Section II

It’s not by chance that the producers of the Pirates of the Caribbean series of Hollywood movies chose St Vincent and Dominica as locations. They both offer the rustic charm and unspoiled richness of environment that can, with little effort, take you back hundreds of years. Add in a third island, St Lucia, which lies between the two, and you have destinations that provide three very different experiences for the tourist and diver. St Lucia is a maturing package tourist destination, with well established dive schools offering multi-lingual instruction and guidance for both beginner and experienced divers; Dominica is a nature tourist’s idyllic location offering more adventurous dives and above water scenery that is equally as spectacular as that below water; St Vincent, on the other hand, has become known as the “muck diving critter capital of the Caribbean”—a photographer’s dream offering a diversity of species that rivals Lembeh Straights in Indonesia, but with one difference: these are Caribbean species, and many cannot be found in the Indo Pacific.

Pay & Play: The ocean has been regarded as a global commons whose resources are inexhaustible and therefore free for the taking. The need to manage and protect the few valuable resources left in the ocean is requiring an ever increasing financial participation from governments, businesses and the general public.
