Comments I started diving with Dive St Vincent in 2003. If I had known how addictive diving here was, I might not have come. I came with the express purpose of seeing "Critters" that I had never seen before. In the next few years, I was drawn back every year and stayed longer and longer diving. I'm now spending most of my year here and diving almost every day. I am still amazed that I'm finding critters that I've never seen before. The number of Nudibranchs, Flatworms, Crabs, Shrimps, Brittle Stars, Blennies and Gobies is truly amazing. I spend so much time at the shop, I'm often accused of working there.
The biggest problem about diving at St Vincent and the Grenadines is getting here. LIAT airlines ( I use that word airlines with tongue in cheek) they haven't figured out how to maintain a schedule of any kind. Although it is hard to get to, it is well worth the trip. There is diving here for almost everyone at every level.
