St. Vincent has been called the "muck diving capital of the
Caribbean", and I'm sure it is no exageration.  Bill Tewes, owner of
"Dive St. Vincent" and his staff, have extraordinary knowledge of
the local critters habits and habitats.  The will find a great subject,
write down the name on a dive slate, and move on to find you something
else. Bill's passion for marine life is inspiring.  He got just as excited
finding beautiful and bizarre creatures as I did seeing them. You can do 2
morning dives, and with advanced notice, add an afternoon dive.  

I saw flying gunards, red banner blennies, yellow face pike blennies, neck
crabs, sea slugs, sponge crabs, flamingo tongues, seahorses, nimble spray
crabs, various shrimps, numoruos eels, squid, blue throated pike
blennies,octopi,and yellowhead jawfish.  In addition to muck diving, there
are beautiful tropical fish such as rock beauties, juvenile queen
angelfish,jack knife fish, juvenile spotted drums, french angelfish, and
many types of butterflyfish.
St. Vincent is also an excellent place to do night dives because, as Bill
would often say,"there is nothing here bigger than you".

Accommodations at Young Island Resort are private and charming.  Rooms vary
greatly and their website maps and describes each room. Meals were
outstanding with many choices available. Leave your watch at home.
