitely superior to snorkeling and Tammy took wonderful photos to help us always remember our experience. I was never a fan of going into the ocean because of the uncertainty of what lay below the surface, but the crystal-clear water and relaxing atmosphere made Coki Beach a spot we must return to for fun and relaxation. I could've spent all day in the water! Exploring the area with Tammy helped ease my mind as to the unknown surroundings, and I felt a level of comfort in the ocean that I've never before experienced. We never would have made it there if we hadn't booked this experience of a lifetime, and can't wait to do it again on our next visit! Our thanks to both Tammy and Frank and best wishes for the future.

John and Dara
Raleigh, NC

If you are even considering trying SNUBA...Do it! It was awesome! Tammy was a very patient teacher. We were so fortunate that it was only the 4 of us in our group (only 6 normally anyway). Lots of personal attention. You WILL NOT get this professional and personal attention through the ships excursions! We can guarantee it! We saw beautiful fish and coral in St. Thomas even though the previous day it had rainstorms and the water was a little stirred up. Go, book it now, do this! You will never forget it!
Thanks Tammy! It took us 2 years to finally do it and it was worth the wait! :)

Thank you so much for a wonderful time! Frank was awesome! My husband had a tough time at first, but thanks to Frank taking his time and working with him, he was able to enjoy the wonders that God created! This is one adventure we would definitely do again. Thank you for your patience and the opportunity to experience your world. Your are as amazing as the experience.

Barb & Skip Anderson
Holly Ridge, NC.

Tammy was the greatest! After instructing us with all the details to snuba, my family had the best experience together for our vacation to St. Thomas. I feel sorry for those who just lay on the sand. There's another paradise under the water you don't see unless you do this. It's important to remember that families who play together stay together.

The Silies Family

We had a great time with Tammy on our St. Thomas dive! She made the SNUBA experience fun and easy. I'm a SCUBA diver but my husband is not. This was the perfect way for us to enjoy diving together!

Judy Boch
Goodyear, Arizona

I'd SNUBA every weekend if I could. I have done it twice in 10 years now and I couldn't wait to show my friends how much fun it is. They all enjoyed it immensely. My fiance is a diver and even he admitted it was really cool. Instruction is minimal with just a few things to remember. The important thing is to relax. Once under the water EVERYBODY loves it. The highlight this time was seeing a beautiful sea turtle which Tammy took wonderful photos of. Her photos are a very memorable part of our wonderful wedding trip to St. Thomas. SNUBA . . . . . priceless!!

Denise Kleffman, Alan Findlay, Trish & Lynn Marcussen
Los Angeles, CA

Thanks again, Tammy! I did SNUBA 10 years ago with you and now I've done it again. It is so much fun I'd do it over and over if I could. Alan is a diver and even he thought it was great. Seeing the sea turtle swimming was the ultimate! Can't wait for the photos - they are so worth it!

The VI SNUBA experience was awesome! Frank's easy going style and professionalism made me feel relaxed and confident. Before arriving I was hesitant and unsure; to my surprise, I enjoyed it so much, I immediately went out again with the next group! It was without a doubt the highlight of a wonderful seven-day cruise. We will definitely be back again for more SNUBA.

Rosario Wilke
Aguadilla, PR

We had the most amazing time on our trip thanks to Tammy! Everyone in our group agreed that the SNUBA® we did through VI SNUBA® Excursions was the best decision any of us made on this trip. It was a wonderful experience, Tammy made us all really comfortable in the water with our gear and everything! We walked right off of Coki Beach and into the deep blue with Tammy as our guide and it was well worth it! Thank you so much!


This was by far our favorite activity on our whole vacation, and we snuba-ed on the last day of our cruise. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our snuba experience. Thank you, Frank, for being such a patient, encouraging instructor. I'll have to admit, I was a little nervous at first. But it didn't take too long to finally relax and really enjoy the beauty of the marine life. Even with my cold and not being able to go as deep in the water as I wanted, it was so worth it. I hope we'll be back some day!!!

Madison, WI

SNUBA® was amazing. It's easier than scuba and just about as good and you don't swallow water like you do with most snorkel gear. We liked it so much we went twice.

Dear Tammy & Family:

Happy New Year Tammy! May this year bring you and your family much much health, prosperity and guys deserve this and more. You need to know we had the best time with you! Thank you so much for your guidance and patience!!! Next time I hope to go under and catch up with Ricardo }) he did great. Loved the pics and every minute of this 'must do' wonderful experience! Did I mentioned we would like very much to do it again and again...and again. If you are ever in these waters please contact us, we would love to hear from you. Hope to see you soon. Saludos & lots of love from Miami, Maria & Ricardo

The snuba experience was the highlight of our trip. The boys both wanted to do it again. They are hooked. You walked 4 novices through the process and made us all feel comfortable.

I would personally like to thank Frank and Kaitlyn. Tammy, I only know you by phone but you sound delightful. I thank Frank due to his calm and professional demeanor. My mother-in-law & one of my daughters were quite apprehensive about SNUBA®-ing. With Frank's expertise, confidence and overall sense of calm, we ALL enjoyed what was easily the highlight of our trip. I bring up Kaitlyn, Frank and Tammy's daughter because we had the true pleasure of her company when Frank delivered the T shirts to the villa where we were staying. She is a wonderful young lady who a delight to have around. Go SNUBA®-ing.....YOU WILL REMEMBER IT FOR THE REST OF YOUR LIFE!!! Thanks guys. Jim, Ev, Eliana & Abigail.

I was in charge of extra activities for our trip and thought SNUBA would give family/friends an exciting adventure UNDER the water...had a few folks a little nervous about my selection for the day's activity! However, the excellent preparation and instruction given before the event helped those in our group to muster up the courage to give it a, when I ask what was the best thing they remember about our trip to St. Thomas and they mention SNUBA....guess they will keep letting me pick the adventures in the future!

Barbara Ford
Asheville, NC

Frank was awesome! He took his time to make sure everyone was going to be safe. Keeping the groups small ensures that everyone will have plenty of individual attention. The dive was incredible!

Rick and Gail Dees
Billings, Montana

Even though I didn't do the snuba, my husband and two children (ages 11 & 8) had a wonderful experience. It was the highlight of my son's vacation!! I think we may have a diver on our hands.

Thank you so much for your patience and for the wonderful experience. We will be back!

SNUBA® Frank....what a great time. Always wanted to try scuba diving but was always hesitant about how everything worked. Frank made this experience easy and fun. If I had known how much fun this was I would have booked another dive instead of the snorkel/sail trip.

Greg Godfryt
Appleton, WI.

My son and I just wanted to thank Tammy for the fantastic SNUBA experience. Had we known it was going to be that much fun, we would have scheduled another dive for the same day! When we return(no question about it!) we'll be sure to make our reservations for another great time. We want to thank you for enabling us to experience something that we will never forget.

Marty Teramani
Freeland, MD

Dear Frank,

Thank you so much for our great SNUBA® experience! My partner and I had a blast. You're a really, really good teacher, and we felt safe at all times. (And we were so lucky to have you to ourselves!) Neither of us was ever interested in Scuba diving certification, but after our SNUBA® session, we're thinking about it. Wish you could be our instructor!

Best wishes,

New England



We had a great time SNUBAing! You were a great instructor and were VERY patient. Thanks for the great memories!!!

Ann & Eric
Greensburg, PA

Thank you Tammy for a great time. I was nervous at first as I had never snorkeled, scuba or snuba before but appreciated your patience. I could tell you really wanted everyone to enjoy themselves and took the time to educate us. I ended up staying near the surface anyway but because of that, got the chance to see some BEAUTIFUL purple jellyfish that weren't down below!! Worked out great!!!

