We had a perfect day of diving with Richard of Lumbadive last week and the boat driver, Josh, was fantastic, too! As advanced divers, we enjoy being given a little freedom to explore, while still following the dive master and Richard provided just that. We dove Sisters Rock and then Something Special and both sites were wonderfully diverse in all forms of sea life. When we described things we saw once back on the dive boat, Richard knew exactly what we were describing by name. (We checked our DeLoach books later and he was spot on!) Lumbadive is a professional shop that clearly cares about making the best experience for their guests. We will be back!!

And now for something good! Thank you Diane AND Richard. You have again demonstrated a commendable amount of patience. My wife and I appreciate the fact you have been so supportive of all of us here at anchor. Providing logistics support, forwarding government information when it becomes available. Clarifying the sometimes confusing rules. This time would truly have been even more challenging without your kindness, understanding and UNPAID Volunteer efforts. Expectations are key here and I expect the quarentine to relax in stages. But only through the trust relationship we create. We have to trust the authorities who are the legal and moral authority of this beautiful island, and the government has to trust us. That we will follow the laws put into place to manage this challenge. Thankfully the majority of people who are here have abided by the rules. I am sad that some have not, but there will always be those people in any society. Slowly over the course of time we will have more privilages. But it will take time, and Trust. I sense an end to this. We are already seeing more shopping days. I would expect in five days we have more shops available... ( I am personally looking forward to getting our fresh water pump repaired). How do we thank Grenadians who have come into our lives. We also appreciate you are helping organize donations for local families. my wife and I have donated to a Go Fund Me Page as recommended by Alison @ Paradise Beach Club, Carriacou. Either way it's time to help others as you have helped us. Thanks for ALL your efforts, you can expect our support in kind very soon! Time to go swimming!

Eljeem, Thank you for this lovely review on our services during the curfew and confinement due to COVID-19. We will continue our support till the authority will allow the Island to come back to activities everyone were doing. We at Lumbadive are treating people the way we would like to be treated. So it is natural that we gave our support to the sailors community and to local people less fortunate. Doing groceries was fun, we never shop this much :) some days we had over 16 to do. Collecting non perishable food to redistribute it is our way to say thanks o Carriacou population to accept us on their Island for the last 10 years. Eljeem, keep safe and healthy

I did two tanks with Lumbadive for a week and every dive was a different spot. Then we went out snorkeling with my wife and even another great time. Thorough, professional, courteous and knowledgeable is a great way to describe this operation. It’s a joy to dive with those that just love what they do. Do not let the experience pass you by, go Lumbadive!

I was lucky to be able to do 4 dives with Richard. We was my referral instructor for Wreck Diving and Night Diving. He was very informative and made sure I understood what I was about to do and how to do it. He was also eager to share his extensive scuba diving knowledge in other areas and as a newer diver I really appreciated that. He also has a great sense of humor that I appreciated. The local boat captains were also very experienced and efficient. I appreciated that the everyone took steps to make sure the reef and animals are preserved for the future. I've dived at other places in Grenada and I would definitely rank this one as the best. You will appreciate the smaller groups and more individualized attention.

A terrific dive company fluent in English and French with the best divemasters, perhaps in the Caribbean. You're in great hands with Saviant, Johanne, Richard and Diane. They love what they do, and it shows. Lots to enjoy in Carriacou along with other great diving favorites in Les Saintes, Dominica and Bequia.
