Scuba DivingThe fringes and reefs found off Barbados blossom with healthy sponges, coral and plant life. There are several types of reefs, each one unique in its own special way.The barrier reefs, located 1/2 - 2 miles from shore contain large coral heads which form the habitat for thousands of beautiful fish. Larger organisms are also found on these reefs, feeding on the smaller fish. Hawksbill turtles can also be found on these reefs. Fringing reefs  closer to shore are home to Sea Horses, Frog Fish, Giant Sand Eels and many other marine creatures. Wrecks form habitats for marine life and Barbados has several excellent sites for wreck diving Carlisle Bay, with 200 reported wrecks, and the Stavronikita, located at Folkestone Marine Park, are two of the most popular sites.Barbados is ideal for year-round diving but is probably best in the summer months. The visibility ranges from 40 to 70ft and the water temperature is a consistent 80 degrees F.
