VIDEO: Richard Branson’s New Underwater Destination in the BVI
It’s perhaps the most exciting addition to the Caribbean underwater scene in years: the BVI Art Reef, the brainchild of a group of conservationists led by BVI resident Sir Richard Branson.
It’s called the BVI Art Reef, and an underwater art installation centered around an old World War II warship called the Kodiak Queen and a massive “kraken” sea monster sculpture all off the coast of Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands.
But it’s also part of a larger, multifaceted project that includes everything from grouper repopulation to coral restoration.
The project was a joint effort that include partners like the government of the British Virgin Islands, Unite BVI, Maverick1000, Secret Samurai Productions, Beneath the Waves, Commercial Dive Services and the Association of Reef Keepers.
Better still? You can snorkel the site, too, making it accessible for even more travelers.
Caribbean Journal recently checked out the site to bring you an exclusive video look. See more in the video at the top of the page.
