Scuba Diving Charters
Charter on a Yacht for the Diving Adventures of your Dreams!
The British and US Virgin Islands and the Bahamas offer some of the Caribbean’s best scuba diving. Famous dives such as the Wreck of the Rhone, Angelfish Reef, Danger Reef, Wreck Alley, and Jeep Reef are just a few mentions. Clients get to dive right from the stern of the boat with divemasters onboard. You have to bring proof of your Scuba diving certification. If you need to do a refresher course to get you up to speed if you have not dived in many years, just complete this before arrival or at a resort before stepping on the charter yacht. Some captains and crew members have Scuba Instructor licenses. The yacht offers various diving courses, including Discover Scuba, for those wishing to try before committing to a full Open Water dive course. Rendezvous diving is offered by other boats (a dive company will meet you at anchor, and you transfer to their fully equipped dive boat), and some yachts even hook you up with a dive instructor for a certification course.
Water sports of all kinds abound in the Caribbean and the Bahamas, and you will fill your adventurous spirit whether you choose sea kayaking, snorkeling, fishing, kiteboarding, stand-up paddle-boarding, or more. The non-divers can enjoy other water sport activities while the divers are underwater.

Thank you so much for a unbelievably beautiful experience. This was our first experience with a charter boat- wow! Can’t wait to try this again- but not without you two. we so appreciate your hospitality helpfulness, kindness and patience 🙂 Chef, you should be a rated Michelin Chef- taste texture variety Freshness, delightfulness EVERY single meal. Thank you for spoiling us. we appreciate it and will try to replicate your dishes at home. Thank you for such a memorable trip- memories that will last a lifetime for the six of us.
This trip has been a lifetime dream for me and you made it beyond my wildest dreams. Thank you!
Thank you for an amazing trip! It truly was one of the best trips of my life that I will never forget. I am so grateful to all of you for what you did the last week. I loved the diving, the drinks, and floating behind the boat. My favorite part was seeing the sea turtles. That was incredible!
This week has been amazing!! Thank you for a week filled of adventure, knowledge, humor and most importantly memories. Chef, your food is amazing and made every meal with love!! Captain, you have made our journey and island days unforgettable. Thank you both again and we will see you soon ❤️“
What a way to ring in the new year! Our family is leaving with memories we will have for the rest of our lives. Your spirit, passion for your work and committment to quality service made this one of the best, if not the best vacation of our lives. Non-stop adventures, divine cuisine, stunning settings - It was from start to finish a magnificent experience. All the best - The Family
THE CREW ARE GREAT AT WHAT THEY DO: Exhibiting an acute attention to detail – no point of order was too small / nothing was overlooked to ensure the best experience. These guys care about delivering excellence / ensuring Euphoria’s guests have the best possible experience. Two examples here: (a) our group really enjoys live music. So how do you pull this off in a COVID-centric / very remote USVI environment? A somewhat bizarre / challenging request indeed. But Cory came thru by locating / booking the band “After Irma” who regaled our group with a brilliant 2.5 hour live performance on the fantail of Euphoria (for some of us it was the highlight of the trip) … and (b) I was hoping to find a little bar / haunt in Cruz Bay where I had spent some good memories back in 2003. The goal was to grab a quick libation and buy another T-shirt. As promised … I caught a ride to shore … found the place but it was temporarily closed. The jaunt still made for a very fun side excursion. Two days later … and totally unbeknownst to me … the captain had made his way back to Cruz Bay and found the bar when it was open / he bought me the T-Shirt I was seeking. Totally unnecessary … but you can imagine how that gesture made me feel.
THEY ENJOY WHAT THEY DO: Always seen with smiles on their faces … the crew seem to relish in their roles – which are quite challenging when you think about it. Catering to so many different preferences can be a tough task. But they do so with ease. No examples are more illustrative than (a) meal time. The meals are brilliant: the presentation / the delicious quality / the variety. You can tell she greatly enjoys “WOWING” her guests with these endless options. And I have never been so happy to sit down to eat. And (b) the amount of time the crew spent chatting up / enjoying / interacting with our group. It not only made for a great vacation – but it made for an excellent way to make new friends.
So as we return to reality … I want to thank you all for such a great time!
