Swimming With The Turtles

more Barbados things to do

Come swim with the turtles in Barbados!

Are you feeling adventurous? Do you want to explore Barbados from another perspective? Perhaps you wish to see Barbados the way a hawksbill or leatherback turtle sees this tropical paradise?

Look no further. Come join us here in beautiful Barbados where there's a wide range of cruises and tours that take you swimming with the turtles.

Most turtle tours are on catamarans which provide lunch, masks and snorkels. It's a great day out - sailing down the beautiful coastline, a delicious lunch, rum punches and other drinks, and of course seeing the magnificent turtles and snorkeling in the Caribbean sea. Some tours include stops at the beach and snorkeling over shipwrecks.

Another amazing experience is a sunset cruise which heads out in the early afternoon - swim with turtles then relax with cocktail in hand as the sun sets.

If you're a people person, choose one of the larger catamarans. There are smaller catamarans for those who prefer a more intimate experience.If you're visiting by cruise ship, choose one of the shorter cruises (say 3 hours) that starts earlier in the day so you don't feel rushed and still have time to shop or explore the island.

Alternatively you can join a glass-bottom boat cruise for a quick ride out to the turtles and shipwrecks!

Another fun option is a kayaking tour which takes you around Carlisle Bay, gliding over shipwrecks in the clear waters below & spotting green and hawksbill turtles.

Have a look below at some of the turtle cruises and tours available.
