Two Caribbean Itineraries

In the Northeastern Caribbean we have 2 itineraries, depending on the week you choose to dive with us. We depart alternate weeks from St. Maarten and St. Kitts. If you choose a charter which begins in St. Maarten, the charter will end in St. Kitts and you will fly home from there. If you choose a charter that begins in St. Kitts, the charter will end in St. Maarten and that will be your return location.

Sample Northern Caribbean Itineraries

Days aboard the vessel generally involve breakfast from 7 to 8 am (cold breakfasts are available for late risers), followed by two morning dives, lunch at 12:30 pm, two afternoon dives, dinner at 6:30 pm, and a night dive. Island tours will be arranged at each island visited for those interested; further island access is available daily upon request. Please note that these itineraries are examples only, and will change depending on weather and logistics at the Captain's discretion.

Please plan to be in St. Maarten by 4pm on the date of departure in order to facilitate the vessel’s clearance and timely departure for Saba. If you’re arriving at 3pm or later, please send us a copy of your passport prior to your departure. If meeting the vessel in St. Maarten, look for our driver upon exiting the baggage claim area; if no one is present, simply catch a cab to Bobby's Marina in Philipsburg; the vessel will be located near the end of the dock.
