Whether you are certified in scuba or just an avid snorkeler you should definitely check out Lumbadive in Tyrrell Bay. I was the only snorkeler in the group but still had a great time. Caught quite a few Lion fish, which they even let me take one home to cook up.

Dear John We are happy you enjoyed yourself in that Lionfish hunt. You are right, snorkelers, divers and swimmers are more then welcome to participate. We will never get rid of that invasive lionfish but if we keep controlling the number, we may be able tp save the reefs around Carriacou. Knowing that a female produce 2 pouches of 15... More

I did my PADI Junior Open Water course with Richard. It was a great course and they took me to some really sweet dive sites. I was nervous to begin with but by the end of the week I couldn't wait to go diving again. I would definitely recommend them to other kids who want to do their dive course... More

First of all, the actual dive was one of the most beautiful I've ever been on. More importantly, I had not dived in many years and I was pretty nervous about it. But Richard and Diane are two of the best instructors--kind, generous, supportive and talented with just the right mix of encouragement and concern.

Great harbour front dive shop in beautiful Tyrell Bay run by a very friendly group of primarily french-speaking hosts. Laugh a minute and two STUNNING dives (the sisters was a region highlight, not just the island).

Thank you for this lovely review. It is true that Sisters Rocks site is the most renowned of Carriacou and it deserve its accreditation. Gorgonians are tall, lots of fish, pelagics, corals soft and hard of many colors.

He is calm, patient and explains super well the techniques and principles of safety. Richard and Diane are great and are very passionate about their business. We feel at ease and like... More
