We snorkelled over this from the beach. Very cool. I've seen older and better wrecks but still awesome and lots of fish. Worth a go.

The Stavronikita, though rather deep. We stayed near the deck at between 70 and 80 feet for the most part, and that was more than great. The black coral on the Stav is amazing, the biggest and thickest stands we have seen. Two turtles were grazing on the sponges, including a very large green turtle 4-5 feet. A school of... More

The highlight was the art display on the Stav. A great idea, and very well executed... sadly now long gone, but gave us Badas dive clubbers some great photos and great memories.

The best wreck dive in Barbados! You must experience it to appreciate. Bow at 80 feet, stern at 130. Visibility approximately 80 feet. One of the best dives I have ever done!

Really enjoyed doing this dive....we went to 135ft to see the propeller. Since it was a deep dive, we were not down very long.

Absolutely stunning. Covered in sooooooo much coral and fish life. I had to do it more than once! I haven't seen a wreck so encrusted in coral since I dived the WW2 Japanese wrecks in Truk Lagoon back in the mid 1990's. DON'T dive in Barbados without doing it.

Stav is a great wreck if you are an experienced diver. Quite deep, 30-40m, so monitor your dive parameters carefully. There can be some strong current so you may need to use an anchor line to get to the wreck. Good visibility and well lit despite the depth.
