Location of George Dog Island

George Dog Island is an uninhabited island of the British Virgin Islands. It is located in a group of islets known as the Dog Islands to the northwest of Virgin Gorda.

On the north-west side of the island is a popular diving site known as "Bronco Billy", so named because of the surge which carries divers through a box canyon is thought to be similar to riding a bucking Bronco. The site achieved a degree of fame when Jacques Cousteau declared it to be his favourite site in the Territory, ahead of more famous dive sites like the wreck of the Rhone and The Indians.
