Comments If you want to get away from it all in beautiful tropical surroundings with pictureche views of the British Virgin Islands, Cooper Island Beach Club is the place to be. This place is for divers who love to dive but prefer to stay in a laid-back, non-tourist type location.

The diving routine is as follows: Wakeup and fix your own breakfast. At 8:30am...Caribean Sail dive boat picks you up from the Cooper Island Beach Club pier. Do two morning dives at various & diverse dive sites. Back to the dock by 1:00pm. Have a wonder lunch at the covered outdoor resturant that overlooks the British Virgin Islands. If you are so inclined, do a 3rd dive at 2:30pm from the dive boat. Or choose to do a shore dive, snorkel, or just sit back and veg-out on the shaded beach an read a book or take a nap.

Caribean Sail Divers is a safely & service-oriented first class dive operation. They will pamper you as little or as much as you desire. There boats are modern, well equipped and made specifically for diving.

This was my 5th year-in-a-row to Cooper Island Beach Club and Caribean Sail and I expect I will return for many trip in the future.