We will plan to come back again soon!
What an absolutely heavenly week! It is not often that a trip we’ve taken has actually exceeded our expectations, but this past week with you certainly did! Everything was perfect – the food, as evidenced by our continually cleaned plates, the activities you provided and the Anastasia herself! Most of all, though was the crew! You both couldn’t have been more of a treat. You were so professional, we knew we were in good hands, and such fun! Thank you for an amazing week – we loved being ‘Fun-Seekers’ with you both!
We have had and an incredible week aboard Tortuga. This was our third and hands down the best experience yet in the Virgin Islands thanks to the crew. They provided delicious meals, drinks, sunsets, hikes, diving excursions, and conversation. Words cannot express how grateful we are for this beautiful week! The captain certified our 12 year old to dive and showed us some incredible underwater wonders along the way. Between dives we had some lovely sails, fun tours on the sub wing, spike ball contests, snorkeled with turtles, hiked pretty view points, floated with drinks, paddle boarded and ate like kings. The chef catered to our preferences and prepared delicious meals. Some favorites included tuna poke bowl, shrimp ceviche, eggs benedict, beet hummus and key lime pie. She also makes a delicious margarita! The crew also made it possible for us to meet up with friends several times along the way. We met several other families at Lime Out and anchored along the corner for the kids to mix it up with some water sports and the adults to enjoy sundown. They made it possible for us to meet up with other for beach games, cocktails on each other boats and dinner at Lavango. We enjoyed every minute with these beautiful people and this beautiful place!
Cannot express how much we enjoyed our trip with this crew and this boat. From the second we stepped on the dock to when we got off they were nothing short of amazing. From our entire group Thank you!!!
Thank you for a fantastic week filled with amazing food, great adventures, beautiful scenery, great hikes, scuba and snorkel trips and endless fun! We really enjoyed our time with you aboard Excess.

We absolutely loved our week with A3 and her crew. The boat was spotless, the food out of this world, and the diving/snorkeling amazing. Thank you for helping us plan this vacation.
Thank you for the most amazing family trip. We are going home with many memories that we will forever cherish - from snorkelling with turtles, amazing hikes, beautiful beaches, tacos, pizza from both restaurants and of course the chef’s amazing meals. We will all never forget this wonderful sailing adventure!! We had such a great time, thank you for that wonderful experience. The amazing food gave us energy to do fun things, ❤️ 5 star review!!
Thanks for a wonderful charter! We took full advantage of every possible activity that you could possibly offer. AND LOVED IT! We are so happy we were with the the two of you and Twin Flame. You did everything possible to make us feel special and ensure that we had the best vacation ever. The service was incredible and that you never wanted to say no to anything. You created some great adventures for us with even the six year old jumping off cliffs. One of the things that I really appreciate about the two of you as crew is how involved you are with the guests. You don’t just point us in the right direction - you actually led us on the adventures which really enhanced our experience. And let’s not forget the food - “amazing - much more than we expected."
Another fabulous week of laughter, sun, snorkeling, adventures, MacDuff’s, piggies, and lots of
Mexican Train. Chef, the food was out of this world! We can’t tell you how much we love
and adore you all. Please promise us that you can and will come visit up in Maryland and we
would love to make you guys feel as loved as you made us feel throughout this week. Your
attention to detail is amazing. We would follow you anywhere. Even to the iguanas. “yikes!!!”
See you in a few weeks. . . months! (I promise)
The crew were amazing! My family and I were first timers and we are now counting down the days to our next trip! We adore them. Anything you want they will deliver on!! Can’t say enough about the trip, the boat and the crew!!
