Comments Peter Island offers world-class service and excellent meals. This is a grat resort with beautiful beaches. Diving in the BVIs is very good- waters are part of a protected underwater park.

Diving was very relaxed and divemasters took care of tank changes and carried and set-up equipment in the mornings. Coral conditions were actually much better than expected- coral is quickly recovering from latest Caribbean bleaching event. In the first 2 dives, I was the only diver in the boat. Saw eagle rays, large stingrays, lobsters, turtles, a large 4' cobia, tunicates a-plenty, clinging crabs, jawfish, and the usual Caribbean reef fish, including queen triggerfish.

For those looking for a pampered diving vacation with excellent service, great meals and superb beaches, look no further! And Randy Keil's (dive shop owner) enthusiasm for diving is truly contagious.
