Tortola offers some of the best SCUBA Diving excursions in the Caribbean. Everyone from a hardened SCUBA Diver to someone who is interested in taking a course will find what they’re looking for here. Some of the many famous reef sites such as Cooper Island, The Indians and the renown R.M.S Rhone ship wreck (major hot spot), are just a few of the great locations to dive. Some of our guests enjoy renting their own SCUBA equipment (license required), and SCUBA diving right in front of Fort Recovery which has one of the most lush and teaming reefs on the island. Sea life is plentiful and many a story comes back from our guests spotting giant sea turtles, sting rays, amazing schools of fish, eels, barracuda, the occasional friendly small reef shark (a very passive and sought after fish for an exciting trip) and some of the most beautiful coral to be found. Many of Fort Recovery guests enjoy renting equipment and/or going on spectacular SCUBA diving excursions with Blue Water Divers, located in Nanny Cay (10 minute drive from Hotel), because of their great service and superb expertiseGolf on St Thomas
