We decided to dive while on our Western Caribbean cruise. We picked Barefoot Cay in advance after checking the scuba boards. Let me just say that this place is awesome and rocks big time! Diving was great; prices were reasonable; dive guides (Emma) were incredibly knowledgeable and friendly; Safety was emphasized; dive rigs were set up before the dives - then they helped us into our BCs and into the water- then they broke down our rigs and cleaned them in their fresh water tanks... It was incredibly relaxing; incredibly beautiful; and incredibly pleasant.... The people at Barefoot Cay are the real deal... Boats were the perfect size; number of divers was small so we got lots of personal attention; dive briefings were excellent... They even arranged our transportation from the cruise ship to the resort and then back again; all the while assuring us that we would have no trouble getting back to the boat in time and having a little time to shop (for my wife)... Coral reefs are gorgeous and lots and lots of marine life (saw a squid for the first time just scooting along)... cool cool cool... Shout out to my Barefoot Cay peeps.... This was one of the best diving trips i have ever taken...

There's nothing to dislike with Barefoot Divers.....they're the best. They don't let you lift a finger and the reefs are amazing! We couldn't wait for the next day so we could dive again and we extended 4nights because it was so much fun.

My wife and I had dove before, but never bothered to get certified. As a result, we did another "discover diving" class here and added an additional dive. The dive masters were superb, the equipment in good condition, and the overall staff demeanor was very inviting. I highly recommend Barefoot Divers and maybe one of the most professional outfits on the island.

Knew what they were doing but had fun at it. The crew kept us chuckling al the time and even sometimes underwater! They knew the dive sites very well and did great predives.
