If your crewed charter yacht does not offer onboard diving then fear not, rendezvous diving can be arranged.
So what is Rendezvous diving?
A local dive company will pick you up direct from your charter yacht at a pre-determined location and take you for a one- or two-tank dive to experience the BVI below the water. This is an excellent option if only a couple of guests wish to dive or can work equally as well if all your group are interested. If your charter yacht offers minimal onboard diving, then rendezvous diving can also work if you wanted to add a few more dives during your charter.
Rendezvous diving is at additional cost, payable locally. The dive company provides all gear.