#FLOATATIONTHERAPY The name says it all. If you are looking for a charter that creates a place of peace whether exhilarating adventures w hikes, dives/snorkeling, or serene bays and beaches basking in the sun Floatation Therapy along with its great crew is the place to be. They had fresh unique dishes and some fabulous favorites. Cappacinios with breakfast, simple snacks after snorkeling, appetizing lunches, more snacks if you like, and of course, opulent dinner followed by decadent desserts. And always on hand a cocktail or two or three! The crew, helped us plan and create the experience we wanted. A getaway with no shopping, no work, low carb menu, and no stress. Beginning in Caneel Bay, snorkeling at Henley Bay (awesome), Trunk Bay - beautiful beach to bask in the sun (underwater snorkel trail interesting), Cruz Bay - off to our one dine out, Leinster Bay - hike up to Annaberg Sugar Mill (light hike, history, and butterflies among the Nokia trees), another beautiful restful visit to Caneel Bay among the sea turtles, then off to Salt Pond Bay - light hike through Salt Pond (a lesson in salt and ecology in itself) to Drunk Bay (a transition from simple beauty to splendid rock/ reef/fossil exploration) - with luscious mangroves, rolling green hills - a dramatic sea crashing among the rocks. On my next trip, I plan to hike Ram Heads Trail, which I hear is spectacular. Thank you, for an awesome adventure and all the therapy I could ask for. You'll see me again!!
Thank you for such an AMAZING week! We started as passengers and as the week went on, we became more like family. Your hospitality and kindness were truly appreciated. Chef - you have mad skills in the kitchen! We loved your creative and tasty dishes - and your delicious cocktails! WELL DONE! Thank you. Captain, thank you for your great commentary throughout the week and always leading us in our off boat excursions. We felt so safe knowing you were in charge!
Our trip was absolutely amazing and exceeded our expectations in every way possible. We rank it our top family trip, and we've taken quite a few of them. First of all the crew took our experience to the next level with their knowledge, professionalism, willingness to our accommodate our requests, and their overall attitude and demeanor. This work was totally impressive and they kept everything running smoothly all week. When they had a few down moments we had a great time hanging out with them, playing games and enjoying all the water sports. It would not have been a better match for us. Tranquility is a beautiful catamaran that accommodated our group well. It's very comfortable, all systems were in top working order, the crew kept it pristine and sparkeling, and we felt like we were in a floating resort. Thank you. It was over the top, epic trip.
I don't really know where to start or what to say other than THANK YOU a million times over for the absolute best week we've ever had. From the amazing food to the "slight tug" getting us out of our comfort zone (some of us anyway lol ) You both are the best! We can't wait to do this again.
We had a GREAT trip! The crew were both very gracious and accommodating hosts. The perfect mix of excellent service and attention with fun, adventure and excitement! The boat was a perfect size for the four (six with the crew) of us. The boat was very clean and well maintained....you can tell they are very particular! In a good way....I'd let them crew my boat any day! The captain set us out on a great itinerary with very little repeat from our trip in February. We wanted to spend a lot of time in the water and we accomplished that. We snorkeled and the girls did some scuba diving in a number of different beautiful locations. The meals on the boat were all delicious and very well presented. Knowing we had some non-seafood eaters on the boat, chef took the time and effort to prepare seafood for me and Donna, and an alternative meal for the girls...filet no less! The girls took "meal pics" every day that I'd be happy to share with you.
Thank you form the bottom of our hearts for taking such good care of us! You are the dynamic duo, the ying and yang and the perfect combo to make our sail a dream come true. Captain, you always made us feel safe and your expertise always appreciated. Chef my lovely - you are a bright light - cooking is one thing- beyond anything we have ever had, but your smile and laugh could change the world. I hope one day we can meet up.
Fair winds to our forever friends.
Bruce, Eileen, ann and Patty
Thank you for everything! What an amazing week! Outstanding mixology, incredible food, gorgeous dives! We could not have asked for a better escape from the global pandemic... we will definitely return to Foxy Lady.
The trip was amazing. We all had boat loads-ha ha- of fun. The grandkids loved the crew as did we all.. They did their utmost to make the trip memorable and succeeded. The boat was amazing. We can't thank you enough for your last minute pull the catamaran out of the hat trick. They took us to places we remembered from our past trips and some we had not been to. All in all it was wonderful. The crew, the boat, the food- everything. Evenings after the kids went to bed when we weren't too tired ourselves, were chock full of games and drinks. Taboo, Pass the pigs, and a dice game the crew taught us brought on the laughs. Watching Jonah think he was steering the boat when it was on autopilot was hilarious. They had the grandkids write notes and put them in wine bottles and throw them overboard. We have videos and pictures to document our Island jaunts, including conch blowing with "The Pirate".
