  Alice in Wonderland: Ginger Island

Alice in Wonderland Dive Site Ginger Island BVI


LEVEL: Novice / Intermediate

Just off the dramatic rocky ledges of Ginger Island is a lush garden of Star Corals and Brain Corals. Huge mushroom-shaped coral heads adorn the long fingers of reef that protrude out from the shoreline. The coral here is healthy and happy and offers shelter to many unusual inhabitants. Extremely large puggerfish have been spotted here as well as Barracuda, colorful Parrotfish, Squirrilfish, Angel Fish, Rock Beauties and schools of snappers that hover in formation.

Known for its clear, blue water, visibility here often exceeds 100 feet. Spotted Eagle Rays, Southern Stingrays, Hawksbill Turtles and Crevalle Jacks are not uncommon.

The sandy bottom starts at about 80 feet and divers can swim up into the many rocky ridges and sandy canyons that will surprise with every turn. The reef is beautiful at all'll want to wind your way up the canyons so you don't miss a thing. Check under the ridges for huge lobster and sleeping Nurse Sharks

ONBOARD diving from a charter yacht is by far the best choice if you are planning a scuba diving trip in the Virgin Islands:

Your Captain will help you choose the perfect dive site - you sail up to the site - hook up to a mooring ball - dive in some of the world's best diving waters, and when you're done you climb back aboard your yacht to be met by the chef with a most welcome snack.

No need to wait for a commercial dive operator - then getting on a stinky diesel dive boat with strangers and taking time to get to and from the dive site - using up half the day.

Nothing beats a USVI or BVI catamaran yacht charter for ease and convenience when Scuba Diving in the Virgin Islands.

An awesome liveaboard scuba diving experience you will never forget!
