    Tortola countdown

    Just sent in our deposit for our beach house in Tortola. Got a few months, but does anyone have any advice? We'll be staying in Cane Garden Bay. Thanks.

    Diving in the BVI's is beautiful. Of course make sure you do the iconic wreck of the Rhone.

    And if you have time and love wind-swept, desolate complete peace & quiet isolation, take the ferry to Anegada for the day. Spend the day at Loblolly Bay. It's another world.

    I have to say I agree about the Rhone. It really is a must do dive while its still there! Also check out the move The Deep, 1977 Nick Noltry classic filmed on the Rhone. I would recommend doing a three tank dive in it if you can. it is in two distinct parts so a dive for each area then some OG time at the Baths of Virgin Gorda then a night dive on her. Its one of those experiences that will stay with you for the rest of your life! Also recommend "The Brothers" over by Salt Island not far from the rhone.
    With the privilege of diving, comes the responsibility of conservation. If you dont like this signature I DONT CARE!!!!!!!!

    19 days and counting till 2 weeks in the BVIs! It's finally down to a number I can count to on my fingers and toes! Is it just me, or are the days getting longer? Thanks for the tips so far. FYI, we are staying in the Cane Garden Bay Beach House, and diving with Blue Water Divers. We'll be posting trip reports upon return.

    Sounds like a good trip. Have fun and let us know how it went.

    I once saved a man in Wichita just to watch him dive...(inventor)