Lima, Ohio

Thank you for a fabulous experience! I am an avid scuba diver and can't wait until my son, age 10, will be ready to scuba, too. Although he is a great at snorkeling, he is somewhat cautious and didn't think he was ready to learn scuba for our April vacation to St. Thomas. When I suggested snuba, he was all for it. He was a little nervous at first, but once he learned what to do, he was a natural. The thing that was worrying him the most was "How do you go down?" so once he realized how easy it was, he was fine. He gets a kick out of telling people that "he pulled the raft", which Tammy said was pretty typical for kids. I suspect he'll still be into snuba when he learns that scuba diving requires actual - you know - "book"work!! Anyway, Tammy, THANK-YOU for making his intro into real underwater adventure so easy and FUN! You are a great instructor and really make him feel comfortable! Thanks!!!

Heidi & Christian Langendoen-Hannabury
Wakefield, MA

What fun! Thank you so much Frank - my family and I enjoyed our SNUBA® experience so much...quite possibly the most fun we had on our entire vacation. Thank you for being patient; I know we are a noisy bunch, but we loved it and you were so patient. I got to see things for myself that I thought I would only see on the pages of a National Geographic magazine. Hope to see you, your wife and daughter again.

Thanks again!

Hannah Palmer
West Plains, MO

Woooo Hooooo!!!! What a rush!

I have to say, Frank, you have the patience of a saint! To those reading this, I am claustrophobic and do not know how to swim. My boyfriend surprised me with the trip AND with the snuba excursion. I was VERY leery about this whole thing, but Frank was awesome. Funny when he needed to be funny, serious when he needed to be serious and very calming. He even handled my panic attack without it interfering with anyone else's snuba experience. Thank you Frank for one of the best experiences of my life so far, well, second to getting engaged on a moonlit beach the last night we were there! :)

We'll be back for our honeymoon and hopefully more snuba'ing!

My son was looking forward to this for many weeks after I showed him the web site and explained what we would be doing. We arrived at the site in plenty of time and Frank greeted us and was really cool. You can tell that he loves what he does and he and Tammy really do a great job. After a brief orientation, Frank fitted us for our gear and led us to the water. We experimented with the gear in waist deep water. Frank had us get comfortable with the underwater breathing and showed us how to sink ourselves and make sure our ears were getting the needed attention. It was finally time to head on to deeper waters.

I was amazed at how easy this whole thing was. It was great and we could not believe that we were able to go down 20 feet and stay down for nearly an hour as Frank led us on a tour of the reefs in the area. We saw some amazing fish and other things.

Before you knew it, our time was up and were back on shore.

This was a great experience and much easier than expected.

Weston, FL

At first, my 9-year old daughter was a bit uneasy for this adventure. The first day of snorkeling on the islands is usually frustrating to her. However, Frank was just so calm, cool and collected and SIMPLY AWESOME INSTRUCTOR. (Even for grown- up kids...LOL). We both were nervous about going too deep and he was very patient teaching us. Frank is the world's foremost authority in SNUBA® and it is easy to see why. Before we knew it we were about 20 feet underwater having fun. WHAT AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE! In fact it was so fun, when we were leaving on the plane to come home my daughter said to me:
Daddy, next time we go to the islands can we just do SNUBA® two or three times a day? LOL!!! THANKS SO MUCH FRANK! This was a memory to last a lifetime...until we do SNUBA® with you again!
Also special thanks to Tammy for helping dad to get the t-shirt size right for my daughter. Super Kudos to you both! YOU ARE THE BEST!

Tammy made our snuba experience the best it could be- she explained everything prior to the dive and reviewed the important stuff in the water.  I was very nervous at first and thought I might chicken out but Tammy talked us through it all and made it seem easy.  Our whole family-     including 4 kids from 8-16 enjoyed the experience which was surprising since two of the four said they were not going to do it right up until we did it.  Thanks again Tammy- it was great.

Lisa Southwick
Raleigh NC

Thank you Tammy for sharing this wonderful experience with us! It was nice to have you all to ourselves at Coki Beach, it was a great family activity and the kids really enjoyed it. I never thought I would enjoy it so much,it's my hubby who's the water baby, but we all would have stayed there for another hour if we could! It was so relaxing and amazing down there, I envy you for doing this on a regular basis! Thank you again for making this experience one of the best part of our cruise!

Luc and Nadia Cleroux
Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

I just wanted to say that James and I had a WONDERFUL time doing snuba, it was the highlight of our entire vacation!  Frank was our guide, and we just happened to be the only two people doing the tour that day.  He was super knowledgeable (of course) and taught us both a few new tricks on how to equalize your ear pressure.  He also was nice enough to keep us in the water for an extra 10 minutes or so, just because we were having so much fun!  He also took some great shots of us underwater from our dive at Coki Beach on 12/15/07. Thanks for helping to make our honeymoon so much fun!

San Diego, CA

On Dec 03, 2007 I, my wife and our friends Brian & Lucy and Dave & Ida Mae went to Trunk Bay, St John, USVI for a new experience, SNUBA.
Let me tell you, in the beginning we all had some apprehension about what we were getting into. But after Frank explained it all to us and then the practice in the shallow water of the beach we all felt comfortable.
We had great times at other places but this was the highlight experience for our 14 day cruise for all six of us!!
What an exhilarating experience! It was so much fun and we all can't wait to do it again.
I highly recommend this SNUBA experience to everyone.
Thank you Frank for an absolutely fun fun fun time!!

Alan & Regina Bragg

Thank you Tammy for an INCREDIBLE SNUBA® time! It was absolutely amazing! I was a bit apprehensive at first but with your patience and great teaching skills, I feel like I mastered SNUBA® and am ready to go again! My husband and I wanted to Thank You for the great tour and the wonderful pictures! I definitely would recommend this as a MUST-DO when on St. Thomas or St. John islands.

Amy Olivarez
Austin, Texas

I can't wait to get our pictures.  I'm a certified scuba diver, but I hadn't dove in 20 years.  My husband had only snorkeled.  Tammy really spent extra time with him getting him comfortable breathing.  Once he felt comfortable, we went on our adventure.  The fish were absolutely beautiful.  After the dive with Tammy, my husband is ready to get certified and I'm ready to get a refresher course.  We had so much fun and we also enjoyed Tammy's daughter.  She was a big help in getting our gear for us and she dove with us that day. 

Thanks Tammy for making part of our honeymoon extra special and something we will never forget.

Melanie & Jeff Shealy,
Irmo, SC

Thank you Tammy and VISNUBA!! I am a certified diver and my wife is not. Tammy spent the time necessary so that my wife Jill felt totally comfortable in the water and with the safety procedures. We had a wonderful dive that lasted a good 35-40 minutes. Saw many of your typical Caribbean reef fish, Soldiers, grunts, snappers, tags and damsels. Most importantly, my wife was able to experience a sample of diving. She now has a better understanding of why I love to dive!!

I recommend VISNUBA to anyone considering taking snorkeling to the next level. Jill isn't ready to go get certified open water diver but she will do SNUBA again!! :)

Thanks again and see you next trip to St. Thomas!

Hi Frank and Kaitlyn,

Just wanted to write and say Thank you again for the awesome time we had SNUBA® diving.  I wasn't sure I was going to be able to do this but by watching your little mermaid make it look so much fun & easy I just could not pass it up.  Curt and I had a great time and he wants to thank you for your patience and giving me the confidence it took for me to dive. Can't wait to get back to St John. We will be looking you up for another dive trip. 

Curt and Lois Ruhl
San Rafael, Ca

Doreen and I had a wonderful time on our SNUBA adventure. Tammy is an excellent instructor and her adherence to safety gave us both a sense of relaxation and confidence. This is an experience that should not be missed. We did the St. John beach and it was just gorgeous. The only thing I can possibly complain about is that we never wanted it to end. The sense of being part of the ocean as you breathe underwater is so relaxing and captivating, you just want it to continue forever. Other than that, it was perfect.

Dave and Doreen Lubin

Tammy, thanks so much for a wonderful time. We really enjoyed ourselves. And we just loved having Kaitlyn there too. She'll be running the place in no time! :)

This was the most wonderful time for us...I was very hesitant about this "SNUBA" thing but....oh my gosh!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Your experience and patience was worth its' weight in gold! Your "little one horned fish" was quite a swimmer and "knew all the answers"!! What a delight!!! Thanks again sooooooooooo much

My daughter and I had an awesome experience. Your expertise gave us such confidence and made the entire dive an unbelievable experience, one that we will never forget. It was the highlight of our St. John's vacation. Thank you for giving us a lasting memory.

