JVD Scuba and Eco-Tours
The World renowned Dive Mecca of the British Virgin Islands is pleased to acknowledge that the Northwest out-island territory has finally been opened up for underwater exploration through Jost Van Dyke Scuba. The island of Jost Van Dyke, population 180, has long been known for its picturesque beachfront Caribbean villages and laid back, friendly locals.
Step back in time and experience the Caribbean the way it used to be. A barefoot place where crime does not exist, no one asks you for money, and nature flourishes unrestrained, both above and below the water. Discover the Caribbean’s newest dive destination and the island you have long been looking for!
Where do you dive on Jost Van Dyke?
We have discovered more than 40 unmarked dive sites that expand from the remote islands of Pelican Cay, Great and Little Tobago, Hans Lollick, Green Island, Watson, King and Mercurious Rocks, to the North shores of Jost as well as various offshore seamounts, pinnacles, caves, walls, reefs and wrecks. We also dive bait-balls and offer bluewater big-animal excursions.
What does that mean to you?
These sites have NEVER been commercially dived and are far away from boat traffic; therefore, they are teeming with all varieties of fish and marine life on healthy, living coral reefs and geologic formations! We have thoroughly explored the reefs and walls of these out-islands, discovering new dive sites and uncovering some of the most unusual underwater spectacles accessible to divers in the BVI. We will show you sites with abundant “big” fish life.
Why is there so much marine life around Jost Van Dyke?
At just 11 miles away, Jost Van Dyke is the closest island to the Corner of the World Famous North Drop. The Trench is well known to be the premier sport fishing waters for the prized Atlantic Blue Marlin as well as many other pelagic species. The fact that it contains the second deepest ocean depth in the World at 33,000 feet, means that there are plenty of bait fish and thriving marine life of all kinds, close by, all year long on our exclusive dive sites!!! Schooling bait balls of silverside minnows can be found on the coast of JVD year-round.
