Comments We keep returning to St. Vincent...this is our 8th trip since 2008! The big news is that it is now easier to get to. If you live in the Northeast, Air Canada Rouge flies nonstop from Toronto to the new Argyle airport on St. Vincent on Thursdays. We were able to take Air Canada from Newark to Toronto at 6am and then depart Toronto @ 10am and fly straight to St. Vincent. Our bags were checked all the way through and there is a speedy passport scan in the Toronto airport as you connect leaving plenty of time for breakfast. American Airlines is due to start a nonstop from Miami on Saturdays beginning Dec. 22, 2018 so overall it is getting easier!
Today we had a rare sighting of a large spotted eagle ray on our first dive, but generally divers come to St. Vincent for the diversity of the “critters”. It is a photographer’s paradise...Endless great vis and very small groups of divers. Today we also saw 2 bullseye lobsters and frogfish abound on almost every dive. Three seahorses on one dive the other day and usually squid squads in the shallows. If eels are your thing, chain, goldentail, purple mouth join the usual spotted morays. The Dive St. Vincent team of Callie and Don have amazing “eyes” for finding the small unusual stuff and endless patience and care for photographers. Excellent, relaxed diving in uncrowded conditions...why haven’t you tried St. Vincent yet?
