Diving In Barbados

The crystal clear waters surrounding Barbados deliver some of the best diving sites in the world and with a variety of wrecks and beautiful coral reefs a diving holiday to Barbados will not disappoint. With many historic shipwrecks in Carlisle Bay to the many reefs surrounding the island there is something for divers of all levels.

The Stavronikita is the best dive site in Barbados, this 365 foot Greek freighter is the most popular dive attraction in the area where you will see a great number of fish and varied marine life. Carlisle Bay Marine Park with 6 shipwrecks within close proximity to each other is by far one of the best dive sites in Barbados. The Berwyn (a 70ft WWI French Tug Boat), and the Cornwallis (Canadian freighter sunk by a German U Boat during WWII) are just some of the fascinating sights within the bay and a great variety of sea life can be observed as you make your way through the wrecks.

The Escape Hotel & Spa is located on the West Coast in the St James area making it the perfect base for your diving holiday. The spa offers a great choice of beauty treatments and massages and the relaxed atmosphere and comfortably decorated rooms have been rated highly amongst our customers.

If reef diving is more your thing then Barbados has more choice than you could ever need from the Old Fort off Needhams Point where you will see lots of small fish and even cannon balls to Lobster Reef for a great drift dive and the chance to see stingrays. Close Encounters is a great place for feeding fish and interacting with stingrays and Highwire located closeby features plenty of small creatures and a great location for underwater photography.

The Butterfly Beach Hotel is located on the south coast and gives easy access to the fantastic reef dive sites such as Close Encounters and many more. The fantastic beachfront setting is the perfect place to soak up the sun and the restaurant and beach bar provide a varied choice of fresh food and drinks.
