One of the best ways to enjoy the beauty of our island waters is from below. The waters are clear and warm and the abundance of lively, colorful marine life is spectacular. Whether you’re already a certified SCUBA diver or would like to become one, diving from your own private yacht is pure diver’s joy. If you want to become a certified diver, it’s recommended that you complete your book work at home and save your check out dives for our clear blue waters.
Some yachts offer a “Resort Course” designed to give non-certified divers a taste of the wonders beneath the water’s surface. All yachts offer different deals with some including the cost of diving in the charter rate while others charge a per dive fee or for gear rental.
Below are just some of the yachts that cater to divers. It’s time to get wet and blow some bubbles. Enjoy!
