The diving in St. Vincent and the Grenadines is some of the best in the Caribbean. These islands are often referred to as muck diving heaven, but don’t expect to find cloudy waters here. Visibility is regularly 30m or more due to the island’s heavy lava-laced sand. This is ideal for macro photography.
St. Vincent, the largest island, hosts the most dive shops. Here you will find rugged cliffs, sheer drop offs and some of the world’s best forests of black coral. “Bat Cave” is perfect for underwater photographers.
Four diveable wrecks are scattered around the islands providing habitat for a wide range of marine life, including reef sharks, sea horses, tarpon, hawksbill turtles, harlequin pipefish, bat fish, basket stars and damsel fish.
The Argyle International Airport was opened in 2017 and offers weekly direct flights from Miami, New York and Toronto.
There are other, smaller airports on the islands of Bequia, Mustique, Canouan and Union Island which host domestic flights and some flights originating in Barbados.
Visitors may also arrive by private boat or cruise ship. For those wishing to transfer from St. Vincent to one of the Grenadines, local ferries are available.
