Caribbean - Liveaboards


The Caribbean has something to offer everyone and one of our most popular diving regions after the Red Sea. For many, the Caribbean epitomizes luxury in an idyllic setting, for divers it offers so much more.

Surprising and enchanting, visit underwater sculpture parks, varied wreck dives & coral gardens. Experience fast and thrilling drift dives & cave diving. The Caribbean Sea is the right choice for the novice & the tekkie diver with its ample choice of shore and boat dive sites, resorts, dive centers & liveaboards.

Each island has an individual character and feeling but always offering a warm, friendly welcome, exotic food, tropical fruit and fresh seafood. Mix this up with a sundowner and lively music against a backdrop of cobalt blue skies and you’ll want to return before you leave.
