Comments This trip was my seventh charter of the Cuan Law. I always charter the entire boat for my groups and that gives us the freedom to dictate when and where we will dive, sail, etc. The crew is extremely accomodating when it comes to all of the above. They will make suggestions, offer in depth predive briefings and always have one of their divemaster/instructors in the water with the divers. They will lead if asked but otherwise divers are allowed to set their own profiles, depths, times, etc. The Cuan Law is the most spacious and luxurious live aboard that I have been on, including the Truk Odessy. The rooms are large and spacious with large private bathrooms. The food is exceptional and the chef, Dan, is incredible. Steve, the British captain, is exceptionally well trained as a yacht captain and is friendly, knowledgable and ready to show you any part of his job that you are interested in. The entire crew makes it a point to let you know that they are there to make sure that you have a wonderful experience and will do anything within their power to assure that happens. This particular charter started at St Maarten, took in St Barts, St Kitts and Nevis, Saba, Sombrero and ended in the BVI's with two dives there and the beach picnic at Virgin Gordo- the Baths- our final day. I would rate the Cuan Law and this trip a five star excellent dive vacation.
