We took their Island Tour (i.e., booze cruise) on our honeymoon. The boat was full, but we didn't feel cramped at all. Most of the seats are inside, though.

The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. We made friends with the other passengers, and saw them throughout the week at other hot spots.

We snorkeled the Indians (sooo cool!!!!) and the caves (eh.), before a fun lunch at Willy T's (definitely jump off!), and an afternoon on White Bay (I'm not stumbling, I'm walking on sand).

Very fun, and a great way to see the BVIs.

Sarah and company really made our first diving experience perfect. We did the class work, pool work and 45 minute dive all in one day. Individual attention throughout the entire process made all the difference. Scott was off, so Marc and Mike came over from Yacht Harbor and made sure everything was perfect from start to finish. And though we were beginners, my brother-in-law is a veteran who dove with Scott the day before and said he was the best dive master he ever had. I highly recommend an adventure with Dive BVI.

We've just returned from Virgin Gorda. We went out 4 days with Dive BVI, had fantastic dives there - the Rhone is everything we heard about and more; the night dive at the Chimney is also a must go - and a great time with Vivian, Marc, Jeff and Zoltan (thanks for the tips wit the camera!). Very professional team and very friendly buddies. In addition boats and equipments are in very good shape and the dive shop has the collest dive t-shirt collection i've ever seen. I highly recommend these guys.

We recently stayed at Scrub Island and used Dive BVI for two (2) day trips. I recommend that you visit the the company website and search day trips. Their descriptions are accurate. We reserved the Island Hopper in advance and weren't disappointed by the price. We loved every stop; the Indians for snorkling, the caves for snorkling and exploring. Willie T's for lunch and the Soggy Dollar Bar for a great beach and a couple of painkillers. We also met a bunch of great people. Perfect! Thanks to Laura for hosting a great trip.

You won't find it online but they offered a Virgin Gorda Explorer trip for $100 pp. It was also incredible. We explored the Bath's and Devil's Bay which is by far the most beautiful beach I've ever seen. THey took us to lunch at Coco Maya (at your own expense). Then it was off to a taxi where we toured the island, stopping at Hog's Heaven for a drink and a view. Then it was off to Savannah Bay for an incredible snorkle. Another great trip! Hats off to Brian for the pre-trip e-mails, help in the dive shop, and captaining the boat.

We wanted to give special thanks to Sarah who led our Virgin Gorda trip. She was an awesome guide. The following day Sarah gave a free scuba introduction/lesson in the hotel pool. And we participated. It seemed as if she had some down time and took it upon herself to organize and give the lesson. Thanks Sarah! You Rock!

The Dive BVI team at Scrub Island Resort was just terrific. Setting aside the great diving experiences (4 days x2 tanks), the Dive BVI team made it exceptional: Brian (the irish comic and story teller), Marc (2nd in line to the comedy club), Scott (the overachiever), Sarah (the pleaser), Tara (up in the clouds), and, finally, Clavoyne (the flirt). If you are staying at Scrub Island or nearby, I highly recommend this group. They took care of my gear during my stay, set-it up, and went out of their way to make you feel pampered.

The dives were awesome (except for one, due to poor visibility). All dive-masters paired the dives according to experience levels and grouped the divers accordingly. This was great as I did not have to worry about cutting our dive short since we were all experienced divers and did not run out of air prematurely. Dive sites that are a must on your next trip: Ginger Steps, and the RMS Rhone (wreck).

Additional tip: book your dive in advance to save a few $$$ and do not forget to tip your team.
