Diving Jost Van Dyke
Even though Jost Van Dyke is one of the smallest islands from the BVI islands, it has access to more than 40 diving sites. The most popular diving activities are organized only 6 miles away from the Jost Van Dyke Island where dive sites such as Rhone or the Chikuzen are located. Since this island is very small, there are not many diving centers around. Working close together with the JVD Scuba diving center, we recommend travelers to explore the Caribbean waters which feature diverse marine life.
