You dive relatively deep so make sure you're ok for this. I really enjoyed swimming in and out of portholes, etc - just playing around the wreck really. Visibility very good as always.

And the Stav is no exception. Overall, though, Barbados diving is about average at best. The reefs are fairly well fished out, though we did see one small turtle, and caught a lobster. With a year-round open season on anything that swims, you'll never confuse Barbados with Bonaire. The Stav actually offers a few dive profiles. With the bow keel at about 100' and the prop down about 140, you can do the once around the deck and up for about 25 minutes of diving. If you want to drop to the prop, make sure you watch your air and your dive time. I also did a nice leisurely "hanging around the bow deck and wheelhouse poking my head into openings and taking my time being nosy" dive staying from 60-80' and stretching my bottom time nicely. The signature Barbados dive, don't miss it.

well preserved, intentionally sunk diving wreck. Quite safe with most clutter removed and many large holes cut into the side for access on various levels. The stern section is a little deep (>90 ft) for recreational diving but keeping an eye on your bottom time will give you a few minutes down at the bottom without needing to decompress much on the ascent.

We dived with High Tide Water Sports from their catamaran dive boat. They picked us up from our hotel at Alomd Beach Village and dropped us back after the dives. Very professional set up and Sim the guide and Victor the boat captain were very helpful and informative.

This was our first dive in Barbados. We were dissappointed to say the least. Part of this may in part be to that the visability was pretty poor - maybe 25 feet. It is a huge wreck, but there is not much to see. Few fish, minimal coral, nothing exciting. Overall, average wreck.
