Dive Safaris

Dive Safaris is run by Henry and Helmie Franken, two divers who have traveled the world diving wherever they could. Take the opportunity to dive with them and they will take you to some of the best places in Sint Maarten where you will be able to see fish and other marine life up close.

Cost and Offerings

While Dive Safari's offers basic open water dives and a host of PADI certification courses, most people are interested in the fact that they specialize in shark awareness dives. Here you will learn all about these majestic creatures and follow your guide to an area where sharks are common.

For certified divers, a dive with equipment costs $65, while two costs $115, three $170(USD), and so on with a similar discount for every extra dive. Specialized dives cost between $70 and $90(USD), including dives for non-certified divers. The PADI basic certification course at Dive Safari's costs $470(USD).

What to Expect

Dive Safari's comes equipped with two boats, both able to hold around sixteen people, so no need to worry about party size. Their boats are docked in the lagoon, so entry and exit are very easy.
