Always wanted to go diving in paradise? When you’re in the Caribbean you’re surrounded by the best SCUBA destinations in the world. There are four different ways you can choose to mix SCUBA diving with a crewed yacht charter vacation.
Unsupervised Diving – These are yachts that will carry tanks for certified divers who wish to dive on their own. No one is taking official responsibility as a dive professional, and they may or may not have any diving insurance. Gear, if not provided by the guests, can be rented on shore and brought on board in advance. These yachts are suitable for experienced, independent certified divers that want to go exploring on their own.
Rendezvous Diving – Any yacht in the fleet can coordinate with shore-based operations throughout the USVI and the BVI to take you for a morning or afternoon of diving activities. Subject to availability. In rendezvous diving, you can join a group of variable size on scheduled dives. Diving instructors are available for beginner divers, this can be a great option for families as well.
Dive Dedicated Yachts – These are yachts that are completely equipped to fulfill the needs of serious divers. This is for divers who are either experienced or a novice and want to make diving the focal point of their vacation. These boats have ample tanks for 2 dives per day, equipment, and an insured, experienced dive professional on board.
Dive Oriented Yachts – These are yachts for those who are seriously interested in having divers aboard but who have not made the full commitment that the Dive Dedicated Yachts have. There is also an insured diving professional on board. These yachts are suitable for divers who wish for light to moderate diving action while on their charter vacation.
