Location: Great Harbour Peter, BVI
After breakfast we motored away from Gorda Sound into the Francis Drake channel intending to dive the wreck of the Rhone, a Royal Mail ship from the 1860’s that wrecked during a late season hurricane and was a grave to its passengers. Unfortunately, wind and current being so strong we had to cancel the dive and continue on to Great Harbour Peter. After lunch we dove the anchor of the Rhone, which the boat had slipped before it headed out intending to ride out the storm. After enjoying our last fiesta we headed out with our dive gear on Near Enough to dive the wreck of the Fearless at night. It was dark, swelly and basically intense. We explored the wreck, saw some cool big fish, some of us even saw two sharks. Once back on the mooring we were wet and tired, so after small hot chocolate party we went to bed.
