Scuba Diving in the British Virgin Islands is a marvelous activity to add to your sailing vacation!

Cuan Law makes it easy to explore the underwater world by Scuba diving.

Among the talented crew are two Scuba Instructors and additional Dive Masters. You can take a short Introduction to Scuba course if you are a beginner in a very 'no Pressure' environment. Or guides are available, if you wish, for a qualified diver. Our instructors can also do 'referrals' and more advanced courses. Should you need to rent equipment, we arrange for that to be on board when you arrive.

Dives are planned each day to your requests but leave plenty of time In between for kayaking, Hobie Cat sailing, snorkeling and beach trips or just relaxing in a hammock with a cool drink. When they hear dive bell ring, those interested in the next dive gather for a briefing on the aft deck.

Dive briefings are very detailed, using the illustrations we have of each site. If you are on an Introduction Course, your depth is restricted to 40 feet.

The crew handle your dive gear aboard Cuan Law – simply hand your gear to the dive crew before the first dive and they look after it from there. You just step up to the waist-high tank deck, where a member of the crew has your tank waiting for you to slip into your BC. From there you either enter the water from the aft deck or board the tender. At the end of the dive, you step up to the tank deck and the crew take your equipment is taken by the crew to be washed and filled for the next dive and stored away - a lot like checking your coat at a restaurant! Masks, snorkels and personal dive accessories are stored in your individual dive bins located under the seating area, keeping the cockpit clutter free.

We always give you a full tank aboard Cuan Law. There are two quiet electric air compressors as well as a Nitrox plant efficiently pumping the 3,000 psi aluminum tanks of various sizes to suit your breathing rate and body size.

The water temperature is about 78°F in winter. If you want to take part in a night dive, make sure you bring a light. We also have lights available for purchase in the "Boatique".

There are fresh water shower hoses located at the back of the deck to use after your swim or dive.
