Comments Dive St. Vincent booked my trip for me. I chose the no frills 2 week stay at the Skyblue Inn. (I saved between $700 and $800 over the bigger hotels) It has 7 one bedroom rooms that come with a kitchenette. Room was clean, air conditioned and had cable TV. It is located a short walk (5-10 Minutes) from the dive shop. The resturant was adequate but not as good as the Lime N pub located near the dive shop. Callie and DJ are the divemasters at Dive St. V. Both have a vast knowledge of marine life and an uncanny ability to find the smallest creatures. I found the weather ideal but the water visibility less than expected. The dive boat was never crowded. Most we ever had was 7 divers. The average was 4-6. St Vincent rates a return trip.
