The wind was up and the sea was rough. The tour operator was VERY clear that the ride was going to be rough and we would likely not get to snorkel the sea caves. We were offered a full refund if we didn’t want to venture out, so I can’t complain that we didn’t get to snorkel the caves. It was obviously too rough to be safe there, so we went on to an extended stop at Treasure Island/Pirates’ Bight. That stop was very pretty and relaxing, with a small, but interesting reef and a restaurant/bar. Overall, we didn’t get the full experience, but the tour operator made the most of the circumstances. Weather happens. I appreciated the up-front info from the tour operator. Less scrupulous operators would have just said nothing and gone forward knowing they would skip part of the tour (or worse let us get in the water in unsafe conditions). Even under less than ideal circumstances, I felt like we got our money’s worth.

We snorkeled here and were blown away by the sea life we saw. Schools of fish in the hundreds that swam very close to us! The sea life in the caves is excellent but be careful. It gets very dark and the tide can be quite strong. Definitely the place to snorkel if you get the chance!!!

We were told that the Norman Island Caves inspired the book, Treasure Island, by our crew on the Cruz Bay Watersports BVI snorkel cruise. This was our snorkeling stop following a walk through the Baths of Virgin Gorda. Our boat anchored at the caves along with about a half dozen others, and we dove in and swam over to the three caves to explore. The first cave goes back the furthest, about 90 feet. They are all shallow water and inhabited by fish. It is hard to see underwater in the far reaches of the 90 foot cave although when you lift your head out of the water you could see to the end of the cave pretty easily when your eyes adjusted. It was a little spooky but fun. Around the caves there were some pretty nice tropical fish to watch. I consider this a must do if you like to snorkel

The Caves are an absolute “must do”. In fact, if the waters are fairly calm, you can avoid the craziness of the Norman mooring site close to the Willie T and Bight and moor your vessel near the Caves. The snorkelling along the shoreline and in the caves is just outstanding.

Our family (ages 13 - 70+) highly recommends exploring at least one of these three water-filled caves located at the base of cliffs. It is a very different experience snorkeling into the caves and we really enjoyed it!
