 The critters were to be found in shallow water and were easy to find.
Clearly a macro camera is required. Water for cameras was on boats and the
dive masters treated and handled camera carefully.
You can spend as much time getting pictures as you liked. The only down
side being, missing out on a critter the dive guides found while you
photographed the last critter.

  One suggestion is to co-ordinate your visit to St. Vincent to be sure the
owner/operator, Bill Tewes is not off island. Bill's fame for finding
critters is deserved. The dive staff, Callie and DJ are more than capable
at finding the unusual creature. Each of my visits to St Vincent and diving
with Dive St. Vincent have been enjoyable and each time I have been able to
add something new to my list of must see.
The last trip included the Island Seahorse and the Brown Striped Octopus

The wet and dry seasons seem to be shifting so expect to have rain and wind
when it should be dry and calm. The air carrier servicing the islands can
be a pain. Liat Airlines will weigh your checked bag, 40lb. allowed and
your carry on 15lb. and charge for any over weight.
I would suggest flying to Barbados, spend the night and take the short
morning flight to St Vincent on Liat. 
Dive St. Vincent will supply a BC and fins as part of the dive package
to save on your luggage weight.

On the muck dives expect to be scolded for stirring the bottom sediments.
If you like firing up Bill this is a good way to start.
The critters you will see diving with Dive St. Vincent is worth a little
