Comments This past April was the third time my daughter and I dove with Kay Wilson of Indigo Dive. The diving just never gets boring-----almost every dive we saw somthing new or never seen before. Let me be clear, you are not going to see large fish or palagics, but if you enjoy seeing small photographical critters then Indigo Dive is your best choice. We saw every conceivable type of blenny,some not in books, jawfish with mouthfuls of eggs, nudies, large snake eels, pipefish, my favorite--frogfish, seahares, octopus, the list can go on and on. We hunted for Brotulas recently seen but had no luck. Nextime, which will be April 2010, is already booked with Kay. Indigo Dive and its owner Kay Wilson, is beyond verbal discription.
As far as land accomodations-----all three times we stayed at Young Island and again we are booked there for two weeks in April 2010. The cottages are excellent with beautiful views, we stayed in 22 and 10. The food is very good, can't give it an excellent because of too much spice for my stomach, but no one else complained. The service is impeccable as is the waitstaff. Again, not to be repeticious,you get what you pay for. 'Nuff Said!
