Snorkeling and Scuba Diving at R.M.S. Rhone

Probably the most popular wreck of all British Virgin Islands dive sites! The RMS Rhone was a British packet ship owned by the Royal Mail Steam Packet Company. She was wrecked off the coast of Salt Island in the British Virgin Islands on October 29, 1867 during a hurricane. She was split in two and sunk directly off of Black Rock Point. Her bow now lies in about 80 feet of water while her stern is in about 30.Over one hundred passengers and crew were lost. She was 310' long, 40' wide, and driven by a 600 hp compound engine. At the time of her loss, she was just two years old and her captain was Robert Wooley. Today she is one of the Caribbean's most popular scuba diving sites, and a park has been created around the wreck. Source: Wikipedia.org West of Salt Island
