The Dogs

Dog Islands, BVI
Island Hopping

These five small uninhabited islands known as “The Dogs” are situated just west of the northern most part of Virgin Gorda and east of Scrub Island. 

Xl 1200 4

The Dog Islands were named for the barking sounds that were once heard by passing mariners coming from the seal population of days past. The five islands are aptly named ‘Great Dog’, ‘George Dog’, ‘East Seal Dog’, ‘Little Seal Dog’, and ‘West Dog’.

Considered an incredible day stop when traveling to or from the North Sound, the Dogs offer several mooring fields where you’ll find excellent diving and snorkeling sites. For those that just want to relax on the beach or hike the islands collecting sea glass, there are plenty of locations suitable to dingy ashore. The one we’d recommend is on the southwest side of Kitchen Point on George Dog; the perfect spot for a picnic!

If you are able to catch a day-use mooring buoy at George Dog, the best snorkeling is around the mooring field. Great Dog is another nice area for snorkelers—on the south side of the island is a large coral reef, unlike most of the other rocky underwater terrain in the Dogs.

For our charter guests that are certified divers, you won’t want to miss the opportunity to dive the Dogs! A kaleidoscope of colors awaits you at depths surrounding this collection of islands. Discover tunnels, chimney, canyons, arches, boulders and caves worth exploring for a truly magical day of diving.
