HOTEL & DIVE CENTER
THE LITTLE DIVE SHACK BY THE SEA
OUR LITTLE DIVE CENTER
THE LITTLE DIVE SHACK BY THE SEA is the smallest dive center on Little Corn Island.
Since we are a small-scale dive operation, all our dive excursions are with a few people only, in small groups.
Avoid crowded boats and dive sites, and Enjoy the individual attention of your PADI instructor, that speaks your language.
Certified or not, come and learn to dive or expand your dive \knowledge and experience with our PADI continuing education programs.
Don't have enough time to do your Open Water? Enroll in our Padi Discover Scuba Diving program.
It is also ideal for small groups of friends to have a private underwater experience.
Our PADI instructors are highly qualified, and we can offer SCUBA Diving Activities in English, Spanish, and German.
We offer FUN DIVES for Certified Divers and a wide range of Padi Diving Courses and underwater experiences.
We do two double-tank dives daily (at 7:30 am and 1:00 pm) and change the tank on the boat between the two dives.
There is also an option for Sunset/Night excursions in the evening.
The crew at our dive center is composed of a captain, a Padi certified dive instructor and we have a help of a frelancer dive master when needed. Come down and meet the friendly and knowledgeable staff members who are the heart of our business. Our team is experienced, savvy, and most important of all, friendly. Check out for yourself, we are waiting for you!!
