St Vincent and Dive St Vincent has a correct reputation for being the
critter capital of the Caribbean. Bring your macro camera and be prepared
to spend 60+ minutes photographing a near endless supply of critters.

This last trip was my seventh trip to St Vincent and the diving has
improved each year. Dive St Vincent is a no frills operation that expects
you to be adult and professional. You are allowed to dive as you see fit
providing you don't stir the bottom, touch the coral, or the critters.
Fresh fruit, chilled water or juice are not supplied so bring your own if
you feel the need. Your camera gear is handled carefully and with respect.
The dive gear is set up on your tank for you and changed between dives
along with a few stories from Bill Tewes, owner operator of Dive St
Vincent. I have not met a more informed individual than Bill when it comes
to critters.
Dive gear is included in the dive package so you can save a little cash not
having to pay over weight charges to the only airline servicing St
Vincent.
The staff at Dive St Vincent is first class and equal to Bills ability to
locate critters. You can expect to see seahorses and frog fish diving in St
Vincent along with many critters not seen others places in the Caribbean.
