A brief synopsis of BVI dive sites as compiled by Dive BVI.
Suitable for all from the newest diver to the saltiest sea dog! From the healthy star coral reefs of Great Dog to the fish-filled currents flowing around West Dog and Cockroach Islands, from the history of the wreck of the RMS Rhone (voted best wreck in the Caribbean by Skin Diver magazine) to the pelagic treats to be found at the Chikuzen, you are sure to find what you have been looking for in diving. Recent results from the readers at Rodales’ Scuba Diving magazine have put the BVI on the world diving stage. Top Wrecks, Top Snorkeling, and Top Beginner Diving awards for 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, and 2011 show that the word has gotten out.
New divers can take comfort from the sandy sea floor surrounding our islands which limits the vast majority of our dive sites to a maximum depth of 80 feet.
More experienced divers will be rejuvenated by watching huge schools of fish feeding on the nutrient rich currents at Dry Rocks East or the Visibles. And with our Nitrox System, you can now safely extend that bottom time without the worry of reaching your nitrogen limits due to depth concerns. You’ll get more time to see more exciting action underwater. Many of our “more experienced” (i.e. older) divers prefer to use our Nitrox blends, especially when diving multiple days with us.
We have rich coral reefs like Great Dog and Ginger Island, undersea pinnacles at The Visibles and The Invisibles, reefs built on huge underwater boulders such as Flintstones or Joe’s Cave, plus wash rocks at Dry Rocks East and Dolphin Rocks, and wrecks including The RMS Rhone, Chikuzen, Marie L / Pat, and the Inganess Bay. The sheer size of the BVI make for a great variety of topography and conditions at our many dive sites.
