Rhone National Marine Park, Road Town
(4.7/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
The first and only marine national park in the British Virgin Islands, Rhone National Marine Park represents a major opportunity for scuba divers. The park centers around the wreck of the HMS Rhone, a mail ship that sunk during a hurricane in 1867. Abundant marine life, historical interest, and several intact sections of the ship make diving here a memorable experience. Several diving operators run daily excursions to the park, letting you snorkel or plunge deep below the surface. Look for the "lucky porthole" whose glass survived the shipwreck intact. Add Rhone National Marine Park to your Road Town travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Road Town holiday planner.

  • 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.
