Reef Ship Must See
Dive into the depths and visit RMS Rhone, a wrecked Royal Mail vessel that sunk in a hurricane in 1867. Now a haunting and beautiful home to marine life, the wreck is an excellent place to observe the natural wonders of the sea. If you snorkel, you can get a reasonable view from the surface, but try a full dive with a team to get up close and personal with it, and to also learn the background of the dramatic events that led to this unusual marine life habitat. To visit RMS Rhone and get the most from your holiday in British Virgin Islands, create itinerary details personal to you using our British Virgin Islands trip planner .
