  The Playground: Jost Van Dyke

The Playground Dive Site Jost Van Dyke BVI



This is a National Park zone that is known to be one of the best dive sites in the BVI... without a doubt! This Atlantic site is quite large and can actually be made into two separate dives. Seamount style large boulders create the perfect environment for a large variety of diverse fish life. The bottom of the ocean is covered in excellent corals and gorgonians and the visibility is generally good. On the north side you will see exciting pinnacles enveloped by vibrantly colored sponges, hydroid fans and corals, which are home to fascinating saltwater species. Comprised of large rocks and coral heads in deepwater, pelagics, Atlantic Manta Rays, Spotted Eagle Rays, reef and nurse sharks are common. Watch for Angel fish, Parrot fish, dog snappers, reef squids and the small red lip blenny. Occasional current and heavy swell. 70 ft max depth; however, most of the dive is 25-35 ft.

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!
