Years of neglect and abuse to the waters surrounding the island have taken their toll on the underwater eco-system of Barbados. But thanks to local dive shops, the reefs are making a comeback due to a marine park and a permanent mooring system. Even with these new implementations, don't expect caves and blossoming reefs. These tend to lie flat along the ocean floor. Extensive marine life isn't plentiful with the exception of seahorses and turtles, but there are a number of wrecks to hold a diver's attention. Most notable are the Stavronikita freighter which has budding black coral, and the Pamir in shallow waters near Mullins Bay.