Maureen & Emily Lipton
Mineola, New York

We had a great time and can not wait to go again. It gave us a taste of what scuba diving would be like. Tammy was a great instructor and we love the pictures. We were on a cruise and we are really glad that we booked this outside of the normal cruise tours. We had plenty of time and did not feel rushed at all. Can't wait to go back. Thanks for a experience we will remember the rest of our lives.

AMAZING EXPERIENCE!!! I have to say that our snuba trip on St. Thomas was the highlight of our entire vacation. Tammy was wonderful, helpful, supportive - and the dive was easy, beautiful --- we even saw a barracuda! So many fish, beautiful coral. I'd highly recommend this to anyone traveling to St. Thomas. WELL worth it, an experience that you will never, EVER forget!!!

I wanted to take a moment and write you a personal thank you note. This was the first vacation Shaneen and I were able to take in 4.5 years since she started work on her PhD. This vacation was in celebration of the completion of a life long dream of hers. The SNUBA experience put an exclamation point on what was nothing less than an awe-striking week in St. Thomas and St. John.

I was extremely impressed and thus pleased with the amount of patience and kindness you showed while teaching us how to breathe compressed air. Shaneen isn't very accustomed to being in deep water and so I was a bit nervous about how she would do. Your instructions were perfect and you calmed every nervous thought she may have had. For this I sincerely thank you.

The SNUBA experience is one I will highly recommend to all of my friends and family who will visit the US Virgin Islands. You truly made our vacation one we will never forget!


Kaitlyn, our "smarter than the average bear" co-instructor! Thank you also for reminding us to remember to breathe on the way up! A sign language "F" will always mean "OK" to us now!

I just wanted to take the time to say a very special thank you for all your help on our SNUBA® experience on 7/25 in St. John. The two teenage boys caught on to what Frank was saying immediately, but me, the 45 year old landlubber needed a little extra special attention, which Frank cheerfully provided. All three of us had the experience of a lifetime, and we will treasure it always. I know that Taylor and Brett thoroughly enjoyed it, and I am sure that they will want to get certified the next time we are at the ocean. I really thank you for broadening their horizons, and teaching them to appreciate the underwater life that we saw. I did have one question, Frank pointed out a living thing that was attached to the coral, it looked like an anemone, but when you got too close to it, it sucked itself into a straw like form.

I love the pics that Frank took, what a great memento of our afternoon in St. John!

Again, many thanks, Bunnie Bowen

Thank You!!!
WOW..we are are still sailing (or should I say high on our SNUBA® experience!! This is one adventure we will never forgot. Frank was the most patient person I've ever met! I have not been able to stop talking about how much fun it was. I can now understand why people become certified divers. The fish were beautiful and it was extremely peaceful under the water. I'm ready to hop on another cruise and come back just to SNUBA®! Frank, we just can't thank you enough!

Tammy is wonderful. I was going to back out of our trip and just have my husband and three children go while I waited behind. But because Tammy was so reassuring I tagged along. I thought I would just float along the surface while everyone else explored the bottom, but guess what? I ended up on the bottom too! (unfortunately my son stayed near the surface as he has ear problems) It was great, and I am so glad I went along!

Tammy, Thanks for a memorable experience, Devon and I had such a grand time, with all of your instructions and helpful tips, cleaning the mask, we were so thrilled to finally go down. Can't wait till we can return for our next experience. Nothing can compare to our St Thomas dive it was certainly the highlight of our cruise.

Hi Frank & Caitlin, We wanted to let you know that we had an incredible time on the dive at St.John 6-12-06. Frank was extraordinary patient with me. I really wanted to do this but got nervous and didn't think I could go through with it,but you really made me feel totally comfortable. It was by far the highlight of our travels and one we will never forget. We recommend it highly to everyone. It was an AWESOME dive swimming with the fish. Thanks again for your patience and see you next time.

Thanks for the wonderful snuba diving session!

My husband truly enjoys snorkeling/diving. And I like to spend time with him when he finally gets a chance to relax and do what he wants to do for a change. Unfortunately, I've had a few unpleasant snorkeling/diving experiences recently that have made me begin to dread going out snorkeling/diving when the opportunity presented itself.

Under your guidance felt absolutely safe. I began to feel secure in the knowledge that I could take care of myself underwater. I think knowledge is the difference between those who dive with joy, those who dive with trepidation, and those who do not dive!

I had so much fun with our group! If you and your wife offer dive lessons…I’m all over that!

Thanks a million!

Our family joined Frank in StThomas for the SNUBA® tour on June 13, 2006. We had a fantastic time and it was the highlight of our caribbean cruise! Frank is so patient and very safety conscious that we all felt comfortable with this adventure. My son is enrolled in a scuba diving course after his adventure with snuba. A great time! Thanks for everything Frank!

This was great. It was really easy for people who had never scuba dived before. Definitely recommend it!

My daughter Kimberly and I had a great time with Tammy at Trunk Bay. It was a great way to introduce Kimberly to scuba diving, in an unthreatening way. I have gone scuba diving before and if I didn't know that I had a hose connected to me, I wouldn't have known the difference.

Frank, we had a wonderful time!!! I am very happy that the boys chose to make this trip to St. John. This was an absolutely amazing trip and especially the snuba. The snuba shirts are great, and we greatly appreciated them. We wore them on the plane, and answered a lot of questions about what snuba is. We recommended you to everyone!! There could never be a bad trip with you in the lead! I hope that we will be back soon. The boys are greatly interested in seeing the completed tower! You are a remarkable patient man, and instructor!
Thanks again for making this trip wonderful!!!!

Frank,Thanks for such a great experience with snuba in st. thomas. i really enjoyed snuba. At first it was kinda hard to get used to breathing underwater but you were able to help me. I enjoyed snuba so much me and my friend want to take up scuba because of how much fun we had. I hope in the future to be able to do snuba with you again.

Matt Rothwell

We had an awesome time underwater. We even enjoyed the chat we got to have while waiting out the rain. We want to do it again, but without all of the drinking the night before( not sure what we were thinking). You do a great job of instilling confidence in those who are not so sure about what they're getting into. We hope that your tree burn is better. There was a good reason why that road was less traveled. Thanks again Frank for the great time, it will be even better next time now that I know what to expect.

Scott and Tara Smith
North Little Rock, AR

Frank, we just wanted to thank you once again for a wonderful day in the water. It was amazing to my children that such a different world exists under the water and that they could be a part of it for a little while. Your patience and teaching was invaluable, and we will definitely sing your praises to anyone else we know that is headed your way. Thanks for an experience that we will never forget and for giving us the highlight of our cruise(The next time, I think we will just spend our week in St.Thomas!).

Jared Carson

Thank you so much Tammy for the highlight of our trip. People ask how our vacation was and the first thing out of my mouth is SNUBA®, my wife and I really had a wonderful time. We will definitely be in touch when myself, my wife, and my son return to St. John. Thanks again.

Jeremy Stafford

Hey Frank! Just a note to let you know what an amazing time we had on our dive in St. Thomas last week. It was incredible!! Sam really enjoyed it and wasn't at all afraid. Thanks for taking the time to walk us through the steps and make sure we were all comfortable before moving ahead.

This was such an awesome experience and we couldn't have asked for a better guide. We are so happy we didn't miss it! We'll definitely see you again.

Colleen, Richie & Sam
Colleen Hitchell

This was the most fun we had during our cruise. I am a diver but my husband never had the opportunity to learn. He was very nervous about breathing under water but Frank took the time to explain everything and made my husband very comfortable. Barry had so much fun that he tells everyone he can about it. I cannot express in words how happy I am with Frank and VISNUBA®. If we ever get back to St. Thomas, we will definitely be calling on them. In the meantime I HIGHLY recommend this experience to anyone who has ever thought about trying it. Absolutely Amazing! Thank you Frank for the life changing experience.

