To be honest the general diving in Barbados is nice but not challenging. Most operators take you to the shallow reefs and purposely sunken wrecks on the west coast. However, ask nicely and they will take you to the Stav!. Decent sized wreck with lots...More

this is a deep dive, so only advanced divers or higher should go, but well worth the dive. Can't go inside the wreck anymore but well worth it.

This is a shipwreck that you can visit scuba diving. Was a great dive, we stayed on the deck which was around 90 feet. Saw all the cool parts without going down to the sand. Was a very cool dive!

Open water doesn’t give you the certification to dive this wreck and a reputable operator shouldn’t take you here unless it is counting towards an advanced level certificate and you are with an instructor.
