About Blue Water Divers
On the 6th of September the BVI's were hit by hurricane Irma, a huge storm that decimated the islands. Blue Water Divers suffered a huge amount of damage, we completely lost our storm at West End. At Nanny Cay we lost part of the roof on the dive centre, our tank room collapsed, and our store room blew away. Out of our 4 dive boats, two sunk, but we are delighted to say that as of this week, 18th December we are fully operational at Nanny Cay, and we are out diving. We look forward to taking you diving again, so please come and see us soon.

I got a ride from Le Mar at Quality Taxi Service 284-340-9119 to Nanny Cay Marina where Blue Water divers were located. You can still see the devastation the hurricanes have caused along the way and since this is a some what more up scale island the damage was also very expensive. Michael and Keith Royale run the place and our dive masters that took us out were Meghan and Sophia both proficient and jovial people. Conditions were rough as we headed across the channel towards Peter and Norman island. We tied off in a somewhat sheltered cove which made diving easier. I was surprised by the number of boats in the area as normally at dive sites you only see other dive boats. There were nine of us but some were taking their open water testing so the experienced divers had a good time. The reef at our first dive was Rainbow Canyon at a depth of 46 feet and was in good shape and there was a variety of fish to see including turtles and lobster. Our second dive off Pelican rock went to 58 feet unfortunately both reefs had only about 25 feet of visibility. After our two dives we returned to the marina and it was a good thing that the boat had twin 250 hp motors as we really fought our way back, kudos to Sophia for her masterful job of driving through the swells. These were decent dives although not spectacular and at a cost of $130 US even with my own gear I felt it was rather expensive

Highly recommended this dive center. On a 7-day cruise stopping in Tortola, BVI. Got a cab ride easily 20 min to Blue Water Divers at 8:45. One of the owners Keith met me & kindly took care of getting fins/mask together then headed out with Divemaster Kelsey, Sophia and Ross & 9 other divers on 40 min boat ride to Satl Island to dive the RMS Rhône “Wreck of the Rhône” 85’ & 40’ dives full of abundant barracuda, nursing sharks, large lobster, crabs, sting ray, turtles, eel, and various varieties of fish. The crew set up the equip & changed out between dives....many thanks Kelsey, Sophia & Ross for a great day of diving to a great dive spot!

Blue Water and Meg made for the perfect first dives for my wife! Meg was patient and caring. She helped my wife get comfortable and took us on a couple beautiful dives. Gorgeous reefs, squid, huge lobsters, turtles and underwater canyons summarized our two dives! They even supplied the post dive beer. Presidente would have been better than Schaffer but I can’t complain about free beer!

Thank you for taking the time to write this for us. Megs is the best with new divers! Our dives here in the BVI are easy dives but with huge amounts of marine life as you discovered. We look forward to diving again with you in the future.

My first dives in the Caribbean since getting my PADI certification didn’t disappoint! We dived off Norman Island at two sites including Santa Monica Rock where we were followed by two big very curious reef sharks for virtually the entire dive. The group I joined included a couple of friendly expats who made me and another lone traveller feel very welcome and our divemasters were great all day. Will definitely come back to dive more with Blue Water Divers next time I’m in BVI.

Hi Charlie, Thank you for taking the time to write this for us. You were lucky to dive with us on a flat day, which is the only day Santa Monica is possible. Hope you enjoyed the rest of your cruise.
