The British Virgin Islands have once again been recognized in several categories among the ‘Top 100 Caribbean/Atlantic’ diving destinations in the SCUBA Diving magazine 2010 Reader’s Choice Awards, which highlight the results of an annual, impartial survey that allows SCUBA Diving readers to rate their favorite diving destinations. The British Virgin Islands were named the First Place winner for Top Beginner Diving, Second Place for Top Underwater Photography, and Third Place for Top Wreck Diving.
As described by Travel Daily News, ‘Set against a backdrop of unspoiled natural beauty, the British Virgin Islands allow visitors to explore and discover world-class diving, sailing, shopping, dining, and hospitality. After descending the depths to explore a century-old shipwreck, dive enthusiasts can enjoy a peaceful, relaxed, luxurious style unique to the BVI. BVI Wreck Week 2010, to be held June 12-18, tops the list of several exciting and high-quality dive offerings for the coming season. This will be the first year that the Dive Operators and the Tourist Board have partnered to host divers at various functions in the BVI.’
