A first diving experience for 3 of us and I have to say Phillip was excellent, I am 56 and was very nervous as I get panic attacks and claustrophobia. Phillip was very patient with me and I successfully completed the DSD and managed to fill mask with water and did a successful regulator retrieval twice.

I came down to Barbados to complete my open water certification dives. Phillip is a fantastic instructor - experienced, encouraging and sensitive to each diver's skills and needs. And he's a pretty cool dude. I learned a lot and became a confident diver thanks to Reefers and Wreckers. Thanks, Phillip!

Have dived with Phillip and his crew for many years. Things may look a little chaotic, but the diving is run efficiently and is great fun. Hope they get their dive boat fixed before too long!

Very helpful and great dives on wrecks for those with some experience. Good for beginners also. Philip was especially patient, and helpful at all times and deserves a mention. Based in Speightstown and working out of Port St.Charles would highly recommend this dive school and its equipment.

As a frequent visitor to Barbados and keen diver, Reefers and Wreckers are one of the two dive centres on the island that I would recommend for both beginners and more advanced divers. Philip generally dives the reefs and wrecks that are found at the Northern end of the West Coast. Am thinking of doing my DM; wouldn't hesitate to... More

Just back from beautiful Barbados, and wanted to write and recommend my new friends at Reefers and Wreckers! Philip, in particular, is literally the most laid-back man in the world, taking my son (aged 17) through his open water dives to complete his Padi course and me out to some interesting dives. My son had trouble equalising, but Phil was... More

We dived with Phillip and his team for five days. The first day was off a fishing boat due to his boat being in for service, but it was all safe and sound. The next three days we shore dived and Phillip made sure we got different sites for each dive. The last day he got us down to Bridgetown... More

We've done this before. Back roll entry, pulled in from the side... The regular dive boat is still out being fixed. Hope it is back soon. If you are a relaxed type who is on Bajan time, good op. They didn't leave the shop until after 10 and we got back 2:30 with a 2 tank dive. (125USD) Good surface... More

I have just finished my last dive with Phillip who is the dive instructor at Reefers & Wreckers and it was a very pleasant experience to have dived with him. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was first class. I would also like to say a big thank you to Haydon who made sure that my dive gear was... More
