Hi there, vising Barbados staying on east coast from 7-15th March this year. I have around 80 dives to my name and been very lucky to have dived all over world. I like the big stuff and it seems my only chance of seeing sharks is on east coast but is it possible/worth diving there in March? If not, which dive sites would you recommend elsehwere for rays and turtles at this time of year. I am not overly fussed about wreck diving but could be persuaded. In addiont, my partner - who is not a fan of diving would love to see turtles while snorkelling - is this possible? Thanks community!
NWP dive site is spectacular for freediving as it has the most amazing clear water, visibility and marine life ranging from turtles, barracudas, moray eels, eagle rays, rays and reef sharks. Top of the wall lies in about 45 feet and drops down to 7000 feet.
We went to a beach nearby the Diving shop and spent almost all afternoon showing the wonders of the Caribbean Sea to a young latin couple.
They were afraid at first of not being able to do all the basic diving breathing exercises, but as soon as they started they realized how easy it was. After a short introduction we start going deep down until we got to 9 mts.
As soon as we start diving we could see fishes and mainly coral reefs with impressive and beautiful colors.
They enjoyed it very much and definitely will try it again.
Seems way back in the mists of time, however.
Great shore diving in gin clear water. House reef was lovely. Highlight was the wreck of the Hilma Hooker.
Nudibranchs, Frogfish & Seahorses.
Accommodation was great, clean & well maintained.
