The Dogs

Northeast of Tortola are The Dogs, small uninhabited islands. West Dog is a national park. On Great Dog you can see frigate birds nesting. The islands are often used as a stopping off point when sailing from North Sound to Jost Van Dyke, and are popular with divers coming from North Sound.


The dive sites are not spectacular but there are some interesting rock formations, with canyons and bridges. The best anchorages are on George Dog to the west of Kitchen Point and on the south side of Great Dog.
