April 2018 – British Virgin Islands

Cuan Law Liveaboard – British Virgin Islands

April 15 – 21, 2018

boatLiveaboards are perfect for those who want to eat, sleep, and dive. They are the most relaxing way to get away; removed from all of the screens in our everyday life. While the Cuan Law definitely focuses on eating incredible food, getting a relaxing snooze, and diving one of the most beautiful areas in the world, they also want everyone to have the best experience possible. This is by no means a “roughing it” or “camping on the water” kind of trip. It is a luxurious vessel offering top notch customer service in one of the most beautiful areas of the Caribbean.

This is by far the best way to enjoy the British Virgin Islands. The Cuan Law is a 105 ft long trimaran that sails out of Tortola for a Sunday to Saturday trip. Each cabin is equipped with a double bed or two twin beds. Each room has their own shower and a standard, “land-type” toilet. There is plenty of storage space, and a surprising amount of room in these cabins. There is also individually controlled a/c in each room or natural ventilation through the large windows. Connecting all of the rooms is the main saloon, a spacious area with plenty of seating and  is considered the social hub of the boat, with a large bar and tables. The saloon leads into the cockpit deck where you will have all of your incredible meals. You may also enjoy your meals on the aft deck; an area with wrecka permanent awning that is perfect for an oceanfront view and all of the dive briefings. Finally the top deck of the boat has hammocks for enjoying a good book or taking a relaxing nap.  All the islands have something different to offer; snorkeling, diving, picturesque beaches, pirate history, and friendly bars where you can really start to enjoy your vacation. The BVIs are known for their beautiful islands and this gives you a chance to see so many of them! Unlike enjoying your stay on one island, this way you get to experience so much more! There is a lot to be seen on these dive sites, including, leatherback turtles, pelagic fish, eagle rays, and sharks.

beachSalt island has some of the best diving in the area. The coral is in great condition and there are fish and turtles everywhere. This island includes the wreck of the RMS Rhone. Considered one of the best wrecks in the world, The Royal Mail Steamship Rhone was commissioned for the Royal Mail Packet Company in 1865 to carry mail and passengers from England to the Caribbean. It was a unique boat in that it had both sails and a boiler. On October 29th, 1867, the boiler became it’s downfall. While stuck in a hurricane near Salt Island, the captain ordered the boiler be turned on and as the ship took on water the boiler exploded, cutting it into two pieces. The vessel now rests in two sections; one near salt island and the other by Black Rock. An entire day of diving is dedicated to this site, partly because you will not want to miss the gorgeous reef that comes to life at night. “cup corals and sponges turn the main compartment into a kaleidoscope of orange and yellow.”