Let us first say that we were totally new to any kind of sailing or sailing adventure like this. Have been on a couple of small sailboats years ago for an afternoon sail but that was the extent of our sailing experience. What an incredible boat!! No expense was spared by the owners when they outfitted this boat. Everything was done to enhance the experience. Even though it is a catamaran the individual staterooms have plenty of space. The beds - extremely
comfortable. Every stateroom had its own temperature control – the air conditioning was a welcome benefit for sleeping at night. Each stateroom had its own bathroom with a shower. Plenty of fresh, hot water for the shower. Boat has its own fresh -water system so no need to make repeated stops for fresh water. The back deck was very spacious. You never felt crowded. Plenty of seating room. There was additional space to hang out on the front of the boat for sunbathing. The bridge/ upper deck was really cool. Lots of space to enjoy the incredible views. And Yes, for those who can’t be unconnected for a week, the boat does have Wifi. Boat comes fully equipped with just about every water related activity you can want. Complete snorkel and scuba gear was available. Everything was new and in perfect working condition. The Captain is a dive instructor and the Chef/ First Mate is a Dive Master. They know all of the great places in the islands to snorkel and dive. During our dive and snorkel trips, we saw turtles, rays and great variety of ocean fish. The crew were amazing!!! We can’t say enough good things about them. They made the whole trip as relaxing and fun filled as possible. They saw to everything for us. Always cheerful and pleasant nothing seemed to bother them. Excellent captain – knew all the great places to go to. Handled the boat with great skill and confidence. Made us non-sailors very comfortable and at ease. And an incredible chef - every meal was a gourmet experience, rivaled some of the best restaurants we have eaten in around the world. We are still debating which one was the better bartender!! (And the boat had an exceptional stock of fine beverages and a great wine selection) The islands were beautiful. Every sunrise and every sunset were a sight to behold. Incredible blue water and beautiful scenery. We made several stops during the trip to sample the local flavor (usually made with some type of rum).Everyone was extremely friendly and very helpful. (Yes, the crew knew all the good places to stop - Soggy Dollar, Full Moon Party, etc.) This was the most relaxing, enjoyable vacation we can remember having in the past 20 years or more. The 7 days on board flew by. The entire trip was tailored to the passenger’s comfort and enjoyment - All thanks to an incredible crew, a fantastic boat and mother nature. What would we change if we did this again - Nothing!! It was as perfect as you can get.
Thank you for such an AMAZING week! We started as passengers and as the week went on, we became more like family. Your hospitality and kindness were truly appreciated. Dani - you have mad skills in the kitchen! We loved your creative and tasty dishes - and your delicious cocktails! WELL DONE! Thank you, Ryan, for your great commentary throughout the week and always leading us in our off boat excursions. We felt so safe knowing you were in charge! Please look us up if you ever want to visit Minnesota!

We had a fabulous trip. It was truly amazing! Crew was great. The captain picked up on our sarcasm pretty quickly and joined right in with us. It was fun with him being our same age. He was always helping the crew with whatever. Often times a hard worker in the kitchen too, was very quiet and soft spoken and often we had to tell her to smile but she was super sweet and obviously young so I can see how we were a bit intimidating. She would open up in more one on one type situations. She is a very hard worker! The stewardess was great. So funny and joked with us and always there to help and get us whatever we needed. She fit right in perfectly. The chef was amazing. Food was incredible. He said we were his fav group thus far bc we weren’t picky and we let him do his thing and finished our plates, lol! I was shocked how much time they spend in the kitchen. We enjoyed the times he could hang with us. Overall they were amazing constantly serving our needs. We ended the trip with the crew joining us for dessert and we all shared our favorite things from the week and it was really neat with crew sharing their thoughts too. We pretty much left the entire itinerary up to the Captain which he noted he appreciated that we trusted him. The stops were awesome. Weather was perfect and seas were calmest he’s ever seen. The boat was nice. Definitely was older and had its flaws at times bc of its age but nothing that stopped us from having a blast. The master room was amazing! I’m hoping we do another trip soon!
Our Iconic duo,
We wouldn’t know where to begin by expressing our appreciation to you for giving us the most epic experience. Every day was a greater adventure than the other and thanks to you two- our genuine feeling towards everything you have done for us is over the top!
