Comments Have been diving with Low Key for 2 years now and was getting tired of the same sites. Other operator was not doing the Rhone while I was there so booed with Low Key again and that was fine. If staying anywhere near town they are an easy walk to & from. If you bring own gear DM's will leave you alone and only help if asked other than to give your weights. The boat ride is ok except for the stop at customs/immigration at the BVI. The $45 fee is excessive considering you never even touch the ground. The Rhone is the Rhone and it is a great dive location. The swim through are great, and if you know the backstory even a tad morbid on the bow section. Would like to have seen it before it was "modified" due to being a hazard to navigation in the past.
