Regarded as one of the best shallow dives in the BVIs, these four rocky pinnacles rise and descend roughly the same fifty feet above and below the water surface, which form abundant coral gardens, a 15-foot tunnel, lots of fish and an underwater cavern.

Best Snorkeling Ever!

I've snorkel in a few places in the Caribbean and i need to admit that The Indians is my favorite place to snorkel. I can go back in a heartbeat.

If you want to introduce someone to snorkeling in the BVI this is the place to do it. Lovely coral gardens with lots of fish to see, For experienced divers (and snorkel-gurus) it will be a bit sad, that the lovely coral gardens are wore down by the most dangerous creature around - fellow humans. Fin marks, broken the most... More

The Indians can get a little busy, there aren't that many mooring bouys so if you are on your own boat best to get there early or late. I can't speak for the snorkelling as we didn't do any, but I have done a couple of dives and they are very good, if a bit shallow in places. There is... More

The indians are rocks that tower out of the ocean. We sailed up to the Indians and moored our boat. I think there are 4 or 5 mooring balls that you can hook up to. The water is deep(50-60ft) We swam all around the rocks and saw lots of colors, coral, schools of fish. Snorkeling at the Indians was one... More

A great place to jump in and swim around. This particular day was a little choppy but the fish and colors were amazing!

We stopped off at the Indians as we missed it the last time we were in the BVI's. The snorkling is average at best - I guess coming from the Bahamas one does tend to be somewhat critical but the guide books do play it up. In many parts of the BVI's the caption "excellent snorkling" really means some fairly... More

Great snorkling off this reef - simple too, just pick up a mooring buoy and swim from your boat or tender onto a small buoy. Less swell between Pelican Islands and the Indians but dramatic drop off on the southern side worth checking out. I'd slip early from Norman to get a mooring in higher season.

This was one of the best snorkeling experiences I've had to date. There is a nice, yet small living coral reef between The Indians and Pelican Island with abundant fauna. We even encountered sea turtles in there. But there were also a lot of jellyfish! Be on the lookout if you do go there. They tend to stay very close... More

One of (if not the) best snorkeling spots we hit during a private charter ride. Ton of fish and coral. it was very calm, so we could get nice and close without fear of disturbing the coral. Must do if you are near it and like snorkeling.

This is one of our favorite spots to snorkel. A wide variety of fish will keep you entertained for hours. There is quite a current especially when the tide is ebbing or flowing. This is a very popular spot and there are only a limited number of moorings, so arrive well before noon and you might get lucky. You will... More
