Young Island fantastic with terrific food and staff. Rooms are clean and
comfortable. No A/C, no phone, no TV but didn't miss any of it.  Internet
available at the front office. Understand that A/C will be added this
year.
We have been diving with Dive St Vincent before.  Bill (the owner) was out
of town this trip and we missed him but dive masters Callie and DJ took
excellent care of us as usual.  Dive masters seem quiet but actually are
just being polite.  If you start a conversation they come out of their
shell easily and are quite friendly. They are very patient and give you as
much or as little help as you need.
Dive boats are small but efficient.  Largest number of divers we had at any
time was 8.
No large fish but an abundance of fish not seen often in other parts of the
Caribbean. Sea horses, frog fish, flying gurnards, pipefish, etc. Dive
masters know all the sites well and where to find the fish.   Tell them
what you'd like to see and they'll find one for you.  Dives limited only by
air supply and no dec time.  50 -60 min dives not unusual.
Water calm with very little current.  Water had been choppy and weather
windy on other trips  during the winter months.
Contact Bill for package details.  Bill prefers cash or check and but will
take a credit card for an extra fee.
