Comments Getting to St. Vincent can be a pain only one real airline services the island and they could care less if your luggage or camera equipment makes the flight.
Dive St Vincent has an excellent staff and the supplied dive gear is first rate, gear is part of the package. The owner, operator, Bill Tewes, the staff, DJ and Callie have the ability to find, identify, and point out critter better than anyone or any place I have found in the Caribbean.
This was my sixth trip to St. Vincent and the sixth time I have dove with Dive St. Vincent each time the experience has been better than before. I have video and over two thousand photos from these trips and each time I have added another new critter to my list of critters.
