Creating dream holidays in paradise!

The BVI is an excellent choice for every level of diver – plenty of shallows with the occasional drop-off, very few currents and plenty of sheltered dive sites.

When you make your way to the BVI for the diving trip of a lifetime, here are a few must see dive locations.

The diving in the British Virgin Islands is like no other place on earth, but don’t just take our word for it – come and see for yourself.

The “Wreck of the Rhone”

The “Wreck of the Rhone” is one of the most famous and popular and lies in depths from 20 to 80 feet with the water temperature fluctuating at around 80 – 86 degrees.

The RMS Rhone was a UK Royal Mail Ship owned by the Royal Mail Steam Packet Company. She was wrecked off the coast of Salt Island in the British Virgin Islands on 29 October 1867 in a hurricane, killing 123 people. She is now a popular Caribbean wreck dive site and home to several resident barracuda, sea turtles, stingrays, angel fish and many varieties of fish life. Apparently, if you spot an octopus while diving the Rhone, it’s considered good luck!

Alice in Wonderland

Situated just off Ginger Island, this site is ideal for intermediate divers.

The coral sightings are incredible there and the main reason why this site stands out in the crowd. Alice in Wonderland is definitely a dive not to be missed.


This dive site is named after a Japanese fishing boat which sank after drifting into the BVI and is remotely located 12 miles north of the island of Virgin Gorda. The majority of the surrounding area is sand, so marine life thrives at Chikuzen. Be on the lookout for barracuda, eagle rays, nurse and reef sharks, snapper, stingrays, and the infamous 600-pound Goliath Grouper.

Painted Walls

Near Dead Chest and close to Peter Island, Painted Walls is a fabulous dive site for beginners. Parallel passages and vertical walls run perpendicular to the island. Painted Walls is fun to explore as the colourful canyons create unique passageways for swimming. Three prominent fingers extend out to create colour splashed canyons. The unusual underwater landscape and abundance of fish make Painted Walls one of the most popular dives in the BVI.

Twin Towers

Located off the north side of Little Jost Van Dyke, this site is only for the advanced. In accordance with its title, two huge coral-covered boulders are what make Twin Towers so special. The unique topography down below also includes a sloping shoreline, mini caves, and schools of reef squid.
