Cuan Law Liveaboards
British Virgin Islands, Caribbean
Our scuba diving liveaboard trimaran was designed for the dual purpose of serving the needs of those desiring a luxury dive liveaboard experience and for enjoying sailing vacation in the BVI. Complementing underwater exploring of reefs and wrecks, we offer eco adventures, shore excursions and gourmet dining. Because British Virgin Islands (BVI) dive sites are many and are within close proximity to one another, the scuba diving liveaboard All Star Cuan Law offers a flexible itinerary. Rather than a set number of daily dives, our guests can log between 14 and 16 dives throughout their trip.
The dive & sail liveaboard All Star Cuan Law was designed for comfort and stability and is only outdone by its five-star service. The expansive main salon is the social hub of the ship with luxurious real leather easy chairs and sofas, tables and a large bar. Discover coolers with beer, wine and juices around the base of the mast in the salon as well.
In addition to the large sundeck and main salon, enjoy the amenities of the large shaded alfresco deck. During the day you’ll gather here for briefings and preparation for activities. At meal time this aft deck becomes the dining terrace – a smart waterfront restaurant.
- 10 cabins – configure as a queen or two twins
- Private bathrooms in each cabin with standard heads (toilets)and shower

- Main salon library with magazines, cards and board games

While the RMS Rhone and the Chikuzen are well-known dive sites, the newest wreck is the Kodiak Queen, a former World War II U.S. Navy vessel once known as YO-44. It has the distinction of being only one of five ships to survive Pearl Harbor.
The YO wreck-to-reef project seeks to conserve and rehabilitate marine life while advancing marine science. Restoring coral and protecting Goliath grouper and other local fish are priorities. The use of environmental DNA will be used to help monitor this habitat. A sunken art gallery will be part of the BVI Art Reef.
Fourteen protected areas exist within the BVI including the RMS Rhone Marine Park managed by the National Parks Trust of the Virgin Islands, dedicated to conserving natural and historical sites. Fisheries – 13 total – are overseen by the Conservation and Fisheries Dept. Another 40 areas have been identified to be part of a Marine Protected Network. These areas exist to protect major marine and coastal habitats including hard and soft corals and fishery habitats.
Exploring & Eco Adventures
While the British Virgin Islands (BVI) offer exceptional wreck diving, visitors have just as many activities to consider topside.

Let’s not forget shore excursions. Every island has it’s own unique personality. They are yours to discover.
