There is no rinse bucket on the boat, but you go back to your room after
each dive to switch batteries, etc.  There are beautiful sponges of all
colors in the waters of Bequia.  Never seen this anywhere else in the
Carribbean.  Found Fingerprint Cyphomas here - never seen them anywhere

The guys at Bequia Dive Adventures, Ron & Laury are fantastic to dive
with!  They are professional, safety minded, respectful to the underwater
environment and its creatures, and they are really good at finding little
things like frogfish and seahorses.  When there are other people in the
boat (max 6), my buddy & I can go on our own - we're slow because I
take lots of photos.  Bequia diving is almost all drift diving, but it's a
nice slow drift.  The people are very friendly in Bequia, the Gingerbread
Hotel is nice and has one of the best restaurants on the island.  This was
our 5th trip to Bequia.  It's very difficult to get to - we've been
stranded in several places trying to get to & from.  But, it's so worth
