Sporting Life In
St. Vincent And The Grenadines

St. Vincent
Sailing
These island waters provide some of the best sailing in the Caribbean. Sunfish and sailfish are available at most island hotels. For yacht sailing contact Lagoon Maina at Calliaqua (Ph: 458-4308). They are the island's largest operation.
Snorkeling & Scuba Diving
Diving around St. Vincent is excellent, but plan to take an excursion dive to the neighboring Grenadines. For full equipment rentals, course certification, resort dives, night dives and wreck diving to the island of Mayreau, contact: Dive St. Vincent (Ph: 457-4714). Snorkeling around Young Island is exciting.
Windsurfing
Windsurfing is a big favorite on the island and the Young Island Resort (Ph: 458-4826) offers rentals and professional instruction.
Tennis
The Kingstown Tennis Club has 2 lighted courts and allows temporary membership to visitors and charges a low hourly rate. Good courts are also available at Emerald Valley Hotel, 2 courts (Ph: 456-7104). We also liked Grand View Beach Hotel, 1 court (Ph: 458-4811).
The Grenadines
Sailing
The Young Island Resort (Ph: 458-4826) to discover the excursions most convenient to your location. On Bequia call, Frangipani Yacht Services (Ph: 458-3255) and on Union Island check with the Anchorage Yacht Club (Ph: 458-8221) they usually know whose who and what's what in the Grenadines.
Snorkeling & Scuba Diving
The best diving spots are around Mayreau, Petit Canouan, Petit Nevis, Young Island, Palm Island, and Pigeon Island. For full equipment rentals, dive instructions and excursions contact: Dive Bequia (Ph: 458-3504); Mustique Watersports (Ph: 456-3522) or check with your hotel's water center. Snorkeling is spectacular anywhere but some say the Tobago Cays is the world's finest. Equipment rental is available near the beaches and at the hotels.
Tennis
Offered everywhere - the two resort hotels that don't have courts are Anchorage Yacht Club and Bequia Beach Club.
