1 huge unfortunate landbased delay

New delay in starting up

Due to the land owner not ready for the expansion of his projects, landbased SNUBA in Sint Maarten is suffering another delay.

We expected first to be ready to operate in May 2019, then it became July, then September and now it is unclear if we can even open the doors the season of 2020. It is a very frustrating test of patience, but we hang in there.

In the mean time our other operation is going well. If you are on Sint Maarten and disappointed you cannot do a landbased SNUBA, at least give our colleagues a try:

SNUBA SXM is operational

not landbased SNUBA SXM. Platform in little bay

Experience SNUBA from a boat in Sint Maarten. The service given at SNUBA SXM is of course awesome. You can see by hundreds of reviews on Tripadvisor and Facebook/SNUBASXM that SNUBA is done to perfection already. It is just a little more of a hassle since there is a boat trip involved.

However, if you like or do not mind a 12 minute boat trip to the SNUBA platform in Little Bay, you can sure already experience an excellent SNUBA excursion. We know what we are doing and love to do it.

During the boat ride, you’ll already be outfitted with fins and masks and there is festive music on the boat to make the ride feel like just a few minutes. Your boat will dock on a nice platform in Little Bay, so you will not be stuck on the boat. This feels just like it is landbased SNUBA after all.

Pay a visit to SNUBA SXM or contact us for more info. We, after all, are sister-operations.

In the mean time

We will do everything we can to speed up the process. We are not sure landbased snuba will happen during the season, but we are really hoping it will. Silver lining is of course that all the artificial reefs will be more interesting so we get to see even more than we would now.




Express opens July 1, 2019

Open in May?

Hi all. Exciting news for Sint Maarten and equally exciting news for us at Dark Horse Enterprises. After having run SNUBA as SNUBA SXM for years, we decided we wanted an easier accessible version of SNUBA. Would it not be nice to book, get ready, experience SNUBA, grab your pictures and shirt and be on your way in just over an hour? And all of that for a low price?

Well, we are in the process of making it happen. SNUBA Express makes it possible for young and old and anyone in between, to SNUBA while still have other activities planned for the day. And….. all for an incredibly low price. No boat ride (no motion sickness), very shallow, nice visibility. Come back to this page as we update the progress. We expect to be operational starting July 1st.

This experience is totally different from SNUBA SXM. Get in the water directly from land. Chose from 6 daily tour times with a maximum of 4 per group. (6 if 1 family, upon request), for a personal experience. It is a shallow (10ft) experience. ideal for first time thrill seekers.
