The oldest dive company in all of the British Virgin Islands, Sunchaser Scuba opened its doors in 1975 as Kilbrides Underwater Tours. The original owner, Bert Kilbride, has since retired, but his legacy lives on with this shop and Michael Van Blaricum, the current owner.

The dive boat leaves from the dock at Bitter End twice a day and typically offers dives around North Sound. You are bound to encounter beautiful coral reefs, wreck sites, and abundant marine life among their 24 frequented dive sites. A variety of dive courses are also available, including "Bubblemaker" for children, a PADI Advanced Open Water Course, and an Emergency First Response course, among others.
