One of the more intriguing dives in the British Virgin Islands, Brown Pants features a large number of ledges, caverns, nooks and crannies.
The site was named when discovered on an exploratory dive by Ducan Muirhead, off Cuan Law, who was chased back to the boat by a pack of bull sharks, and promptly christened the site appropriately.
The site is known for good marine life, in particular lobsters, turtles and eels. Despite the name of the site, shark sitings are not frequent.
