Bequia Dive Adventures-  scuba diving and accommodations in the Grenadines
GETTING HERE

Getting to Bequia has always been a part of its charm. No large cruise ships, jet airplanes, and certainly no highways connect Bequia with the rest of the world.  With a size of approximately 7 square miles and around 5,000 inhabitants, it's the ideal island getaway.

Transportation options are on small scheduled or charter aircraft, local ferries, and private or chartered yachts. Bequia, being just a bit off the beaten path, gives the traveler a chance to experience the "Original Caribbean", with its lack of crowds, casinos or high rises, and its friendly people and unspoiled natural beauty. It's likely you'll make many new friends, both local and from far off places, that share something in common; a love of nature and a love for Bequia.
