  Ginger Steps: Ginger Island

Ginger Steps Dive Site Ginger Island BVI

DEPTH: 35-100 FEET (11-30 M)


Ginger Steps is composed of a series of huge ledges cascading down from the shallows to 100 feet. The visibility here is normally very good. Beautiful tube sponges and sea fans grace the leading edges of the tops of the ledges. Below, look for squirrelfishes, small grunts and damselfishes. The sand between the drop-offs is so brilliantly white that the whole site seems to glow. Down deeper, schools of pale snapper and grunts congregate in the hollows between the corals. Barracudas and juvenile angelfishes loiter around the tiny coral heads scattered in the sand beneath the mooring.

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!
