Without doubt the 'One to do' wreck in Barbados, its pretty big and 2 dives would be best, there is also a small reef if you go East when done.

To be honest the general diving in Barbados is nice but not challenging. Most operators take you to the shallow reefs and purposely sunken wrecks on the west coast. However, ask nicely and they will take you to the Stav!. Decent sized wreck with lots...More
