  The Aquarium: Virgin Gorda

The Aquarium Dive Site Virgin Gorda BVI

DEPTH: 15-30 FEET (5-9 M)


Just between Spanish Town and the Baths is a shallow shoal of a reef with pillar coral formations, shy schools of French grunts and moray eels tucked under ledges. It's not a large site, but a slow circumnavigation and thorough exploration of the reef should use up a tank. The Aquarium is rather densely textured with lots of rocks and boulders piled up on one another creating a network of small grottos and dens filled with fishes. Sergeant majors, blue tang and chromis fill the mid-water region. Sponges, fire coral and various crawling invertebrates cover the rocks. Nurse sharks can be found napping under the larger ledges.

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!
