Near Norman Island and beside Pelican Island is a wonderful place to snorkel named “The Indians”.
From a distance, these four tall rock formations look somewhat like an Indian headdress! This is a great place to snorkel and dive.
After “The Indians” on to Peter Island where we may set anchor in Dead Man’s Bay. Enjoy a lovely swim at this world class beach or partake in a sumptuous buffet lunch at the beach bar. Its expensive by some standards, but well worth it if you bring a healthy appetite! Their deserts are a gastronomic delight!
Grab your snorkel gear and check out the sea grass beds right below your yacht. With any luck, you will spot a sea turtle or two, lazily snacking on the sea grass.
Salt Island is fun to investigate. Its a great hike to the ridge where a fantastic view awaits you. There’s a natural salt pond located inland and a very tiny settlement of British Virgin Islanders who used to collect sea salt. Unfortunately, the last remaining resident, Norwell Durant, passed away in 2004. Salt Island, BVI is home to the Wreck of the Rhone and is a favorite dive site. The Rhone was a British Royal Mail steamship which foundered during a hurricane in the BVI in 1867. The British Virgin Islands and the Rhone were made famous in 1977 as the location for the movie, “The Deep”.
Sail on to Cooper Island and we pick up a mooring ball. The Cooper Island Beach Club has a very nice restaurant and bar too!
