Comments If you are into wreck diving the SS Stavronikita is really starting to fall apart. Too bad because 30-some years ago when she was first sunk there was lots of penetration allowed. Now none.

UW Photo Comments Reefs are healthy but no branching corals. Most fish are rather small but there are Green & Hawksbill turtle(s) on every dive. This was my 15 trip to Barbados and I will again return. Lots of activities for non-divers.
