Barbados Shore Excursion: Carlisle Bay Turtle and Shipwreck Adventure

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    When your cruise ship docks in port, make your way to the port gates and meet your guide. In a comfortable tour vehicle, you'll travel to Carlisle Bay, home to the idyllic Copacabana Barbados beach.

    Get set up with your lounge chair and umbrella, yours to use for the day. Sip a provided drink and enjoy the scenery, then head out on the included snorkeling cruise. Stop at a natural habitat for local sea turtles and a local shipwreck to explore the underwater world using the provided mask and snorkel.

    Restrooms, freshwater showers, and a beach bar are available on site. You can also choose a beach-only option (no snorkeling cruise) at checkout.

    At the end of the day, enjoy convenient transportation back to the cruise port.

    When we were out on the water with other tour groups it was really obvious that our guides were the most experienced and most prepared. This was a fantastic tour for anyone really interested in snorkeling in Carlisle Bay.

    We enjoyed the snorkeling. It does have a number of people, but we've been on other snorkel excursions with a lot more people where the excursions were very rushed. This excursion didn't feel rushed at all - they encouraged you to take your time. For example, at the shipwreck
