Very few things can hold greater fascination than the mystery of a ship which has rested on the sea-bed for hundreds of years - especially, when they are identified as a treasure-galleon, pirateer or man-of-war. The waters around Barbados are teeming with such compelling historical interest. Over 200 ships have been wrecked here since 1666 when a large English warship became one of the first ever recorded victims. By and large, the majority of ships are wrecked during hurricanes and other great storms - often with disastrous proportions, such as 1694 when a hurricane sank 26 merchant ships in Carlisle Bay. Less frequent but more dramatic are occasions like the year 1716 when Captain Martel's pirate ship sank a sloop at the entrance to Carlisle Bay. The pirates themselves were then pursued by an English warship which eventually caught and sank them by cannon fire somewhere off the East Coast of the island. Pamir Bridge Barbados undoubtedly has the best collection of wrecks to dive in the Caribbean. Standing above all others, quite literally, and considered the ultimate wreck dive in Barbados, is the ghost-ship SS Stavronikita, a 365 foot long freighter which was sunk on purpose in 1978. She was so skillfully sunk that she lies upright, intact on a sandy bed with her keel resting at 130 feet. This impressive wreck needs 5 or 6 dives to see everything, as the Stav – as she is otherwise known – is so big and so deep that it limits bottom time. The buoy is tied to the forward mast, which comes within 20 feet of the surface. Most dive operators attach a reserve bottle to the rope in case a diver needs some extra air to finish their safety stop. The mast structure resembles a long legged giant and is encrusted with a variety of colourful sponges and a forest of hydroids – among them branching, feather and slender varieties. On the pre-dive chat you may be given the option of taking the deeper internal tour of the wreck, which starts at the prop at 130 feet, or the shallower option, still 95 feet, in the top deck area. For those of you that like the thrill of going deep inside a wreck, speak to the dive leader beforehand as he may be able to take you to the engine room if your group is small enough and experienced enough. There are some very tight holes to pass through to get there but when you see the beam of light shining through, it is truly a unique experience. Massive holes in the hull let in valuable light that penetrates the interior and pieces of hull are strewn on the sea bed below. Coombermere In the lower stern area the Stav is covered in encrusting sponges, gorgonias and black coral strands and the rudder and propeller are clearly visible. There is a large hole on the lower starboard side near the propeller where the deeper internal tour begins. Under the guidance of a dive leader the group is led up through a number of cabins, corridors and compartments to emerge in the cargo hold. There is an alternative dive route – through the upper deck cabins and hatches – and this dive only goes as deep as 100 feet, also ending in the forward cargo hold in front of the bridge. Unfortunately, the bridge is no longer accessible due to the fragile condition of this metal structure.
