Your small dive boat will likely be the only one around the island.
Like a necklace of gemstones, St. Vincent and the Grenadines' 32 islands stretch along the southern end of the Caribbean's Windward Islands for 45 miles. From St. Vincent's volcanic cliffs dripping with emerald green vegetation fringed by black sand to Petit St. Vincent's perfect white sand and aquamarine waters, divers find unspoiled reefs and an incredible diversity of marine life.
The major areas for diving are scattered throughout the island chain. Bequia, Canouan, Mustique, St. Vincent, and the area around Mayreau, Tobago Cays, Palm and Union Islands are serviced by local dive operators.
The diving in St. Vincent is the best in the Caribbean if you love underwater macro photography, seahorses, frogfish and exotic creatures. You won't find the quality or quantity of unique creatures in Dominica, Grenada, Saba, Bonaire, Cozumel, Grand Cayman, Little Cayman, Barbados or any other Caribbean Island. Here the diving compares only with the Indo-Pacific countries of Indonesia, Philippines and PNG. Read Roger Steene 's comments on diving St Vincent located on the St. Vincent pages of this site.
Diving varies from thrilling drift dives to dramatic wall dives, breath-taking coral gardens and reefs, to some of the most amazing "muck" diving in the world.
