The title pretty much explains it. Early January my family and I visited Virgin Gorda to fill some tanks for our sail/diving trip. We were told to leave the tanks by the compressor and to pay upfront. We paid $8 per tank I believe. It took hours to fill the tanks but we didn't care as we were staying the... More

Man, that really stinks! I'm so sorry that happened on your trip. We do our best to check our tanks with a gauge before they leave the airfill station. This is a very important step in the pre-dive process. I know there's not anything I can do about it now (would loved to have known when it happened so we... More

Jeff and Casey run a marvelous shop situated primarily on Virgin Gorda, and they run daily boats all over the British Virgin Islands to such sites as the marvelous wreck of the Rhone and Jacques Cousteau's personal favorite, the Chimney. There is an embarrassment of riches to see here, and these are the guys to use to get there. Their... More

Our captain was hilarious and both of the staff that snorkeled with us were helpful and informative. I was worried 3 hours wouldn't be enough but it was two snorkel stops.

Dive BVI (Scrub Island) was the highlight of our vacation. Clayvorne and her team are top notch...we went on three trips in three days and each was better than the next (Virgin Gorda, Island Hopper and Anegada)...We cannot say enough good things about their operation. As this was our first time in the BVI, this was a great, stress-free way... More

The BVI dive team was professional and organized. Their equiptment was top notch, and the dive team was experienced and friendly. We had great finds - and the Rhone shipwreck is a terrific site. We took the Sea Monkey as a charter for a 2 family dive with divers from ages 14-52- and we all loved it! Thanks Dive BVI!... More

First there is the staff- from Clayvorne who worked me into dives when I made my reservations rather late. The Dive staff - Rupert, Soren, Tara, Scott, and Colin. They went out of their way to help make the dive experience safe and informative. They carried slates to let us know what we were seeing. I bit through my mouth... More
