Samambaia Liveaboard hosted 2016 UW 360 Expedition

If you have a dive club, group of divers, a family or friends, rent a yacht could be the best solution. In fact having a boat in exclusivity you can choose the return and departure dates closest to your needs, you can define the route and your favorite dive points, visiting the best areas calmly, unlike an ordinary programmed trip with other passengers. You can also combine diving with snorkeling, fishing, kayaking, water skiing, trips to the islands and beaches.

Rent a yacht is the ideal solution for families or groups who have different interests than diving. You can request your favorite food and beverages, as well as preparing special arrangements to private celebrations and events. Often a group estimate is able to get a cheaper quote. Sailboats dedicated to dive cruises must be booked in advance, as soon as they are reserved by customers for a regular cruise program, may no longer be available exclusively. Usually privatise a boat cruise gives you a "free" passage on board, compared to normal charging. However if you are have a dive center or a diving school your diving instructor or divemaster following the group, can get more "free" spaces.
