My Top Dive: Wreck of the Rhone, British Virgin Islands

by John
(Florida)

We actually dove this wreck twice - one dive on the bow section and one dive on the stern section. There was lots of marine life on both sections. On the rear section, there is a porthole that the divemaster said was supposed to be a lucky porthole. Everyone rubs this porthole for luck and a section of it is nice and shiny from all the rubbing. I don't know if it means anything, but everyone is down there rubbing that porthole.


On the dive on the bow section of the Rhone you will find the crows nest, the mast and anchors. We swam thru the wreck which was neat. There was a big barracuda during this dive that was baring his fangs. We also saw an octupus hanging out. That was the first octupus I ever saw so it was cool.

We did quite a bit of scuba diving during our vacation here but the Wreck of the Rhone stands out as my favorite.
