Diving in BVI

I will be in BVI for a week in late May and was wondering where the best dive spots are? We will be using a local dive shop and would gladly accept recommendations for that as well. We will probably only dive for a couple of days.

Thanks,

The wreck of the Rhone is the most popular site. The dive shops will pick up the divers off your boat in the AM and return them to the boat even if it has moved later in the day.

My son used Dive BVI when he was sailing with us there. They have info on the dive sites they use on their website. He was very happy with them.

Dive BVI will know which dives are best, depending on visibility, swell direction, etc. I would go with their advice, since you can always snorkel some of the best spots by yourself, including the stern of the Rhone, the Chimney (Great Dog), and Monkey Point (Guana Island).

I 3rd the Dive BVI choice. We've dealt with them a number of times and they've always been top notch.

They'll know exactly where to take you. We wanted to do the Chikuzen one day but conditions weren't good for it. We did Wreck alley. Then we were going to do vanishing rock but conditions weren't so good so we did Thumb rock instead. Dives were both great!

DIVE BVI is without an equal. Too many sights to list.
Enjoy!

The Indians. Although you might save them for a snorkeling day, as they are plenty cool snorkeling.

Thanks everyone, this is really helpful. Sounds like Dive BVI is the way to go. I agree that its really best to wait to see what conditions are like, makes total sense. I can't wait.
