Dive West Side Scuba, established in 1993, is situated in the Bridgetown Careenage near to the beautiful Marine Park Carlisle Bay on the South Coast of Barbados. Carlisle Bay is home to some of the most beautiful wrecks that Barbados has to offer which makes for ideal diving and exciting adventures. All of their reefs have mooring buoys, and they do not drop anchors making them an Eco-dive facility.
With high safety standards, attention to detail and small dive groups, you are sure to enjoy the underwater world diving with West Side Scuba. Their dive team is made up of dive instructors and experienced dive guides and all their dives are led by a PADI certified dive master. The staff are also trained in medical first-aid and are there to assist should the need arise. Open for year-round diving with some of the best conditions from November through September with daily trips offered seven days a week. There are in excess of 20 prime dive sites which can be reached within a 10 - 20 minute boat ride from the dive centre.
Barbados' reefs offer some of the richest variety of fish and coral found in the Caribbean. Shallow reefs and wrecks are ideal for the novice, while deeper reefs and wrecks will be sure to tantalize and challenge the experienced diver. For those wishing something a little less challenging, they provide snorkeling trips to a shallow sunken barge and a beautiful reef abundant with marine life including schools of fish friendly enough to fed by hand. A unique snorkel and dive trip that features a close-up look at sea turtles is also available. A fully equipped decompression chamber is located close by and two hybrid doctors are available 24hrs a day.
