Comments Carriacou offers lots of lobsters, octopuses, some rays, and pretty decent reefs. We saw some dead and bleached coral, but overall, the reefs looked much better than other parts of Caribbean. The fish population was healthy. We saw several nurse sharks, but no other reef sharks . Deefer Divers was a very good and efficient dive operation. The boat was spacious and nice. The island is beautiful, with no chain hotels, restaurants or coffee shops. We enjoyed the Kayak Cafe for breakfast and lunch. Other places we tried were ok, but the service is slow, so be patient. Also, the 20 min flight from St.George to Hillsborough was very pretty with lots of spectacular scenery.
