Would not be rating Dive St. Vincent at all if Peter Hughes had not pulled
their boat out of Grenada AFTER we had already booked it!  The good:  Dive
St. Vincent always ran on time, divemasters were anxious to show divers
unusual critters, knowledgeable, rental gear looked good, particularly if
you want to avoid luggage weight issues with LIAT.  

Know before you go:  they don't leave a "live" boat, so if you
are the first one up there's no assistance for you.  Bill goes on nearly
every dive.  He has what I call "Social Tourettes", so be
prepared.  He will attempt to engage you in political debate, give
non-answers to your questions ("How deep is it?"  "It goes
all the way to the bottom.")and make inappropriate comments ("Do
your friends call you bubble butt?")  He is reputed to have the best
dive operation on St. Vincent, so don't let the conversations during the
dive intervals make your choices for you, unless you know you won't be able
to "let it go."
