4.7
Dive West Side Scuba, established in 1993, is situated in the historic site of the Garrison Savannah near to the beautiful Marine Park Carlisle Bay on the South Coast of Barbados. Carlisle Bay is home to some of the most beautiful wrecks that Barbados has to offer. This all makes for ideal diving and exciting adventures.

All of our reefs have mooring buoys, we do not drop anchors. We are an Eco-dive facility.

With high safety standards, our attention to detail and small dive groups, you are sure to enjoy our underwater world. Our dive team is made up of three dive instructors and four experienced dive guides. All of our dives are led by a PADI certified dive master. Our staff are trained in medical first-aid and are there to assist should the need arise.

We are open for year-round diving with some of the best conditions from November through September. Daily trips are offered seven days a week. You are sure to enjoy our varying water temperatures from 78 degs f - 84 degs f. There are in excess of 20 prime dive sites which can be reached within a 10 - 20 minute boat ride from the dive centre.

See tropical fish on your scuba diving adventure!Dive West Side Scuba also offers dives for visiting cruise ship passengers. Only 20 minutes from the harbor, transport provided.

Barbados' reefs offer some of the richest variety of fish and coral found in the Caribbean. Shallow reefs and wrecks are ideal for the novice, while deeper reefs and wrecks will be sure to tantalize and challenge the experienced diver. For those wishing something a little less challenging we provide snorkeling trips to a shallow sunken barge and a beautiful reef abundant with marine life including schools of fish friendly enough to fed by hand. A unique snorkel and dive trip that features a close-up look at sea turtles is also available.

A fully equipped decompression chamber is located close by and two hybrid doctors are available 24hrs a day.

  • A great place to dive. So professional, Roy and Mr Banks took us on the Stav, gave a great briefing, pointed out a huge turtle and were really engaging. One of the great wrecks to dive anywhere. Pete is such a nice interesting guy. I would recommend this dive shop to anyone coming to Barbados.
  • Had a two tank dive here, excellent service! Had a great time saw some amazing wrecks and reefs!
  • Peter and his team are excellent! My 11 year old daughter and I completed our open water certification and felt completely comfortable and safe. My daughter became sea sick and the team were very supportive and got her back in the water where she completed her final dive and felt 100 percent better... I highly recommend West Side Scuba. Wonderful experience!
  • As a new diver, the service and extra attention Peter and staff provided was over the top. The experience was extraordinary as was the atmosphere. West Side Scuba is a top notch dive shop and would recommend to anyone. Thanks guys!!
