Blessed with warm brilliantly clear waters, an abundance of coral, and unparalleled sea life, a yachting holiday in the Caribbean offers prime opportunities for Scuba diving enthusiasts to embark on unforgettable underwater adventures. Each and every day during their stay on board guests can discover new and fascinating sites exploring vertical wall terrains, magnificent wrecks, and the habitats of both small tropical reef fish and larger marine creatures like eagle rays, stingrays, nurse sharks, and hammerheads. Here are a few of the top yacht charter destinations in the Caribbean for diving:
British Virgin Islands
The British Virgin Islands are home to one of the most celebrated diving sites in the Caribbean, the famed wreck of the HMS Rhone. Broken in two, the 310-foot long, 40-foot wide ship lies just off of Salt Island near Tortola and is packed with schools of fish, sponges and corals.
Grenada is the perfect yacht charter destination for advanced divers. In addition to spectacular reefs, there is a full range of deep-water wreck sites including the largest shipwreck in the Caribbean. Highlights include the Hema I (90 feet), Shakem (100 feet) and the 600-foot former Italian luxury cruise liner Bianca C (165 feet).
On the volcanic island of Saba, there are no beaches but right below the surface of its dramatic coastline lies a heavenly oasis waiting to be discovered. Blessed with some of the Caribbean’s richest marine life, divers will encounter underwater lava flows, striking coral encrusted boulder, over 150 species of fish, and extraordinary sea creatures like the whale shark.
Bonaire is a pristine Caribbean yacht charter destination that is unsurpassed in its natural beauty. Famous for over 50 easily accessible shore dives, the island is home to the Caribbean’s No. 1 reef for fish diversity with 394 different species, Bari Reef and is perfect for novice divers.
Boasting of one of the largest barrier reefs on the planet, second in size only to the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, Belize is a top world-class dive destination. Spanning 3,000 square miles of protected waters, the spectacular marine life surrounding the 190-mile-long Mesoamerican Reef is truly astounding.
