What STV clients are saying...
"We had a fantastic vacation. Turneffe Island Resort was everything we hoped for, and more. The diving operation was great. I had injured my knee a couple of weeks before we left and was concerned I wouldn’t be able to dive. The Captain and divemaster did everything they could to make sure I was comfortable and I only had to sit out one day of diving. (Of course that was the day 5 dolphins showed up to show off with the other divers.) The staff takes care of everything for everyone. We’ve never been so well taken care of! The Resort staff, beginning with Tom and Hadas the managers, are all attentive, friendly, and make you feel like family. They go out of their way to ensure everything from meals to drinks to room to activities are exactly what you want and the way you want it. Our flights were all uneventful, transportation was as described. I can’t think of anything that could have been done better. This was our first experience with Scuba Travel Ventures and it was flawless. We will be back. Thank you for helping make our vacation terrific.

“I have been working with Scuba Travel Ventures for about 5 years now. There was a time I would book my own travel for myself and my groups but as I began to look beyond the Caribbean destinations, I soon realized how much I really didn’t know about the more exotic locations. I can’t begin to tell you how easy they have made it to travel to places like Fiji, the Philippines, the Socorro Islands, etc. They know all the ins and outs of scuba travel like the best land based hotels and dive companies to work with, which liveaboards to book, who has the best deals, and the best flight routes to get you where you want to go. For me, they have really taken any hassle out of the planning process and they sweat all the little details so I don’t have to. They have always been quick to answer any questions I might have and they make sure I have all the information I need to make my trips successful. Working with Scuba Travel Ventures has been such a rewarding experience that I now book all my travel through them. Not only do I book all my group travel with them but I have sent several of my friends to them for individual travel and they have all reported back to me that their experience with STV has mirrored mine. They have been extremely satisfied. So if anyone is looking for a first class company to book their dive travel through, I can highly recommend working with Teresa, Mario, and the entire staff at Scuba Travel Ventures. Thanks for all you do!”

Teresa Cabading’s customer service is wonderful. She is responsive and patient to my many emails and questions as we plan a diving trip. I appreciate her “smile” that you can see through the emails. We have enjoyed booking trips with her help.

"I LOVED IT!!!!!! Thanks so much for helping me with my vacation. I totally loved the trip and would go back again.
I had great dives, met great people, ate great food, the weather was great, and I sat on the beach one afternoon and did nothing! And loved it!
One of the dive masters offered to tour me and my dive buddy around the island so we could see more of Cayman Brac. I had a super time. Thanks again and I will call you for my next dive vacation -- hopefully in late spring or early summer. I've also been talking about my vacation and how your company found me a dive trip at the last minute (because I called you at the last minute) and recommended a great place. Thanks again! Cheers!"

“Words cannot express how happy my wife and I have been with Scuba Travel Ventures’ trips and total packages, including vacation travel planning. We have used STV exclusively for over 10 dive trips to all parts of the world and have never encountered a problem. Their customer interface is one of the best I have ever experienced. Their knowledge of the diving resorts, conditions of the faculties, airline deals and schedules is something that we have come to rely on when planning a dive trip.”

"I first want to thank you and the staff at Scuba Travel Ventures for the work before traveling to Little Cayman. Everyone was perfect. Your information was right on target about the traveling and the Little Cayman Beach Resort. I had a great time and the accommodations were perfect. All I had to deal with during the week was when to wake up; when to eat; when to go diving and when to go to sleep. The weather was great and the conditions were almost perfect. I dive mostly in California in a dry suit and it was great to dive in little of nothing."
Edward - Phoenix, AZ
"We have been working with Scuba Travel Ventures for the past 8 years and have never been happier with a travel wholesaler. STV has not only helped to build our travel program, but has been instrumental in showing us how to consistently fill our trips; they truly care about our company’s success and has an innate ability to really ‘tune-in’ to our customers’ needs. They was also the first to offer both land and diving adventures. This combination style of travel has been highly successful for TL Sea and has motivated many of our travelers to secure their spaces early for our trips.
Scuba Travel Ventures is a complete, comprehensive travel wholesaler with their emphasis on care and service. We’re thrilled to be working with such a fantastic group of people!"
Trux & Lavonne - Seattle, WA
“We use Scuba Travel Ventures for our big groups (90-150) and for our average sized groups (20-30) because they sweat the details so we don’t have to! Customer Service, anticipation of potential problems, and precise invoicing are all part of their exceptional business model.

Gene, what can I say but THANKS, THANKS, THANKS!!!
Grand Cayman Sunset House was awesome. Edward & I got in 14 dives including 3 night dives. I know you will take credit for the perfect weather and great dive conditions also. Sunset Divers were fantastic. You pegged this one and I appreciate your suggestion and guidance. We will use you again!

"We are back safe and sound and it was FABULOUS. Thanks so much for pulling it all together for us. As usual you have a great sense of how we travel and what our needs are. How do you do that?"

STV takes special care to ensure your travel documents are received early so you’ll have necessary information such as destination history, local customs, travel itinerary, airline tickets, travel vouchers, etc. to conduct not only an informative pre-trip meeting with your travelers, but a successful trip as well. Best of all, this service doesn’t cost you anything extra; their rates will actually save your group money by coming in at prices lower that normal rack rates or the internet!
