Kenneth's Dive Centre

The oldest dive shop on the island, Kenneth's Dive Centre has been providing quality dive training and guided tours to divers from around the world for decades. Their claim to fame? Astronaut Buzz Aldrin dove with them when he visited the island.

As the oldest PADI members on the island, Kenneth's has the most experience training up new divers, but they are also a great choice for dive and even snorkeling excursions. Bring your own equipment, or rent some from them when you arrive.
