Sweet Bottom Dive Center is located at the Renaissance St. Croix Carambola Beach Resort & Spa. Last year, the Linse family, originally from Chicago, purchased the dive center.
Mark Linse, a PADI Course Director, retired as a Paramedic Chief, after 28 years of service with the Chicago Fire Department. Laura Linse, a PADI Master Instructor, retired after 30 years of working as a Cardiac Nurse in a large Chicago area hospital. And Tim Linse, a PADI Technical Instructor, makes diving his everyday passion.
With over 70 years of collective dive experience, the Linse family has worked in the dive industry for many years and owned a dive center in the Chicago area. They traded in the colder, lower visibility, Midwestern diving for the beautiful waters of the Caribbean Sea!
With a beautiful North Shore location at Davis Bay, Sweet Bottom Dive Center boasts the closest location to the world famous St. Croix Wall. At less than 100 yards away, it is not uncommon to dive with reef sharks, sea turtles and an aquarium full of tropical fish. During certain times, you can hear the humpback whales singing on the wall, observe the spotted eagle rays gliding past or be amazed by a pod of dolphins frolicking with the divers.
When you dive with Sweet Bottom Dive Center you feel the passion that their hand picked-staff has for diving and the luxury a Marriot resort offers. With fresh water showers, towel service, beautiful beaches, lounge chairs, a beach bar, a restaurant / lounge, clean restrooms and a beautiful pool, you are truly catered to.
The cornerstones of the Linse's business philosophy is simple. Safety is paramount in everything they do (look at their extensive medical background). They provide excellent Customer Service. Not only a concierge dive service, but a service which includes accommodating guests with flexibility. They never waiver from Quality Education, regardless of time constraints. And finally, they ensure that Fun is key in every facet of your dive experience.
