Went to Barbados since we got a good deal on off season lodgings and wanted
to dive & relax. Stayed in St. Lawrence Gap in Christ Church (SW side
of island) at the Time Out Hotel. Found Divepro via the web which was right
down the street & set up some daily dives. The on shore shop which is
right across the street from a small harbor where the diveboat was
anchored. Was amazed and delighted at level of service. Shop run by Summer
Rain Worme (yep that's her real name...) a 6th generation
"Bajan". She & her team (Jen, Adrian, Duane & Greg)  had
all our gear ready for diving each day on board, took it all back to the
shop at night for rinse out & hanging each night we were there. I felt
pampered to the point of guilty. Dove some neat reefs & wrecks. Most
reefs 60 feet, wreck of the Stavronikita approx 100 ft. There's a marine
part with 5 wrecks at 30-40 feet with lots of corals & fish. Not a lot
of big pelagics, but LOADS of turtles, fish, corals & eagle rays. They
keep a close eye on new divers, but let more experienced divers do their
thing. Prices are reasonable, good selection of courses to take & staff
couldn't do enough for us whether diving or giving us tips on where to go,
what to see, & where to eat. Would go back in a heartbeat to dive with
these guys again! Hope they are around for a long while! Wish I knew how
good it was  - I'd have booked 2 weeks instead of one!
