Most visitors arrive via the international airport in San Juan, Puerto Rico (code: SJU). There are direct flights to North, Central and South America, and several countries in the Caribbean and Europe. From San Juan, you can board a local flight (30-40 minutes) to Terrence B. Lettsome Airport (EIS) in BVI. These flights are operated by Air Sunshine, Cape Air and Seabourne Airlines. Alternatively you can fly in to St. Thomas (code: STT) in the US Virgin Islands and then take a regular public ferry to Tortola (1 hour), or fly in via St. Croix, or St. Maarten/St. Martin.
Arrival/Boarding/Departure: The Cuan Law uses the Public Dock in Road Town, Tortola, the BVI capital and main shopping area. Guests arrive and board during the morning on the Sunday in time for noon departure. Transfers are not provided since local regulations only allow tourists to be picked up from the airport by registered taxis. It is approximately 30 minutes from the airport to the dock. We recommend arriving the day before and staying at one of the local hotels.
The last dive of the trip will be during the morning on the Friday. The vessel returns to Tortola on Saturday morning in time for disembarkation at 10 am. Please wait at least 18 hours before flying after diving.

Diving Environment: The turquoise waters of the British Virgin Islands are home to 14 protected areas dedicated to conserving the beautiful coral gardens, many shipwrecks, seamounts, caverns, caves, canyons and boulder formations.

The RMS Rhone shipwreck is located at Salt Island and is known as one of the best wreck dives in the world. The Rhone was a 310 foot (95m) long, iron-hulled steamship that slammed in to a rock during a hurricane in 1867 and broke into 2 sections - the stern rests at a depth of 35 feet (10m) and the bow lies at 80 feet (25m). Nearly every surface of the ship is covered in a kaleidoscope of corals. Divers will see its massive bronze propeller, drive shaft and 100-pound wrenches. Numerous artifacts include black-and-white tiles, silver teaspoons, glass and metalworks. Coral gardens, cleaning stations and nurseries fill the ship’s holds. Schools of yellowtail snapper, jacks, grunts, and tarpon can be found here. Macro life includes arrow carbs, shrimps, lobsters and octopus. Night dives can be especially fantastic on the Rhone.
