Hazell’s Water World Inc. (Diver Supply Barbados) is the Diving Equipment Specialist!
It was the love and passion for diving that inspired John and Ken Hazell to create Hazell’s Water World. They realised there was a need in Barbados for a complete divers’ supply centre to cater to dive shops, as well as to local and visiting divers and snorkelers.
Hazell’s Water World was created in the spring of 1990 by the son and father team, who have more than sixty years experience between them. John Hazell is a Padi instructor who has been diving since the mid-1970’s, doing so in his off-time with Barbados’ dive club, the Barbados Divers Association or “BADASS’n”. John would be happy to chat with you about some of his favourite dive sites: Mount Charlie, HighWire, Castle Bank, Pieces of Eight, Carlisle Bay, Bright Ledge and Maycocks. His diving experience extends as far west in the Caribbean as Belize and Mexico, and as far east as Tobago, including the stunning Grenadines. He has also dived extensively in British Columbia, Canada.
As the authorised dealer on the island for Tusa and Mares diving equipment, Hazell’s Water World strongly believes customers should be able to see, feel and even try on equipment before they buy it. Hazell’s offers great advice and tailor-made recommendations, because to them ‘not one diver is the same’. There are manufacturer warranties on all in-store sales and a discount on servicing of equipment originally purchased from Hazell’s. The company also supplies snorkel gear and fish identification cards to local cruise operators, as well as diving equipment to Barbados’ diveshops.
