Not serviced by big airline companies and difficult to get to, this place is truly "Nature's Little Secret". Because Tortola isn't well know with the big crowds is exactly why one should visit the main island of the British Virgin Islands. No “dived-out” reefs, poorly trained divemasters or poor quality of air in your tank. The most popular sites are all located around Norman Island, Pelican Island, Deadchest Island, Peter Island and
Cooper Island. But certainly the most popular and well known of all BVI dive sites, the Royal Mail Steamer "Rhone" was the setting for the hit movie "The Deep", starring Nick Nolte and Jacqueline Bissett. British Virgin Islands: relaxed untouched diving at it's best!

The BVI's high travel season is from December to April. But November, early December and May are good times to visit too, as hotel prices are lower and cruise ships are fewer. Though the islands get less than 50 inches of rain each year, count on brief tropical showers between July and November. Hurricane season peaks in August and September (mostly the latter).
Terrence B. Lettsome Airport (Airport Code = EIS) located on Beef Island is the International Airport. There are no direct fights from Europe or the United States. All flights connect through another Caribbean airport such as San Juan (SJU), St. Thomas (STT), Antigua, St. Kitts or St. Maarten/St. Martin (SXM).