Nancy Robinson
Surrey, BC Canada

Hi Frank,just wanted to check and make sure the bruises have left your hand after my snuba experience. This was the highlight of my trip, and I will never forget it. My friends at home could not believe that I actually put my head underwater let alone did the snuba. I am a bit claustrophobic and not the best swimmer and you managed to relax me and keep me from losing it. I have visions of you still being so relaxed when I was panicking and you would just hold up those fingers and make me count, which always calmed me down and let me enjoy the beautiful underwater city of fabulous fish and coral. For anyone that is apprehensive I would highly recommend Frank, he may seem very laid back yet instantly he instills trust and your fears start to dissipate. He is very professional and I would put my life in his hands again...not sure he would take mine again as I probably squeezed his fingers off. We called when we arrived from our Cruise ship and this was much better t!
than any excursion offered on the ship. This is a MUST DO experience! We will look you up next time we visit Frank, hopefully I will not have to hold your hand, this will be easier on you...giggles. Take care and many thanks. Tanya

Thank you Tammy,
SNUBA was such a wonderful experience. Seeing the wonder of what lies beneath the water's surface was thrilling. It has always been a secret ambition of mine to learn to SCUBA, but I was nervous/doubtful about my ability to do so. Tammy was such a calm and reassuring instructor-- she made such a success of me-- that I am now completely confident that I will be able. Thanks again Tammy for a fabulous unforgettable morning.

Katherine Peterson
Elkridge, MD

Thank you Tammy! My partner and I had a wonderful time! We appreciate the time you took to show us how to breathe and maneuver while in the water. The pictures that you took were great as was the location on St John. We will definitely recommend you to our friends and family!!!

Thanks Tammy for making our SNUBA® experience one to remember. Exploring the underwater world of St. John with you was a highlight of our time in the USVI! We thoroughly enjoyed and don't understand why you're not booked solid! People just don't know what they're missing by not trying snuba out. The stingray was especially cool! Good luck, we'll definitely spread the word!

Thank you so much for one of the most exciting experiences of our lives! You were very patient teaching us to SNUBA and the outcome was far better than we ever expected. We cannot recommend you highly enough. We encourage anybody visiting St. Thomas either as a vacation destination or on a cruise ship to get themselves to Coki Beach and SNUBA with you!
We hope to see you soon and bring our children along this time. We know they will love it as much as we did!

I just want to say a HUGE THANK YOU to Tammy. Sara and I had the best time. It was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. We had so much fun seeing everything the coral, schools of fish swimming by. We both loved it and can't wait to do it again sometime. The pictures are great and so much fun to see. Thank you Tammy very, very much.

We had a wonderful time. Frank was so patient making sure everyone in our party was comfortable with everything - it was the highlight of the whole cruise.

What a great experience! We can't wait to come back to St. Thomas so we can go out with Frank again. The time he spent with us really made us feel comfortable and safe at all times. It was definitely one of our best excursions yet. Next time St. Johns!

Angela and Tony Caniglia
Huntingtown, MD

Thanks for such a great experience Tammy. I have put off getting scuba certified because I have a fear of it. After doing the snuba with you, I have a much better understanding of diving and I have already looked into to getting certified at home. You did a great job of making us all feel comfortable and knowledgeable. I would recommend this to everyone!

Vanessa Vander Meulen

An experience worth trying! I was nervous and uncomfortable when first breathing the oxygen underwater. Tammy was really nice and patient in helping me get comfortable. Trunk Bay was the most beautiful beach we saw during our trip to St. Thomas and St. John. The water was so blue and clear, it looked like pool water!
Thanks for taking us down under Tammy!

My wife Kimberley and I took a SNUBA® tour on St. Thomas on 12/13/05. We have done several snorkel tours on previous trips. This was by far the most enjoyable we have ever done. Frank was a fantastic guide! This was a great value and an adventure we will definitely do again. Thanks to Frank and Tammy for a wonderful time!!!

Definitely the highlight of our trip!  Having never experienced scuba diving, Tammy was an excellent and patient instructor especially since our group was so small (just two of us!).  Coki beach was amazing.

This was one of the best excursions of our entire vacation. I loved how long we were able to stay underwater, and the pictures are definitely a plus. I would definitely do it again.

Daniel Hayes

WOW!!GREAT!!! We had the time of our lives with FRANK at Trunk Bay, St. John.  We were there Sept 12, 2005.  Frank was a super instructor, and patient, and a just a wonderful teacher. I had gone the year before with Tammy, who was also just wonderful and kind and understanding of fears.  It was beautiful, Fun, peaceful, warm, and like flying under water. My husband and I really had a time to remember and will repeat next year when come back again in May! We received our CD of pictures in the mail right on time.  Great shots by Frank!!! Thank you so much for such a memorable day in the USVI. Everyone should at least try this..dive in, live and have fun!! It is safe, exciting and HABIT FORMING!!!! Thank you both!!

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Frank for his kindness and wonderful instruction. He not only agreed to take my son and me for snuba without prior appointment. This was my son's first diving experience and he was very nervous about doing this. Frank patiently instructed him and also stayed close with him until he was OK. It turned out to be the highlight of our trip. I would recommend this SNUBA excursion to all those visiting beautiful St. Thomas.

Harold Huang
Holmdel, NJ

We had the greatest time with Frank learning to SNUBA in St Thomas!

The snuba experience was fantastic... Frank was a great teacher and before we knew it we were 20 feet under water enjoying ourselves!

We are experienced snorkelers but hadn't tried SCUBA yet, so we were a little nervous, but we loved the SNUBA experience so much, I believe we will be getting SCUBA certified in the near future!

We can't wait to get our pictures! This was definitely an excursion worth doing! Thanks for the great time!!!!

What a fabulous experience! Frank must be the most relaxed person I've ever met and he certainly put us both at our ease. We felt completely confident going into this as a result and wow! It certainly whetted our appetite to do some more. This won't be our last trip to St. John and you can bet we'll be back to VI

This was definitely the highlight of our trip to St. John with not a Painkiller in sight.

A highly personalized experience, perfect for families. Thank you for the friendly and professional service.

Frank (our snuba instructor/guide) was awesome! We had an 8 year old little girl and he was so patient with her and very thorough. I highly recommend using this company for your dives. We will use again for sure! Frank from SNUBA® Excursions really made our vacation! Many thanks for a wonderful experience and day!!!

My family (husband, two preteen boys and myself) had a great time trying SNUBA® for the first time in St. Thomas. We had no problems getting to the location from our cruise ship. Tammy provided excellent instruction for us all and told me she was a mom too. She watched my two boys (and the rest of us!) so I didn't need to worry and really enjoyed myself. It was the highlight of our trip. We will definitely go back next time we are in St. Thomas.

Ann Marshall
Phoenix, AZ

My sister and brother-in-law wanted to try snuba while we were on vacation this summer and made reservations for me to tag along - I am SO HAPPY that I did. We saw a shark and tons of beautiful fish, plus were caught in the middle of a huge school of fish (thousands of fish) that swam around us for the longest time. It was the most amazing underwater experience, much better than the reef scuba course I took before, because you are completely set at ease by Tammy, the area they use is extremely easy to manage, and the lack of tanks keeps you maneuverable and comfortable. We signed up for the next before we even had our weight belts off!! I wrote about you two in our villa book so I hope you get some more business. I would say "see you next time" but this experience has encouraged us all to learn to dive...but you never know...

Melissa Markley
Tuscaloosa, Alabama

We would recommend this excursion to ANYONE, it is just the BEST! Frank was our guide and couldn't have been more patient. My wife was prepared not to dive due to not being able to clear her ears, but Frank took her by the hand and guided her calmly and slowly and she dove 20'. The dive was the best part of our cruise. Everyone who goes to St. Thomas should take this excursion, but do it on your own, not through the cruise lines. Can't wait to do it again. A Big THANKS to are the best!

