With industry and commerce on the islands now split almost equally between tourism and the flourishing offshore financial sector, BVI residents are keen to see their islands develop as a destination for discerning dive travelers. Geography The BVI's tourism slogan is ''Nature's Little Secrets" and it's easy to see why. Pride runs deep in the fact that these unspoiled islands offer a wonderful opportunity to discover hidden natural splendors. Much of what the region has to offer is preserved for today's visitors and for future generations in 11 areas managed by the BVI National Parks Trust.

Dive Operators Like the USVI, BVI dive operators love exposing dive travelers to the diving off their islands. They are all friendly and generally more relaxed and less busy than many operators on more dive-intensive islands in the Caribbean. With so many excellent operators, it's easy to choose one or more companies for their convenience, offerings, and style. A wide array of packages that include diving, accommodations, dining, and more can make per-dive costs much lower. You may want to try dives with a few operators and then purchase a package with your favorite one.

Their work has been widely purchased and published. Page 31 Page 32 Dive Sites The BVI lie at the edge of a huge underwater shelf that extends some 85 miles from Puerto Rico before dropping off in the Atlantic to the north and the Caribbean to the south. Most of the sport diving in the BVI is on that shelf, where many fascinating wrecks and spectacular underwater formations are at a reasonable depth for divers. The compactness of the BVI is a big advantage. The entire chain extends for 35 miles along Sir Francis Drake Channel and even dive sites considered remote are within a half-hour of the islands of Tortola or Virgin Gorda.
