We dove out of The Dive Shop in Bridgetown.  Haroon and the gang there were
so nice.  They picked us up every morning at our rental house and dropped
us off every afternoon.  Even on a trip to town, we got mixed up on the
transit system and Haroon's wife drove us home.  No problem.

There were 5 of us diving and we were able to basically tell them which
dive sites we wanted to see and if the conditions were good we went there. 
We got our Wreck Cert there and they were so thorough and made sure we
understood everything.  The wreck Stavronikita is well worth the trip.  It
has tons of coral growth on it and lots of animals.  Carlisle Bay is also
great for wrecks.  They have planted them there but there are about six of
them and easy access with lots of growth.  Barbados has a 3km reef and it
is abundant with big fans, coral and lots of see life.  

Surface intervals are made back at the dive shop and make sure you eat
right outside their place at this little shack.  The guys there makes the
best fish sandwiches.  All the locals eat there and it is priced
reasonable.  

Make sure you also dive Bottle Ground.  This is where any old bottles you
find, you get to keep.  

Make sure you also see the sites on land.  You can tour the whole island in
one day and see everything.
