Comments I was more than satisfied on both my trips to St Vincent; one in April 08 and one in July 08.Dove with the same dive operation--Indigo Dive on both occasions. I cannot say enough positive words about the owner of Indigo Dive, Kay Wilson. She is a lovely person and will do just about anything to assure you're having a great diving experience.I am a somewhat decent photographer and she blows me away.{ must be her camera equipment}. Seriously, any diver wishing to photograph rarely seen critters [ frog fish, batfish, flying gurnards,octopus, turtles,white nose pipfish, seahorses and every imaginable bleeny, shield head slugs, etc,etc, at shallow depths--30 to 80 ft should contact Kay at Indigo Dive. She takes pride in her operation and it spoils you. Never touched my gear after the initial set up. At the end of my stay[ both times 10 days } she brought back my gear washed and dried and smelling very clean[ womans touch].The most divers on board at one time was 6 or 7. Several times it was just Kay and one other besides myself.No rush diving, take your time and really see what the reef has to offer. Going back April 09.Both times we stayed at Young Island resort. As the old saying goes you get what you pay for. The accomodations were excellent and the food, while too spicy for me was very good.Small portions, but 5 courses that fill you up. We were on the full american plan.Don't plan on wild night life, this is not the place for it.Take the ferry and go to the mainland for excitement? Can't wait to go back!
