Comments The guys at Bequia Dive Adventures, Ron & Laury are fantastic to dive with! They are professional, safety minded, respectful to the underwater environment and its creatures, and they are really good at finding little things like frogfish and seahorses. When there are other people in the boat (max 6), my buddy & I can go on our own - we're slow because I take lots of photos. Bequia diving is almost all drift diving, but it's a nice slow drift. The people are very friendly in Bequia, the Gingerbread Hotel is nice and has one of the best restaurants on the island. This was our 5th trip to Bequia. It's very difficult to get to - we've been stranded in several places trying to get to & from. But, it's so worth it!

UW Photo Comments There is no rinse bucket on the boat, but you go back to your room after each dive to switch batteries, etc. There are beautiful sponges of all colors in the waters of Bequia. Never seen this anywhere else in the Carribbean. Found Fingerprint Cyphomas here - never seen them anywhere else!
