JVD Scuba and BVI Eco-Tours. Check out the undersea world around the island with dive master Colin Aldridge.

A one-tank dive costs $110, a two-tank dive $135, and a four-hour beginner course is $140 plus the cost of equipment. Colin also offers day-trips to Sandy Cay and Sandy Spit, Norman Island, Virgin Gorda (The Baths), and custom outings. You can also rent snorkel equipment, dive gear, standup paddleboards, dinghies, and outboard boats here. Great Harbour, Jost Van Dyke, VG1160. 284/495–0271; Closed Sat..

Paradise Jeep Rentals. Paradise Jeep Rentals offers the ideal vehicles to tackle Jost Van Dyke's steep, winding roads.

This outfit rents two-door Suzukis for $70 per day and four-door Grand Vitaras and Sportages for $80. Discounts are available for rentals of six or more days. It's next to the Fire Station in Great Harbour. Reservations are a must. Great Harbour, Jost Van Dyke, VG1160. 284/495–9477.
