We are a family of five and haven’t been diving in three years. Phillip was an amazing dive master, extremely patient, and awesome with my kids and their nervous mother (me). He really took his time with us to make us all comfortable and guide us through some truly breathtaking dive spots. I can’t say enough about him and our boat captain. Phenomenal day!!!

While Barbados overall is an island of wonderful people who go out of their way to make sure you have a good time on your vacation, Phillip and the crew of Reefers & Wreckers are absolutely amazing! My pre-teen children had never dove before. There was no way, without Phillips easy going and calming demeanor or great teaching skills that we would have had such a blast. My son and my daughter both began decompenstating right as we were about to implement the dive skills to go under. I thought I was going to have to call it. Phillip gently and confidently led my kids to not only get over their immediate fear, but dominate the entire 45 minute dive (way more time other crews would have given us by the way). It was a great dive. We swam alongside wrecks awash with fish, turtles, rays, coral and crawling things of all kinds! Phillip's knowledge of diving and marine life captivated my children's imagination and has stimulated many stories and laughter from our kids days after our dive. Their excitement was worth every penny and then some. And by the way, Phillip's prices are very competitive. The value of Phillips knowledge, confidence, easy going charm and warmth are immeasurable. I hear good things from all the Dive Shops on Barbados, but Phillip really goes out of his way to understand his clients before the dive and make sure they feel safe and ready to explore. We can't wait to get back to Barbados and dive with Phillip again.

The absolute highlight of my trip to Barbados was diving with Phil & his crew. Over my two weeks there we dived a lovely variety of reefs and wrecks. If you're into your marine life there are an assortment of different trigger fish, parrot fish, trumpetfish and trunkfish and some good sized puffas, baracuda and spotted eagle rays. I was encouraged by the number of hawksbill turtles we saw which was a joy and reflects the care the country have for their turtles more generally. As an experienced scuba diver with a background in marine conservation I was particularly impressed by the respect Phil has for the Ocean. Phil & his team's relaxed and professional approach to diving is infectious and provides the perfect backdrop for diving at any level of experience. When my sister joined me on the island she did her Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) with Phil and I can't think of a better intro! Shoutout boat captain Jamali for the tunes. Thanks guys for a wonderful experience I would recommend to anyone.

I have been diving for 20 years, have in excess of 300 dives under my belt and am a competent diver. however this was my first trip ever without my one and only dive buddy (and husband). The call to the deep was great, but I was incredibly nervous and very, very emotional. I could not have been in better hands. I explained my predicament to Phil, he appreciated my honesty and my first dive was a shore dive off Carlisle Bay which was absolutely perfect. Confidence gained, I returned and enjoyed my diving more than I thought possible. Thank you Phil, you are an amazing person to dive with and a great ambassador for Barbados. You made my holiday so very special.

I did nine dives over five mornings with Phil and his crew in July 2021. I highly recommend Reefers & Wreckers. Phil is such a master at what he does and is always looking out for you. We did some lovely varied dives seeing lots of amazing marine life and wrecks. There was a lovely mix of divers - local and visitors, and different levels of experience. I just started diving two years ago so am still quite inexperienced and nervous but felt extremely well looked after. I will definitely be using Phil and his team when I come back to Barbados.
