Dive and dine

With Nevis Adventures you don’t have to dress for dinner, just stay in your wetsuit and join our chef and one of our dive masters for a two-tank scuba dive like you’ve never experienced before.

Beneath the serene surface of the Caribbean Sea, you’ll catch the elusive spiny lobster the way the Nevisian do – using a handmade lasso. Join us on your private dive boat where you will be taken on a dive trip in hunt of the spiny lobster. This two-tank scuba dive excursion takes you to some of the not too frequented dive sites.

Once back on shore, you’ll sip cocktails by the pool while the chef prepares your lobster feast. Take your turn at the grill when the chef shares his recipe for a Nevisian barbecue glaze. The reward: enjoying every succulent bite of your hard-earned catch.

Refresher Course

$ 240 pp

  • appr. 3 hrs
  • Certified dives

We offer a refresher course for certified divers that haven’t gone diving for some time and think they may need a refresher to ensure they have not forgotten how to. The course consists of a short briefing session, shallow water practice and a 1 tank dive.

Snorkelling

$ 80 pp

  • appr. 2 hrs
  • min. 3 people

Departing at 1:30pm our crew takes you out to a side of Saint Kitts called Bugshole where you are guaranteed the best snorkelling trip ever.

Turquoise waters and a rocky seabed team up to make it prime snorkelling territory here. Starfish, sea cucumbers and turtles are just some of the characters roaming the waters off Saint Kitts and Nevis. When you’re out in the water, you’ll need flippers or beach shoes as there are clusters of sharp coral around and about. When you’re done, you’ve got chilled drinks and ice-creams courtesy of the team and a couple of bars right on the sand.

Saint Kitts and Nevis

Our diving is diverse, with ledges, mini-walls, white holes teeming with fish, caves and drift diving in some area. Most reefs on the Atlantic side and offshore on the Caribbean side are pristine, with monster-sized sea fans and sponges growing over piles of lava rocks. Regularly visited reef and wreck sites are on the sheltered Caribbean side of the islands and in the cut (“The Narrows”) between Nevis and St. Kitts, but trips to the Atlantic where the mysterious white holes lie and large pelagic are encountered may be arranged when seas are calm.

Saint Kitts offers the most dive sites, with wrecks and alternate sheltered areas on the Caribbean side when the seas are rough on the Atlantic side or in The Narrows. Nevis dive sites are more vulnerable to swells when the winds are high, even on its Caribbean side, but currents are usually light, and sites are spectacular. Average visibility is 80 to 100 feet, with exceptional water clarity at the cut and offshore Caribbean and Atlantic reefs. Water temperature is 80-85 degrees year-round. Depths for scuba range from 30 to 90 feet, averaging 50 feet. Certification, referrals and resort course with PADI and NAUI instructors are offered. The average boat trip to a dive site takes 15 minutes.

What to expect

  • Your concierge will arrange a time and day for you to either make your own way or picked up locally by taxi to the beach as agreed.
  • All dives are led by qualified dive masters
  • All diving equipment will be supplied
  • Diving days are consecutive or can be changed to suit your personal preference (Please note that the schedule may change due to weather conditions)
  • Don’t forget to bring your camera! Perhaps you’ll catch a nurse shark or a turtle as you roam the sites of Saint Kitts and Nevis.

“A true Caribbean dive experience with amazing dive sites”

I have been diving with Nevis Adventures for years and would recommend them to anyone visiting Saint Kitts and Nevis. The staff are amazing, and the dive sites are unique and diverse: wrecks, hot springs, ledges – something for everyone. Great instructors for those learning to dive. Great dive packages if you want to stay at Oualie and enjoy a beach front room and then just walk on to the boat. Make sure laugh at Ellis’ jokes.

“Return visit”

This was the second time we have visited Nevis and the second time we’ve dived with Nevis Adventures. Again, we had an enjoyable time with the professional staff taking us to some fantastic dive sites which you’ve hardly ever heard about. But this area ticks off every diver’s dream wish list. Most dives we saw sharks, nurse and black tips, turtles, morays and sting rays and the reefs are teaming with marine life. The reefs are healthy and are made of a multitude of different corals. Visibility was good at over 20 m and all dive sites were easily reached within 15 – 20 mins by boat.
A big thank you to Ellis and his team, especially Deuce our dive guide!

“Best place to learn and love scuba diving”

I originally passed my referral open water back in 1999. Deuce who still works there was the boy (at that time) who certified me. I have since travelled the world to many different places and dived with many operations but never have I found it more enjoyable than diving with these guys.

The who aspect of life in the Caribbean is reflected in the welcome and fun you can have with the guys. Many sites around the Caribbean especially tend to be run by ex- pat Americans trying to prove a point. At the end of the day you don’t want to feel like you’re on an expedition, you are on vacation and these guys really make you feel that way.

Diving with Deuce you never fail to find some of the hidden treasures unknown to the rest of the staff, so make sure he or Ryan are around.

The operation is run by Ellis, a real fun guy, but by the same token serious when needed. The whole experience diving with scuba safaris is to ensure you enjoy every minute.

Miss you guys already and I haven’t left the island yet. See you next year!

“One of the best things I've done”

Had a great time at Nevis Adventures with my dad. Staff were funny, kind, understanding and helpful as I was doing my PADI Open Water Certification. Would recommend if you’re keen to try scuba diving or if you have before. Thanks 🙂
