Yacht description

Scuba Doo 50 is a 4-cabin Lagoon 500 which is a really popular design for chartering providing good options for up to four couples, but is ideal for 3 couples.

The interior of the yacht is very modern and light. The salon flows seamlessly into the cockpit so lots of space and a lovely outdoor dining option with comfy seats for relaxing in the cockpit.

Forward is the very popular foredeck lounge area which is the perfect place to relax in the evenings with a cocktail in your hand. There is also a flybridge, which has a seating and sunbathing area behind the steering position.

    Thank you for an incredible experience aboard the Scuba Doo Yacht Charter! From the moment we set sail, Kris & Aneta’s warmth and hospitality created a welcoming atmosphere that made our USVI trip unforgettable.

    They went above and beyond in all aspects of the trip, from recommending the best snorkelling & dive spots to finding the perfect mooring ball in the cove for us to spend the night. The attention to detail and care they put into everything they do was greatly appreciated!

    Aneta prepared delicious and beautifully plated meals & desserts for us each day – accompanied by the ocean breeze, you can’t beat it! Also, a must do on Scuba Doo was setting up the floating dock to enjoy the sunsets while sipping on some of Kris’s signature Painkiller cocktails!

    And finally, I had the opportunity to complete my Open Water Dive certification course with Kris. He was an amazing instructor, ensuring I felt safe and showed us some of USVI’s best dive sites. We saw a ship wreck, lots of fish, turtles, stingrays, and a nurse shark!

    Thank you both again for an amazing trip!

    We have just returned from a tremendously memorable trip to USVI with Scuba Doo! Kris and Aneta were the most welcoming crew and they had pampered us with delicious food, drinks, and activities. We had always woken up to the fragrant smell of breakfast. You could expect freshly baked waffles or cinnamon buns on the table waiting for you. Kris took us around different parts of the islands and we had the opportunity to see all sorts of sea life as well as landscapes. As a Jack of all trades, he could be a Captain, a chef, and a fisherman. He caught a black fin tuna on our trip and fed us the best grilled tuna steak for dinner. He also made sure we had a worry-free trip as he worked tirelessly around the boat to ensure all parts of the boat are well maintained. There was not a part of the trip I did not thoroughly enjoy and call it once in a lifetime experience. A hundred percent recommend Scuba Doo for your next family vacation!

    It’s been a week since our BVI catamaran vacation aboard the Scuba Doo. The vacation high is over, and I finally have time to relay our thoughts. As soon as we three couples boarded Scuba Doo, we knew it was going to be an epic week. Several of us had previously been on a catamaran in the BVI two other times through other companies. We knew what to expect, and what we preferred to do…or so we thought.

    Kris and Aneta – WOW – you two were beyond amazing! Your attention to detail, sharing of stories and finding new places for us to explore exceeded our expectations. We had just enough activities and relaxation times to please the entire group. Snorkeling and floating at the Caves and Indians and also at two coves new to us was perfect. The two divers of the group were able to get their fill of diving without interfering with the rest of the group plans. “Bubbles Up!” Kris was also patient and attentive when one of us went on a discovery dive for the first time. Aneta and Kris also know their way around the kitchen! We did not go hungry and thoroughly enjoyed all the meals, and treats in the ‘Dome of Yum’. Our highlights are The Baths, Conch Island Tour in Anegada and Saba Rock. Kris and Aneta were troopers for our White Party wine tasting dinner and Scuby Doo night. Oh the laughs!

    Thank you for a truly magical week!

  • The Richards Family

    Thank you Aneta & Kris for an amazing vacation and charter we’ll never forget! The diving was beyond words from the night dive to the lobsters amd so much more. The food was so delicious and I hope to cook as well as you back home. We loved playing in the water and getting to learn about the islands and sailing on the bridge. We hope to come back again because you guys are so great! Thank you so so much for making this charter so magical.

  • Kris & Aneta,
    Thank you for an amazing honeymoon/family vacation excursion in the USVI/BVI’s. The diving & dining experience was absolutely top notch. This was Sonya & Kings first catamaran trip and we definitely want to do this again – and hopefully with you as our crew! We appreciated the attention to detail, hospitality and friendly yet professional approach. We highly recommend Scuba Doo & crew to anyone wanting a beautiful holiday in the Caribbean!

    P.S. The best cuisine ever!

    Aneta was amazing – presentation & quality at meals was as food as any high end restaurant – outstanding!

    Capt Kris – thank you for the amazing dives! you helped us feel totally comfortable with a group of beginners to advanced levels. Thanks for making our diving and boat experience the best!

