Divers should adhere to all accepted and local rules and etiquette for preserving the reef. Take only pictures and leave only bubbles. 1. Wreck of the Rocus,Anegada (20'-40'; novice to expert): Unlike the rest of the tropical and mountainous BVI, Anegada is a flat and rather barren island. The great diving is just being explored and the wreck of the Rocus provides a perfect introduction to the wide variety of wrecks and reef formations off Anegada's coast. This freighter sank in 1929 and has thus broken apart in some places.

The pinnacles rise from the bottom to within a few feet of the surface and attract an incredible variety and quantity of fish. Every dive here is different, thanks to the many encounters with passing fish. 3. Wreck of the Chikuzen,Virgin Gorda (35'-75'; intermediate to expert): This large ship, lying about nine miles off the coast of Virgin Gorda, is a special wreck dive. The Chikuzen was sunk intentionally in 1981 and is now packed with coral life. The full 246-foot length of this vessel is teeming with fish of every description.

Page 26 Diving Diving in the BVI is special. Though not as well known as other Caribbean or worldwide diving destinations, the diving can be as good and as interesting as anywhere in the world. Diverse diving and many topside attractions make the BVI one of the best spots for smart dive travelers. Diving conditions are typically ideal for all experience levels, with warm water, calm seas, and excellent visibility. Many of the reefs and wrecks of the BVI are in relatively shallow water. All operators will require presentation of your C-card, while some may request a review of your logbook or check-out dive.
