The British Virgin Islands is renowned not just for sailing but also for its scuba diving, and Nicholson Yacht Charters represents several crewed boats that offer the option to those certified in the sport. The boats, catamarans from 40 feet to more than 75 feet, are equipped with compressors, buoyancy control devices and regulators. Some boats also have dive instructors who offer the resort course to noncertified divers. Noncertified divers can also enroll in a dive class before they depart, then complete their open-water dives aboard to become certified divers. For details and rates contact Nicholson Yacht Charters.
