We would NOT recommend LowKey Watersports of St. John. LowKey is not low key. If you want a relaxing scuba dive experience, choose another company. If you want rushed, shallow dives, then LowKey is your place. With 27 years diving experience all over the world,...More

Low Key Watersports is located on the Island of St John in the USVI, not in the capital city of St John's in Antigua. Jolly Dive Center has good reviews on TripAdvisor, you may want to check them out.

I would recommend a half day for your first time. You will want to get used to driving a dingy and they have no shade so you are in the sun the whole time.