    Kris and Aneta, thanks for making my graduation trip so so special it has meant the world to me and I will never forget this.
    Love Karli and Bryce

  • Many, many thanks for an incredible trip through the BVI! The adventure itself was unforgettable but it was the food, drinks and service that took the experience to the next level! You two make an awesome team. Stay in touch and let us know if you are ever in socal! Then we can take you on a boat or two!
    Love Whit

    You are the friendliest, most capable crew in the Caribbean ☺️ The food was amazing – not only the crazy amazing flavor – but how do you do that in that tiny kitchen?! Cocktail hour was always spot on. No one can agree on what was best, mojitos, Manhattans, passion fruit margaritas or bushwhackers.

    How good was the 50th birthday celebration? Perfect! It is now the birthday by which all other birthdays will be measured. Where else can you get a champagne toast and a light up squid hat? Only on Scuba Doo.

    Diving from the boat every day was a huge highlight. You found dive sites that were a great fit for our group and made it work with all the best island side trips. Your activity recommendations were on point!!! From hikes to dives to cocktails!

    Thank you so much,

  • Thank you for a beautiful and memorable adventure! This was a once in a lifetime experience that we will remember forever. We are so thankful for the amount of thought places into the location and activities every single day. The hard work and amazing food could never be better. Speaking on Grace & Liam’s behalf, this trip gave them an insight on what hard work and kindness look like. Grace has always wanted to sail, but now more than ever she really wants to! Both of you have made us feel at home even in close quarters. Thank you again for an amazing week and fantastic Easter!
    Fondly, Chris, Bridget, Grace & Liam

    Words cannot express our gratitude for all you have done for us. Being our first time on an adventure such as this, we were not sure what to expect. The two of you made this trip truly extraordinary. As a family, we have been fortunate to have traveled to many places. This trip has certainly tanked at the top. You went above and beyond to ensure we got the most of our short time onboard. The experiences you provided; the unbelievable meals (and gluten free!), the sailing, the snorkeling & diving, the wake-boarding, all of it was truly the most memorable. We all so appreciate all your hard work. I am sure as Grace and Liam look back at their childhood, this trip will surely be a high point, if not the highest. With that Bridget & I are so thankful. We all wish both of you all the best in your future.

    Sincerely & with tremendous gratitude,
    Chris & Bridget

    Another day in paradise! This was an incredible week and time went by way too quickly. I easily got used to the morning swim, endless snorkeling, and the most amazing food. The diving was rich with beautiful coral, fish, lobsters, turtles, and rays. We loved the peaceful sailing, made even more fantastic by the playful dolphin that visited us. The captains’ cocktails were a treat – from painkillers to espresso martinis.

    You are both amazing at what you do! You were informative before the trip and your guidance during the trip made everyday filled with fun. Your energy and positivity is a joy to be around! We will miss your home in paradise and are left wanting more! Kiki’s 5th Pirate Birthday Party was the cutest!

    This trip was absolutely amazing! Thank you!

  • Kris & Aneta, you guys are the best!! The hospitality, adventures, food, seamanship, stories and advice were all amazing. Thank you for taking such good care of all of us and ensuring that we had one of the best vacays of our lives! Hoping to see you both again sooner rather than later!!!

    Take care, be safe, and thank you again!
    Justin & Kelly

    Thank you so much for this incredible trip! We made so many great memories and had so much fun! I loved the Bathes, taco bar and great food! You both have taught me so much more about sailing! We will always remember this amazing trip! Thank you for this great vacation!

  • Captain Kris and Anetta were fantastic on all aspects. The boat was amazing – super-comfortable and well-equipped. I loved the layout of the salon, with the u-shaped sofa and middle console. We had all meals out on the deck – never really used the salon but I liked the open floor plan that made it seem more spacious. All of our rooms were comfortable with good mattresses and nice, efficient bathrooms.

    The food was delicious – and it wasn’t easy with our dietary preferences and restrictions. All meals were delicious and well-presented. Anetta did a great job making Maddie’s meals replicate ours but vegan. And she even baked a chocolate birthday cake for Lauren (along with presenting her with a bottle of champagne and a map of the BVI with our journey charted on it). So thoughtful. Kris and Anetta joined us for dinner at Saba Rock one evening and it was much fun.

    We snorkeled a ton – saw some sea turtles, sting rays, lots of amazing fish, including a few barracuda, awesome coral. Kris helped a fisherman rescue an Eagle ray from his net that Jay and Maddie found while kayaking – a happy ending to a potential for a bad outcome.

    We hit great beaches and some of our top must-sees – Norman Island, Willy T’s (where Jay became somewhat famous for doing about 8 backflips from the top deck – people we saw at other islands said “Hey, you’re the backflip dude!”) the Baths, Cooper Island, the bubbly pools, the North Sound, and Caneel Bay.

    It was an amazing week and something we will all remember for a very long time. Thank you for everything you did to make it happen and make it amazing.
