Up 'n' Under Watersports invites you to explore the beautiful Caribbean Sea both above and below the water here in the British Virgin Islands! Whether it be learning to Kitesurf in clear warm waters, improving your Snorkeling / Free-diving skills on a historical wreck or going with family and friends on a luxury live aboard catamaran adventure to some of nature's best kept secrets we're here to help!
Have you ever wanted to give Kitesurfing a try? Well there's no better place to learn than here in the warm, clear waters of the BVI! Our experienced team have been based in Virgin Gorda for many years having previously worked worldwide and finally on Necker Island as senior water sports instructors and captains. Their combined student count is well into the thousands and after organising countless kite trip/safaris around the BVI's they have also built an extensive knowledge of some of the best kiteboarding spots the islands have to offer. Their knowledge, experience and safety is second to none.
If you love the underwater world as much as we do then why not try pushing your snorkelling skills to the next level by signing up for a Free-diving experience! Free-diving is the art of diving down underwater with just a breath taken from the surface. This may sound scary but with proper guidance and supervision it is very safe and progression is much faster than you might think! Our team have impeccable safety training while the BVI offers a huge diversity of sites to visit with varying depths displaying a world of live coral gardens teeming with fish and a selection of historical ship wrecks!
Ever dreamed of a sailing trip around the BVI? Why not hire one of our experienced instructor/captains to come with you as a guide! If you've never sailed before we can teach you and help plan your perfect trip! Visit some of the best Snorkelling and kitesurfing spots some of which are only reachable only by boat such as Necker Island, Virgin Gorda, Anegada and Jost Van Dyke which are just a few of our favourite! We will tailor your trip to your activity needs so whether it be kitesurfing everyday or a bit of everything we're here to help! Our favoured bareboat charter company here in the BVI is TMM Yacht Charters
