Well, Phil says it’s gonna be an early Spring. Here in the BVI - it’s almost always nice! Though it did get down to 68F the one time and that was vicious 🥶
.
Happy Groundhog Day everyone! Put those jackets away and get your snorkel gear out and let’s go seek adventure!

Creature Feature: Caribbean Reef Squid
.
* These type of squid have ten tentacles, eight short and two longer tentacles, tucked inside, lined with suckers to capture prey.
* Both the male and females die shortly after producing their eggs for the next generation. * They use body light signaling to communicate with each other.
* Individuals feed mostly on small fish and arthropods, such as small shrimp, during both day and night.
* In spawning, female Caribbean Reef Squid lay seven to eight eggs in a row within an egg capsule and deposit such capsules on the substrate.
* Reef squid have a very short life span of about 1 to 2 years, and the majority of their mature lives are spent competing to maximize their reproductive success (Hanlon et al. 2002). Since reef squid are semelparous; that is, they die after reproducing, they are not monogamous.
.
Now you know more about one of our favorite creatures - the Caribbean Reef Squid! We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

On today’s BVI Fun Facts segment, we learn about this rope inside the bow section of the RMS Rhone (marked by red hand). This legendary rope remains as a prop from the movie, The Deep. Filmed here in summer of 1976, the Rhone was used as a set by the production team at Columbia Pictures. During one scene, actress Jaqueline Bisset is seen being slammed against the hull of the wreck by some unseen force. Well, it turns out that the “force” was George Marler! A friend of Dive BVI and former owner of Aquatic Centers in Tortola. He had his legs braced against the hull on the inside while Ms. Bisset had the rope around her wrist. When George heard Action, he grabbed that rope and let her rip, supposedly separating her shoulder! That look of pain on her face was real!
.
He was then known as Jorge the Moray for the rest of the shoot by the film crew. If you’ve seen the movie, you’ll know why!
.
Make sure to look for it on your next dive at the RMS Rhone. If you haven’t seen it, our guides will point it out and maybe even ask you to play the role of Jacqueline (bring your own white t-shirt)!

All divers safely made it back to the boat after running into this Monster Lobster! He’s a big one! We found him on our Twilight Dive last week.

Southern stingrays are one of my favorite critters to film. They cruise, they fly, they bury themselves in the sand…sometimes they even get in front of you and poop on your divers! True Story. Hope you’ve started off the New Year right by going diving. If not, what are you waiting for?
