DAY 2 TO 6
A Typical Day on the Cuan Law
When you hear a bell, it’s either time to snorkel and dive (all dives operated by the Cuan Law), or to eat! Mornings begin with a delicious buffet-style breakfast including coffee, fresh fruits, homemade muffins, breads, pastries, , as well as a hot meal. Before breakfast, however, there are opportunities to take out a sea kayak for an early morning paddle, or just sit on the deck and watch the sun come up over the turquoise Caribbean waters.
After breakfast, set sail to find a beautiful spot to anchor. With an abundance of vibrant shallow reefs and intriguing caves, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to grab a mask and snorkel or to scuba dive to investigate the marine world. Masks, fins, snorkels, and flotation vests are part of your package. There are dozens of anchorages and over 100 dive sites for scuba divers and snorkelers. The itinerary of the boat varies from week to week, depending on the weather, and the whims of the captain.
Lunch is served under the shaded rear deck canopy. Between meals there are plenty of snacks including chocolate goodies, fresh fruit, and delicious hors d’oeuvres in the afternoon. After lunch, you’ll begin sailing to your anchorage where the boat moors for the night. Once you arrive there are more opportunities for snorkeling or scuba diving. You might also want to go ashore. Sandy white beaches are not to be missed, especially on the day of the special beach barbecue at The Baths on Virgin Gorda. The Baths is a unique rock formation of huge boulders and hidden sea pools. The crystal blue waters and many pools filled with tropical fish make this area a popular snorkeling and scuba diving spot.
Legend has it that pirates’ treasure was discovered on Norman Island around the turn of the century. Believed to be the Treasure Island of Robert Lewis Stevenson’s book, the Caves at Norman Island are a great place to dive and snorkel. The steep cliffs drop down as deep as 40 feet and are home to fish, sponges, corals, and shrimp.
Dinner is a classic sit-down event with china and crystal, and is the culinary highlight of the day. A savory blend of international cuisine and hearty island cooking are complimented by a selection of fine wines. Make sure to save room for desserts such as Key Lime Pie and Brownies Fantasia. After dinner you might play some games as a group, or watch the sun go down as you sip a nightcap from the boat’s bar. Scuba divers can choose to do an exciting night dive, an experience that you won’t soon forget!
