Diving in Barbados

Explore diving in Barbados

With a portfolio of about 200 wrecks, it’s no wonder that Barbados is a dive destination that captures the interest of divers looking for something different.

The Pamir, Friars Crag and the Stavronikita are the wrecks that should be at the top of your priority list, and some like the Pamir are at depths perfect for the newbie diver. The well-preserved coral environments attract sea turtles, parrotfish, rays and eels of many varieties, and time under the water is only depth dependent as the tepid sea rarely requires divers to wear wetsuits.

For prowling hunters of the sea, the site of Barracuda Junction delivers every time. The colorful corals and unusually-shaped sponges draw a range of fish species along with the predators looking for easy prey.
