  Angelfish Reef: Norman Island

Angelfish Reef Dive Site Norman Island BVI

On the lee side of Norman Island is a spectacular rocky maze of canyons and ridges that finger off into the sandy bottom. It will be a tough decision to set your camera up for wide angle or macro because there is so much opportunity for both. Large sharks have been spotted here, as have sleeping Nurse Sharks, and large green eels. There are lobster here that are so big, you'll be reluctant to get too close! On the smaller side, tiny crabs, baby eels and stealth shrimp can be found living in the many anemones.At night this reef comes alive with vibrant color. The delicate orange ball anemone can be found under protected ridges near the sandy bottom. Don't miss out on the tiny critters that lurk on the sandy bottom and in the grassy area. The stingrays are easy to spot, but you'll need to look close to see the many beautiful species of shrimps, anemones, and crustacean.

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!
