Shore Facilities  
No facilities at the shop.  You prep your equipment and clean it at your
hotel.  Only a rinse tank on the boat.  Don't let the lack of facilities
prevent you from seeing what the St Vincent waters have to offer.

Getting to the island is the main problem.  LIAT airlines presently is the
only airlines that services the islands.  They have a hard time maintaining
a schedule and an even harder time getting your bags to arrive with you. 
If you are lucky, you can make the trip in one day but usually it requires
2 days to arrive but only one day to get home.  Puerto Rico or Barbados are
the 2 main islands to use to get in and out of St Vincent.  There are 2
dive shops on the island.  Indigo and Dive St Vincent.  I have been diving
with Dive St Vincent for about 9 years now and have over 500 dives with
him.  Bill Tewes is famous for his knowledge of marine life.  He has been
diving there for over 25 years.  The reefs are healthy and so far, the
Lionfish are non-existent.  Bill is rough around the edges but his passion
is critters and every dive is a learning experience.  When you dive with
Bill, there is no set bottom time so the length of your dive depends on
your air consumption.  With this philosophy, a 2 tank dive is usually all
you can do in a day.  Any more than that, and you have to make special
arrangements.  Night dives are also available.  I highly recommend new
divers get their fins wet learning about critter diving.  Once you learn
that there is much more to diving than just big fish and reefs, you can go
to almost any dive site and find something interesting to look at.  To
clarify the info above, the water temp ranges from a low of around 78 to a
high of 85 but I'm there from July till Apr and that is the range it can be
depending on the month you are there.  I don't use a wet suit but a 3-5 mil
is what most divers bring.  If you have any questions, feel free to contact
