Comments Scuba Fun Caraibes was our worst dive operation experience. Fortunately, their only boat broke down after the third dive and they refunded our 4th pre-paid dive. Most unhelpful dive operation. You're strictly on your own with your gear and they don't even appear to be concerned with customer service, as if appearing concerned was beneath them. One diver had not been diving in 5 years, was having trouble equalizing, and the DM literally had him by his first stage and was pulling him down the line to the bottom. I personally would have ripped her mask off and flung it to the bottom if she had tried that with me. Apart from the dive operation, we saw abundant healthy soft coral, LOTS of baraccuda; rays; angesl; box fish; stone fish; lots of juvinell fish; LOTS of schooling fish. Some great photo ops. We'll go back to dive in St. Maarten, but NOT with this dive operation.
