Bill Tewes does a great job finding the little critters.  They are abundant
and Bill loves to find them.  There are nice reefs if you choose to dive
them but the real excitement is the macro critters. We saw long legged
octopus, six different seahorses, six frogfish, eight different varieties
of eels.  This included a photogenic Viper eel!  There were flying
gurndards and pipefish as well.  Most of the dives were shallow making for
long fun treasure hunt dives.  If you're looking for the big stuff forget
it.

The diving was easy backrolls off the boat.  The boats aren't the most
comfortable but the rides are short so it isn't a problem.  Bill is a big
blenny fan.  He'll break out the magnifying glass and you won't believe
what he finds.  I enjoyed every dive there.

Bill and his staff are very friendly and do anything to make your dive and
stay enjoyable.  He knows the reefs real well and will find almost anything
you are looking for.

Young Island, albeit a little pricy, is great!  The rooms are large and
comfortable. There is no A/C but the breezes make it unnecessary.  The food
at the resort was outstanding and we enjoyed every meal.  There is a small
ferry that will run you back and forth to the main island 24 hours per day.
 

St. Vincent is a little tough to get to but new service by Caribbean Sun
out of San Juan was scheduled to begin in May.  This should make it a lot
easier to get to.

I really like St. Vincent and would recommend it the critter hunters.
