Inside tips for your divesailcation
So you’ve booked that dream divesailcation. Now it’s time to get ready for this amazing adventure. We’ve got some tips below that will ensure you have everything you’ll need to frolic in the underwater playground.
What to Pack for Diving?
We hear your packing light and that’s the perfect plan for a care free divesailcation. While there’s not much that needs to make it in your bag, we do have a few suggestions to make sure your kit is complete.
The uses for a good dive bootie are truly endless, protect your feet from rocks on every adventure and create the perfect fit for our MARES Avanti Quattro Plus open foot rental fins. For a great all around, affordable bootie check out the Mares Equator 2mm Dive Boots on Amazon.
Rashguard and Wet Suit.
The waters we dive in range from mid 70°’s to high 80°’s (F). That said, it’s best to check in with us on current water temperatures for your trip dates. In general, we typically wear a light dive tight and rash guard or a 1.5 mm suit. Some folks run colder so it’s hard to advise on specifics for your body but typically no more then a 2/3mm wetsuit are desired by most guests that dive in the Caribbean.
All divers must have a personal dive computer to participate on dives. Some exceptions and rental availability do apply for Discover Scuba and PADI Open Water Certification. Please be sure to contact us in advance on these exceptions so we can discuss the required gear for your dive experience.
If you are looking for a great intro dive computer with some very useful features check out the SUUNTO Vyper Novo Lite Computer available on Amazon. Available for a very reasonable price, this computer includes a built in compass as well as the ability to add air integration.
When does my eLearning need to be complete?

When you arrive we will confirm all online assessments have been completed and will cover a brief knowledge review of key eLearning topics as well as any questions on the materials.

“Sailing with Kate and Cyrus was an incredibly memorable experience. Every night we enjoyed another bay to snorkel- kayak and enjoy an wonderful sunset, eating wholesome, freshly made delicious dinners.Rhonda K.Oakville, Ontario
Everything was fabulous and therefore there are no complaints.
You do want to be comfortable on the water, during our day excursions we had fun but at times we bounced around.
Would I do this again - absolutely- would I recommend to friends- I have many times already. We will defiantly catch up with Kate and Cyrus in a different location.”
“Thanks again Kate and Cyrus for an amazing week cruising in the BVI we’ll never forget. Can’t recommend highly enough for families looking for a luxury holiday ‘out of the ordinary’. From jumping off the Willy T to swimming with turtles, every day was an adventure! Hopefully we’ll get to return soon.”Mike R.Esher, England

When it comes to hospitality and meals they are an A+ plus plus. The food was was amazing and I feel like I have lifelong friends now. I would definitely recommend them to all of my family and friends.”Jennell G.Elk River, MN
“Snorkeling, swimming and great food!Lorraine P.Harrisville, Rhode Island
If you enjoy boating and water activities you should consider chartering a custom cruise with Kate and Cyrus @ CruiseNautic.com. They designed an itinerary specific to our group's interests and abilities. We relaxed as we sailed to tropical islands, swam snorkeled and kayaked in crystal clear aquamarine waters and visited unique island destinations.
Their catamaran was a beautiful new vessel with comfortable living spaces skillfully sailed by its owners.
Kate and Cyrus were wonderful hosts catering to our every need. Kate was constantly chopping fresh ingredients to make each meal an event. Cyrus wowed us nightly with his desserts.
We highly recommend chartering with CruiseNautic. It will be a vacation you will never forget!”
