Owner description: BVI SNUBA - Go Beyond Snorkeling. Experience the thrill of diving without the complication or heavy equipment. SNUBA is as simple as 1 - 2 - 3 .. 1. Participate in a 15 minute safety briefing and learn all about using the SNUBA equipment and what to expect during your guided experience. 2. Get geared up for your SNUBA experience with your mask, fins and weight belt. 3. Swim, breathe and explore our amazing underwater world at your own comfort level guided by a highly skilled and trained SNUBA professional It really is that easy !! Snuba allows you to explore a three-dimensional world you cannot enjoy while snorkelling. Swim side by side with turtles and fish along the brightly coloured coral reef. Breathe through a simple to use regulator while your air supply floats on a comforting support raft at the surface. Enjoy SNUBA at any depth, 2 feet, 10 feet, 20 feet SNUBA is experienced at your own level of comfort and your SNUBA guide will be with you throughout your entire tour.

Elaine was the best. I would have to say she appears to be the hardest working person in the BVI. Very friendly and knowledgeable and a great SNUBA instructor. This was the first time our 2 boys experienced SNUBA. Initially, we were concerned about the depth and pressure on their ears but this turned out to be a non issue. They were down for 30 min at depth of 20 ft. Beautiful reef just outside of Levericks Bay. She tied off on a mooring ball and then showed the kids around while she was in full scuba gear. Highly recommended.

We arrived in Leverick Bay in the early afternoon and within an hour of seeing the Snuba sign Elaine had us under the water! We were seven willing participates that have never dove before and now we cant wait to Snuba again. Anyone 8 years or older should definitely try Snuba. The setup was simple and the views were amazing! Elaine made the whole experience seamless and terrific! We have all decided that a Snuba trip is a must do on our return trip to the BVI.

Snuba is a most do when you visit Virgin Gorda. The waters are so clear. So much marine life. And Elaine is the best. This was my first time and she made the experience so enjoyable. She keeps you laughing but is very professional and explains things very well. She never rushes you. You get comfortable at your own pace with the gear. And once your down under the water she made sure I didn’t miss a single thing.

This had been my wife and I third time doing SNUBA and Elaine was an incredible guide, instructor and person. Elaine's depth and experience in diving really puts any concerns you may have about the water and the SNUBA equipment to rest.

There is SO much to see in the vast underwater ecosystem in the BVIs and snorkeling doesn't quite take you up and personal with it like this SNUBA experience does.

This is also a great activity for those thinking about getting SCUBA certified to get the feel of being under the water with a regulator before investing into SCUBA.

Our son was with us this time and it was his first time and he's hooked and all three of us are now starting our SCUBA certification.

We HIGHLY recommend contacting Elaine as you will have an incredible time.

Worth your time and money. All details are taken care of and with a multiple range of dive sites that are all different..... this will be a no brainer for everyone.

I visited Virgin Gordo for a few days and got in contact with Elaine as she had visited my island in the past. She took me for SNUBA and it was great. In fact, this is such an easy and enjoyable activity, I am not sure if I will ever go out with a tank strapped on my back if I want to dive shallow.

SNUBA can be done by anybody in reasonable health and you do not have to be certified.

Elaine will take care of all the details and leaves nothing to chance.

Perfect! Book multiple days!
