Scuba Diving
& Eco-Sailing
Mobile Frames No Frames Frames

Most crewed charters provide for snorkeling, and rendezvous diving is available through dive companies whereby divers are picked up right off the charter boat. However, a more limited number emphasis scuba diving as part of the charter voyage. Often the crew will include a divemaster/instructor and the boat will emphasize diving, but nicely balance diving with other activities–these boats are listed under Emphasis on Diving below.

Boats whose primary activity is scuba diving are called Liveaboards, a term associated with hard-core dive boats, but the BVI liveaboards engage in a lot of other activites as well.

Emphasis on Diving.

Scubada, a 40′ catamaran, run by David and Stella from England with world-wide cruising experience, both PADI divemasters/instructors (divng included), both windsurfing instructors, both married to each other and a lot of fun. Fitted with three queen berths (and 6 sets of diving gear), Scubada is great for up to three couples. Stella loves Mediterrean cuisine but presents a true international menu in the best Caribbean tradition. aClearGIF15h-15w.gif (829 bytes)
