I just spent a month in Carriacou and dove with Deefer Diving several times a week, having a wonderful and extensive experience. Deefer accommodates divers of all skill levels. Beginner divers who are doing an introductory discover dive or divers who pursue a full certification program are treated with very calm, helpful encouragement. The instructors are 100% attentive and are never judgmental. Each diver learns and develops at their own pace with constant reassuring support. Divers with more experience are also given every opportunity to explore and enjoy. Skills available include rebreather techniques, advanced buoyancy, fish identification and photography. Safety is always paramount, allowing divers to enjoy without fear. There is always an atmosphere of relaxed and often humorous fun. Also Deefer provides an amazing service of carrying the heavy tanks to and from the boat as well as setting up BCDs and regulators, so the divers never need to get stressed out, while the large rental inventory is maintained with great care. The instructors are very knowledgeable about dozens of local dive spots and conduct tours including sunken wrecks, incredible reefs and a plethora of flora and fauna including moray eels, turtles, nurse sharks, eagle rays, lobsters, lion fish and octopus. Some of the wildlife is hard to spot to people unfamiliar with the terrain, but the instructors are incredibly helpful in pointing out the most camouflaged of creatures. The shop is always well maintained and clean. Facilities are provided for rinsing and drying all equipment as well as showers for salty divers. The shop also offers sale of masks, snorkels, t-shirts, books and jewelry. A full time office accountant is always available to provide helpful and cheerful scheduling and billing services as well as advice about local accommodations, transportation and restaurants. I could not imagine any dive shop that could provide a more comprehensive, fun experience! Thank you to Alex, Gary and a wonderful staff!

We had a 10 dive package booked with Deefer Diving. We were there just after the start of the real global panic set in over Coronavirus. DD were our local rep for our travel arrangements as well and in this (and every other) respect they were absolutely faultless. the owners Gary and Alex are very much hands on, and Alex was our dive leader most days. She is really keen on fish ID as am I, so she was more than happy after the dives to sit down with me and go through the fish books to ID what we'd seen. I know I'm a nerd but I don't care. The whole of the team were great. Everyone on the dive boat was brilliant. They looked after us really well, getting all the tanks onto the boat and changing your tanks between dives. The dive boat is a catamaran and nice and stable, with a good amount of room to manoeuvre about on board. The dive sites are fabulous and The Sisters is apparently one of the best in the world. Karen in the office really looked after us and was on the ball the whole time we were there as regards any travel issues. Within hours of us arriving on Carriacou we had been to to get ready to leave again. But happily we didn't have to go. We got 8 of our dives in, before getting a knock on our door at about 9.30pm on day 5 from Gary to tell us that we had to pack and be ready to get the ferry at 6am the next morning to go back to Grenada. The Govt of Grenada was changing their travel restrictions and were closing down. DD arranged a taxi for the morning and a place for us to stay on Grenada for 2 days before our flight home, which was the last flight out before the borders closed. We rented some kit for our dives and it was all in excellent condition. Such a shame we missed our last days diving, but given we nearly missed it all, we were delighted with what we had. I would thoroughly recommend DD.

Thank you so much for this review Hazel, and sorry we never got the chance to take you on those last dives and bid you a proper 'safe travels' back to the UK. It did get a little bit frantic here at the last moment, but I and the team are happy that you managed to get that last flight home safely. We'll look forward to welcoming you back to Carriacou once this is all over, and we can get those dives in that we talked about too....

My wife and I had a lovely time diving in Carriacou with Deefer Diving. We did 3 days of diving plus a night dive. The crew was very friendly and helpful and the other divers were a pleasure to meet. We saw sea turtles, nurse sharks, eagle rays, an octopus, and much more. The reefs were colorful with lots to explore. Hope to come back soon!

I received my Padi certification through Deefer Diving and could not have scripted a more wonderful experience if I tried! Alex and Gary, along with the entire Deefer Diving team are professional, extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic about diving and the preservation of our underwater eco system. I would highly recommend Deefer Diving to any and all divers, from beginners to the advanced. You will not be disappointed!
