The ship wreck is awesome. Starts at about 30 feet deep and goes to about 80 feet. I have been there twice and the visibility was great both times, 50ish feet. It's right off of salt island which is great for hiking.

This was one of my all time favorite places to dive. It is interesting with lots to see. While there are many places to dive in the BVI, this is one of the most interesting.

Great dive. Super shipwreck. If current is slight, this is a must see dive site in the BVI. Try and get the 2 tank trip to see both sections of the wreck.

You don't need another glowing review of diving the wreck of the RMS Rhone. You've probably read enough reviews by now to know it's fabulous. Swim-through hull, fish galore, dramatic wreckage. I guess all I can add is that, as of April 2014, it's still...More

The wreck of the RMS Rhone lies in 40-80 feet of water just off Salt Island (which is actually nowhere near Anegada, despite Tripadvisor's categorisation!). It sank in a hurricane with the loss of almost everybody aboard in 1867, and it has been a national...More

We had hoped to dive on this wreck but had to snorkel due to ear problems. Despite that, we had a great time seeing the wreck from above. Parts of it are quite shallow, and the water is very clear, so it is possible to...More

My daughter and I dove the RMS Rhone in September, 2013, with 'SailCaribbeanDivers'. It was an exceptional experience. I have done 300+ dives and dove many wrecks (in various seas on 3 different continents) and can easily say that this was one of my best...More
