Visited Hazel last to buy some dive gear as I am starting out. John gave us excellent service. The advice was brilliant. I would recommend the shop to anyone. Thank you.

Joseph delivered a battery for a dive computer on his way home, saving us the drive to Bridgetown. The next day, we needed a high pressure hose replaced on my regulator. Joseph fitted that... More

Pretty much the only dive shop on the island to buy things at. Owner is friendly, knowledgeable, helpful. Decent selection of gear and you will definitely be able to get what you need if you forgot or lost something.

Bought a good snorkel and mask here, probably not the cheapest around, but they took the time to make sure it was the right size and how to care for it. Could have had duty free if I had my passport.
