About Nevis

Nevis offers a wealth of relatively new and little dived sites. More than 400 ships sank here between 1493 and 1825, but only a dozen or so have been identified to date.

The western (Caribbean) side of the island is well protected and visibility off the shores is usually in the 60 - 100 ft. range. There are opportunities for divers of all levels of experience, and most dive locations are within an easy boat trip from the shore. There are many nice reef sites with large coral formations and tunnels to explore.

Climate 75 - 90F 24 - 32C Water Temp 77 - 84F 25 - 29C Visibility 80 - 100 ft 24 -30 m

Language

The official language of the island is English.

Money
The East Caribbean (EC) dollar is used on Nevis which can be obtained at any bank. Most stores and businesses accept the US dollars or travellers cheques, but change will be given in E.C.

Credit Cards
Most hotels, restaurants, and businesses accept credit cards, but it's best to check ahead before relying on just credit cards. Bank ATM machines will give EC funds through some credit cards.

Tipping
Service charge of 10% is generally included in restaurant bills, but it’s best to ask (and more is welcome, of course!). Hotels add 20% to their bills, including 10% service and 10% VAT.

Utilities
Most hotels and homes use 110 volts but 220 lines are sometimes available. Check with your hotel to be sure.

Water
Drinking water is safe to drink, but if you wish, commercially bottled water is available.
