Sample Itinerary: BVI Wreck Week
This is a sample itinerary for BVI Wreck Week from the charter yacht
Promenade, a 65' trimaran, that offers SCUBA Diving and other fun
TRIMARAN PROMENADE'S SAMPLE ITINERARY FOR BVI
This is a sample itinerary ONLY. We have two wrecks on Anegada Reef,
the Parametta and the Rocus, that we will dive if the weather
conditions allow. We do, however, guarantee to hit as many wrecks as we
can in the time as we can and to do unlimited diving.
Board Promenade anytime after 4 pm at Village Cay Marina in
Roadtown. The first night will be spent on dock, allowing you to
participate in any kick-off parties, and you can choose to have dinner
and breakfast at any of our local restaurants. (This is a
"sleep aboard" night so tonight's dinner and tomorrow's breakfast
services are NOT included in the package price).
will serve a light lunch while sailing over to the wreck of the
FEARLESS outside Great Harbor on Peter Island to do our first wreck
dive. We will anchor for the evening at Little Harbor on Peter Island.
After breakfast, we will dive Carrot Rock on the outside of
Peter Island, one of our favorite dive sites, with pinnacles reaching
from 70 feet up to the surface. Lunch will be at White Bay at Peter
Island with time for a beach excursion or snorkeling trip before we
dive “Brown Pants” on the outside of Norman Island, or Santa Monica
Rock (so named for the Santa Monica that hit the pinnacles here on
April 29, 1783 and subsequently sank at Water Creek on St John). We
will anchor for the night at Privateer Bay on Norman Island. This
anchorage is also known as the Caves at Treasure Point and the setting
of Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island.
After a snorkel before breakfast with all the Glassy Eyed
Sweepers in the caves, we will take a short hop over to the Indians (so
named as they look like an Indian's feathered headdress from a
distance), where we will do a dive before sailing up to Salt Island for
lunch. After hearing the history of the wreck of the Rhone, we will
dive the Rhone in the afternoon. We'll have an after-dinner SCUBA to
watch the turtles sleeping underneath the wreck, and see lobsters and
crabs wandering around. This, bar none, is not only the best wreck dive
in the Caribbean, but also in the Top 5 Dives of the World. We will
anchor overnight on Salt Island.
Up and in the water for an early pre-breakfast
dive before anyone else has a chance to disturb the wreck. This will
cap off our SCUBA diving on the RMS Rhone. Additional wrecks planned
for our diving agenda today: the Beatta, the Inganess, the Marie L, and
Weather permitting, we
sail out to the wreck of the CHIKUZEN, our second most famous wreck. We
will dive the Chikuzen before lunch and again after lunch before taking
a leisurely sunset sail into Muskmelon Bay on Guana Island, one of our
favorite deserted anchorages. Or, perhaps we will head out to the Rocus
and the Parametta? It all depends on the weather! A night dive is
planned for those interested.
Day 7After a breakfast spent watching the pelicans circling over
filled with a gazillion bait fish, we will go around to the outside to
dive Grand Central Station. Grand Central Station is so named for the
many fish that converge around here, and it is capped up by a
spectacular large cave that goes through the island at about 60 feet.
Perhaps this afternoon will be a good time to visit the Baths?
Day 8Sadly, it is time to sail back to the marina, disembark and
paradise, albeit with great memories. We will be back in the marina by
mid-morning so, for those divers with flights that leave later on in
the day, your luggage can be stored while you shop and explore Roadtown.
