The Island Hopper tour combined two of my favorite island activities; snorkeling and drinking. Our tour began at Scrub Island Resort, where the Dive BVI picked several of us up joining the tour that originated on Virgin Gorda. I was a little taken aback by the arrival of a less than luxurious boat, having been on many snorkel adventures by... More

We absolutely loved the Island Hopper excursion that departed from Scrub Island! We went to 4 locations throughout the day - 2 WOW snorkel spots, lunch at Willy T's and Jost Van Dyke. You pay for your own food and drinks at Willy T's and JVD, but the onboard food and drinks are included - all you can drink beer,... More

Yes, a very organized dive shop, punctual and Becca was a good teacher. However what was missed was her lack of knowledge of Padi requirements. I had never been in open water before and was looking to become certified. After each dive she found something that was not correct and had me start on dive 1 again. I filled my... More

Its been nearly a year since I dove with DIVE BVI and this time I brought my 17 year old Grandson with me to get his advanced open water certification. I chose Dive BVI because the last time I dove with them I was very impressed with some of the training of young people they were doing. This time and... More

The title pretty much explains it. Early January my family and I visited Virgin Gorda to fill some tanks for our sail/diving trip. We were told to leave the tanks by the compressor and to pay upfront. We paid $8 per tank I believe. It took hours to fill the tanks but we didn't care as we were staying the... More

Man, that really stinks! I'm so sorry that happened on your trip. We do our best to check our tanks with a gauge before they leave the airfill station. This is a very important step in the pre-dive process. I know there's not anything I can do about it now (would loved to have known when it happened so we... More

Jeff and Casey run a marvelous shop situated primarily on Virgin Gorda, and they run daily boats all over the British Virgin Islands to such sites as the marvelous wreck of the Rhone and Jacques Cousteau's personal favorite, the Chimney. There is an embarrassment of riches to see here, and these are the guys to use to get there. Their... More

Our captain was hilarious and both of the staff that snorkeled with us were helpful and informative. I was worried 3 hours wouldn't be enough but it was two snorkel stops.

Dive BVI (Scrub Island) was the highlight of our vacation. Clayvorne and her team are top notch...we went on three trips in three days and each was better than the next (Virgin Gorda, Island Hopper and Anegada)...We cannot say enough good things about their operation. As this was our first time in the BVI, this was a great, stress-free way... More

The BVI dive team was professional and organized. Their equiptment was top notch, and the dive team was experienced and friendly. We had great finds - and the Rhone shipwreck is a terrific site. We took the Sea Monkey as a charter for a 2 family dive with divers from ages 14-52- and we all loved it! Thanks Dive BVI!... More
