Re: Recent charter in BVIs

Nodders, how was the hike at VG? What is the best place to access the trail head?

Did you scuba dive or free dive the Rhone. If scuba, which outfit if any did you use and how did you coordinate?

BTW, if you use Picasa photo editor(free download at google) and use autofix on those underwater shots, you should be able to get them looking less green.

Comment: I think what you have labeled as Manna Cay is actually Marina Cay.
I think you are right about it being marina cay. Not sure where I got Manna from! I borrowed the camera from a friend and returned it yesterday so all I can tell you is that it is a little Olympus - pictures turned out a lot better than I expected.

We snorkled the Rhone. You are able to celarly see the stern, but the bow is in deeper water and a bit murky from the surface unfortunately. The hike was a little longer than planned (note my wife sticking her tongue out at me!), but no more than 40 minutes. Access is a bit confusing as there seem to be 2 access spots; one right by the road and the other about 800 metres up the road from a small parking lot to the right (yes you can drive up the road to the parking lot). I think the road access point is a shorter walk. Either way, it is well worth the view at the top!

I do need to do a proper edit on the photos! One of these days

How was Willy T's? Wild? It was when we were there in March of 2012.

We were exhausted from the trip and didn't go onboard other than to dinghy by and, yes it was wild...people jumping off, falling over etc.

We found the Bay quite noisy and party central. Nothing worse than watching 50 yr olds dancing Gangman style on the cat next to us!

Re: Recent charter in BVIs

I hear ya, we did board and it was nuts, there were couples coupling in the water after diving off the top platform and some bare-breasted drunken 40 something ended up mounting the bar and acting as a female ice cream sundae for the bartender complete with marachino cherries, you know where. Crazy!

Yup, "Time flies when you're drinking Rum", eh?
