Wall to Wall Dive Site Virgin Gorda BVI

DEPTH: 15-65 FEET (15-20 M)


Wall to Wall, on the southwest corner of West Dog, was so named because the marine life there can be so abundant that sometimes it's just "wall to wall" with fish.

Stretch out on the sand and peer deeply back into the coral and rock recesses looking for spotted rock lobster, juvenile angelfishes and lacy crinoids. There may even be a sleeping nurse shark tucked in, with just its tail sticking out or perhaps an octopus changing colors as it scurries along the reef. The corals here are healthy because they are spared the onslaught of the wintertime north swell. To find the schools of fish, head out southwest, descending down the slope. There's a canyon that cuts through the slope, and a I little deeper at 45 feet (14 m) or so, there are some boulders and more undercut ledges. This is where the "tons o' fish" are.

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!
