Fun Stuff

Lionfish
Lionfish are an invasive species causing problems in the Atlantic Ocean. They are voracious predators and reproduce in large numbers. Without any naturals predators present in Barbados, Spearfishers have had to play an active role in protecting our reefs from being entirely consumed by lionfish. Be sure to get a sample of lionfish while visiting Barbados. It is delicious, nutritious and the most sustainable fish available. Stop by our featured seminars on how to catch and cook lionfish.

Did you know?

Some divers log 100s of dives without ever seeing a Seahorse? Here in Barbados, you can often find them on your First Dive ever!

Marine Protected Areas

Carlisle Bay Marine Park is the underwater treasure of Barbados. A perfect site for swimming, snorkelling, diving, freediving or paddling around. There is no fishing permitted in the marine park which makes it a safe haven for all of our marine creatures. The 7 shipwrecks create an artificial reef to help them thrive.  

Did you know?

Barbados has over 35 dive sites and more than 15 ship wrecks, some of which date back to World War 1 & 2.
