RMS Rhone, Salt Island
(4.8/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
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. It couldn't be easier to arrange your visit to RMS Rhone and many more British Virgin Islands attractions: make an itinerary online using Inspirock's British Virgin Islands tourist route planner.

  • We snorkeled here with the kids and the kids loved it. We could only see part of the ship because the other part broke off and sank in a deeper part of the ocean. You would have to scuba dive to see t...  more »
