Two Tank Dive
During this Barbados shore excursion enjoy an amazing two-tank dive in Barbados, one of the premier scuba dive locations in the Caribbean.
Barbados is one of the few islands in the Caribbean that can provide 365 days of scuba diving each year. Depending on water and weather conditions that day, in the winter months the boat dive trips usually go to the west and south coasts of the island, both of which are renowned for excellent dives. The most frequent destination is the historic Carlisle Bay Marine Park, with its six shipwrecks and tens of thousands of colorful reef fish and turtles. The wrecks sit between 20 and 55 feet under the surface, offering a dive for all kinds of divers.
During the summer, we typically dive the scenic and untouched east coast, where large fish can often be seen.
Divers enjoy warm water temperatures year round, varying from 77° F in the winter months of January through March, to 84° F in the summer months of July through September. Typically, divers have the luxury of diving in swimsuits or skinsuits in the summer. In the winter, 3mm "shorties" (short wetsuits) are available for rent.
Your dive includes all equipment, including tanks, BCD, regulator, mask and fins.
Please note: A taxi ride (NOT included in the tour price above) is required to get from the pier to the starting location for your activity. This drive is approximately 10 minutes from the pier and costs about $4 US per individual. You will be returned to the cruise terminal at the end of the Barbados tour free of charge.
Health restrictions apply and a waiver and medical statement is required to be filled out by all participants. Please look at the following example:
PADI Health Questionnaire
If you cannot pass the questionnaire, or do not have the required physician's statement, you will not be permitted to dive. Guests not able to dive will not be entitled to a refund so please look at the questionnaire BEFORE booking this tour.
IN ADDITION: If you are taking medication, consult your doctor before participating in this program.
The dive was fantastic! Saw seven sea turtles, lots of rays and plenty of attractive coral. Everyone at the dive shop and on the boat did everything they could to make the experience the best possible. Would dive with them again.
I was very happy with the dive company, Barbados Blue. They were knowledgeable, and took us to a great dive site. I also felt very comfortable with their safety standards. It's nice to see Shore Excursions select such good companies as their partners.
Reviewer: A scuba diver
Really enjoyed the dive.( I did one other dive through cruise ship excursion, and it was very disappointing.) Thanks for giving us a great dive.
The scuba dive masters were extremely experienced and made our scuba diving experience safe and fun.
We were very impressed by the friendliness and professionalism exhibited by everyone at Barbados Blue. In fact, it makes us start planning our next trip, focused solely at Barbados. Reef life was abundant, and our guides were patient, watchful, and knowlegeable. We've been to five scuba-focused cruise / shore-excursions, and this was the very best.
