A great place to dive. So professional, Roy and Mr Banks took us on the Stav, gave a great briefing, pointed out a huge turtle and were really engaging. One of the great wrecks to dive anywhere. Pete is such a nice interesting guy. I would recommend this dive shop to anyone coming to Barbados.
Had a two tank dive here, excellent service! Had a great time saw some amazing wrecks and reefs!
