Comments This last trip was my seventh trip to St Vincent and the diving has improved each year. Dive St Vincent is a no frills operation that expects you to be adult and professional. You are allowed to dive as you see fit providing you don't stir the bottom, touch the coral, or the critters.
Fresh fruit, chilled water or juice are not supplied so bring your own if you feel the need. Your camera gear is handled carefully and with respect. The dive gear is set up on your tank for you and changed between dives along with a few stories from Bill Tewes, owner operator of Dive St Vincent. I have not met a more informed individual than Bill when it comes to critters.
Dive gear is included in the dive package so you can save a little cash not having to pay over weight charges to the only airline servicing St Vincent.
The staff at Dive St Vincent is first class and equal to Bills ability to locate critters. You can expect to see seahorses and frog fish diving in St Vincent along with many critters not seen others places in the Caribbean.
