Beyond the Reef Mission

Beyond The Reef works to create an abundant and diverse marine ecosystem within the caribbean that simultaneously encourages local community education and pride in the surrounding underwater habitat.

Beyond the Reef was founded in 2018 after Hurricanes Irma and Maria and began by recycling derelict vessels such as the Willy T and airplanes into fun interactive dive sites that give back to the community and our reefs. In addition to now being thriving reef systems, they ask that every diver on the sites donate a $5 admission fee which goes directly towards teaching local BVI children how to swim. This past year they have been focused on mitigating Stony Coral Tissue Loss Disease which has recently begun infecting BVI reefs, initiating a shark tagging/research and education program, and doing large-scale clean ups of marine debris such as nets, ropes and traps from our local beaches and waters.
