Dived the "Rhone" because it's almost mandatory that you do so, if you're visiting the BVI. Actually turned out to be quite an experience. Great visibility and stunning marine life.

On the sailing part of my trip a group of us tried to find the Rhone on our on with no success. We probably could have found it with a little more research and time on our hands. When staying on Cooper Island, I decided to go with a dive company to see the ship. It was worth it! It was really cool and the dive masters knew exactly where to take the group and what to look for. I went with Sail Caribbean Divers because they were associated with the hotel. They did a fantastic job! We maybe could have seen the wreak without a guide but it was awesome to have someone knowledgeable point out the highlights of the ship!

I'm not sure how many dives at RMS Rhone I did so far but for sure 20+ and I still enjoy it. if you have to choose only 1 dive site in the BVI make you sure you visit this National Park!! Great night dive also! Only problem is that sometime it is crowded...

This is one of my favorite dives of all time. The water is so clear and teaming with tons of beautiful coral. The ship is in excellent shape with lots to see. THere are also a lot of big fish swimming around and even saw a nurse shark. I probably like the bow even better than the stern but both dives are fantastic.

I expected a fairly colorless dive with the the wreck being all there was to see. We were pleasantly surprised to see tons of colorful coral and fish in, on, and around the wreck. Swimming through the Rhone we saw schools of colorful fish and brilliant corals everywhere. Expect a 2 tank dive to explore the entire wreck as it's in sections on the ocean floor. You'll have the opportunity to touch a porthole for good luck as well as rub a spoon that's rumored to be from the captain. It's a don't miss, in my opinion, if you're in the BVI. Use caution on the descent lines as there is fire coral growing everywhere on them.
