I have scuba dove all over the world by yacht , exploring the best and remotest areas of the Pacific like Micronesia, Fiji
, PNG, and Indonesia
, dove the oldest archeological wreck near Bodrum Turkey
in the Med, explored various parts
of the beautiful Red Sea and Indian Ocean
and like you….. sailing is a means to get to and stay at these premium dive sites and to discover new ones.
As a serious diver you know that the best dive sites are impossible anchorages
for a displacement
boat and come with big drop-offs, exposed reefs
and strong currents to replenish the nutrients.
Drift diving thru passes adds another component which means your tender
is the key to accessing premium dive sites.
It also requires topside support on the tender
and careful dive planning to achieve the pinnacle of dive experiences.
Take a look at how these 4 or 5 sailors combined their resources to manage their primary scuba diving interest and it may give you a better idea and alternate thoughts about what is needed to do this safely.
