What is a Scuba Diving Yacht Charter?

A scuba diving yacht charter offers an unparalleled level of exploration and comfort, unlike any regular yacht charter. With this type of charter, your captain takes you to hidden coves and premier dive sites; still considering your safety while maximizing your underwater experience. In addition, you are provided with personalized instruction while others even have crew members who are also PADI-certified divers. The boat is also equipped with top-of-the-line scuba diving gear.

Meanwhile, a regular crewed yacht charter only allows guests to lounge on sun decks, enjoy gourmet meals onboard, and access luxurious cabins. Entertainment systems and other amenities are available but may not cater specifically to a scuba diving experience that adds more excitement to your sailing vacation.

What are the Benefits of Going on a Scuba Diving Yacht Charter?

Instead of joining a crowded dive boat, you can book a scuba diving yacht charter for ultimate privacy. It is ultimately a luxurious way to experience the Caribbean Ocean.

So, here are just a few reasons why it should be your next adventure:

  • The experienced captain and crew can cater to your needs, making it a truly bespoke experience.
  • Your professional dive crew can ensure your safety and provide top-of-the-line equipment, whether for beginner or advanced scuba divers.
  • A scuba diving yacht charter serves as a tranquil retreat in the comfort of spacious sun decks while savoring gourmet meals onboard.
  • A luxurious scuba diving yacht charter provides uninterrupted dive exploration and personalized service.
  • Unlike a typical dive boat, your private scuba diving yacht charter allows you to access uncrowded and hidden underwater gems.

What are the Top 3 Destinations for Scuba Diving Yacht Charters?

The British Virgin Islands (BVIs) are a yachting paradise. Moreso, it is a different kind of playground for scuba diving enthusiasts which is even special when you are on a private yacht charter.

Here are three top destinations to consider for your bespoke BVI scuba diving yacht charter:

  1. Wreck of the Rhone, Salt Island: This legendary shipwreck, a former British cargo vessel, is a must-see for any diver.
  2. The Baths, Virgin Gorda: It is a breathtaking series of granite boulders and tide pools. It is a wonderland for divers and snorkelers alike.
  3. Norman Island and Nearby Cays: Norman Island, which was behind the novel “Treasure Island,” boasts various dive sites.

Beyond these top picks, other islands in the BVI offer numerous dive sites, and coral gardens teeming with colorful fish.

What are the Boats Available for a Scuba Diving Yacht Charter?

True North

As Captain Whitey says, “Don’t forget that we enthusiastically dive from TRUE NORTH.”  Whitey is a PADI Dive Instructor, Max is the Dive Master, and Drew and Sara are your able crew. You can dive directly from the boat, or some guests can dive while others are snorkeling, kayaking, or kicking back in the bean bag chairs and enjoying their favorite cocktails.  

As you can see, a scuba diving yacht charter is the way to go. This can be done in the British Virgin Islands, St. Lucia, or the Grenadines. Discussing your options with your charter yacht broker is important, so please do so. The British Virgin Islands offers many dive sites where you can also snorkel. Sites are usually visited for 45 – 60 minutes before moving on to the next anchorage, beach, or site.
