All-inclusive Caribbean scuba diving charters offer you the convenience and personalization of diving from your own private yacht, complete with captain and gourmet chef. No schedules, no crowds - just you, your dive buddies and your exclusive divemaster or instructor. So what criteria do we use to select the Ten Best Caribbean Scuba Diving Charters?
Although there are numerous charter yachts that offer casual diving for certified divers, the yachts we selected for our ten best have made a serious investment in fully equipping themselves to offer a turnkey dive experience. Most have an onboard compressor and all of the necessary gear - tanks, BCs, regulators, weights, etc. At least one of the crew members is a dive master, and some even have instructors which allow them to offer an introductory scuba resort course for new divers as well as certification. Beyond that, they have lots of other things for non-divers to do. Plus diving does not pre-empt superb food and service.
