Liveaboards in The Caribbean - Bluewater Dive Travel

Liveaboards in The Caribbean

With an area of over 1 million square miles, the warm clear waters of the Caribbean offer a breathtaking array of underwater adventures and are an excellent first-time liveaboard option. Just as each of the 30-plus island nations enjoys its own individual charm, so the diving varies widely to suit all levels and tastes.

Find out why the Caribbean is one of our Best Liveaboard destinations.

There are dozens of liveaboards available throughout the Caribbean, offering everything from 6-night to 14-night itineraries to suit all manner of budgets. Here are some of the most popular liveaboard areas in the Caribbean.



The Bahamas archipelago is a popular year-round liveaboard destination. Known for its excellent visibility, great coral reefs, and dive site diversity, we also consider Tiger Beach in the Bahamas to be one of the world's best locations for shark diving. With over 700 islands to discover, visiting by liveaboard is the best way to experience the Bahamas.

Belize is a lesser-known dive destination offering enormously varied diving on fringing reefs, protected within the Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System. It is described as one of the most pristine reef ecosystems in the Western Hemisphere, and the best way to experience this country’s unique coastline is by liveaboard. 



The British Virgin Islands (BVI), officially the Virgin Islands, are a British overseas territory located in the Caribbean to the east of Puerto Rico. BVI are a collection of 60 unspoiled islands that pack the best of the Caribbean into one convenient destination. From the culture and history of BVI’s four largest islands to the pristine natural splendor of more than 50 smaller isles, every place offers its own special magic.


Cayman Islands

The Cayman Islands offer a fantastic diversity of diving to suit all levels, with some of the best marine life in the Caribbean. The largest of the three islands, Grand Cayman lies the furthest west, while Little Cayman and Cayman Brac sit 75 miles to the east. As such, exploring via liveaboard is the easiest way to discover the best of all three islands in one trip.



Year-round diving is possible amongst Saba’s intriguing underwater volcanic topography. The marine life around Saba Marine Park’s 30 dive sites is unique and diverse, and divers can expect to spot hawksbill turtles, stingrays, sharks, and lots of colorful tropical fish. The island is characterized by steep cliffs and a lack of beaches, so access by liveaboard is a great option.

Silver Bank, Dominican Republic

One of only three places in the world where visitors can safely snorkel with humpback whales, trips to the Silver Bank are tightly regulated to protect these awesome giants. As such only a few liveaboards visit between January and April each year, and places onboard are heavily contested.

Turks and Caicos

Turks and Caicos is a year-round scuba diving destination, boasting some of the best wall dives in the Caribbean. One of the islands' main draws is the abundance of sea turtles. This group of islands also hosts a thriving underwater ecosystem with marine species such as orange elephant ear sponges, grey reef sharks, angelfish, eagle rays, and nurse sharks, not to mention great macro life.

DIving season

The majority of Caribbean destinations are diveable year-round, however, hurricane season runs from June through to November, and only the southernmost islands fall outside the hurricane belt. While there is quite a low chance of being affected by a storm, rates tend to be cheaper and there are fewer visitors during this time, so don’t discount it as an option.

Peak tourist season is from December until April, and many of the big tourist resorts such as Cozumel and Grand Cayman can be pretty crowded. If you are planning to spend some time ashore before or after your trip, make sure to research and book ahead so as not to be disappointed.
