Destinations & Sample Itineraries
BVI Wreck Week
This is a sample itinerary for BVI Wreck Week from the charter yacht Promenade, a popular 65' trimaran, that offered SCUBA Diving and other fun activities. Unfortunately this yacht is no longer with us after the passing of Hurricane Irma.
This is a sample itinerary ONLY. We have two wrecks on Anegada Reef, the Parametta and the Rocus, that we will dive if the weather conditions allow. We do, however, guarantee to hit as many wrecks as we can in the time as we can and to do unlimited diving.

Board Promenade anytime after 4 pm at Village Cay Marina in Roadtown. The first night will be spent on dock, allowing you to participate in any kick-off parties, and you can choose to have dinner and breakfast at any of our local restaurants. (This is a "sleep aboard" night so tonight's dinner and tomorrow's breakfast services are NOT included in the package price).
Promenade will serve a light lunch while sailing over to the wreck of the FEARLESS outside Great Harbor on Peter Island to do our first wreck dive. We will anchor for the evening at Little Harbor on Peter Island.
After breakfast, we will dive Carrot Rock on the outside of Peter Island, one of our favorite dive sites, with pinnacles reaching from 70 feet up to the surface. Lunch will be at White Bay at Peter Island with time for a beach excursion or snorkeling trip before we dive "Brown Pants" on the outside of Norman Island, or Santa Monica Rock (so named for the Santa Monica that hit the pinnacles here on April 29, 1783 and subsequently sank at Water Creek on St John). We will anchor for the night at Privateer Bay on Norman Island. This anchorage is also known as the Caves at Treasure Point and the setting of Robert Louis Stevenson's Treasure Island.
After a snorkel before breakfast with all the Glassy Eyed Sweepers in the caves, we will take a short hop over to the Indians (so named as they look like an Indian's feathered headdress from a distance), where we will do a dive before sailing up to Salt Island for lunch. After hearing the history of the wreck of the Rhone, we will dive the Rhone in the afternoon. We'll have an after-dinner SCUBA to watch the turtles sleeping underneath the wreck, and see lobsters and crabs wandering around. This, bar none, is not only the best wreck dive in the Caribbean, but also in the Top 5 Dives of the World. We will anchor overnight on Salt Island.
Up and in the water for an early pre-breakfast dive before anyone else has a chance to disturb the wreck. This will cap off our SCUBA diving on the RMS Rhone. Additional wrecks planned for our diving agenda today: the Beatta, the Inganess, the Marie L, and the Pat.
Weather permitting, we sail out to the wreck of the CHIKUZEN, our second most famous wreck. We will dive the Chikuzen before lunch and again after lunch before taking a leisurely sunset sail into Muskmelon Bay on Guana Island, one of our favorite deserted anchorages. Or, perhaps we will head out to the Rocus and the Parametta? It all depends on the weather! A night dive is planned for those interested.
After a breakfast spent watching the pelicans circling over this bay filled with a gazillion bait fish, we will go around to the outside to dive Grand Central Station. Grand Central Station is so named for the many fish that converge around here, and it is capped up by a spectacular large cave that goes through the island at about 60 feet. Perhaps this afternoon will be a good time to visit the Baths?
Sadly, it is time to sail back to the marina, disembark and leave paradise, albeit with great memories. We will be back in the marina by mid-morning so, for those divers with flights that leave later on in the day, your luggage can be stored while you shop and explore Roadtown.
