DIVE AND DISCOVER BRITISH VIRGIN ISLAND’S UNDERSEA WONDERSWITH LONG BAY BEACH RESORT & VILLAS VALUE ADDED PACKAGE — Five Night All-Inclusive Dive Tortola Package Priced From $899 Per Person — TORTOLA, BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS (MARCH 12, 2008) –Tortola’s volcanic origins have created an unusual underwater wonderland of huge boulders, sponge covered canyons and soft-coral gardens in this pristine corner of the Caribbean. Its sheltered waters have virtually no currents, making Tortola ideal for underwater photography and for mastering scuba skills. Here, seahorses, Flamingo Tongue Snails and slender filefish seek refuge amid colorful soft coral branches as barracuda, rays and sea turtles swim by. Partnering with Dive Tortola to add value for its guests, Long Bay Beach Resort and Villas is offering a five-night, all-inclusive Dive Tortola package priced from $899 per person, based on double occupancy from April 1 to December 20, 2008, and reflects a $500+ savings if it was not booked as a package. The package includes five-nights accommodations in a Hillside Oceanview room, dining, top-shelf liquor, tax and service charges at the resort, and a two-tank dive—including equipment and instruction–with Dive Tortola. Non-divers can opt for a Discover Scuba Diving course, or a day sail. Additional dives are available for a supplemental fee. “Experienced or novice divers can discover Tortola’s amazing underwater attractions while staying at Long Bay Beach Resort & Villas, the largest full service resort on the island. The most famous scuba opportunity is the coral-encrusted Wreck of the Rhone, home to lobsters, octopus, sea turtles, Sergeant Majors and black coral. Our guests can enjoy a variety of PADI-certification options and dive experiences with Dive Tortola. After their undersea adventures, they will enjoy the caring service and exclusive amenities of our resort,” said Steven E. Heydt, Elite Island Resorts president.
