Went on scuba dive to Wreck of the Rhone without much prior knowledge of the wreck. Blue Divers was great at preparing us for both the history and the possibility of strong currents. Despite having to exert some effort against the latter, the wreck is an amazing site, dramatic to behold. Well worth the trip.

You can use the yellow buoys for Scuba but be nice to the Commercial Dive boats because they do have first priority but I have never been kicked off the yellow buoys. The farthest yellow buoy on to the south is right over the stern section. 3 yellow buoys to the south is about the bow section. If you park... More

The Rhone Wreck is on the Northeast Corner of Salt Cay, it is a national park so you can only stay on a mooring buoy for 90 minutes. We grabbed our snorkel get and headed for the wreck, it was about a 25 yard swim to the start of the wreck. It was a huge freighter and started in about... More

We dove here last week and had the place to ourselves. Saw two very large sting rays as well as a nice sized Caribbean reef shark. Great place to explore.

This spot was a unique place to snorkel! It was cool seeing the sunken ship, but there was also a lot of great wildlife to be viewed.

I scuba dived the Rhone while on a week long sail. I was a little unsure at first as I am a fairly new diver. However, the Rhone was beautiful. This was my first wreck dive and since I am only certified to 60 feet, I only dove the stern section of the wreck. There were lots of fish. The... More

Lots of history! Sail Caribbean Divers is the best for this dive. Be sure and get the full history of the wreck.

My daughter and I dove on our own at the Rhone from our chartered catamaran. Great visibility and an amazing amount of life at this wreck. I was surprised how close to Salt Island this wreck is - its literally right off the rocky shore. Amazing how large the propeller is. A few areas to swim through. We saw an... More

Our captain "Mike" took us snorkeling over the Rhone on our Festiva Sailing trip. A must see/do when you are in the BVI's!
