Being formed completely of coral, Barbados provides spectacular dives with magnificent reefs, fascinating shipwrecks and abundant marine life. Divers can explore the barrier reefs situated within two miles of the West Coast. There are four different wrecks, 2 marine parks and a turtle park. The most famous of the wrecks, the Stavronikita, has created a fascinating penetration dive available to experienced divers. We also do twenty reef dives, from the south to the north. And in summer we also dive on the East Coast.

Due to its shallow depth it is perfect for beginners to dive on. The wreck sits in a sand patch and is surrounded by scattered coral and some large coral heads. The wreck is used as a feeding ground and has attracted a large number of Bermuda Chub which will eat out of your hand. After leaving the wreck and going on to the reef divers will notice the fish following them for a while. There is usually a large school of Horse-Eye Jacks that frequent the area but they are not as tame as the the Bermuda Chub. Sometimes you see baby turtles.
