In exciting news from the Caribbean, Jean-Michel Cousteau—son of the legendary French explorer Jacques Cousteau—has opened a dive center in Petit St. Vincent, located 40 miles south of St. Vincent in the Grenadines island chain. Jean-Michel Cousteau Diving Caribbean bills itself as “more than just diving”; the center will help guests “learn to understand and live up to their responsibility as Ambassadors of the Environment.”
