Today we went diving with our new friends Richard and Diane from Lumbadive in Carriacou, Grenada. They are a class act from start to finish. The highlight for us is that they are the first dive company to have a real solution to having our kids in tow. Richard immediately suggested that we bring them on the dive and let them go snorkeling while he and the boat captain kept an eye on them. They proved to be amazingly kid and family friendly.
Seaview was our first dive site. It features a relatively low depth wraparound reef with some excellent opportunities to see interesting seafloor life and an inner trench with some other fun critters. We did not experience a significant current at this site which allowed the kids to snorkel above where they tried to catch our bubbles. The visibility was exceptional on this day according to Richard.
Our second dive site was Sister’s Rock. We had planned to go to Paradise Hill, but had to nix it on account of an unusual current. There was still a fairly strong current at Sister’s Rock, but we rode it from one side to the other where we were sheltered by the island and still had a great time. Richard took the kids snorkeling here as well and he was surprised at how well they were able to get around in the surface current given their size.
