Owner description: Park that encompasses the wreck of the HMS Rhone, a mail ship that sunk during a hurricane in 1867, and Dead Chest Island, both great dive sites.

I generally don't like wrecks but the extensive coral growth on the Rhone made it all worth the time. Plenty of swim throughs, artifacts and gorgeous reefs to view.

A must dive when you are in the BVI. Read up on the history of the wreck and it will make your experience so much better!

Though we just snorkeled over this wreck, it was an amazing sight. The swells were big and it was a bit scary , but I would do it again in a heartbeat. Well worth the money.

This was my first dive of a shipwreck and I have to say that it's a pretty cool experience. Part of what made it special is hearing the history of the ship and the story from it's last night which was told by our knowledgeable staff from Dive BVI (out of Virgin Gorda).

The ship has been down there quite a long time and there's really not a ton of it to see. But, it was cool to see the propeller, the famous porthole that is rubbed for luck, the boiler, etc. Quite a few interesting fish and wildlife as well.

Dived the Rhone many times, dived all around the world. Rhone is an average dive not much fish due to over fishing.
