Comments St Vincent lives up to it's reputation as the "Critter Capital of the Caribbean" and Bill Tewes of "Dive St Vincent" is one of the most knowledgeable men on fish and critter identification. Bill carries an underwater slate and will tell you on the spot, what you are looking at. His enthusiasm is infectious and before you know it, you are looking everywhere for critters smaller than your little fingernail. Because of it's location, St Vincent attracts fewer divers and this allows for smaller dive groups. Smaller groups allows for slower, longer dives. Many of the dives will last from 60-90 minutes depending on your air consumption. Before going, contact Bill and see what packages he can arrange with the local hotels. Diving at St Vincent is most rewarding.
