Try a Resort Course Today!
With a wide range of options for beginner divers from ages 10+ (8+ in the pool), we have something for everyone. With one of our 5 Star PADI instructors we can get you in on a real dive on your first day. This is a great one time experience or it can be credited toward an international PADI scuba diving certification. The most popular programme is the PADI Discover Scuba Diving which runs daily from 12 pm - 4 pm and includes an introduction, gear fitting, instruction in the pool and a real ocean dive over our shipwrecks and reef in Carlisle Bay Marine Park. This is a great option for a friend or family member to join a certified diver on a beautiful and easy afternoon dive, or, for a combination group of divers and snorkelers.

Sea Turtles & Shipwrecks
Sea Turtle & Shipwreck Snorkeling in Barbados
Every afternoon and a few mornings a week we offer a snorkeling safari that takes our guests to snorkel with endangered - but seen here in the wild - Green Sea Turtles. A great combination trip this excursion also stops with the shipwrecks of the Carlisle Bay Marine Park where we get to see the WWI Berwyn and a piece of the WWII torpedoed Cornwallis. Trips are offered in combination with scuba divers if you have some family members that would like to experience it from under the water, and snorkeling is for all ages! For guests that are trying for the first time and are booked in advance we welcome you to join us for a free snorkel lesson in the pool. Or if you prefer to work it out with us on the boat our staff are always around to help with tips and tricks to help our guests make the most of their experience.
