Owner description: Park that encompasses the wreck of the HMS Rhone, a mail ship that sunk during a hurricane in 1867, and Dead Chest Island, both great dive sites.
Reviewed 6 July 2013

Besides the wreck, there is lots of fish life. Our dive masters, Tony and Kate, lead a fascinating tour in and through the wreck, pointing out things of special interest.

I have been diving on quite few wrecks in the past and the HMS Rhone is one of the best. Did the bow section first - with great swimthroughs and then the stern - that enormous bronze propeller and rudder are quite a site when you turn around after swimming between two of the blades. The history of the ship and the story of its loss in a hurricane - and then the dive itself is quite an event. A "must do" if you visit the BVI

Was fascinating, but would have rather dived it. The day we went it was overcast and rough water, so visibility wasn't great.

The RMS Rhone lies in 78' (bow) to 40' (stern) of water. There is a swim through of the forward half of the ship (don't do it if you aren't prepared for an overhead environment, but it is a short swim through and exits are always visible). Lots of coral growth and fish life around the wreck. Lots of great angles and colours for photography around this wreck. It takes two dives to do it justice. We dove with Blue Water Diver's, and they had knowledgable, safety oriented staff, on the dive.

We didn't have scuba gear but much of the ship is shallow enough that snorkeling is just fine. If you have a boat it's worth stopping & taking a dip in the water.
