Aqua Montserrat, a new venture created by Veta Wade, is on a mission to get local residents and visitors to spend more time discovering the beauty of the Caribbean waters.

“I love the sea and I’m happiest when I’m near the water,” says Wade, who along with her 22-month old son, spends most of her weekends on one of Montserrat’s black sand beaches. “Aqua Montserrat was created so we could introduce our clients to what I consider the most magical side of the island – its waters.”

The company, run by a team of local Montserratians and volunteers offers a range of services every weekend including snorkeling, free diving (without gear) and water sports in general.

We are an environmentally friendly business that is operated by environmentally conscious people. All of our activities are created, developed, and undertaken in such a way that it will have neither negative impact nor harm on the marine environment,” Wade explained.

In fact, Aqua Montserrat's activities are aimed at nature and marine conservation, reef protection and raising awareness on these issues in a relaxing and entertaining environment. To further this goal, Wade is encouraging parents to bring their children out on Sundays to take advantage of a free 30-minute session to learn how to snorkel.
