In addition to scuba diving, water activities include
surfing, fishing, windsurfing, kayaking and more. But
what makes Barbados such a wonderful place, and the
reason why so many visitors keep returning to the island
year after year, is the people. Barbadians, called Bajans,
are warm and friendly, always ready to greet you with
a sincere smile.
Whether new to diving or a seasoned pro, you will be
amazed by underwater Barbados. The fringes and reefs
found off this island blossom with healthy sponges,
coral, plant life. There are a number of reefs, each
one unique in its own special way.
The barrier reefs, located 1/2 - 2 miles from shore
contain large coral heads which form the habitat for
thousands of beautiful fish. Larger organisms are also
found on these reefs, feeding on the smaller fish. The
Hawksbill turtle can also be found on these reefs. Fringes
and patching reefs are found closer to shore and have
smaller coral formations and more abundant plant life
then the barrier reefs. These reefs are home to Sea
Horses, Frog Fish, Giant Sand Eels and many other marine
Wrecks form fascinating habitats for marine life and
Barbados has several excellent sites for wreck diving.

located at Folkstone Marine Park are two of the most
