Hurricane Irma

And here she is… Right over our little island. Hurricane Irma, a hurricane of category 5, completely shut us down. Of course she had a little bit of help from the gutless looters who took materials that were spared by her.

So… SNUBA SXM needs to be rebuild from scratch. But, we will and we intend to do it soon. We are working hard to find resources to build a new platform, get new equipment and find some sort of boat.

Do you want to help? We accept PayPal donations! For donations of 50$ or more, you will get a unique shirt… $75 or more will get your name somewhere on our new platform (plus the shirt) and $100 and more, you also get a voucher for SNUBA for two when you are next on island. (and the shirt and the name on the platform)

You can donate right here (even if you have no PayPal account. PayPal will take you to a page where you have options)


Great Stuff. We hope you are part of the rebuild.


Warmest regards,




Overherfsteren in de tropen?

Wie wil er een paar maandjes naar Sint Maarten komen. Als je al rescue diver bent helpt dat, maar Open Water Duikers worden ook gewaardeerd.

Geen rokers. Wij zoeken per direct een of twee mensen tussen de 20 en 35 jaar die voor een paar maandjes komen rondhangen en helpen met ons bedrijfje. Je verblijft in een twee kamer apartement dat door ons is gehuurd. Wij leiden je verder op, terwijl je meedraait met ons.

Het is helemaal niet super druk in deze tijd, dus het is geen zware opgave. Je zult onder meer:

  • Veel SNUBA duiken met onze gasten, na opleiding tot guide.
  • Tanks vullen/sjouwen.
  • Meehelpen in onderhoud duikspullen, platform en boot.
  • Fotoos maken onder water, deze door een serie filers halen en online zetten

Je kunt als DiveMaster vertrekken of als SNUBA Guide. Ligt aan je instroomnivo.

Sound on the SNUBA SXM Boat!

In June 2017, we had as many as 340 participants, which is a new record for SNUBA SXM. of course we are very proud of this accomplishment.

Speaking of records… or MP3 or something… we also installed a new Bluetooth amplifier and speakers on the boat, so we are ready to continue the party with many more of you in the near future. Keep checking in!

Excellent according to 170 Tripadvisor guests.

Booking Payment Problem fixed

As some of you have found out in the last few days it seemed impossible to get thru to book yourself on one of our departures due to PayPal giving us a problem. If you have seen the screen message below while trying to book yourself on one of our tours, please accept our apologies. The problem has now been fixed and your bookings can again be processed. We hope to see you soon for some great underwater SNUBA fun!

On a Cruise and want to SNUBA?

Sint Maarten SNUBA Cruise Excursion
On a cruise ship in Sint Maarten?

If you are on a cruise and one of your stops is the Island of Sint Maarten, SNUBA SXM can arrange a perfect excursion for you.

We are located only a 10 minute walk from the cruise ship facilities and are super easy to reach. There is no need to grab taxi’s. (You can just ignore the barrage of taxi and gypsy taxi sales pushers as you walk off the perimeter) If you book with us, we will be meeting you in Bobby’s Marina, right under the gazebo. It does not get any easier.

Of course we do have contracts with a few cruise lines, so the chance might be that we are not able to book you directly. For instance, if you are on Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines on one of their bigger ships, or Carnival Cruise Lines (except CCL Fascination), you should turn to their respective Shore Excursion Desks or website pages instead. There are perks to booking thru them.

In all other cases, you can use the booking form you find on the right side of every page on this website, to book yourself in.

We do reserve the right to cancel or modify your booking if we find you booked yourself into a time slot that does not comply with your available time on the island or if you are on one of the before mentioned ships. In any of these cases, we will contact you.

Please do read our cancellation policy.

DiveMaster/SNUBA Guide Intern wanted

For the period June 1 – August 31st, we are looking for one or two enthusiastic career oppertunists who would like to become SNUBA Guide and PADI DiveMaster during this period.

You will, after a two week initial SNUBA training period, be building experience in leading SNUBA dives as you are simultaniously working towards your PADI Divemaster.

You will be diving often, but will also be doing any other things needed by our small establishment. This might be: taking pictures, post production, publishing on the website, doing briefings, filling tanks, cleaning/small maintenance and more…

You will be housed in our Intern Apartment, which you share with another intern. All housing costs are taken care of and you receive a share in tips once the initial training period is over and you have become a SNUBA guide. Other than that, this is an unpaid Internship, resulting in mentioned certifications.

We are looking for primarily Dutch PADI Rescue Divers with language skills, absolute non-smokers between 18 and 30 years old.

We have 2 positions to be filled.

Please contact us for more info.