Frank, THANK YOU for a great first underwater experience for my 8 year old. We had a great time - he continues to talk about it - how cool it was and how he wants to do it again. He cant wait to get his SCUBA certification so he can explore more of our underwater world. Frank, thanks for being such a great and understanding and patient teacher for my two sons. Your calm attitude helped them get over any fears they might have had and allowed them to enjoy themselves. The pictures look great and out order for the CD is on the way. Thanks again.

We had a cruise ship stop in St. Thomas and took a chance by visiting the St. John SNUBA® site. Tammy accommodated our family of four. We appreciated that she took the time to ensure that our 8 year old son was truly developed enough for this excursion. We were all able to explore the underwater charms together. She considered our time limitations and managed to give us the necessary training, a delightful tour and advice for a quick return trip to our ship. It was the only family event that we equally enjoyed. Thank you Tammy. We would highly recommend this for a family outing. You have life long SNUBA® fans.

We had Frank as our instructor on July 6th and he was just WONDERFUL. Very kind, instructive and extremely patient! We had never snuba"ed" before and Stu is now thinking of getting certified for scuba diving. I would recommend everyone to try this fun activity at least once in their lives. THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!

Our ship ran late docking in St. Thomas and when I called Tammy she adjusted our dive time and it worked out great. My wife and I met up with Frank and we had our own 'personalized' dive. He was very patient with my wife and went through the setup and instructions with her until she was ready to try it out. It turned out to be the highlight of our trip and we would definitely go back the next time we're back in the area.

This may have been the MOST exciting excursion I have ever done.  You did a great job of making me feel relaxed so I could enjoy the experience.  I will recommend snuba excursions to anyone who visits St. Thomas.  Thanks Again!!

Wow!! That's the best comment I could leave for you. My husband and our two boys went on a snuba trip with Frank on St. John on june 2.  I have to say Frank is awesome! He was so very patient and what a terrific teacher. I hope to go back and try the dive on coki beach. This was one of our families highlights from the trip and a highlight for the year!!!We ended up swimming with a couple of turtles!! Just do will love it!!

Patty McBee
dacula, georgia

I am 28 years old and some how have never learned how to swim.  I tried SNUBA on a whim and had a blast.  You are able to stay in your comfort zone, be in on the surface or 15 feet deep.  Hopefully, I will get braver next time and go a bit further down... We will SNUBA again!

Sara and Adam

Dear Tammy,

We had a great time enjoying the world of snuba!  Your expertise really helped in giving us the right amount of information on how to breathe and how to enjoy the experience.  Thanks again for making this a very memorable experience!

Hi Tammy!
Thanks again for a wonderful time! Diving with you and your daughter was the highlight of our trip.

To all cruisers:
My wife is a certified diver, but I am not. We had hoped to get me certified before our RCI cruise, but we just had no time. When we read about VI SNUBA®, we thought it might be a good compromise, but the excursion was so much fun and so easy, we didn't feel like we compromised at all! When you meet Tammy, she makes you feel like an old friend that has come to call. She was extremely thorough in her short training course, then very patient with us as we snuba'ed around beautiful Trunk Bay. Everyone on our cruise was quite envious of our choice of excursions. We highly recommend this activity to everyone.

Eileen & John Barker

Thank you to Tammy And Frank, You made the experience really enjoyable, Had an Awesome time. Am going to SNUBA® again on my next trip.

Worth every penny! Definitely the highlight of our trip!

Georges Khairallah

Tammy took our group of 5 out on 4-26-05 for the most beautiful adventure in the Caribbean sea. It was without question the highlight of our 7-day Eastern Caribbean cruise on Royal Caribbean's Navigator (RCN). Don't get me wrong, RCN was fabulous and we felt like royalty while onboard, but Tammy made us feel like royalty in the sea. She was very professional, easy to talk to, funny, charming, and just a joy to be with! I couldn't believe they get PAID to SNUBA all day/every day! As soon as I find a gig just as good I'll be happy;) THANK YOU TAMMY! I guarantee we'll see you again!

SNUBA: April 26, 2005 - Coki Beach, St. Thomas

My husband, Bobby, and I had a great time trying this new experience, and we both highly recommend this excursion to anyone interested in trying Scuba Diving and/or snorkeling. Can't beat the fact that you SNUBA® on the most amazing beaches that attract some really cool sealife. And the instructors take pictures of you! Totally wild!!

Monrovia, CA, USA

We had a large group of 9 people with us and we split up into two groups w/ Tammy and Frank. Frank was my group's guide and he was very clear w/ his instructions and very thoughtful. SNUBA® was really a blast! An experience you definitely want to try even if all you're going to do is just float along around the top of the water instead of going all the way down. The water in St. Thomas was just absolutely wonderful. I highly recommend trying this excursion when you get a chance.

Bradbury, CA

I really enjoyed the SNUBA® excursion we went on in St. Thomas. Although I found the breathing transition difficult, Frank was incredibly patient and assisted me through the whole process. Thank you for providing a wonderful experience.


I just wanted to say we had the best time at snuba. It was an awesome experience. Frank and Tammy, you were terrific! I will recommend your adventure to all of our friends.

dianne hird
williamstown, NJ

V.I. SNUBA® was the most awesome excursion of our trip.(actually the best excursion in 12 ports). Frank, the instructor (and owner) was very patient and put us all at ease. That is saying a great deal since I am slightly claustrophobic and afraid of fish!
We would all recommend this excursion. We had no problem getting there from our ship (Carnival Valor)as there were constant taxi shuttles running from Coki Beach to the Pier. The beach was not crowded and there were no motorsports which meant it was nice and quiet for a relaxing time.
We plan to introduce our friends to V.I. SNUBA® on our next trip to St. Thomas!

Mike, Lesley, Andy & Tess
Centralia, IL

Our first SNUBA experience was a great one! The attention that
we received from Frank was wonderful- he eased any
nervousness that we were feeling about our first trip. And- once
we were in the water, he took the time to point-out unique fish
and coral. We had a wonderful time with Frank during our
SNUBA and would recommend him to anyone!

Hi Frank. thank you so much for our SNUBA® in St. John! we had an awesome time! you made the difference and we had you all to ourselves too!

She was patient and sweet and a darling!!! Thanks for the wonderful memories and awesome pictures you took. Hope to see you again in the future. Keep smiling!!!!!!!! The Clifford Crew!!

We loved it and would recommend it to others who have previously snorkeled or wished they could! Our 8 year old son was initially reluctant, but once he discovered how easy it was in knee deep water, he dove deeper and enjoyed it immensely - he didn't want to stop! This excursion easily outdoes any on the cruise ship list of offerings as far as adventurous and courteous, Thanks, Tammy!

Donna and John Masterson
Palm Beach Gardens, Florida - USA

Our family travels to St John each year for a getaway from the snow. We have made SNUBA® part of our week on St John and will continue to do so. My 9-year old loves it. Tammy made the SNUBA® experience comfortable and easy to enjoy - for me and my daughter. It's a great introduction to diving and appreciating all that lies under the surface of the ocean. We'll be back!!

Tammy, you were awesome with family that was scared s-lish by our last (SNUBA®) experience and"would never try it again!" I think I have 3 more scuba dives onboard with me now!

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Frank for the amazing experience in SNUBA® diving in St. Thomas. There were 4 of us and both my wife and my brothers wife were very very nervous about doing this. We could not have had a better guide than Frank. He made sure everyone was comfortable and when my sister-in-law got nervous he held her hand and stayed right with her until she was ok. It was an amazing experience for all of us and we are so glad we took the opportunity to experience this excursion while in St. Thomas. Thanks again Frank and we will definitely be back next time we are in the islands.

Our SNUBA® adventures were the highlight of our trip to St. John - and given how great St. John is that is saying a lot! Frank was a wonderful teacher and an excellent guide. He was very patient, thoughtful, and knowledgeable. He helped put us at ease and he made the whole experience very relaxing, enjoyable, and fun. The scenery and wildlife were fantastic. We loved it so much that we went back three days after our first snuba adventure to go again - and it was even better the second time. We are definitely going to go again the next time we are in St. John, which is our favorite vacation destination. Thanks again so much for everything - a very memorable experience. One more thing - thanks so much for taking the great photos underwater.

