Cuan Law

 

BVI Dive Overview

We have over 100 dive sites in the British Virgin Islands! This a small selection of the 100 plus dive sites we may visit upon your cruise on the diving liveaboard Cuan Law! The British Virgin Islands are known for some of the best shipwreck dives in the world including the shipwreck RMS Rhone and the shipwreck Chikuzen.

Scuba Diving on the CUAN LAW is a breeze- and you’ll handle your tanks as little as possible. There are at least two instructors among the crew who will take your BC and regulator set on day one and set up your gear for you. All diving is down from dive tenders. For each dive, you’ll approach the dive tank deck and slip into your gear. A short walk to the inflatable speedboat and you are off! Personal gear (masks, etc) is stored in your own bin which is beneath the seating in the aft deck so it is well out of the way during the day. We offer 63, 80 and 100 size tanks and fill with 3,000 psi so you always have a full tank.

On our dive charters, we can offer as many as three dives a day and one night dive daily. Friday, we offer two dives before the beach BBQ. Nitrox is available for a fee of 10.00 per dive or 120.00 for the week.

Water temperatures in the BVI’s range from 78-82 (25c -28c) year round so plan accordingly for wetsuit coverage. Everyone is different but a light wetsuit may be desirable when diving 3 to 4 times per day! We have two rinse tanks and a freshwater shower hose on the back deck.

 

 

 

Dive Sites

  • RMS RHONE - 10-65 feet (3-20 M). Considered one of the world’s best shipwreck dives, the RHONE, a commissioned Royal mail steamship, sunk during a hurricane way back in 1867. She broke into two parts when the boiler was washed over by cold ocean water and exploded. The stern sank in just 35 feet while the bow drifted and sank a bit deeper in 80 feet. She rests on the bottom off Salt Island. We dedicate a day of diving this amazing wreck as there is so much to see. There are areas that are penetrable where you can still see parts of the boat clearly- even silverware!
  • Angelfish Reef - 20-45 feet (6-14 M). This site is great for both macro and wide-angle photographs. There is a maze of rocky canyons and ridges for you to explore. You’ll typically see turtles, sharks, eels and huge lobsters! On the smaller side, keep your eyes peeled for shrimp, anemones and many crustaceans.
  • The Aquarium - 15-30 feet (5-9 M). Near the Baths is a reef in shallow water that boasts pillar coral formations surrounded by schools of French grunts, eels tucked under ledges and a lot of sea life in a small area. Take your time and use your full tank to enjoy the underwater network of grottos and dens filled with fish!
  • Brown Pants - 10-40 feet (3-12 M). Many years ago, when Annie and Duncan Muirhead were running Misty Law, the first live-aboard in the BVI, they were exploring this point as a possible dive site. Several large bull sharks rounded a corner and chased them back to their boat, and the site was named. There is a point that rises from the flat, barren seafloor and the water is extremely clear here. Look for turtles and eagle rays on your way down out in the blue, then head towards the cliffs where you will find lots of fish in each of the canyons. One canyon has a large open cave for you to explore- the light shines down to reveal all the bright colors of the sponges that grow here.
  • Wreck of the Chikuzen BVI - 40-75 feet (12-23 M). The Chikuzen was a refrigerator vessel from Korea that was based in St Maarten and was there to service the Japanese fishing fleets. Another hurricane came thru in 1981 and since the ship was decrepit, the owners thought it was a good way to scuttle it and get rid of the old junk pile. So they set it on fire and let it go adrift! Unfortunately, she floated towards the Marina Cay area and fearing the safety of both people and the boats, they called in help from neighboring islands to tow it out to sea. The flaming vessel was towed awhile before the line broke. It finally sunk 7 miles off Tortola to the northwest. The shipwreck is too far for landbased dive operators to visit, but the Cuan Law can visit it regularly. She rests in 75 feet of water far from any reef and attracts a great variety of pelagic and reef fish. Her starboard rail reaches 50 feet and can be entered through open hatches.
  • Kodiak Queen - Dive with a kraken - The Kodiak Queen was one of 5 ships to survive the attack on Pearl Harbour. It was prepared as a dive site with a kraken above deck by Richard Branson and sunk in April 2016.
