St. Thomas Snuba Excursion Reviews

Not quite snorkel and not quite scuba, snuba is a unique way to discover the beauty of the coral reefs and exotic fish in St. Thomas.
Underwater adventure.
Underwater adventure. Do not need to be a good swimmer. Excellent crew on the boat. Plenty of time for snorkeling as well.

Did the Snuba experience at Coral World with Tammy. She took her time educating and preparing us for the excursion, which was great. We had done snuba before but all of her training was welcomed. As for the experience itself, we entered the water from a crowded beach (Coki beach?) which was ok but had to avoid swimmers. Current underwater was strong and made it more difficult, but Tammy constantly checked on us which I appreciated. Not as much to see as in Tortola, I asked if the hurricanes had destroyed things but Tammy said that a noreaster like stork came through with a wave that destroyed a lot of corals. Read Less

Holy awesome experience!!! I have only snorkeled and as much as I would like to learn to scuba my ears just don't allow for it. This was such a cool combination of snorkeling a scuba diving. You basically get all the benefits of scuba diving (except only to 20 feet) but you don't need any experience. You get a rebreather. mask, fins and weight belt and as long as you can swim its pretty easy. My husband was looking forward to diving deep but it was nice I could stay a little closer to the surface. There was so much to see and the guide, Glenn, was great. I'd recommend this to everyone, its awesome. Read Less

It was about a 20 minute ride to Coral World from the port. When we arrived our guides gave us a quick safety and training course and then had us in the water. Having never done any kind of diving it was scary for me when we got on the platform to go out into the water, but once I was in I was immediately in love. There were lots of fish and corals to see and the guides were great. Afterwards they allow you to walk around the park and look at sea turtles and iguanas (running wild all over!) or watch their sea lion show, There's also a beach nearby where you can take a swim.

The tour guide that picked us up from the ship, was rude and cussed at one of the cruisers. Acted like he was mad at the world. We got to Coral World and I had never even snorkeled before , so the snuba was way to much for me. I could not do it. If you have never even snorkeled before I suggest you take a different tour. My friend with me, had snorkeled and loved this tour. I could not do it but enjoyed walking around coral world. I would have loved to have been in the water with the sea turtles and petted them. Coral World was great. The woman who picked us up from Coral world was a wonderful Tour guide. We liked her. She was friendly and great. Read Less

Day 4 was in St. Thomas. We docked pretty early and was able to get some shopping done. Don't worry about getting off the ship before 9am as nothing but the straw market is open. We booked the BOSS excursion which is where you ride an underwater scooter with an air helmet on. This has to be one of the best excursions I have taken in my last three visits to the island and I highly recommend it. Read Less

We really loved the Snuba, even though my husband and I didn't stay down long. Our instructor was very helpful and our adult kids had a great time. Coral World itself was underwhelming. Did like the stingray display. Beware of the taxi/tour people. They ONLY want you to take tours. Getting a private taxi was insanely difficult and time consuming. They literally herded us to the taxi area and it was controlled chaos. Hated it. Was told it would cost $300 to get a private taxi to go to Paradise Point and Drake's seat. Yeah, right. If you don't want to jump on one of their multi-person taxis and take a tour or go to downtown forget it. Getting off the ship at St. Thomas went the worst of any port, with huge long lines in the stairwells with crowding and waiting at a peek. Other ports went much more smoothly. Read Less

We booked this trip with husband and our twelve year old son. What I didn't know was that if you have any medical problem, you need to have a physician's note stating you are okay with any strenuous activity. I wasn't able to go under the water with the weights because I had heart surgery as a child. Husband didn't do too well with his asthma - so my son and I just stayed close to shore and snorkeled near the beach. Read Less
