It was fabulous. we were a party of 14 people . We all had never done any kind of scuba diving earlier. No training session required. Our dive instructors were fabulous and we managed to do a 45 minute scuba dive at almost 25 feet depth and saw a shipwreck. St. Maarten does not have corals or too many fish but the scuba dive experience was out of this world.Some of the people in our group could not manage the scuba dive because it is a bit unnerving to do it without enough practice .
