Scuba Safaris Ltd is Nevis' first and only full SCUBA outfit. Scuba Safaris, a PADI 5 STAR DIVE CENTER is based at the Oualie Beach, a sheltered, shallow bay on the Northern end of the island. The Oualie Beach host a small friendly 32 room Hotel with a cozy beach bar a stone throw away from the Dive Shop. The bay is also home to Nevis Water Sports, Deep Sea Fishing, Wind Surf Nevis and Wheel World bicycle Shop all next door to Scuba Safaris.
Scuba Safaris boast friendly professional staff eager to share their knowledge and their dive experiences or just sit, sip a cool cocktail "shooting the breeze" with their guest after an enjoyable day's dive.
Explore virgin reefs among majestic stands of pillar coral, sea fans and long slender tube sponges. Dive among schools of snappers, angelfish chubs, jacks, and barracuda while graceful southern stingrays, eagle rays and turtles glide lazily by. Numerous dive sites are available off the shores of Nevis and St. Kitts. Scuba Safaris has been in operation since 1985, offering superior knowledge and experience of our local waters, numerous Nevis dive sites and varying weather conditions.
We operate 2 custom built dive boats, the largest "Sea Monkey" is a 45 foot Corinthian catamaran which takes a maximum of 25 passengers for 2 tank dives. The smaller boat "Over Exposure" is a 34 foot Island Hopper which has a capacity of 14 passengers for 2 tank dives. All dives offered are guided by an Instructor/DiveMaster.
Our 1 tanker or single tank boat dive is offered in the afternoons. It is usual that some divers may only want to do one dive. This 2 hour guided excursion would take the diver on a shallower reef (20 to 40 feet) to extend the divers down time. Sites such as Bug’s Hole, Booby High Shoals and wrecks are often offered.
Our guided 2 tank boat dive departs daily at 9:00 taking certified divers to some of our favoured sites. The usual profile consists of a first dive from 50 to 70 feet and the second from 25 to 50 feet. As there are over 40 different dive sites to choose, our customers can dive as fequently as they care to without repeating the same dive.
