    St. Kitts and Saba diving Northeastern Caribbean (St Kitts-St Maarten), Saba St Kitts in November

    The coral and colors in the St. Kitts diving was awesome. The Saba diving could be better at different sea conditions.

    Food was terrific. Dives were great while near St. Kitts, but not so good near Saba.

    Great adventure on board of CE II, comfortable stay and plenty of diving Northeastern Caribbean (St Maarten-St Kitts), St Maarten in November

    We managed 25 dives during our time on board. I felt very safe and our dive masters were very knowledgeable about marine life as well as dive sites.Plenty of good food and beverages of every kind available. Overall good value, considering amount of dives available,boat quality and service provided. Thanks to captain Ian,Brett,Kathy,Jenny,Terry and chef Jim for good times on board of CE II.

    First live aboard but won't be my last Northeastern Caribbean (St Maarten-St Kitts), St Maarten in August

    As my first live aboard I wasn't sure what to expect but after just a few minutes on board I knew that this was going to be a great experience. I cannot say enough about the crew, just simply unbelievable service. The food was outstanding and plentiful. And the diving was top notch, 27 dives offered with lots of variation. Wrecks, walls, and reefs from 45 to 130 feet all with lots of life. I am already planning my next adventure with the Explorer family.

    I've been a diver since 2013 and this trip open my eyes to the little aquatic live forms that I never noticed! Thanks Tuna! Northeastern Caribbean (St Maarten-St Kitts), St Maarten in July

    My 100th dive along with the most fantastic night dives. From the Captain through the Divemaster everyone deserves a big thanks for sharing all the knowledge and make it so much fun. I'll be back!

    I had great time on the Caribbean Explorer II Northeastern Caribbean (St Kitts-St Maarten), Saba St Kitts in April

    Diving. My favorite was the early morning dive on Friday! The staff was a lot of fun and made the trip a great experience. At the same time they were very professional and you could tell they took great pride in their work. They all seemed to work very well together. The Captain was always around and helping out which was a pleasant surprise. I truly enjoyed this trip with this group of staff.

    Good value trips Northeastern Caribbean (St Maarten-St Kitts), St Maarten in March

    Very good trip, small boat and not particularly luxurious but everything worked and it was good value for money considering the great food/drink and service provided by the fantastic crew. Ratings for Diving and Dive Guides together doesnt' make sense as they are completely independant - guides were excellent (5/5) and the diving was good but not outstanding (3/5) hence the 4/5 overall.
