Our new custom built dive boat “Octopussy” is a power catamaran made by Hydrocat in Florida.
This is, without doubt, the best diving platform on St.Martin / St.Maarten.
She is 30 feet long, 11 feet wide and has a draft of just 12 inches, giving excellent stability in the water, planning speeds in excess of 40 knots and a comfortable, dry ride.
Octopussy is powered by two 2009 Mercury 225HP Optimax engines. Chris is now a certified Mercury Technician making it easier to ensure that the engines are always running at optimal performance.
The tank rack and ladder are both produced by a local craftsman out of marine grade aluminum and designed by Chris and Sally to make kitting up, entry and exits as easy as possible.
We now have a Sony Marine Audio system on-board and also have iPod hook up available.
All our captains have International Licenses, and hundreds of hours at sea ensuring a safe and pleasant boat ride.
In order to make the trip as comfortable as possible we provide fresh fruit and water on the dive boat and for true VIP service we only ever take a maximum of six guests per trip. The low numbers on our dive boat give each scuba diver the chance to get to know eachother and have a safe and fun experience whether diving in St Martin or snorkeling in St Martin.
Octopussy is a dive boat so safety is paramount. We always carry the following safety equipment….
- DAN Oxygen Kit
- DAN First Aid Kit
- Life Jackets
- VHF Radio and Cell phone
- Flare kit
- Dive flag
- Navigation lights
- Spare tanks
- Tool kit
- Spares kit
- Two fire extinguishers
Scuba in St Martin has never been more comfortable or relaxed than diving on our custom dive boat… fast and safe!
