Reasons to Dive in Barbados

Barbados is the only coral limestone island in the Caribbean. This provides a coral reef along the entire coast, which makes it a first-class diving destination.

Crystalline waters: With 60 feet to 100 feet of visibility throughout the year, you will be challenged to absorb everything there is to see.

Warm water: Sea temperatures average between 26 and 29 degrees Celsius throughout the year. This will only vary to a degree more or less in-depth.

Diving all year: Since visibility, water temperature and sea conditions are quite constant, diving in Barbados is generally good throughout the year.

Ideal conditions for beginners training: With almost perfect conditions and a variety of excellent shallow dive sites, the conditions are ideal for learning to dive. 

Beginner training to Dive Master: The full spectrum of diving training is available in Barbados with basic courses in fundamental diving and a variety of specialized courses.

Boat diving: All recreational diving is done by boat on the west and south coasts of the island.

Wreck diving for beginners and advanced: Barbados is known as the wreck diving capital of the Caribbean, with its variety of wrecks that have developed over the years in fabulous artificial reefs.

Nitrox diving: Nitrox diving has become popular due to the decreased nitrogen effect and the perception of less fatigue. Hightide Watersports, located at Coral Reef Hotel on the west coast, offers a Nitrox service both in training and in mixed gas supply by agreement.

Technical diving: Advanced recreational diving in Barbados is increasingly technical.