From the service, hospitality etc the food is one thing we will never forget. The chef is one talented chef! Absolutely speechless meals created by an awesome artist. Ruby- the sweetest heart, the boat does not function without! Worlds best honeymoon holiday, thank you for everything and we mean EVERYTHING!!
Love Aboudi & Farrah
Ocelot sailing experience is truly amazing. Between our 3 couples, we have traveled the world and this week with this yacht and crew is our favorite travel experience. The moment you board the boat, they make you feel at home. The boat has an abundance of lounging areas that allowed all of us to find places to relax and enjoy sailing. The captain is a knowledgeable captain, taking us to islands, snorkeling spots, and luxurious bays each day. Last but certainly not least, the chef’s cooking is delicious! She has a sweet way of catering to each guest and for us she was truly the gem of the Caribbean. This is the trip you can’t miss. Can’t wait to sail again.
Just a quick note to you guys to let you know we arrived safely back in Dallas with zero travel difficulty. Wanted also to again say thank you for a terrific week aboard the SV Callista...you two treated us royally and made it a special trip. We appreciate all of the extra effort all around...from special cocktails and creative/tasty food to early morning fishing and afternoon tubing....it was all above par and much appreciated.
Super fun and relaxing vacation with Abundance Yacht Charters sailing around the US Virgin Islands! Stayed in a different bay each night with days filled with sun, beaches, hikes, snorkeling, paddle boarding, delicious on board food, and fantastic views!
"18 months ago we planned our crewed charter to the BVI's and were all set to go - then COVID came. After navigating through 3 different charter boats and several travel dates we landed on Scuba Doo and to the government restrictions our sail was limited to the USVI. Having never sailed the USVI we were excited to sail new locations and see new things. The crew convinced us we would not be disappointed and they were so right! The boat was in great shape and the weather was just about perfect. Not only did we have outstanding travel partners, we visited pristine beaches, rode horses in the ocean, visited St Croix for the first time, jet skied, scuba dived, snorkeled and paddle board. All of this made possible by the crew who made sure everything was perfect for us - especially the amazing food (kudos to Patti) and many MANY perfectly made cocktails. So while 2020 started out extremely crazy with a worldwide pandemic this week has been "paradise on earth" to say the least. We are so blessed.
Thank you both for the most perfect vacation EVER! We seriously loved every second. We were so bummed when the trip got cancelled back in April due to covid, but this was so worth the wait! The cooking is incredible and it will be missed - your unbelievable birthday cake, pizza rolls, homemade bread, pasta carbonara, and all the rest. We loved the captain and his ukulele playing, snorkel tours, "scurfing" skills, and everything you did! We are also so happy-so many laughs!
I have been on many catamarans charters and want to express how amazing the crew was, they went above and beyond to make our vacay an exceptional experience! They were so awesome in every way and made this vacay one of the best ever!
We spent a week aboard. The captain is extremely professional and knows the keys like his backyard. He showed us many remote spots that we would not have been able to visit any other way. We anchored in the most spectacular settings far away from anyone else. We spent hours snorkeling and kayaking, and swimming before breakfast. The chef cooked us incredible delicacies with fresh ingredients and surprised us with different meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner every day. She also surprised us with great cocktails after activities and even cooked a birthday cake for our friend. The creative and artistic way she presented the food made us feel like being spoiled in a 5 star hotel. We were two couples and we each had our own cabin with private bathroom. There was plenty of room for the 4 of us plus 2 crew and the chef kept the boat spotless throughout the entire trip. They are amazing hosts and we cannot recommend them highly enough

When the idea of this trip first popped into my life, I was at a crossroads. Not sure of much else but that a couple of years later I would make the trip that my friends were describing over a couple of drinks on a cold November night in New England. Thank you both so much for making this trip amazing. I didn’t know what to expect, but I can say I am thoroughly amazed at the experience you have given us. Thank you for making us feel welcome in your home, for sharing your love and knowledge of the Caribbean, the incredible meals, and the comradery. You guys are something special and made this voyage phenomenal.
Thank you,The McFall's
After years of bareboat chartering; This crew and yacht has converted us! Knowing the anchorages, snorkelling spots and finest dining (right on board!) has made us understand chartering done right. Thank you for giving us a fabulous week– you rock!! Come visit us in New England when it is warm! Absolutely fabulous week in paradise – a little piece of heaven – thank you so much!!
