  Seal Dog Islands: Virgin Gorda

Seal Dog Islands Dive Site Virgin Gorda BVI

DEPTH: 20-8O FEET (6-18 M)


The bottom beneath the mooring is around 25 feet, and slopes down to about 70 feet. Pause here to look around for large pelagic fish passing through from the open Atlantic. Jacks, mackerel, kingfish and perhaps an eagle ray or two might promenade by. Along the bottom of the cliff off the northwest side of the island are fantastic rock formations made up of monster boulders and the convoluted bedrock of the island itself. Take the time to explore the myriad of canyons, swim-throughs, ledges and tiny caves.

There is a breaking rock just to the northeast of the two Seal Dog Islands, called Seal Dog Rock. The dive is a circumnavigation of the rock exploring the steep walls and looking out into the blue for passing pelagics. It is an exciting place to be, perched on a pinnacle situated on the edge of the Virgin Islands.

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!
