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

We dove the Rhone with Blue Water Divers out of Tortola (see our rave reviews for their dive outfit here on Tripadvisor). We were very lucky to have wonderful conditions! My boyfriend and I did a two tank dive in the morning. The wreck is off Salt Island and we were able to hear about the ships history and demise... More

A short ride from Lamberts, we went scuba diving with Sail Caribbean Divers out of Hodges Creek Marina. Our group had beginners for Discover Scuba Diving, recently certified divers and very experienced divers. Sail Caribbean Divers gave every one of us a fantastic personal and professional experience.

I've done this dive 5 times and it did not get boring. Lots of marine life and super exciting to discover the ship from the in- and outside. I really enjoyed the dive at night, sort of scary and exciting at the same time. But really easy to get lost if you don't know the site to well (at night).... More

This was a great dive--lots of structure, history and coral reef dwellers. We make it through the entire wreck in one dive and saw so much!!! A must dive when visiting Tortola.

Went there solely to dive and it was one of the better wrecks I've dove. Check out Pussers while on Tortola for a bit of history over their special drinks and a great burger ! ( nice clothes shop too !) Date not accurate

I've dived both parts of this wreck twice now, once with a dive guide and once with a buddy. Both times were excellent, with clear water and abundant marine life. There can be a bit of a current, especially on the bow section, but it's been manageable each time I've visited. The wreck is fascinating and quite well preserved. The... More
