If you’re passionate about fishing, a seasoned Scuba diver or someone with a strong interest looking to learn the skill, then the Caribbean and Bahamas luxury yacht charter grounds have something perfect for you. Not only are there big game fish in the crystal clear waters, but eye-catching coral and fish species, historic wrecks, mysterious seascapes and artificial reefs made from concrete statues.
The best way to freely roam to see it all is by luxury yacht, and the five vessels below have an exemplar reputation with Scuba and fishing programmes available on board.
Christensen superyacht REMEMBER WHEN boasts a sundeck Jacuzzi, sumptuous bathtubs in the en-suite cabins, a large selection of water toys and a gym to indulge guests and keep them active even during a cruise. The elegant surroundings are perfect for hosting a party in the salon or skylounge, and everyone can take their time to recover the next day by resting on the innumerable sunbeds in the wonderful Bahamas sunshine.
The incredible creations from the on board chef will delight at every opportunity and make special occasions all the more memorable while catering to the allergies and dietary requirements of all guests.
The US Virgin Islands are a great stop for deep sea fishing to catch marlin, sail fish and much more, while a short cruise east will take the group to the RHMS RHONE, considered the best dive site in the Caribbean.
Another Christensen luxury yacht makes it onto the list with LADY JOY, a fantastic choice for wedding celebrations and parties over Christmas and New Year because of her rich classic interiors, spacious sundeck and choice amenities.
The nights and days will be filled with memories made as guests sing karaoke, entertain with the piano, chat over drinks in the Jacuzzi, play with the massive selection of water toys or simply watch the changing scenery from the foredeck sunpads.
At Rum Cay in the Bahamas, visit the shallow ‘Snowfields’ Scuba site to swim with reef sharks and learn to night dive, and try the more advanced sites around Conception Island National Park or snorkel the Plane Wreck only 5m/16ft deep elsewhere in the Abacos.
At the other end of the Bahamas, take the Scuba diving gear to North Eleuthera Current Cut, The Devil’s Backbone and The Glass Window Bridge, then and see the beautiful pink sands of Harbour Island from under the topaz waves.
Motor yacht TRENDING from Westport is certainly a stylish choice and she has a great selection of fishing gear as well as Scuba diving equipment on board. Fish the reefs for snapper, grouper and yellow tail, or take to the depths for tuna, wahoo, king fish and much more – all to be prepared by your professional on board chef for a mouth-watering and satisfying lunch alfresco on the sundeck.
Rest and digest on the sunbeds and sun loungers, then speed through the water on the jet skis and towable toys. Return to the beautiful art deco interiors for another wonderful meal and a film to wind down at the end of the day, before guests settle into their spacious en-suite accommodation.
“…Just wanted to let you know that everything went perfectly fine, we had a lovely time and everyone enjoyed the trip. Trending was lovely, they took really good care of us. We just left and will miss it. Thank you for helping us with everything really appreciate it.”

The timeless elegance of LADY J lends itself well to special occasions such as honeymoons and anniversaries, and the fantastic amenities on board are a welcome indulgent treat.

Dry off and warm up back on board with the array of sunbeds, then dine on a delicious multi-course meal to restore energy levels s you chat with the group about your best encounters. With the diving done, you can try one colourful cocktail concoction after another as you sink into the Jacuzzi for an evening under the stars.
