The Kodiak Queen, a WW2 fuelling vessel that survived the 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, has been transformed into the “BVI Art Reef”, an artificial reef and dive site in the British Virgin Islands – thanks to Sir Richard Branson.

After he saved it from being scrapped, Branson had the vessel cleaned and it has just been sunk off Virgin Gorda as part of a permanent “eco-friendly underwater art installation”, complete with 25m mesh sea monster created to assist with coral restoration and marine-life colonisation.

One way to dive the site is on an Ultimate Dive BVI package with yacht-charter company The Moorings.

You can charter the Poseidon’s Pearl, a crewed catamaran complete with private captain (and PADI instructor), chef and host, to dive a variety of BVI sites, and prices start from £1783pp for a five-night charter in late June, based on ten sharing.

This includes the charter, all meals, snacks and beverages, housekeeping, wi-fi and six dives with equipment. Flights cost extra and can be added by The Moorings – prices start from £948pp with BA. A seven-night charter in December costs from £1979pp. Find out more here
