Dive Review of Bill Tewes' Dive St. Vincent in
St. Vincent and the Grenadines

Bill Tewes' Dive St. Vincent: "Macrophotography heaven", Jan, 2015,

by Mary K Wicksten, TX, US (Sr. Reviewer Sr. Reviewer 11 reports with 2 Helpful votes). Report 8106 has 1 Helpful vote.

Reporter and Travel

Dive Experience Over 1000 dives
Where else diving California, western Mexico, Costa Rica, Hawaii, Galapagos, New Guinea, Fiji, S. Australia, Gulf of Mexico, Bahamas, Bonaire, Honduras, Belize, Grand Cayman, Florida Keys and springs
Closest Airport St. Vincent Getting There Take connecting flight from Barbados or other island. I took LIAT--20 minutes late outbound but on time inbound. Trouble with loading "space available" and overweight cargo of other passengers caused delay.

Dive Conditions

Weather sunny, windy Seas calm, no currents
Water Temp 81 to 83 Fahrenheit Wetsuit Thickness 3
Water Visibility 20 to 40 Feet

Dive Policy

Dive own profile yes
Enforced diving restrictions Stay reasonably close to dive guide; if lost, go to surface. We also did a 3-minute safety stop at 15 feet on the way up, with a 500 psi end point but this was by mutual agreement. No coercion at all.
Liveaboard? no Nitrox Available? no
