Scuba Diving

Busy Bee Watersports is one of only two dive shops on St John and the only one based in Coral Bay. Our dive offerings are primarily private, which means we cater specifically to you and your diving experience.  Even on our open group trips, we limit our boat to six divers maximum.

We are pleased to offer a "Two for Two" exclusivity option. This trip will limit the boat to only two divers led by a Dive Instructor. This is a great option for couples looking to avoid crowds or people getting back into diving that may want more one on one attention.

Got a mixed crew of divers and non-divers? Combine a standard full or half day snorkel/exploration trip with a dive charter by adding tanks!

If you are not a certified diver, you can take a Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) course – with 30 minutes of instruction you can be down to 40 feet below the surface under the watchful eye of our instructor. You can even add a DSD to a private charter!

…or go ahead get certified!
