The Saba Rock Museum in Saba Rock, Virgin Gorda, British Virgin Islands | Museum

Welcome to The Saba Rock Museum

Bert Kilbride has been a professional SCUBA diver for over forty years. He introduced the now-universally-adopted resort course program. He became a wreck diving expert and appeared in many books and films. He has entertained many dignitaries of the world and received the title of "Receiver of Wrecks" from Her Majestie's Government in 1967.

Also in 1967, he built Drake's Anchorage on Mosquito Island which he had purchased earlier. It was in those early days that Bert became keenly interested in wreck diving. The island of Anegada, a graveyard of ships, was right at his doorstep. He was involved in the finding of 91 different shipwrecks among the dangerous reefs of that area. Most of these were discovered while he was being towed slowly behind a boat using mask, fins and snorkel!

Bert, now 87 years of age, is planning yet another wreck excavation: that of the 55-gun galleon San Ignacio. The vessel was wrecked on the Anegada Reefs in 1742. She had a cargo of silver and gold headed for remuneration for the men of the garrisons of Cartagena. This exploration awaits Government approval.