We have to tell you--THANK YOU! We had a wonderful time. We travel often & SNUBA® by far was one of the most exciting things we've ever done. We're only sorry we haven't tried it sooner. Frank you were great with me, Especially with my fears--I couldn't even snorkel now I am ready for Scuba Diving. Steve really enjoyed your instructions & is impressed that you could help me-as I am a little thick headed. (It's a great moral booster--steve's so impressed with me--Thanks to you) With all my ear problems in the past this never effected me. Due to you being a Great Teacher. Starting out slow & working our way out really helps. We never realized we were so far out. We are still amazed that we were 30 feet below in the water, it was a breath taking experience. Never in this life time did we ever expect to do anything like this. Thank you--you are so patient!! We would recommend you to anyone & you have the best job in the world. (your also lucky to have that kind of pa!
Thanks again,

We had a great day of SNUBA®. It's our first experience, and it couldn't be better. Extensive pre-dive training, attention to details and and very presence of Frank gave us confidence. Once we were in the water, it was a beautiful experience. In the end we realized how easy and fun filled experience it was. Thanks to Frank for the great time we had.

Me and my wife had a great time with Tammy at Trunk Bay. My wife says she learned more from Tammy than she did in a diving class she took once. And after some easily learned instructions snuba is a piece of cake. If you can snorkel you can easily snuba. And while you're down there you can look for Nemo! Thanks for a wonderful time.

Tammy, thanks for a terrific dive experience! I never imagined it could be so easy. I was surprised how fast my 10-year-old son and his 8-year-old friend caught. We all had a great time and will likely remember this part of our trip to St. John the most.
Sincerely, Mark.

Thanks Tammy! Our SNUBA® dive was incredible. We have told everyone how much we enjoyed it. We cruise often and planning on SNUBA® diving at all ports that offer it. Most memorable adventure yet! Thanks again!

Great time!

Great time. Great pictures. Highlight of our cruse excursions. (Just ask my 13 year old).
Tammy's friendly professionalism made it even better. For those of you who are hesitant, go for it, you'll love it.

Our visit to the virgin islands was a wonderful< experience with many memories, and one of our fondest memories will always be our SNUBA adventure at Coki Beach and Trunk Bay. The first trip was so amazing, we had to go again at St. John. To our utter dismay, the second time proved even more beautiful and thrilling than the first! Thanks to Tammy and Frank for the wonderful instruction, guidance and professionalism. You have a great thing going, keep up the good work.

Aaron and Justina LeMasters

A great experience - Tammy was very helpful and patient. If you ever thought that you would like to try scuba diving, I would highly recommend first trying snuba. It is very easy to learn and you get a real taste of what scuba diving is like - w/out all of the hassle and expense of diving certification. Try it, you will not be disappointed!!!

Howard & Melissa Richman

I have a tremendous fear of the ocean and things that lurk in the ocean. I decided to face my fears head on. WOW! I had no idea what I have been missing! This was the most incredible thing I have ever done in my life and recommend it to everyone! At first I thought I was going to panic especially with the breathing, but Frank was an excellent instructor, and put me at ease which allowed me to enjoy the full benefits of an exhilarating adventure!

Thank You!

Estero, Florida

This was the most fun the two of us had the entire trip. We saw things we never have, and just were amazed by everything. It was very easy to do! Any worries you may have about it should go to was a blast! Frank...thank you very much!

Mike and Jenny
Oceanside, NY

Thanks for the wonderful day spent on St. John. SNUBA® was great and Tammy was so patient with 5 non-scuba divers from the Midwest! The experience was wonderful and I've already told many of my friends about it. If we're ever in St. John again, the most beautiful island in the Caribbean, we'll be back! Thanks again!

Jason & Kara Baker
Greenwood, IN

All I can say is WOW! Tammy you are a pro! Was a great experience, can't beat diving in the VI's, beautiful and lots of fish! Will definitely do again when we return, highly recommend!!! This is absolutely the best excursion! Can't wait for the pics!

Thank you so much! :-)

Laura & David

Frank and Tammy are the BEST! If you have ever wanted to try scuba diving but you've been hesitant, you must give this a try! It's effortless and a great way to learn the basics of diving. And there are no 2 people better to teach you. GREAT to see you 2 again and get underwater with you -- see you again soon!

Frank was awesome...He made my 8 year old so very comfortable, and he really took great care of us.

The dive was definitely the highlight of our vacation on St. John, and we can't wait to do it again!!!

Jonathan Jaffe
Voorhees, NJ

Everyone had a great time and they were very patient with my 8 year old son. We were late getting there from out ship and they still made sure we all got to dive. It was the best excursion of our trip.

Joe Petrauskas
Naperville, IL

How Wonderful! This excursion is a HUGE step for anyone who feels limited by snorkeling but perhaps not ready for all out SCUBA. Frank, our instructor, was patient and safety-conscious at all times. We felt very comfortable in his hands. My husband and I both took underwater cameras down and came back with the most beautiful sea life photos! I still can't believe that we shot such gorgeous pictures. If your bored with snorkeling, you have to try this! You'll be very glad you did! It's an experience of a lifetime, and now we both plan to become certified divers within the near future! Frank, thanks for a great time!!!

Les & Selena Combs

Tammy, Many Thanks! I received the CD and everyone thinks that the pictures you took are great. Thanks for your patience with getting me reacquainted with diving since it had been awhile. SNUBA® was a really nice way to get my "feet wet" again. I think my diving "bug" is back! Thank you again!

Tammy was patient and sooo good with our kids ages 8 and 10. The experience was as close to scuba diving as one can get, and my husband was thrilled with the experience. Now, maybe I can get him to become scuba certified!

Dallas, Texas

We had a wonderful time. Tammy was great to work with. We are returning to the U.S.V.I. again for vacation and would love to do it again. Thanks again Tammy...

This was the highlight of our trip!! We are still talking about it. I was really nervous at first, and Frank could tell. He really took the time and interest to make me feel comfortable in doing the dive.. It was the greatest experience I have ever had. The next time we visit St. Thomas, You can be sure that this excursion is at the top of our list. Thanks again for such great memories.

Susan Van Vickle
Sartell, Minnesota

What a great experience for me and my family! This was our first SNUBA® dive and Tammy was very patient with us. The experience was the highlight of our time in St. Thomas. We didn't see a lot of fish that day, but just the experience of being 20ft underwater was unbelievable.

Since the trip, I've told several people,
"If you like snorkel you'll LOVE TO snuba!"

Thanks again, Tammy!

Jim Morgan
Lee's Summit, Missouri

A most gratifying experience. Any apprehension was immediately dispelled by the expert instruction of Tammy. We were able to enjoy the entire experience. A must for anyone even considering this experience!!!

Donna Earley

SNUBA® was GREAT! Frank was very calm, patient, and perceptive. We had such a great time, we went scuba diving before we left the islands. Thanks!

Melissa Hall
Pittsburgh, PA


What a great dive - a stingray AND a turtle! Nina, Will, Francesca and I had the best time - a really great experience. By far the best daylight dive I've ever had in the Caribbean.

We did the afternoon dive at Trunk Bay on 3/19.

New York, NY

A wonderful time was had by all. Booking online was the greatest. Especially since we were on a cruise ship. We just called from the ship to verify, and away we went. Our daughter Shelby was a bit scared but he held her hand the first few minutes and she had a great time. We will be sending our traveling friends. Thanks Again.

Sue and Roger and family
Ontario Canada

This trip was just awesome. Tammy was the best...she worked with my daughter (kept dear old dad from interfering!!) to get her used to diving down. We can't wait for our next trip down to St. Thomas...I think we'll book the St John's dive then. If you even think you might want to try this, drop them a line - it's an experience you won't soon forget. Thanks again, Tammy.

