Rhone Marine Park (Salt Island), British Virgin Islands Overview

A distinctive place like no other, Rhone Marine Park in Salt Island is where visitors will get to have a glance at the wreck of RMS Rhone while snorkelling.

Salt Island is a T-shaped island where the salt making is the main activity; however, the Rhone Marine Park is the major attraction of the place. During a hurricane in 1867, the mail ship Rhone bumped off the rocks at the southwest coast. Currently, it serves as a national park where remains of the steamer are extensive (it lies in two sections in the waters between 9m (30ft) and 27m (90ft) deep) making it a hotspot for best wreck dives in the entire Caribbean. The clear water here offers a good opportunity for snorkelling at the wreck site.
