What is Rendezvous Diving?
Rendezvous diving means that you sail to your desired destination and we’ll bring our boat, staff and dive equipment to you. Our professional staff will lead you on a guided tour of the BVI’s best dive sites all the while monitoring your dive profiles and air consumption. They’ll handle the navigation and point out interesting creatures for you as well.
As we like to say, all you have to do is swim, breathe and have fun! All of our dive guides carry magnetic slates so that fish/creature identification can easily be made and communicated to our divers.
Why cram several sets of dive gear into your charter boat and try to find the best sites when a simple call to Dive BVI brings everything to you? We use new Scubapro BCDs and regulators for our diving equipment. You can sail around as you please and we’ll carry the heavy stuff. If you have your own gear, we’ll gladly use our freshwater hose on-board our boats to rinse your equipment after diving. We can even provide you with Nitrox tanks if you have proof of Nitrox certification.
Our goal is to make your diving safer and your enjoyment greater. Our staff is very experienced and very knowledgeable about fish ID, coral conservation and BVI history. They look forward to showing you the beauty of the BVI.
