Barbados is a small island located in the lesser Antilles in the Caribbean. It was part of Great Britain and is now an independent nation.

I found it a good destination for scuba diving in the Caribbean.  With his visibility of 50 to 75 feet and warm calm water.  Below is a series of photographs taken on my recent trip.  I dove with the ECO Dive located at House of Pillars, Cavens Lane, Bridgetown, St. Michael, Barbados.

We went on four dive sites over two days for first was as Asta Reef in the second was Carlysle Bay Marine Park, this was my favorite diver site on the island with calm waters and 6 shipwrecks in close proximity. We were able see three on the dive. The second day we went to  Shark Reef and Lobster Reef, current was strong on Shark Reef  but otherwise a good dive.

ECO Dive’s boat holds six people which makes it a great place to get personal attention. Andrew Western, Instructor/Manager and Michael Waltress, Divemaster and captain of the boat did a great job showing me where to find good subjects for photography. I highly recommend that if you’re going to Barbados contact them, their service was excellent and Andrew’s knowledge of diving and photography very helpful to great photographs.

Thank you Andrew and Michael.
