My family and I took seven dives with The Dive Shop Ltd, three of them being the Advanced Open Water course. My sister and I were able to complete it, thanks to Dive Master Kane. The shop itself has beautiful locations, and the boat coxswains, Michael and Julian, are knowledgeable and friendly. We loved it!

Had one of the best dives I've ever had and saw some incredible stuff. The team we're more than accommodating for me and extremely professional. Kane and Julian we're wonderful dive masters. It had been a year since I last dived and were very professional in running me through everything again. Kane got some Gopro footage and photos of the... More

Being in Barbados for the first time I didn't really know which dive shop to go with. I looked at almost all of them on line and all seemed fairly good and pretty much the same price. So I ended up emailing The Dive Shop and they responded very quickly to my email. I told them when I was thinking... More

Kane our guide and Mike (boat operator) were fantastic. We had two great dives, great reef and trench the first dive, tons of fish and a ray. Second dive was 5 out of 8 sunken ships, first time I have swam through a ship, engine room, up a spiral stair case into the wheel house. This was a well run... More

I was referred to the dive shop through family and it was an amazing recommendation. I got my open water certification in 3 days, and my instructor, Kane, was fantastic! We were both very lucky to see a manta ray on my second day there in Carlisle bay! I'll definitely be going back to get my advanced certification in the... More

The Dive Shop is AMAZING! Kane is the best instructor you could ask for. My husband and I both went through the certification course with Kane and it was beyond worth the investment. I even purchased some happy turtle sun cream that Kane's girlfriend made!

I was visiting Barbados with work, so had limited time available. I spoke to Fatima shortly before I left and she managed to book me in for a PADI Open Water course with an excellent instructor (Kane) for the time I had available. The course was well structured, and delivered really well. I'll be coming back again hopefully! The only... More

My group reached out to The Dive Shop Ltd. in the early fall of 2016 for our trip in December of 2016. They offered a very reasonable cost for a trip for our group (comprised of 2 OW certified divers and 4 snorkelers) with transportation to and from the cruise terminal. Barbados is kind of unique in that the dive... More

We called in advance to see if this dive shop would rent us a mask and some fins, as we wanted to snorkel out into Carlisle bay to see some turtles and the wrecks, and the staff were both helpful and friendly. Gear was USD 15 per person for an hour and a half, when the other alternatives are to... More
