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/instructors on board.  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.

Hard To Put Our Joy Into Words


It’s hard to put into words how amazing that trip was, but I will try. Here are some thoughts:


First off, the crew was amazing. The captain is great; a wealth of knowledge and experience, great sense of humor, patient (especially with the teenaged boys) and kind. I enjoyed talking with him and thought he took a real interest in our group, which was a bit diverse. He was extremely attentive to everyone on the boat, always asking if we needed anything, and even serving coffee. I didn’t expect that level of service from the captain, but the best thing about him was just talking with him. The deckhand, was a real pleasure. Everyone loved her, the adults and kids. She was fun to dive with and was awesome keeping the little and big kids happy on the water. Very patient and helpful at all times! Since she was always around on deck, I seemed to talk with her the most. I could just tell through our conversations that she is just a really nice, amazing person. A special shout out to the crew for putting up with little kids (8-9 yrs old), teenage boys, and my daughter’s boyfriend who I even find annoying! And, my brother-in-law and I could be just as childish as the kids sometimes too!


The boat was very nice. It was well-kept and clean. Sailing was a lot of fun and we enjoyed when the captain put up the sails and aloud us all to help with driving. I’m not sure we could ever do another boat after experiencing the Tranquility.


The weather was mostly awesome other than some clouds the first day and a bit rougher seas that day. However, it was mostly sunshine all week and very calm.


I thought the captain did a great job designing a route to allow for great diving, but also allow the non-divers get in the water and have fun. We also loved the bars we stopped at – Willy T, Saba Rock, Bitter End, Foxy’s Taboo, Foxy’s, Ivan’s, Soggy Dollar. We also went to the Baths. It feels like we went everywhere anyone would want to go, some places I haven’t even mentioned. I’m not sure what we could have missed.


Highlights:


o Seeing constant smiles on my youngest son’s face all week, as well as his two cousins of similar ages. It was a real joy seeing the 3 of them enjoy the water so much all week long.


o Spending quality time with my brother and sister in law all week that I don’t see that often. I would say the same for the time I spent with my college friend.


o Just sailing from anchorage to anchorage, enjoying the scenery, and mostly relaxing with my wife during those times. We also would find time alone in the morning with our coffee/tea before the rest of our group woke up. The mornings before breakfast when it was quiet was awesome.


o Multiple dives and snorkeling


o Foxy’s and Soggy Dollar


o Best painkiller goes either to Foxy’s Taboo or Andrea on the boat. All were good though and we tried them all! My brother-in-law tried to tell me Ivan’s was the best, but I couldn’t trust his judgement at that point in the day…


Everyone from my group loved the experience. The BVIs are more amazing than I really even thought. Sailing was even more fun than I thought. At the end of the day, the crew made the experience. I couldn’t imagine being stuck on a boat all week with a crew that had a different approach. Thanks so much!

Spectacular Time

Thank you so much for a spectacular time! Although I arrived home to a full house and Thanksgiving preparations, how could we not miss the warm Caribbean and pampering we received on the Southern Comfort! From the time we arrived on the boat until the time we had to leave, you made our trip exceed any expectations that I conjured up in my mind. The catamaran was very well maintained and beautiful. A great vessel for respite from the daily grind.
The sailing, snorkeling, hiking, diving and swimming were just the adventures that our group were looking for. The crew were great Captains, cruise directors, chefs and staff. We were all amazed at the spectacular service provided to 8 people by just the 2 of you. The food was so delicious and diverse. Quite a feat in a small kitchen! You are quite an amazing chef. I’m still waiting for the cookbook! Everything you served was fresh, flavorful and visually delightful! A foodie paradise, if you will. I would highly recommend this experience to everyone. You both made our first sailing experience an extraordinary adventure!Thank you for everything and please keep in touch. You are wonderful people who we really enjoy and admire. Take care and have a healthy happy holiday season.

Fabulous Trip!

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!

Magnificent

It's hard to find words that accurately describe my experience which don't sound like generic exclamations or empty superlatives. Amazing. Magnificent. Splendid. Awesome. These are all passable and yet, somehow only hint at what I felt during our week-long journey in the BVIs. The crew are very special. Both are smart, experienced, funny, skillful, caring, knowledgeable, and charming. Extremely capable apart, yet a fantastic team together. I will forever measure other boat crews against them - my litmus test for how it should be. The chef just knocked it out of the park when it came to food. Not only was her menu selection spot-on with our tastes, her execution was among the very best - especially considering it all came from a tiny kitchen rocking to and fro! She is also a very competent first mate - always at the ready to moor the boat, furl a sail, help a diver out of the water, batten down the hatches, or drop the anchor. The always affable captain was a diligent and discerning captain as well as divemaster. He excelled at making decisions to maximize both our enjoyment and our safety. With a diverse group on board - some divers, some snorkelers, some landlubbers, etc - it was no small task for him to select pleasure stops, land excursions, and overnight anchors/moors that suited everyone, but did so with aplomb. Plus, he makes the *best* painkillers 😉 This was my first trip to the BVIs. I wasn't sure what to expect in the aftermath of hurricane Irma but let me be the one to tell you that the spirit of the people that work these waters and live on these islands, is indomitable. It may not be the same as it was a year ago, but those changes did nothing to attenuate our joy of being there. In closing, let me not try to wrest more-nuanced adjectives from the English language and just simply say what really matters. We had so much fun. We were happy. We laughed. We marveled. We dove and ate and sailed and soaked up the sun. And we made new friends. This trip was perfect.
