This World Footprints show will journey to the Grenadines and unlock the mysteries of the sea in a way few seldom see or experience.
Our first stop takes us to Bequia (pronounced Beck-way), the largest of the Grenadines. Fresh from a dive at Devils Table with her dive buddy Cathy Sachs of Dive Bequia, Tonya and Cathy will recount their dive and why Bequia offers an unusual diving experience. Cathy will also share how this island has changed her life.
Then we’ll visit Bequia’s Park Bay, home to the Old Hegg Turtle Sanctuary, where a native retired skin-diving fisherman affectionately known as “Brother King”, has spent more than a decade of his life to helping to conserve the endangered hawksbill turtle.
Many of the hatchlings are released into a protective area just south of Bequia called Tobago Cays—our next stop. Lesroy Noel is the Park Ranger for the Tobago Cays Marine Park which lies in the southern Grenadines.
Finally, we’ll travel a short distance by boat to the private Palm Island where we’ll chat with the island’s resident artist and (retired) M.D. Dr. Patrick Chevailler. Patrick is one of the world’s premiere undersea artists and his character is as charming and colorful as his artwork.
It's good to talk.