Joe Young

We had a great time. Really worth it!! Hard to believe we went halfway across the world to meet someone who came from our neck of the woods. Just received the CD of our photos. Thanks again for everything we loved it.

Royce and Shannon Starr

This was the highlight of our stay in St. Thomas. Tammy was an awesome instructor, patient, and care-free. We loved having her teach and show us all the ocean floor has to offer. What beautiful coral and fish were wonderful.

We are planning another cruise to St. Thomas, and you can bet we will be booking a SNUBA® adventure.

Thank you again for a wonderful experience. 

Danielle Gould

It was great! Way more than we expected and truly was the highlight of the vacation. Tammy was very patient with our group of six. Looking forward to doing it again.

John and Tammy Koehler

We had an awesome time. There was a group of five of us all at different degrees of comfort but it was worthwhile for everyone. One must do for anyone in St. John

Kelly and Steve Kluting
Muskegon, Michigan

This was definitely the highlight of our vacation in St Thomas. This was our first experience with SNUBA®. My wife, 2 boys age 9 and 11 and myself enjoyed every minute!
Frank was our instructor and he was very thorough. He initially coached us on the basics and made sure we knew and understood the rules and guidelines before he led us into the water.

It is an amazing experience to see fish so close up, in wonderful colors! We even touched some of them.

Frank did an excellent job of taking underwater pictures of all of us to make wonderful memories.

I highly recommend this for families, including beginners!

Satyajeet Dodia
Austin, TX

SNUBA® with Frank on St Thomas at Coral World was an excellent experience. There were 5 of us who had never done this before with limited snorkeling experience. Frank was great in helping everyone get past any issues before we went out and made sure everyone was as comfortable as possible. Would highly recommend this experience especially with this team as your guide. Saw a ton of marine life and am ready for the next SNUBA® adventure.

Ryan Cunningham
Overland Park, KS

I really enjoyed the snuba experience, and I must say, it was a real experience. My brother and I still talk about how wonderful it was. Now I will really get busy on being scuba certified. Again, Thanks a lot for that for that wonderful experience.

Andre Crowley
Milwaukee, WI

All I can say is that I cannot wait until my next SNUBA adventure! What a wonderfully exciting and peaceful experience. Tammy, thank you for your instruction, patience and delightful personality. I will be back in St. John next year and I can assure you that I will making reservations to SNUBA immediately, not too mention, sending all of my friends your way. Thank you again and "Happy SNUBAing."

Richard Vida

My daughters and I had an awesome time "SNUBA®ing" at Coral World with Tammy! Tammy was great! I know this is an experience they will always remember - and will want to repeat!!

Eva Pastor
Berwyn, PA

What a great experience! During my 8-day stay, I went SNUBA diving 3 times...and loved every minute! Getting up close and personal with the fish is something everyone should do while visiting the islands! Both Frank and Tammy are patient instructors and take the time to make sure your experience is a pleasant and thrilling one! Thanks for the good times! I can't wait to get SCUBA certified!!!

Jessica Quadlander
Austin, TX

WHAT A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE!! We love snorkeling and had been discussing getting certified to scuba...we are definitely hooked now. Frank, you were great and very understanding with us both. If we ever make it back to the VI, we will definitely come see you again! THANKS!!

Russell & Tongia Key
Murfreesboro, Tennessee

The experience was fantastic. We took our 3 kids (ages 8 - 13) and Frank (our instructor) was great with them. The training, actual dive and the surroundings exceeded our greatest expectations. Thanks again for a wonderful time.

Steve & Julie Palmisano
Aurora, IL

Wow, what an experience! We can hardly wait to see the pictures. We snuba dived on 10-16-03 on St. Thomas. The St. John pics are posted but not ours. Can hardly wait. This was the number one thing on our vacation. My husband should be pictured with a barracuda. A big one! It was Awesome! Frank was so wonderful! Will never forget the experience! Thanks so much!

Cherry Sue and Jim Holmes
Lexington, SC

Thank you for a fantastic experience for my boys. Tammy took great care with them while I remained on the beach. I knew that they were safe with her. They had a blast with snuba! It was a wonderful new experience for them. They saw so many new things from a completely different perspective. It was great for them, as brothers, to share this new adventure. Thanks so much. P.S. We love the pictures!!!

N. Manahan
Easton, MD

This was absolutely a blast. My family and I enjoyed this so much we decided to try SCUBA the next day and were surprised how much we had already learned from Tammy. She was a very good teacher and very patient. None of us had ever done anything like this. We hadn't even snorkeled, but this was so easy to learn that within a few minutes, we were underneath the surface to enjoy the beautiful sights and fish of St Thomas. Coral World was nice as well. We all commented afterwards how much we had enjoyed the SNUBA experience and how glad we were that we had decided to try it. Thanks Tammy for one of the best times we had on our entire vacation.....

Larry Ledford
Mansfield, Texas

I took a group of Boy Scouts and Venture Scouts for this High Adventure trip. We found the snuba to be an overwhelming success thanks to the abilities and graciousness of Frank! Tammy went over board for us when a strap broke on a personal mask and we were not in a location where we would be able to replace it on our trip. With snorkeling as our daily fare, it would have ruined the trip for one boy. But, Tammy was able to replace the strap for us in no time. The snuba itself was fantastic. Frank was extremely patient, especially with one who is claustrophobic underwater. We were amazed that it could be done. I would heartily recommend it to everyone, especially groups. It was money well spent!!! And the pictures were an unexpected blessing!! Thank you so much for all your assistance!!

Marian Walters
Lake in the Hills, IL

I absolutely loved it!! Tammy is a GREAT TEACHER!! What more is there to say!!

Deanna Davis
Alta Loma, CA

Frank, What an awesome time...We have been twice now and have loved both trips!! We have been to Coral World and the last time to St. John. It was great. Frank you are so patient and understanding about my ears and making sure they aren't hurting...I truly enjoy it so much that I forget about them and have learned so much that I am ready to try scuba again!!! Larry and I will definitely remember our snuba trips and will make reservations again when we come back to St Thomas, which we hope will be very soon!!! Thanks again for sharing your world with us!!

Larry and Cheryl Somers

I thought the snuba dive was great. My wife was not sure it was as good and I thought. In my 67 years, I've done a lot of things but this was one of the best. All I have left one my "to do" list is jump out of an airplane and then I can go out to pasture.

Charles Cobb
Verona, Wisconsin

I expected to have a great time, but nothing could have prepared me for just how professional Tammy and Frank were, nor how wonderful the experience would be. A very BIG thank you Tammy.

Christine Sylvester

The highlight our our week cruise/vacation was going SNUBA® in St. Thomas. My husband can't stop talking about it and we will make it a must the next time we are anywhere near St. Thomas or St. John. Frank, our guide, was professional, knowledgeable, and patient. Many thanks for a wonderful memory!!

Sandra Kinnaman
Charles Town, WV

My best friend and me had a great time on our snuba excursion on St. John 4/18/2003. I have been scuba diving before and my friend had not. She loved it once she got used to it and Frank was very patient with her. I loved the feeling of not having wear full scuba equipment which I felt allowed you to maneuver more easily. We are returning to St. Thomas again next year and will try SNUBA® at the aquarium. Thanks again Frank!

Kim Burgess

We had a great time on our snuba excursion. Frank, our instructor, was very thorough and patient. He was great teaching our kids. The pictures were great. Sincerely, The Savarese Family Joe, Renate, Michelle and April

I have always been afraid to swim in any ocean let alone go deep. SNUBA® has changed my opinion. We are looking to get certified for scuba now thanks to you and our wonderful experience. My grandson Nick is looking forward to next year so he can join us down under instead of on the raft. Thanks again for a memorable and wondrous dive.

Frank and Tammy,
We had a fantastic time on our SNUBA® adventure on St. John on 4/24/03. Frank was great with our kids and we all enjoyed seeing the reef up close and personal. It was like swimming in an aquarium. Thanks for the great memory.

It really was the highlight of my trip. My reaction to SNUBA: "WOW!" My son's: "That was awesome!"

