My wife and I first sailed and dove on the Cuan Law 28 years ago. We had a great time, and returned for a second trip a decade later. Again, we had a wonderful week. Now that our sons are in their 20s, and seasoned SCUBA divers, we decided to share the experience with them, and we could not be happier with our decision.
We all had a superb week. Everything about a trip on the Cuan Law is just “right.” For starter, the crew is amazing. From the moment you board the Cuan Law, you have no choice but to relax. The first thing that happens is your shoes come off, and go into a storage container for the duration of the trip. (You don’t need them onboard, and it actually was a bit depressing to put them on when it was time to end our trip.) The crew members are attentive without feeling intrusive. You want a dive guide? Great, you have a dive guide. You want to go on your own with your dive buddy? That works too.They are constantly working to keep the ship, and your stateroom, clean and organized, but never seem to be underfoot.
If you want or need anything, and there is a way to get it, they will make it happen. And the food is Amazing. Patrick is a magician. Every meal had the look, taste and presentation of a top Michelin starred restaurant. The diving is typical Caribbean Diving. Generally good visibility, with low to moderate currents. Not too deep. And if the weather allows, there are several world class wreck that the Cuan Law will visit. We were able to dive the Rhone and Chikuzen, both outstanding dive sites. When you are not diving, there are water toys available. Hobie cats, sea kayaks, paddleboards, water skis, and more. You can be as busy as you want, or you can flop down in a hammock on the huge deck, and read a book. (My choice, while the boys were out getting dragged across the water on kneeboards.)
Overall, we could not have been more pleased with our time on the Cuan Law. She is a great vessel for people who want to dive, but also want to do other things on their trip, and she is crewed by an outstanding team that goes out of their way to insure you have a great time. We can’t wait to return.
