An optional Scuba dive is available when we meet with our Dive Boat, Tornado Dive, which is purpose built to do Introductory or Certified Scuba Dives.

This itinerary will cover around 100km’s around the islands and is achieved in 3 days and 2 nights due to the sailing performance your Adventure Yacht to sail faster than other charter yachts can go, even when they use a motor, which is also really friendly for the environment as we use wind power.
