Comments  
Andrew runs a small dive boat, however, the lack of creature comforts is
more than compensated by the fantastic service he and his crew offer. 
After a dive in the Carlise Bay Marine Park (we swam around 5 wrecks!)
Andrew took time to explain what we had seen and the micro and macro view
of the reefs.  After a surface interval with homemade pastries and local
juices we did a drift dive called Asta turtles, eels, baracuda, soft and
hard coral.  Upon returning to the dive shop our gear was rinsed for us and
we were returned to the cruise ship pier.  If your travel plans include
Barbados consider using Ecodive Barbados.  The relaxed customer focus
Andrew provides is refreshing and provides for some fantastic diving.
