Comments Of all the dive centers we contacted in the Grenadines, Dive Adventure was by far the most accomodating. They put a very reasonable package of gear and tanks for us to use while we were visiting the island with a sailboat. The service was friendly, rapid and we got value for the dollar, without a doubt.

Without exception, all of the other dive operations in Bequia, Union, Carriacou (part of Grenada) and Canouan were overly expensive, charging up to 120 USD for a single tank dive. Shops servicing the Tobago Cays Reserve are using the fact that you can only dive the Cays with a local dive center by charging what we feel are outrageous prices. Too bad. The Grenadines have very healthy reefs, fish life is abundant, and the Tobago Cays are replete with turtles (we saw 5 turtles in one group).
