Comments My husband was participating in a conference and I took my dive gear just "in case". Am I glad I did. Beautiful diving - tons of small creatures, no broken or dead coral, clear water, no other dive boats, great photo ops. This place restored our hope for some decent diving that's not half a world away. Kay at Indigo was great. She took me diving when I was the only diver one day and fit my husband and I onto an all day dive-snorkel trip that was preplanned before our arrival. Dale, divemaster-in-training, had an amazing ability to spot the tiniest creatures and was a pleasure to dive with. Based on other Undercurrent reviews, I first contacted Dive St. Vincent. I have to say that I was very put off by the owners reply to my inquiry if I could store my gear at his shop while I was diving with them. He informed me that I could if I had a specific type of mesh bag but if I didn't, I would have to buy one from him for $15.00 USD. My USDivers mesh bag didn't meet his requirement so I looked elsewhere for a dive operator. After 23+ years of diving, that kind of rigidity put up red flags for us. St. Vincent is a beautiful island with very friendly people. Visit it before the 600 room hotel is built as well as the new airport which will allow the huge planes to land. Eight dives were enough to convince us that we need to return and see what else there is to underwater St. Vincent.
