HIGHTIDE Watersports was established in 1993 by Willie Hewitt and is located at the prestigious Coral Reef Club. The business is now managed by Gavin Smith and Martyn Norsworthy. By providing quality service to its guests, HIGHTIDE Watersports has become the most recognizable name in Barbados Scuba Diving. We believe that no other dive shop can offer and deliver better service, nicer people, or safer procedures.

HIGHTIDE Watersports is the only Beautiful Oceans Science Instructor Center in Barbados.

HIGHTIDE is committed to providing divers with the kind of professionalism and personal attention they expect from a first-rate dive operation. All of our instructors and dive masters are certified by PADI, adhere to the latest standards in safety, and are trained in First Aid and CPR. Plus we believe in no-hassle diving for our guests. We will set up your equipment, load it on our boat, and after your dive we will wash and stow your equipment. You need only to enjoy your dive and your holiday!

We at HIGHTIDE Watersports are extremely sensitive to the natural marine environment and expect the same of divers in our care. We are active in creating mooring buoys for all to use on many of the dive sites we visit. Our staff is respectful of the reef environment and strive to instill this respect in all the new divers we introduce to the underwater world.

We are the official headquarter dive centre assisting with the Barbados Sea Turtle Project. Our Guests, Our Team and Marine Biologists help these Hawkbill Turtles to survive. A year-round program (Tues, Thurs & Sat). Non-divers are welcome to join in. This is part of the Padi Project Aware
