If I had known that Timothy Beach Resort was as isolated as it was from
town with no public transportation available, and that there were no
generators in the guest rooms and that power outages were common and long
lasting;  and if I had realized that the dive sites that were
"best" were not visited "off season" because they were
too costly to go to, maybe I would have returned to the Utila Lodge or used
SeaScuba in Cozumel for my dose of splendid diving. Kennth Dive shop is the
most reputable operation on St Kitts, respected by all the locals and asked
for by the tourists - but because it was off season the dive master would
or could not go beyond Frigate Bay. Each set of dives included one wreck;
small critters abound and the dive master (Vijay) was a great at finding
the tiniest and most outrageous creatures. St. Kitts is a bustling island
but many essentials for divers are unavailable (I could not find a 3.6 volt
battery for my computer in any store in the capital)- bring all your
"stuff" making no assumptions about being able to purchase items
in an "emergency". I suspect that I will not return to St Kitts
but will miss the opportunity to dive with Vijay at more exciting sites at
some future time. The best meal I had on the island was at the
"X's" restaurant, a shack right across the parking lot in front
of the Timothy Beach Resort. If you go, don't miss out on the made to order
meals and the congenial staff.
