Dive in the British Virgin Islands and see stunning coral gardens, grottos, caverns, tunnels and wrecks teeming with marine life along with superior underwater visibility. The BVI have more than 100 dive sites well worth a visit with many of the sites in the 15' to 50' range and others having 60' to 80' depths. The water temperature averages around eighty two-degrees year round.
The dives range from coral covered walls, to many wrecks, with the wreck of the Rhone being the most famous. Several long time dive shops are well equipped for any type of dive, with great sites from novice to advanced. Most dive shops offer instruction from beginner to dive master qualification.
Extremely conservation-minded, the BVI have an extensive system of moorings at the popular dive sites that are maintained by the National Parks Trust and Ministry of Natural Resources which is dedicated to the preservation of reef areas and marine life.
So dive, explore nature's little secrets underwater and discover an amazing world!
