Dive from your Yacht in Leewards?

Does anyone know of any great scuba dives that you can do directly from your yacht in any of the Leeward Islands in the Caribbean? We are heading there shortly and will be touring all around. We have our own dive gear and tanks but don't want go with a dive shop or have to dinghy too far. We will be in St Maarten, Anguilla, St. Barts, Barbuda, Antigua and St Kitts. I have done Prosylite Reef and Ans de Colombier (sp) in the past. Thanks, in advance, for any advice.

I do not know if its too late but I defiantly recommend BVI.
1. They have mooring near most of the diving sites.
2. They have air source nearby.
3. Dive sites really good. They have a lot of marine life. Some of them hard to get some
of them really easy .
We did it last winter. Bare boat and diving on our own.

And they have to many good dive sites. You can check internet for them or I can give you some ideas if you want.

Re: Dive from your Yacht in Leewards?

Yes, I dive from my boat (and recharge using a Bauer Junior Compressor).

There are quite a few nice and easy dive spots (little current, depths no greater than 60 feet) off Park Mooring balls in the BVI - quite a few dive spots that I can think of offhand, probably about 20 in all.
In St. Martin the dive sites I like are just a bit too far to dive straight from the boat, but a short dinghy drive will get you there - Creole Rock in Grand Case and a couple of dive sites of Ile Tintamarre.
Ile Fourchue and Columbier in St. Barths are both nice dives reachable via dinghy.
Here are some pictures from a day's diving at Ile Fourchue in St. Barths:
