Event Description

Barbados is hosting its 3rd annual Dive Festival.

Dive Fest Barbados is being held Jul 2nd -7th and will feature water awareness programs, scuba and freediving demonstrations, beach clean ups, conservation tips, lionfish hunting and tasting, as well as scuba dives all over the island – including the exhilarating east coast.

Barbados is home to a number of 5 Star PADI dive resorts, more than 10 ship wrecks and over 30 different dive sites. Nine local dive shops will be participating in Barbados Dive Fest ’19 and offering tickets for discounted dives and demos throughout the festival.

Touring the open waters in Barbados does not necessarily require that you get wet. Dive Fest Barbados will feature dry tours led by renowned Conservationists that will help you gain a better understanding for our ecosystem and what you can do to help.
