This was an amazing dive. Definitely the one to do if you can only pick one in the BVIs. The wreck is incredible to look at, and there is a ton of interesting sea life in the area. We saw multiple sharks and a turtle. It was also a pretty easy dive, and a bunch of my family went along with us and did it as a discover dive. We went with Sunchaser Scuba who did an amazing job and made everyone feel comfortable even though it was their first time and there were sharks around.
