The best diving in the Caribbean is found onboard a crewed charter yacht. Since your crew can bring you to famous spots at off times you miss the crowds. Often times diving with just your own small group.
If you are learning to dive you get one on one attention instead of being part of a large group.
Almost all of the crewed charter yachts can accommodate divers. Though not all carry gear on board. We can guide you through the differences to find the yacht that's right for you.
If you are not currently a diver but would like to try or even get certified here are some of the courses a dive boat can offer.
- Discover SCUBA - This is a short course is designed to let guests try diving for the first time. The course will take about an hour teaching guests the basics of how to dive and allow them to do shallow dives guided by a dive instructor. This course is available for guests 10 years and up.
- Referral course - This course allows the guest to complete their final dives for their certification course in the blue waters of the Caribbean. The course itself, both class and pool work is taught at home and then the student will be handed a packet to bring down to the dive instructor on board. The yacht’s dive instructor* can then finish the final four open water dives to complete the dive certification. This course is available for guests 10 and up.
- Open water certification - This course is for those looking to earn their full certification while on vacation. It does take a lot of time so the vacation will be wrapped around completing the necessary course work and dives.
*Dive Master vs. Dive Instructor
A Dive Master can lead certified divers only. A Dive Instructor is a level above Dive Master and they are qualified to lead and teach.
If your crewed charter does not have a dive professional on board we can still coordinate diving with a local company. A dive boat will pick you up from your yacht and bring you to the dive sites.
