Carriacou: A place that feels like home right away

By Nora Valdés

Gary writes about his favourite dive at Layer Cake, down among the small cays to the South of Carriacou. This one is an exciting fast drift dive, for experienced divers only – the kind of dive that puts a big grin on your face!

By Nora Valdés

Affectionately referred to as ‘Le Jettoi’ by our team (thanks, Gary!), the Hillsborough Jetty is a magical place for divers. Easily accessed by a short swim from the beach outside the dive shop and filled with oodles of fish and wonderful creatures, Le Jettoi is a favourite for all of us.

A Day in the Life….. of a Dive Shop Owner

By Gary Ward

Is this the role that I expected when I started my scuba career? Probably not. I love my job and I love the people around me. I recognize that I run a small business in the tourism service industry and the requirements of a small business do not change regardless of where you are in the world. In that regard I love what I do and doing it here in Carriacou.

By Alex Ward

Tropical Hill is one of our staff’s favourite dives. Think of the classic image of a mountain – big peak, little peak? – now imagine it underwater, covered with wonderful marine life! Excellent visibility and a beautiful backdrop make this site a favourite for photographers.
