Rendezvous Diving From Our Dive Boats
What is rendezvous diving? Rendezvous diving means that guests sail to their desired destination and we’ll bring our boat, staff and dive equipment to pick them up there. Non-divers can remain in sheltered anchorages and sleep, sunbathe, kayak or snorkel while they wait for the divers to return.
Rendezvous with us at the following locations: Norman Island, Peter Island, Cooper Island, Marina Cay, Trellis Bay and others on request. Our varied and convenient pick up points enable you to dive nearby hot spots such as the wreck of the RMS Rhone, the Indians, the Dogs, and all of the other popular sites as well. With 70+ dive/snorkel sites, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
Step aboard "Endeavour", the Queen of our fleet, a 46 foot custom-built dive boat by Newton Boats. She is equipped with a camera table, fresh water showers, head and spacious dive platform.
"Discovery", the Princess of our fleet, is a 36 foot custom built Newton Dive Boat and is equipped with all the same amenities as Endeavour. Equally spacious, she is well suited for smaller groups and private charters.
Other dive vessels include two identical 26 foot Newton dive boats "Atlantis & Explorer", with inboard diesel engines. These boats are perfect for small group, customized diving (2-6 divers)and private charters. View more pictures of our extremely clean and well maintained boats in the Photo Gallery
Our Scuba Equipment Is Your Scuba Equipment
All equipment is provided at no charge for rendezvous divers on board our boats. We offer well-maintained, modern Aqualung Scuba Equipment. Divers are welcome to bring their own equipment, but it’s not required. With today’s airline luggage fees, we know you won’t be disappointed.
For those who aren’t going to rendezvous with our dive boats and wish to dive independently – consider renting! We have complete Scuba equipment available for daily or weekly rental. Rent items individually or as a package. We offer free delivery to marinas on Tortola. Rentals can also be picked up and dropped off at Hodges Creek Marina, Road Town, Cooper Island, and Norman Island.
With our multiple locations, there is no need to pay for additional days of rental when you won't be using the equipment. Rent from Road Town & return to Norman Island or Cooper Island. Rent from one of our satellite facilities & return to Hodges Creek Marina or your marina on Tortola. It's convenient! It saves you money!
Proof of certification with any recognized agency is required for all certified divers joining our boats and for all equipment rentals. Reserve your rendezvous dives or equipment early.
