So it looks like i will be getting a free trip down to Barbados for work in a few weeks and i wanted to see if anyone had any experience with diving and operators down in that area?

 

 

Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated

Yes have been diving there, relly quite enjoyed it too. The snorkelling just off shore is great as well.

 

The classic dive shop in Barbados is West Side Scuba - http://www.westsidescuba.com/

 been around for ever, always good when I have used them (it's been a while)

 

I have also heard goo things about Barbados Blue - http://www.divebarbadosblue.com/

 

and Eco Dive Barbados - http://ecodivebarbados.com/

 

The last two I have never personally used. You will find your choice may be made up for you by where you are staying. But I would highly recommend whomever you dive with you do the Stavronikita at least once.

I used Hightide Watersports at the Coral Reef Club which is owned by Willie Hewitt although he now has a couple of partners. No recent experience but he ran a tight ship with good dive guides and was sympathetic to my photographic needs .

 

Also agree that the Stavronikita is a must on your trip.
