All the pristine dive sites and thriving marine parks you need are here in the Caribbean’s Leeward Islands. All the leadership, perseverance and stamina you need are inside you.
St. Martin is your jumping off point on this personal achievement odyssey. Dive right in at Creole Rock, a protected site north of Grand Case. Clear your mask - you wouldn’t want to miss a shark or eagle ray out for a casual swim. St. Martin is also where you conduct intensive dive training, including academic dive theory and skill instruction in the water. Practice, repetition and a strong desire to reach your goal bring you one step closer toward becoming a professional diver.
