Most crewed charters provide for snorkeling, and rendezvous diving
is available through dive companies whereby divers are picked up right off the charter
boat. However, a more limited number emphasis scuba
diving as part of the charter voyage. Often the crew will include a
divemaster/instructor and the boat will emphasize diving, but nicely balance diving with
other activities--these boats are listed under Emphasis on
Boats whose primary activity is
scuba diving are called Liveaboards, a term associated with hard-core
dive boats, but the BVI liveaboards engage in a lot of other activites as well.
