Diving in Barbados

Quick facts

Wrecks and reefs are the winning formulae to follow when planning your dives in Barbados. 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. And if you simply wanted to overload your log with wreck after wreck then the bay of Carlisle is where you want to be. There are four wrecks in the bay and all are accessible to the beginner.

Perusing the wrecks or even the reefs of Bell Buoy, Maycocks Bay and Shark Bank is the ideal easy morning schedule for fish lovers and budding biologists. 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 on its name. The colorful corals and unusually shaped sponges draw a range of fish species and along with that are the predators looking for easy prey.

What to see

The shark-like barracuda is not only marveled at off the reefs and wrecks off Barbados, but they are also commonplace on the Caribbean menus and are plentiful in the temperate sea surrounding the island. In the crevices of the wrecks lurk lobster, eels and lionfish and peeping out of the sand like blades of grass but retreating quickly into the shelter of their holes, are the garden eels. The hawksbill, leatherback, and green turtles all use the islands beaches as nesting grounds and with a great dive master and some luck, the sightings will never be forgotten.
