Rhone National Park, Salt Cay, BVI

The Royal Mail Steam Ship, Rhone, sank off the coast of Salt Cay in the British Virgin Islands back in October 1867 during a hurricane. 123 people lost their lives.

That wreck is now a popular dive site. The area around the wreck is dedicated as a national park, Rhone National Park.
