Resort Description

Petit St Vincent Resort is an exclusive 5* retreat where you can adventure, indulge and rest in equal measure.

With sweeping views of the Caribbean sea and a lush jungle backdrop, Petit St Vincent Resort is a true secret island escape. Luxury one bed cottages and two-bed beach villas are purposely free from telephones, Wi-Fi and television, so you can truly switch off.

Start your day with a limbering yoga session in the open-air ocean front pavilion, or head down to the beach for a morning of sea kayaking, snorkeling or kite-surfing. Divers can make use of the crystal clear waters and the onsite 5* PADI center, which was founded by the son of legendary Jacques Cousteau.

Charter a boat to nearby Tobago Cays Marine Reserve, then finish the day off by indulging in a treatment at the Balinese spa and wellness center and refueling on freshly caught seafood and organic produce grown on the island itself. In short, Petit St Vincent Resort is the ultimate spot for dropping peacefully off the grid.

Description

Jean-Michel Cousteau Caribbean Diving Center is a 5* PADI dive center on the island of Petit St. Vincent. 

Set up by the son of legendary Jacques Cousteau and co-designed with his long time colleague Don Santee, this dive center offers state-of-the-art facilities and a knowledgeable team. It is one of two dive centers around the world that is owned and operated by Jean-Michel. The team offers guided dives as well as PADI certifications for all levels.

The extremely healthy local reefs are home to colorful fish and a nice variety of macro life - sea horses, frog fish, pipe fish, nudibranch and more. Pelagics are plentiful alongside an abundance of rays. Look out for electric, eagle, torpedo, and Caribbean sting rays! Nurse sharks, reef sharks and turtles complete the mix of marine life. 

All dive sites are off the beaten track, meaning you'll dive in peace among a small group of divers. During the surface interval, relax on the large comfy dive boat complete with seating area, shaded space and refreshments.
