Comments Young Island fantastic with terrific food and staff. Rooms are clean and comfortable. No A/C, no phone, no TV but didn't miss any of it. Internet available at the front office. Understand that A/C will be added this year.
We have been diving with Dive St Vincent before. Bill (the owner) was out of town this trip and we missed him but dive masters Callie and DJ took excellent care of us as usual. Dive masters seem quiet but actually are just being polite. If you start a conversation they come out of their shell easily and are quite friendly. They are very patient and give you as much or as little help as you need.
Dive boats are small but efficient. Largest number of divers we had at any time was 8.
No large fish but an abundance of fish not seen often in other parts of the Caribbean. Sea horses, frog fish, flying gurnards, pipefish, etc. Dive masters know all the sites well and where to find the fish. Tell them what you'd like to see and they'll find one for you. Dives limited only by air supply and no dec time. 50 -60 min dives not unusual.
Water calm with very little current. Water had been choppy and weather windy on other trips during the winter months.
Contact Bill for package details. Bill prefers cash or check and but will take a credit card for an extra fee.
