Hi there, I’m an experienced diver and Barbados regular. My adult daughter wants to certify on her visit this year. Unfortunately it looks like my regular dive operator is in dry dock for awhile. Can anyone recommend a small group, eco friendly, easy going dive shop where she can certify in January?

thanks!

It's been many years, but I spent a week with Andrew at EcoDive Barbados and had a great time. He would pick me up at my hotel in the morning and most days it was just me and a one legged Italian dude (sorry, forgot your name if you are out there) on the boat (six pack) and Andrew took us to some really great spots that aren't normally hit too often. Andrew's boat doesn't have a head so if that is important to you then Andrew might not be the best choice. I was traveling alone so after diving Andrew and I would hang out and hit local eateries before he dropped me off at my hotel again. Fantastic guy and very cool operation.

O-ring, I so agree! Andrew and Mikey at EcoDive are the best anywhere! Unfortunately it’s EcoDive that’s in dry dock. He won’t have his boat in the water when I’m there. Should have mentioned it was them. Whenever, he’s back in the water, I highly recommend!
