We used blue water dive and they were terrific in showing the sights. Can't miss the Rhone when I. Tortola though beware can get quite a bit of surge if the wind has been whipping through.

A safe dive for divers from beginners to advanced divers. Lot's to see, close to shore and most of the dive is in water less than 50 ft. Plenty of sea life and colourful corrals and of course the historic wreck. I highly recommend this dive.

The wreck is spread out and broken up which creates a diverse and appealing time on the bottom. Rays, eels, lobsters, and turtles were in abundance on our dive. The dive is shallow enough that we didnt have any questions about our youngest child diving it. The site is very popular, and every mooring point was in use when we... More

We book a trip out to the RMS Rhone with Aristocats. The wreck lies between 30 feet underwater and extends down to over 70 feet for some of the wreckage. Although it's predominantly for divers, the snorkeling trip was fantastic. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

Wonderful trip to the Rhone and great day with staff at Dive BVI. Everyone was very attentive and professional... This was our first time in the BVI and we did not know what to expect. This far exceeded our expectations.

The stern section is in shallow water and can easily be snorkeled, saving dive time for the deeper bow section, which can sometimes get tricky when the current is bad. Otherwise, it's a very easy rendezvous dive or one we'll do with our own gear next time.

The water in May and June was 83 degress and clear and perfect. We used Blue Wate Dive Boat and thought they were wonderful and professional as well. Had a ton of fun.

Eighth dive hear. Something about the Rhone that keeps bringing us back. The history and the story of the wreck are intriguing as well as the concept of diving with all of those lost souls.

If you are diving in the BVI's this is a must do dive. The wreck is impressive and so much of it is still visible. The deepest part is 80' so you can spend plenty of time checking out the entire wreck. If you have a Go-Pro use it as you get some of the best diving videos with the... More

I know this is primarily a dive spot but none of us were divers. We did snorkel over the shallower stern section of the Rhone. Man that was worth the time. It's kind of eerie floating over such an old wreck and visualizing the horrendous night that had to be. Also, it was kind of neat thinking Jacqueline Bisset had... More