Joyce Avimeleh

Absolutely an awesome tour. I was very nervous as I had never done anything like this before, but before you knew it, we were down 18 feet and I was loving it!

Dee and Larry
New Philadelphia, Ohio

Mary and I had snorkeled a few times, but we had never ventured below the surface. Mary was apprehensive about being under 15'-18'of water, she thought she might panic. I figured my ears would hurt and I'd be be fairly uncomfortable. We were wrong. Our instructor taught how to keep our ears from hurting along with everything else we needed to know to be completely comfortable and relaxed. We started off from the beach and stayed close to the bottom. By the time Mary looked up and saw that we were way below the surface, she was having too much fun to care. I felt no discomfort whatsoever. Our SNUBA experience was exciting and beautiful. Our instructor was great. It was obvious that he wanted everyone to enjoy SNUBA as much as he does. Mary and I recommend that you give this a try, you won't be disappointed.

Dan Foye
Arnold, CA USA

SNUBA® diving was a great experience. Our instructor was very clear on explaining everything and patiently worked with everyone until they felt comfortable. It was beautiful; lot of fishes and coral. I showed the pictures here at work and everyone is impressed. I recommend it highly for anyone. We were at St John at Trunk bay. Annette French

Granbury, TX USA

Hey Frank, wanted to let you know that my brother kevin and I had an incredible time. it was without a doubt the most enjoyable thing i have ever done. you made it very easy to learn and before i knew it i was "swimming with the fishes". thanks for a great time, i hope to see you again soon!!!! matt

Matt Smith

John and I did the St Thomas dive on 2/8/03 with Frank and we had a great time! I was so nervous before the dive, but Frank was a really great instructor and he made us feel totally at ease. This was the best part of our vacation and next time we would love to do the St. John dive. This is definitely a must do!

John and Kirsten
Oak Forest, IL USA

Pam and I had a great time! Frank was an excellent instructor. We had gone SNUBA® diving last year in Aruba, but the experience was not nearly as good because we received little to no instruction. However, in St. Thomas, Frank was great. We had a great time and would love to return again in the future!

Rich & Pam Mack
Cleves, OH USA

We went on the February 10th excursion at St. Thomas. The instructor was terrific at settling the nerves of some of the members of our party and insuring that all of us had a great time. Thank you!!

Ken & Sue Nordin
Cincinnati, Ohio USA

We really want to thank Frank for the great time we had snuba diving with him on St. Johns and St.Thomas, We went on January 18th & 20th 2003 and it was fantastic. Our boys 11 & 12 had been doing a little snorkeling and took to SNUBA® like fish to water. To be able to experience something like this with our sons is an experience we will cherish forever. My husband and I were able to reclaim the "discovery" of our childhood and be like kids for a while with own children. Frank was a great teacher. I was a little panicked at first about breathing underwater. Frank was really an expert at seeing me through my fear and getting me comfortable. By the end of the dive I was swimming along the ocean floor to very last few feet of the beach.I didn't want to come up! Our second dive was even better and we got to stay under even longer. SNUBA® is an absolute must and worth while adventure for the whole family. A little snorkeling practice will get you ready for SNUBA® that much faster. And SNUBA® will take you to new and extraordinary depths to really be a part of the ocean and swim with the fishes. It was great. Thanks!


I did it! Thanks to you Tammy. I found your instruction and patience very comforting and helpful. Thank you for providing me (and Dan) one of the highlights of our trip to beautiful St. John. All our best to you...until we meet again!

MaryAnn Williamson

I would personally like to thank Tammy. She absolutely RULES! I am quite paranoid of water, I almost drown when I was 5, and had a bad snorkeling experience, so when we decided to snuba, I was VERY unsure about it! She was so therapeutic, and I should know, I am a mental health counselor by trade!!! I just wanted to take a minute and thank her for making me try harder! Her patience is extraordinary!! It was worth every minute and I feel as though I have conquered a true phobia!!! Tammy is the greatest!!!! Had the greatest time! Plan to do it again! Thanks again for your patience!

Melanie Clevenger
Joplin, Mo USA

My husband and I went on the St Thomas dive with Frank on January 11. Frank was AWESOME!!! We have never done anything like that before. Frank made us feel comfortable. IT was definitely the best part of our vacation. I would really recommend the St Thomas dive - feeding the fish was breathtaking. They swarm around you - I doubt you will ever experience that feeling again. If you are on the fence about SNUBA® - WE SAY - DO IT!!! You won't regret it. Thanks again Frank & Tammy!

Laura Coffey
Dunellen, NJ USA

The snuba adventure we had on December 12th was one of the best parts of our vacation to the VI. Frank is the best teacher. Non of us had ever done snuba diving before and he was wonderful. He made us all very comfortable in the water. Thank you Frank for a wonderful experience. I can't wait to get my cd to share with my family. Happy Holidays.

Thanks Frank for a great time! I was really apprehensive about going down under, but Frank really made me feel relaxed and I enjoyed the whole experience. My husband wasn't sure I would be able to do it, but I did and I loved it too! We went on the St. John dive, but if we are blessed to come to the Virgin Islands again, I would love to do the Coki Beach dive too. Thanks again for a great memory and great pictures too!

Kathy Edwards
Lyons, IL

I don't know how to swim and was initially apprehensive about putting my face in the water. Thanks to the excellent instructor (Frank), I did it, enjoyed it and will do it again next year (Nov. 2002). It was well worth the money and a highlight of another fabulous vacation.

St. Petersburg, FL

Frank, I had the time of my life diving the reef with you at Coki Beach on 11/15/02. Gliding just above the coral surrounded by hundreds of hauntingly beautiful fish, is a memory that I will treasure forever. The pictures you took that day are stunning. I plan to frame a couple & hang them in my office. Thanks, Rand

Rand Smedley
Newark, Ca

We had such a great time experiencing the SNUBA® that we have decided to get our certification in Scuba Diving. The instructors made it very easy to learn and a very enjoyable experience. The photos they took of us were fabulous. A must do for any vacation excursion to St. John.

I had a great time with Frank. He taught me how to dive with a hangover. I miss you guys drop an e-mail and say hey. If you don't remember me here are a couple of hints: Ellington's Stephanie

Jeffrey Merrill

My husband and I did the dive at Coki Beach with Tammy and it was absolutely fabulous. Tammy has the patience of a saint. I had wanted to do this since I found out about it, but got nervous and didn't think I could go through with it. Thanks to Tammy's patience, I made it and it was the highlight of our cruise, especially since I spent most of the time seasick. I highly recommend snuba to everyone. Try it, you will be glad you did. Tammy, you're the best!! FIVE STARS ***** PS_Tammy, I am coming back with my PADI certification next time!!

Patchogue, NY

We did both dives, Coki Beach on St. Thomas and Trunk Bay on St. John. Both dives were outstanding, but very different.. If you have time do them both!!! It was the highlight of our trip to the US Virgin Islands!!

Going in I was never so scared coming out I was never so excited to go again. Thank you Frank it was the absolute greatest! Jeanne & Heather

Camden, ME

the very first thing we did on our vacation to the virgin islands was to snuba coki beach on st. thomas with tammy. we were so excited we called and signed up to do it again, this time on st. john with frank. tammy really watched out for our safety and frank showed us a lot of underwater delights. both of you were great!! and each snuba excursion was fantastic! if ever again on the "islands" snuba will be a much anticipated redux!!! thanks guys; it was one of those times where we gladly spent the money and were not only highly rewarded but felt we got the better end of the bargain. our favorite of the trip (and we did quite a lot that week).

rich & joanne

Thank you both for such a wonderful experience. We SNUBA dove at both St. Thomas and St. John with you. Both were fantastic, and we can't wait to do it again. We can't say enough good things about you two and SNUBA. Thanks again!!

Todd and Kelly Gellner

Tammy, Thanks for a great dive (ie. SNUBA®) experience. It was one of the highlights of our cruise. Next time we hope to have enough time to use up more than one tank of air with you.
