Diving - The Drop Off BVI

Responsive image

DEPTH: 70-130 feet (21-40 M)


A unique BVI site called the Drop-Off is only dived from Cuan Law. The dive is made on a ledge in about 70 feet of water, away from the island group - out where the bottom begins to drop off into seriously deep water. 

The underwater landscape is very different here. A gently sloping reef dominated by very large Barrel Sponges and luxuriant sea rods leads to the drop-off itself, a wall between 70 and 90 feet. The wall is patrolled by silver schools of Horse-eye Jacks and Atlantic Spadefish.
