Park that encompasses the wreck of the HMS Rhone, a mail ship that sunk during a hurricane in 1867, and Dead Chest Island, both great dive sites.

Went to the Rhone earlier this week - while you have to contend with many other dive boats (there were probably 10 there when we went) it is well worth it! Spend the time and do two dives as their are multiple sections to the boat ranging from 85ft up to 20ft. Lot of marine life too - quite enjoyable!

We loved this dive! There were some current there, but the dive was super cool and beautiful! Inside the Rhone lives the HUGEST lobsters I have ever seen!

The stop could be snorkeled but better with SCUBA. Beware of the current. Try to stop off peak to get a mooring

I love this wreck, and have dived it many times -- it never gets old. It is full of life, entirely encrusted with layer upon layer of corals and sponges. Big fish and tiny things, lots to photograph. You do it in two dives, first dive the deeper portion and the second dive the shallower. And if you're lucky, you... More

Parts of the sunken ship are only 15 feet below the surface. This site can be windy and difficult so be sure to stop on a day when the winds are not excessive.

The 2nd dive was much better down to the RMS Rhone than the 1st. It was interesting to see this shipwreck and a piece of history.

This is just about anything that a diver would want, you get the wreck itself, in between 40-80 feet of warm caribbean sea, spread over a swimmable area that allows for a varied two dives in a day. You get the fish, the turtles and the rays, but you also get some amazing, poignant, pics of the slowly corroding vessel,... More

If you only are able to do ONE dive in BVI, make it this one. There is so much to see on the two sections of the RMS Rhone that you can do a two tank dive just here - one tank on the deeper bow section and the second tank on the shallower stern section. The stern section is... More
