Kay Wilson of Indigo Dive provided the best personal service we have ever
experienced.  Kay could not meet us a the ferry from Bequia so she called
Bequia Dive Adventures and left a message that Desmond would be waiting for
us at the dock and that she would contact us that afternoon upon our
arrival. When we got to the dock Desmond met us aboard the ferry, carried
our bags and drove us to the Beachcomber in the cleanest car I have ever
ridden in.  Upon arrival at the Beachcomber Kay called to make sure we had
everything we needed like she said she would.  Kay spent several of her
evenings visiting with us, introducing us to the locals, and taking us out
to eat at local restaurants.  Any concern or issue we had was addressed
promptly and to our satisfaction by Kay.  Kay had Desmond meet us on our
day of departure and take us to the airport.

We brought our own equipment but would advise others to only bring your
regulatory and mask as Kay provides equipment as part of the dive package. 
Her equipment is new and well maintained and this will save you baggage
fees.  We paid LIAT $120 for two additional bags from Barbados to St.
Vincent for example.  Kay also provides rechargable batteries so check with
her before loading up with batteries.

Kay provided us with a good mix of muck, wreck, and reef diving so we could
get a good feel of diving in St. Vincent.  There are very few big fish but
a lot of small critters.  Each dive was exciting and we spent over 60
minutes per dive at shallow depth.  We found frogfish, nudibranchs,
batfish, seahorses, several varieties of crabs, banded jawfish, flying
gurnards, many varieties of cleaner shrimp and spoon snake eels to name a
few.  I have posted some photographs on my web site if you want to see the variety of critters we

If you are doing two dives per day you will begin at 9:30am with Kay
picking you up by boat from your hotel and returning around 1:00 to 2:00pm
so bring something to eat if you want to.  Kay provides water and juice on
the boat along with a snack after the first dive.

If you stay at the Beachcomber I would suggest getting a kitchenette as the
food is quite expensive in all the restaurants around St. Vincent.  The
rooms were clean and we enjoyed the staff and our stay.

Bring more cash than you normally do on vacations because the food and LIAT
are very expensive.

Overall this was an excellent dive trip.  We had chosen St. Vincent because
it would be different from our normal pace of Caribbean diving and we were
not disappointed.  Kay Wilson made sure that our diving was great so we
would return some day.  And we will!
