     If you haven't been to St. Vincent to dive with Bill Tewes and the
folks at Dive St. Vincent, don't wait any longer! Arrive ready to see the
small stuff you've seen only in the Reef Guide books - Seahorses, frogfish,
blennies, pipefish, flying gunards, gobies, jawfish, you name it, they'll
find it, even things you can't name....or see, for that matter. Bill
carries a set of magnifying glasses with him and finds things as tiny as a
pipefish smaller than my thumbnail! Then he writes it on his markerboard
for all the divers to read. His enthusiasm, wit, and knowledge,
undiminished at age 65, completes the experience. And there doesn't have to
be a full boat to go - our "crowded" day had 5 divers. The other
days had 2 or 3, and the first day they took me out by myself!
     To make the trip really magical, treat yourself and stay at Young
Island and get treated like royalty. Begin your diving day at breakfast
with the "Breadboard" - fresh baked white, whole wheat, banana,
cinnamon raisan, or coconut bread. Have any kind of omlette you can
imagine, pancakes or one of the above breads made as French Toast. Add some
homemade yogurt. Then go find seahorses and the other critters, and get
back in time for the gourmet lunch. Dinner is 5 courses with main course
including filet mignon, fresh fish, and roast duck.
     On land, check out the movie sets and landmarks used in the 3(yes, 3 -
you'll see P/C III in 2008) Pirates Of The Caribbean movies
and visit the Western Hemisphere's oldest boyanical gardens. Our guide
there knew as much about the gardens as Bill Tewes knows about the reefs!
And a visit to town isn't complete without a ride on a minibus packed full
of locals screeching around the hilly hairpin turns for $.37 US
     This was a dive trip like no other. Go see for yourself!
