It would be our pleasure to take you, your family or a friend on the journey to obtain your scuba certification, take an advanced class, a sailing charter or vacation.

DIVE-SAIL-EXPLORE

We are a Scuba Schools International (SSI) instructional Dive Center and Dive Boat affiliate. Our instructors have thousands of dives and a desire to provide the most comprehensive and enjoyable diving experience possible. SSI embraces this same philosophy across the entirety of its dive education catalog and professional education standards. Frankly speaking, the SSI methods and techniques are unmatched in a “student first” and “comfort through repetition” philosophy. The SSI state of the art Digital Learning platform, exemplary training standards and the best in-class instructor training programs are the finest in the industry. A prospective student or scuba enthusiast cannot find a better training agency than an SSI affiliate to take a scuba diving course.

Our sailing charters are seasonal and depart from the Northern Caribbean islands of Puerto Rico and St. Thomas, the Florida Keys and the Chesapeake Bay. Each itinerary is based on the season and time of year. We vary our cruising locations annually to provide the most variety for new and returning guests. Our love for exploring the oceans and off the beaten path destinations will make your experience unique. It would be our pleasure to share these adventures both above and below the waterline with you. Whether we are diving a pristine reef or exploring a wreck, sailing the waters of the Spanish Virgin Islands, the Florida Keys, the Northern Chesapeake or providing you with dive training while on charter, we are always by your side. We offer courses in introductory scuba certification and many diving specialties while on charter. Our scuba instructors are also Divers Alert Network (DAN) Instructors. We offer safety, first aid and CPR/AED training for divers and individuals, USCG captains, and corporations, both big and small. As a DAN business partner we have access to all of the latest educational information related to diving research and medicine for both on land and at sea. DAN’s Safety courses are USCG approved and meet all ILCOR standards.

ECO-FRIENDLY AND ENVIRONMENTALLY SENSITIVE

As sea going stewards we are partners with one of the finest non-profit organizations in the world dedicated to educating and promoting a more eco-friendly approach to everything we do on the planet, Blue Oceans. Through this organization we provide education and environmental training that really demonstrates how easy it is to be a better steward of the earth and her resources. As scuba divers, instructors and sailors we must take responsibility for the waters we explore. Protect them and educate people when and where possible. Our Blue Oceans instructors educate divers and non-divers in the ecology of the oceans, reef systems, animal and plant life and how we all can be proactive and protect this fragile yet ultra-important ecosystem we explore. We would relish the opportunity to educate or reinforce your understanding of these areas as we protect our one of a kind ocean planet, one dive or charter at a time.

We practice what we preach when it comes to being eco-friendly. Therefore Compass Dive and Sail does everything we can to ensure a minimal carbon footprint by sailing, leaving bubbles and taking only pictures when we dive and ensuring that any effluent or grey water from Serenity is bay, sea, ocean, fish and reef friendly. To that extent we have affiliated with STREAM2SEA to provide our charter guests with the most eco-friendly and reef safe products onboard our boat. Our guest cabins are furnished with reef safe skin, hair care and sunscreen products. STREAM2SEA products are packed in an eco-friendly manner as well. All of their product containers either use recycled milk jugs or sugarcane resins and all bags are made with biodegradable PLA film.
