Phil is the man on the osland

Best dive company I've ever been diving with. Forget the rest. These guys are the best! They treat customers like Kings and Queens.

We are both instructors with over 2000 dives but due to lack of opportunities had not dived since 2015. We needed to get back into it. Phil came to our hotel to give us a free check out in the pool, something which was well appreciated as other dive outfits wanted to charge us $100 for a check out dive... More

Did 14 dives over 3 weeks in Jan 2017. I am AOW with 250+ dives. At first I was unsure about this set up. It seemed far too lax. Appointed times were never kept and on my first dive I was given a tank with only 110 bar. A novice may have accepted this. Dive boat was small and underpowered... More

I have gone diving with Phillip at Reefers and Wreckers for three years now. I have always had a really great experience with him. He is so chilled and relaxing and reassuring to dive with. He really cares about his divers and takes very good care of them - and makes absolutely sure that the dive works for them, whoever... More

Talk about a guy who will bend over backwards for the divers. There was an older couple there who really had no business diving but Phil made it a good experience for them. We didn't want to see a wreck so he took asked us the kind of thing we wanted to see and changed things up to accommodate. Everyone... More

A first diving experience for 3 of us and I have to say Phillip was excellent, I am 56 and was very nervous as I get panic attacks and claustrophobia. Phillip was very patient with me and I successfully completed the DSD and managed to fill mask with water and did a successful regulator retrieval twice.

All The dives are safe and well executed and Phillip assess all the divers and plans dives to... More

I came down to Barbados to complete my open water certification dives. Phillip is a fantastic instructor - experienced, encouraging and sensitive to each diver's skills and needs. And he's a pretty cool dude. I learned a lot and became a confident diver thanks to Reefers and Wreckers. Thanks, Phillip!

Have dived with Phillip and his crew for many years. Things may look a little chaotic, but the diving is run efficiently and is great fun. Hope they get their dive boat fixed before too long!

Very helpful and great dives on wrecks for those with some experience. Good for beginners also. Philip was especially patient, and helpful at all times and deserves a mention. Based in Speightstown and working out of Port St.Charles would highly recommend this dive school and its equipment.
