    Tennis Lessons

    by tacprc Written May 22, 2013

    In early January 2012 I travelled to Barbados on a cruise ship. Prior to my arrival I arranged for a tennis lesson with Duncan Evanson of Advantage Tennis Services. Duncan transported me from the cruise port to the National Tennis Centre (part of the Gary Sobers Sports Complex) and then back again after the lesson. The Centre has four hard courts in good condition and a nice building with restrooms plus cold drinks for sale. Duncan was a good player and instructor. Happy hitting.

    Hightide Watersports

    by MikeAtSea Updated Apr 4, 2011

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hightide Watersports is situated in St. James some 15 minute drive South of Bridgetown. They have various boats and offer dive trips to the dive sites along the coast of Barbados. The boats were great, however the dive master leading the dive could have been a lot better. He did not give a lot information about the dive itself and we had to read up on the history of the wrecks and get information about the reef and fish we saw via an other source.

    Equipment: All equipment is on hire.

    Dive Dottins Reef

    by MikeAtSea Updated Mar 30, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Close to the wreck site is a reef that runs parallel to the coast - Dottins Reef - average depth here is around 14 - 18 meters making it an easy and relaxing dive. Lots of different corals and again it is teeming with fish both on the reef and also in mid-water.

    Dive the Stavronikita

    by MikeAtSea Updated Mar 30, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is a 365ft Greek freighter that was deliberately sunk to form an artificial reef, this wreck is now home to numerous fish and corals. The Stavronikita lies in 120ft of water with the stern at 100ft and the bow at 70ft.
    The wreck is teeming with fish life - including creole wrasse, a huge barracuda and lots more.
    I dived the wreck in easy conditions - though watch your depth since the sand is quiet deep.
    Average depth on the dive was around 28 m or 80 feet.

    Equipment: Dive gear - which is available for rent on the entire island
