Five Reasons to Dive the British Virgin Islands

Rhone

Its encrusting marine life makes the Rhone one of the prettiest wrecks in the Caribbean.

1. RMS Rhone

Perhaps the most famed shipwreck in the Caribbean, the 310-foot former mail ship wows divers with its legendary lore, bow swim-through and abundant marine life. It’s an especially good experience at night when orange cup corals unfurl to feed.

2. Topside Fun

Pristine beaches accessed by sea kayak, happening beach bars and natural attractions like the legendary Baths make surface intervals worth celebrating.

3. Colorful Reefs

Big animals might be mostly absent, but you’ll see nearly every rainbow-hued character from the fish ID charts while diving the colorful, shallow reefs here.

4. Perfect Dive Conditions

Warm waters with great visibility make diving all the more inviting — pair that with the languorous caress of the trade winds during your topside time, and overall conditions hardly get better.

5. Sailing Serenity

Whenever possible, the captain shuts off the motor and the sails go up as the Cuan Law or your chartered sailing vessel moves silently from one idyllic anchorage to another. True bliss.
