Trial Dive With Us!
Can you breathe? Can you swim?
You're good to go sister!
We can take you on a PADI Discovery Dive which was developed so non-divers could jump in the water with us and try. Just like that. No need for a PADI certificate. If you like it (you will) and want to do more (you should), that dive will have counted as your first towards certification. Win. Win. (Win.)
Want to come out as a group?
Some can dive and the others can snorkel. Easy.
Let's go out to where the turtles are because that's where the shipwrecks are too. In the heart of Carlisle Bay we got it all. Just come, be merry and we'll take care of the rest.
After 20 years in the dive industry, I decided to open my own dive company. My aim is to offer and more personalised service with a smaller boat, taking fewer numbers to ensure I provide a much better wuality experience to all of my divers and friends! After all, anybody can teach you to dive, I want to teach you to love to dive!
My son completed his certification (he is 12) just yesterday. Karina is an outstanding instructor that offers the quality you would typically get in North America. Great personality, excellent dive sites.
I travel for my work weekly and meet a lot of people, I have to say this is one of the best experiences I have had in many years.
Meet the crew
PADI Specialty Instructor
No one runs the show like Karina does. When she's at the helm, everyone thinks she must have a really cool boss. Know this now. Karina is the boss.
No one has cleaned the ocean of dangerous lionfish like Karina has. No one smiles as much as her when gutting and scaling her catch on the beaches. The legends of sailors drowning at sea at the hands of mermaids are false. There's only one mermaid and she's our Pretty Monster.
She'll be your instructor. She'll be your guide.
G (for good)
PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer
Famed for inventing the mask and fins, he also coined the term in Jaws "You're gonna need a bigger boat". He is the last letter in Scuba Diving and the first word in everything that is Great. He designed the sea-shell and can last longer than most rocks underwater.
When he started GFish Barbados, he had over 20,000 dives so the government of Barbados sank a ship and then celebrated 50 years of independence. He is the island's most renowned waterman and the dawn of GFish diving was long overdue.
Born a freediver, this idiot refused to learn how to Scuba Dive until he turned 30 and hasn't stopped complaining since. It's entirely his fault though, people told him to get his PADI his whole life and he always thinks he knows best. Use him as your motivator. If you haven't learned to dive yet, he is the best person to speak to. He'll have you in the water in no time.
G's first student-come-instructor, who knew that all these years later he would be back in Barbados.
PADI & AIDA Freediving Instructor
Barbados national record holder, Alex is originally a Cornish Pasty and is our resident spearfishing guide. After a hunt he is renowned for saying "My one is bigger than yours". He has been teaching his art from when he spearfished his way out of kindergarten aged one. Starting with a relaxation ritual, Alex calms you down so that your heart rate drops and your senses enter a state of zen. That's when he takes you out to stab fish underwater. Super relaxing.
He is the island's most qualified freediving instructor and we are proud to have him on our team.
Underwater Photography Instructor
Lucy Agace has over 30 years of experience diving all over the world. In Barbados she volunteers for a coral re-growing and re-planting project called Corall and she is a certified INON UK Underwater Photography Instructor.
Lucy can help you get the best out of your compact camera system and the subjects encountered. Part of the challenge of wildlife photography is approaching and knowing the subject to get a successful shot. Lucy will teach you exactly what to know. Coral reefs are fragile ecosystems which offer us so much to see, enjoy and appreciate and Lucy will always photograph with respect for the reefs.
Turtles & Wrecks
We are based in Carlisle Bay which is home to the island's richest underwater marine park. 2-minutes by boat and we're swimming with the turtles. The sea is flat, crystal clear and the most vibrant turquoise your eyes have ever seen.
Try Scuba (No Experience Required)
Discover Scuba Diving
There is a PADI dive that was designed for people who want to try diving for the first time.
Nervous? You're not alone.
It's only normal! We show you a few moves and before you know it you will be hooked like the rest of us.
30min Warmup + 40min Dive
We have outings for every level and if you haven't had a go in a while, we'll give you a refresher course. It doesn't take long and your confidence will rush back.
If you want to go out with non-diving friends and family, we can definitely take you all out together. We have dives that snorkelers can enjoy from the surface.
Learn From The Best
The First Course
The course has been redesigned and modernised so that you can do the whole course online. This means that when you get to Barbados we will take you diving for two days and you will emerge a PADI Open Water Diver.
Advanced Open Water
More Fluent, Better, Deeper
Take the next step and we will take you on your Deep and Wreck dives - the critical components to becoming an Advanced Open Water Diver. Then pick three other specialties and receive the underwater education of a lifetime.
Emergency First Response
The Crown Jewel of PADI Diving
Once you have 60 dives under your belt, we will build the confidence in you to make your diving second nature. This will give you the ability to watch others for signs of anxiety in order to prevent accidents. We will also teach you everything you need to know when saving people in distress.
The Crown Jewel of PADI Diving
Our partner company is the only school on the island that can teach you to freedive to a PADI Advanced level and AIDA 3*. National record holder Alex Davies has represented Barbados in world championships and his current deepest is 84 metres in CWT.
Other Activities at
The Barbados Cruising Club
After our dives we go straight to Dippers. It's the bar inside the Barbados Cruising Club and serves a good deal of great beach food - and they also serve up a mean rum punch.
The heart and soul of the BCC, the team there will help you out with beach chairs, parasols, paddle boarding lessons, kayak rentals and the list goes on. Simply the best.
LRN 2 Sail
Topaz time! Forget age for a minute because these guys will teach you about the wind. It's never too late to learn so get your sail on and let these guys show you what it's really about.
If you have never tried Paddleboard Yoga, this is your chance. Stop all of your prejudices because it doesn't matter if you've ever done yoga or if you've ever paddleboarded. It's great fun for any age group or level.
