Comments We have made 3 annual trips to this place and find the diving to be excellent. Ron & Laury at Dive Adventures are great to dive with and find all kinds of cool stuff to photograph. They also don't try to rush us. The diving is in small groups so we go at our own slow speed. The reefs are sooooo beautiful you don't want to miss anything-seahorses, highhats, and other things you don't see everywhere.

It can be difficult to get in and out of Bequia, but we find the best bet is to go through St. Vincent and then ferry over from there. The ferry is within walking distance of the Gingerbread Hotel but they will gladly pick you up. The dive shop is about 100 yards from the hotel. Not much going on in Bequia, but the people are very friendly and the diving is wonderful!
