What makes diving with us unique, is our level of profesionalism and organisation. DiveCarib prides itself on guest experience (read our trip advisor reviews for more) and Guided Dives are our opportunity to truly allow our guests to get the most out of their scuba diving experience.
Dive trips begin with introduction and an old fashioned get-to-know-you customer service followed by gear fittings. We have exceptionally well maintained and serviced scuba gear that helps you stay comfortable underwater. This is usually followed by a day plan briefing from our lead instructor, Leigh Cunningham, which covers our plan for the trip, what activities we will be doing, what we might see, and how long it should all take. After climbing on the boat, and skill refreshers are run through before we head out.
The boat ride itself is part of the experience with so much to see from the water, giving you another viewpoint to truly admire this beautiful island. Upon arriving to each dive site, a thorough briefing on the site itself is conducted, where we go over the plan for the dive including our descent and ascent procedures, the layout and typography of the site, its unique history or how it was discovered, and any other information that is special to the site including the type of marine life you may see there.
Finally the dive itself is guided by our qualified staff, who know where to find the interesting marine life, and make sure that you are able to cover the best parts of any site in your dive. If this is your first time diving in Antigua, we highly recommend a dive trip to make sure you get the most of the sites you dive at.
A large part of a good dive trip is the overall experience. There is little point in doing a dive at a great site with guides who lack professionalism or experience. At DiveCarib, we have world class quality of both.
DiveCarib will be the first and only diving centre in Antigua to offer Technical Diving services.
