Leave Road Harbor and after an exhilarating 20 minute ride we arrive at the Caves on Norman Island’s Treasure point. Here your guide will give a brief description of the area and it’s part in the history of the BVI. Next we cruise to Peter Island’s Little Harbor to see the sight of the coaling station set up in the mid to late 1800’s as yellow fever had St. Thomas under quarantine. In Great Harbor we will pass over the sight of the R.M.S. Rhone’s anchor and broken chain. More on this story will be told later in the Tour.
Further East along the North Shore of Peter Island we will enter Deadman’s Bay and discover the story behind Deadman’s Chest and Deadman’s Bay.
A little further to the East across Salt Island Passage and Blonde Rock where we will pull into Lee Bay on Salt Island to finish our story of the R.M.S.Rhone. Around the Point we will enter Salt Island Bay and give a description of the important role this Island played in the days before Refrigeration.
Our final Island on this tour is Cooper Island where we learn what a Cooper is and how this name ties in all the various trades and commodities taking place back in days before containers and container ships!
