Rinse tank on boat.  Kay is an excellent, knowledgeable, experienced
photographer.  She pointed out many things I had never seen before and made
it one of the most interesting dive trips I've been on.  She also gave me
many new tips for underwater photography and it was great diving with her
and her staff.  They didn't rush us and it's amazing how much there is to
see when you take your time.

We had a wonderful week in St. Vincent.  Kay Wilson, from Indigo Dive,
greeted us at the airport and took us to the Beachcomber Hotel where we
stayed, and she even helped us carry our luggage to the 3rd floor.

We were completely spoiled our week diving with Indigo Dive.  Each morning
we were picked up on the beach in front of Beachcomber Hotel.  Kay and her
staff: Dale, Andrew, and Otteran were accommodating, helpful, personable,
and professional.  After our first dive we didn't lift a finger to clean
our gear.  They took our gear and washed everything: wetsuits, snorkel,
mask, fins, BCD's.  It was nice not having to clean gear on vacation. ;)
The next morning we'd find our gear nicely cleaned and organized on the
boat and tanks set-up and ready to go.  I told them once where I liked my
BCD placed on the tank and they remembered each time they changed my tank. 
I liked their attention to detail.  Kay is meticulous about her boat and
equipment and takes good care of it and her customers.  On our surface
intervals they supplied water, juice, and snacks.

St. Vincent has many things to offer from breathtaking topography,
interesting critters, schools of hundreds of fish, caves, walls, wrecks,
and drift diving.  There is something for everyone.  Our one dive at
"Japanese Garden" started out calm and then the current picked up
and it turned into a drift dive.  Kay's staff on the boat kept an eye on
our bubbles and knew when our course changed, that it had turned into a
drift dive and they picked us up when we surfaced.
The dive briefings were detailed and Kay explained the Jawfish behavior and
how to approach them.  As we waited on the bottom of the sand following
Kays example and waiting a few feet away, we saw jawfish with mouthfuls of
eggs dance just above their holes.  It was mesmerizing to watch their
elegant movements.

We also saw several blennies, snake eels, pipefish, frogfish, seahorses,
morays, spotted drums, soapfish, and the biggest spiny lobster I've ever

Our stay at the Beachcomber Hotel was very nice, clean, and accommodating
and a daily continental breakfast was included with the package.  The
dinner menu was limited and the food was very good.  We had dinner at the
Paradise Hotel a few nights and the food was excellent there.  We also had
a nice dinner at Grand View Grill with Kay and Malcolm.

Kay let us tag along on her photo shoot at the Botanical Gardens.  Sinclair
gave us an interesting and informative tour of the beautiful gardens.   He
pointed out trees that were hundreds of years old and demonstrated the uses
of flowers, spices, and leaves.  It was well worth the visit.

St. Vincent is still unspoiled and its beauty and charm are unsurpassed. 
We will be back to dive again with Indigo Dive.  It was one our my best
dive trips!
