The Wreck of The RMS Rhone- Salt Island
Certainly the most popular and well known of all BVI dive sites, the Royal Mail Steamer “Rhone” was the setting for the hit movie “The Deep”, starring Nick Nolte and Jacqueline Bissett. The wreck itself is fascinating to explore with parts of her still in tact. The Rhone foundered during a hurricane and is lying in depths from 20 to 80 feet. She is colourfully decorated by a wide variety of corals and is home to several resident barracuda, sea turtles, stingrays, angelfish, yellowtail snappers and many other varieties of fish life visit the Rhone. This is a “must see.”
This is considered and advanced dive. You do not have to be certified as an Advanced Dive. However we require that you have diving in the past 3 years. If its been more than 3 years we ask that you join us on a 2 tank dive to our beautiful reefs before going to the RMS RHONE.
