Great visibility
Apr. 2021
The shipwreck was used in the GREAT 1977 movie “THE DEEP” with Robert Shaw, Nick Nolte and Jacqueline Bisset (wow Tom really liked Jacqueline's wet T-shirt).

The wreck is a GREAT DIVE in gin clear water (100 ft. + visibility). The inside of the bow section is best explored via SCUBA, but it is a nice snorkel as the water is so clear. The snorkel over the stern (which is in a little shallower water) is interesting (lots of Machinery), but a mess as that part of the iron ship was later blown up by the government because it presented a navigation hazard (just below the water) in this sheltered bay / point of the island!

Good dive site with shark, turtles etc. Suited to divers of all ages and abilities, and it is possible to snorkel the stern but I would only suggest that on a day with good visibility.

Great as a first wreck dive

OK, but not masses of marine life

Snorkeled here in Feb 2020. It was interesting snorkeling over the wreck but saw very little of interest other than this, not may fish or coral. I would have been disappointed if this had been the sole reason for our boat trip.

Amazing snorkeling!
Feb. 2020 • Friends
Amazing snorkeling and diving! There are a lot of mooring balls, and the site was not affected by the hurricane at all. Great dive/snorkel site, and we were able to spend about half an hour on the wreck and hung out in the bay for lunch and swimming. People were on shore too, so think hiking is definitely good here too!

Great for scuba or snorkeling
Nov. 2019
We were very excited by how much of the wreck we could see using only snorkeling gear. Saw lots of tropical fish and a sea turtle on the wreck. Good snorkeling in the rocks surrounding the wreck as well.

Awesome diving with a massive dose of history too!
Dec. 2018
As we were only visiting the BVI, and Road Town for a matter of hours, I literally rolled my scuba kit off our cruise ship and onto the dive boat that took a small group of divers and try divers over to Coopers Rest, and then after the try divers left us to do some orientation, we headed out to Salt Island, and got wet on the remains of the wreck of RMS Rhone, and then after the S.I went with the try divers to undertake another visit to the Titantic of the Carribean. Great experience :)

Not as complete as before the storm but always a great dive.

Family of divers with varied experience, nice thing is the wreck is over varied depths. We saw turtles and reef sharks there too, so exciting to be swimming with them in such a lovely setting.

Amazing
Jul. 2019
This was my first wreck dive and I am amazed. I would now prefer to dive wrecks versus reefs. All kinds of fish, a few sharks and an amazing story about the Rhone.

Wreck dive.
Mar. 2019
Great dive location and also snorkel location. Be careful of currents and heavy winds. You must more up to a mooring ball.
