Diving in the Grenadines

Each island in this tropical archipelago promises divers something different: St Vincent’s steep black coral curtained walls, Bequia’s monster schools of fish, Mustique’s currents, Canouan’s shapely hard corals and the nurse sharks of the Tobago Cays. Diving in the Grenadines is simply breathtaking with numerous options.

The diving is so diverse and there is no reason not to see it all—see the book for details of a dive package that lets you do just that, as well as information about how to move between the islands.

Wallilabou Dive Experience is owned and managed by Kenard Cruikshank, a PADI dive instructor.

We always thought that Wallilabou would be a great location for a dive store as there is quick access to the pristine diving off the west coast. Check out Kenard’s website for more information.

The location is marked as ‘NEW’ on the enlarged version of the top map of St Vincent above. http://members.nbci.com/walldivexp Dive Bequia Dive Bequia has hired two new divemasters to compliment the regular instructors.
