I was in BVI for a sailing class, based at Nanny Cay on Tortola (Rob Swain
Sailing School, www.swainsailing.com, which I recommend for anyone
interested in "bareboating"). The sailing school referred me to
Blue Water Divers, which has one shop at Nanny Cay and another at Soper's
Hole. My experience with Blue Water Divers was entirely positive. The staff
in the shop and on the boat - mainly British ex-pats - were very competent,
professional, and friendly. Dive briefings were comprehensive, and the
staff checked each diver's equipment after it was set up and again before
divers entered the water. The boat carried oxygen. The dive sites, Santa
Monica Rock and Angel Fish, were both nice. 

The rest of the trip I was in sailing school, but I rented a tank from the
shop, dove several more times from our boat (at the Caves on Norman Island,
and Cistern Point on Cooper Island), and got the tank refilled at other BVI
dive shops when we docked. I did not have time to dive the Rhone.
