Dove the Rhone with Sunchaser Scuba. An amazing two dives and the best wreck dive I have been on anywhere. The absolute highlight of the diving and a must see for anyone coming to the area.

It felt like we were swimming in someone's aquarium there were so many beautiful fish swimming around. Kind of creepy though, when you remember that 160+ people died in the shipwreck of the RMS Rhone.

I joined a dive to the Wreck of the Rhone and Wreck Alley, both dives were excellent - lots of marine life and interesting to see the ships, especially the Rhone. The water was warm and visibility amazing and we saw lots of marine life, including sting rays and reef sharks. I would recommend this dive to friends and family.... More

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.
