Hello,
Trying to get down to St. Thomas in the summer for vacation. My son has his scuba certification. Any dive company you can recommend that you like? Also, air fares are crazy. Hoping for a sale from NYC/Newark area.
Thanks so much.
Carolyn

If you don't use it already I find Google Flights is a good way to find lower airfare prices.

Be flexible on your dates and I am seeing fares in the low 400 range on American from JFK. It won’t go much lower.

Actually I got air from JFK to St. Thomas, nonstop, roundtrip for $596 on American. It was the cheapest in about 4 weeks so I grabbed it. Rented our Airbnb and got our rental car. All ready to go in August.

Hi Carolyn, My husband and son are divers so here are a couple dive companies to checkout...

My son got his dive master certification with St. Thomas Dive Center summer of 2016... They are located at Bolongo Bay. https://www.stthomasdivecenter.com/

The company they typically go out diving with now is Red Hook Dive Center. https://www.redhookdivecenter.com/

I suggest your son takes a look at their websites... And call each one to see what company he feels more comfortable going out with.

I'm sure you're aware, August is hurricane season, best to have trip insurance!

Wish you an incredible trip!