We LOVE YA ALL!!
Thanks for such a fun sail.
Thank you so much for everything, we had a fun time and you are the BEST.
Thanks Chef for all the great meals we loved them all.
UI must say that it is difficult to convey just how welcoming and caring the crew were to each member of our family. Clearly the needs of a 10 year old boy, a 13 year old girl, and 4 adults are very very different. And yet, without being asked, both of the crew cared for each of us with the attention that we each needed. To me, a perfect example of their care and concern was when the captain brought out the fishing gear after dinner one night and asked our 10 year old if he wanted to learn how to fish. The delight on that boy’s face when he caught one, mirrored the delight in the captain’s face! It was worth a million dollars. They are fantastic teachers - The crew did the final review of a PADI scuba review course with Steve and me; Megan, our 13 year old, was just certified and they were both there supporting and teaching us with the obvious emphasis on safety. They were clearly aware of our dietary needs and preferences. Both of the crew are superb chefs; the menus were exactly what we enjoy eating and the emphasis on healthy, vegetable laden meals was wonderful. Each meal and snack was beautifully presented; variations on the meals were offered to those who had dietary limitations, and they provided kid friendly variations on the meals. Healthy, clean, food, prepared well by professional chefs - wonderful. The yacht is beautiful, and each area was clean and very well maintained. The kitchen area is kept very clean. Given the complexity of each of the meals, it is important to applaud their food storage techniques which kept the food fresh all week. That in and of itself is difficult, given the amount of food that is needed to feed 8 people several meals and ’snacks’ (which were often small meals) daily, for a week. The crew are, in my opinion, very caring, decent, loving people who are wonderful hosts, sailors and epicureans. I would sail with them again in a heartbeat. All in all, it was a very very memorable week for all of us and we are all very grateful for the opportunity to spend it with the crew and yacht. I’m hoping to do this again some time. It was fantastic.
I truly wish words could articulate how amazing this vessel and crew are. We had a group of 2 and 2 are vegetarians. The chef catered every meal to fit everyone's taste and preference. I can only say if someone is wishing to book this yacht and crew, please don't hesitate to make the greatest decision you will ever make booking this yacht and crew.
This trip greatly exceeded our expirations! Thank you Jospeh and Britta for the most amazing experience! Not only was it the best food and wine we have had in our lifetime, but it was truly the most wonderful crew, family and fires that make it so memorable. And we cannot forget Zoe, who is one of the sweetest and cutest golf - great at making you feel love and at home! We wish you all the best in your new venture and cannot thank you enough for inviting us for the maiden voyage!
We love you!
Scott and Nancy
Words fail. I cannot begin to say what this week has been for me; for us. It was beyond anything I could have imagined. From the moment we stepped on the boat, it was amazing. The food- incredible, creative, tasty, inventive. Chef- thank you for taking all of our crazy needs/wants and crafting meals that were superb! Captain- your patience, sense of humor, and attentiveness is beyond appreciated. We are grateful for every single minute of this week. Thank yo
Our time aboard the yacht exceeded our expectations day after day. Everything we top notch from he delish dished prepared by the chef to the sailing and water games with the crew. Each day brought a new adventure from snorting, sailing, paddle boarding, exploring the Baths, Indian rock, Bubbly pool and White Bay. We made so many memories as a family aboard the boat and were truly grateful to spend Thanksgiving with the crew. What was the most impactful part of exploring the USVI and BVI was the genuine hospitality and kindness extended to all of us. We felt spoiled and at home from day one to the very end. You truly made the trip better. It's not everyday that we meet people like you both and we feel lucky to have spent time aboard the yacht with you! I think it's safe to say we will be back to the Islands and would love to sail with you again. Until next time we meet be safe and enjoy the sun, the sea and the sand (and the dolphins) We can't thank you enough for making with the best week of the year. All the best to you both.
Our hosts exceeded our expectations day by day. We dined like royals, explored like Columbus, swam like mermaids. The ship felt like a 5 star accommodation with views like in paradise. All in all, a vacation of a lifetime. Thank you so much for everything.
