Snorkeling at Treasure Island
This delightful snorkel trip includes a scenic boat journey between the British Virgin Islands to the famed Caves at Norman Island with a reputed history of piracy and immortalized in Robert Louis Stevenson's famous book: "Treasure Island." Norman Island has a rich documented history of acting as a hiding spot for pirate booty. Documented history for the island dates back to the early 18th century when a Spanish treasure galleon called Nuestra Senora de Guadelope buried 55 chests of silver coins after the crew mutinied aboard the ship. Although much of the treasure has been discovered by Tortolan residents and later by Leiutenant-Genearal of the Leeward Islands, Gilbert Fleming, more pirate treasure is rumored to exist today on Norman Island. The adventure begins with boarding a twin-engine Snorkel Launch for a scenic 35-minute ride across the scenic Sir Francis Drake Channel to two of the B.V.I.'s prime snorkel sites. Your experienced Snorkel Instructor will take you snorkeling at the uninhabited and legendary Caves at Treasure Point (Norman Island) where pirate treasure is said to have been hidden! A second snorkel stop is planned at the pristine surroundings at The Indians before returning back to your SeaDream Yacht.
