Scuba diving in Barbados

Image
Did you know that Barbados is an excellent spot for scuba diving? We have several excellent reefs and wrecks for you to explore whether you're new to scuba diving or are a divemaster!

Carlisle Bay on the west coast of Barbados is a particularly good spot for wreck diving, while the south coast has a wonderful array of reefs. The Stavronikita, located at Folkstone Marine Park is another popular wreck, lyingin 120ft of water with the stern at 100ft and the bow at 70ft. See more Barbados dive sites at http://barbados.org/diving/divesite.htm.

A local dive operator will ensure you have a safe and enjoyable time scuba diving in Barbados. See http://barbados.org/diveops.htm to locate one.

Open House day in Barbados: St. Ann's Fort and Drill Hall

Image
Today is Open House day in Barbados! This week the Barbados National Trust will be hosting you at St. Ann's Fort and Drill Hall.

This is a rare opportunity to visit two of the Garrison's historic military buildings occupied by the Barbados Defense Force. Built in 1702 during the reign of Queen Anne, the fort's picturesque upper keep invites strolling. The naval magazine beneath displays the finest known collection of seventeenth century English iron cannon. In the Drill Hall, built onto the fort's moat that was never flooded, enjoy the West India Regiment memorabilia, and view the remarkable Garrison area.

The Caribbean is still full of secrets. One recently revealed is that Barbados has the world's rarest collection of 17th century English iron cannon. Read more at http://barbados.org/garison.htm

Next week... it's Malvern Great House in St. John!

If you thought you went the extra mile to make Valentine's Day special for your partner, Neil Ward really pushed the boat out. The super-fit ski instructor didn't just arrange to marry fiancee Louise Robertson in Barbados - he also rowed 2,500 miles to get to the ceremony on the beach.
