Diving in Barbados

Unlike many of the islands in the Caribbean which are of volcanic origin, Barbados was formed primarily from coral. Diving conditions, including visibility, are good year-round. The average water temperature is mid 80Fs in summer (mid-Apr to Nov) and high 70Fs in winter (Dec to mid-April).

Barbados is an excellent destination for divers of all levels - beginners learning to dive, those looking to get some scuba experience, and seasoned divers. Most dive shops in Barbados offer a full range of PADI certified courses for any skill level. And even the most experienced divers will benefit from teaming up with a local dive shop to locate the best sites & get insider tips!
