Sailing & Charters

St. Vincent & the Grenadines is a true diver's paradise, and diving in Bequia is rated by many as amongst the very best in the Caribbean.

There are over 30 excellent and easily accessible sites in the sparklingly clear waters around the island or within easy reach, offering drift dives with intriguing caverns and holes, walls and overhangs, all teeming with wonderful coral formations and marine life. For the more experienced diver, exciting wreck and night dives are also available.

Fishing is an increasingly popular sport on Bequia, with marlin, kingfish, tuna, and barracuda amongst the most readily available - often just with a line and lure. Part of the fun of going on a day charter is the prospect of catching your own dinner! Spearfishing is NOT permitted. An excellent range of fishing equipment and accessories, including snorkelling gear are available from the following specialists:
