Closest Airport Argyle International Getting There With the opening of the new airport 3 major airlines are now offering nonstop service from Canada, NY and Miami. LIAT the local island hopper is available for those that can't get a nonstop flight. LIAT stands for "Leave Island Any Time, Lord, It's Awful Transportation, Luggage In Any Terminal and Laugh It's All True." So we recommend the charter airlines out of Barbados, SVG Air and Mystic Air. They are a little more expensive but more dependable.

Comments I first came to the island in Nov, 2003 after reading an article in Undercurrents about the "critters" found here. I wanted to dive with the "Critter King" Bill Tewes. I spent the week but Bill was away at a dive show so I came back in Jan. of 2004 and stayed 3 months. I returned in the fall of that year and stayed for 4 months. I did that for many years before deciding to just stay here and dive. I now have over 2500 dives here and I'm amazed that I'm still able to find critters that I have never seen before.
