Dive in RMS Rhone from one of our BVI Crewed Catamarans

The British Virgin Islands are one of the warmest and relaxed destinations in wintertime, many boats offer scuba diving facilities so your catamaran charter BVI is that little bit more special and exciting. The Wreck of the Rhone is the only Marine National Park in the British Virgin Islands. RMS Rhone, a Royal Mail Steamer, which sunk in 1867, is the most celebrated dive site in the BVI.


The park includes examples of fringing reef habitat and sea grass beds. RMS Rhone lies in two parts in crystal clear waters between 30 and 90 feet deep. Much of the vessel is still intact and visible, including decking, parts of the rigging, the steam engine, and her propeller.

Over the years, the sunken boat has blended in with the bottom, creating an artificial reef.
