Explore diving in Barbados

Known as the wreck capital of the Caribbean, it’s no wonder that Barbados is a dive destination that captures the interest of divers looking for something different.  Barbados is home to many marine creatures such as turtles, stingrays, spotted eagle rays, and sea horses. You can expect amazing visibility and warm waters.

Carlisle bay is like no other place in the world, home to six shipwrecks that can be visited all in one dive! These wrecks are in calm clear waters and perfect for newbies or experienced divers alike.

If reefs are more your thing, don’t worry Barbados has many beautiful reefs as well! There are a number of them on the south and west coast that will give you some amazing drift diving! With a mix of shallow and deep reefs there is something for everyone in Barbados.
