We saw a nurse shark and the snorkeling was wonderful. The underwater rock channels make for great views of the fish life on the walls of the channels. It's a beautiful place to sail too.

We went through the Dogs on our way down the island chain and decided to pick up one of the 5 (perhaps 6) mooring balls located on George Island. The inner mooring ball (we snorkeled the area) is too shallow for larger keeled vessels if the wind is coming from the south, or the wave direction pushes you to shore, but the other mooring balls area in plenty of depth and near the shore. We snorkeled from the boat along the coast on either side of what looks like a small spite of beach (really doesn't qualify as a beach), and the visibility was excellent. Lovely coral, and although we didn't see tons of fish, we saw some that we haven't seen elsewhere in the BVI. I took my fins and mask off to swim around the boat and to my surprised found the current to be quite strong....I am a strong swimmer, but I would not recommend small children swimming in this area unless it is a very calm day with no current or tide to speak of. With fins and snorkel gear, it is very doable if you are an intermediate or above swimmer. Very beautiful location.…

Guidebooks do it no justice and it's a well kept secret of the more experience captains of the BVIs. One hour dive on Flintstones alone before moving on to the other Dogs / sites mentioned in the books.

We got a day-use mooring ball at George Dog. The snorkeling was the best of our whole trip. Beautiful coral and tons of fish.

This is a great place to stopover if you are in this neck of the woods and you have a few hours to snorkel. Expect to Anchor, because there is only one mooring, but it's a nice sandy bottom and pretty easy to set in. A quick swim to the edge of the island will reward you with cool fish and nice reef, or you can sit on the small beech at the south end of Great Dog.…
