RMS Rhone, Salt Island

Dive into the depths and visit RMS Rhone, a wrecked Royal Mail vessel that sunk in a hurricane in 1867. Now a haunting and beautiful home to marine life, the wreck is an excellent place to observe the natural wonders of the sea. If you snorkel, you can get a reasonable view from the surface, but try a full dive with a team to get up close and personal with it, and to also learn the background of the dramatic events that led to this unusual marine life habitat.
