Hop on our shuttle and take a short drive through the Capital of Bridgetown to our dock. Board our vessel Tranquility with ease and join us on our 1.5 hour Turtle & Shipwreck adventure in Carlisle Bay.
Carlisle Bay boasts calm turquoise waters lapping on the soft white sand. Under the surface of the sea Carlisle Bay comes alive with vibrant tropical fish in abundance, sea horses, sea turtles, octopus, rays, and much more! This unique array of marine life is due in part to the six different ship wrecks in the water as shallow as 12ft.
After the snorkel excursion we will take you to Savvy on the Bay on Carlisle Bay where you will be provided with a beach lounger, umbrella and a welcome drink drink. Soak in the sea, or lay on your beach lounger and enjoy the sunshine. Its the perfect way to spend a day in Barbados

The snorkel and beach time very nice w personal escort to Tranquility snorkel and Harbour lights. We were shown where and what we could do and asked when we would like pickup. Our tour guide Calvin Bryan was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and at the end of the trip was most helpful as we left a cell phone in the vehicle. We called the local number by a kind store operator and she got in touch w the agency. Within an hour we had the phone. What a relief! Definitely would Reccomended this tour.
Another perfect excursion with VIATOR

Swimming with stingray

Booked snorkeling and swimming with turtles, trip from the cruise ship. We were picked up outside port and transfered to the boat. Once all passengers were inboard we were away. The 2 young lads were funny and informative. Got to our 1st stop and we all got our snorkeling gear and git into the beautiful clear water. We were swimming with stingrays and did see a turtle..... After swimming with the fish, we then boarded the boat to go to the shipwreck. I took an underwater camera so got some smashing shots. Mario one of the lads took my camera deep to the shipwreck. Fabulous day, fabulous hosts. I loved it
The guides were very...

The guides were very informative and happy to help out! We took a morning excursion as did so many other people. I would try to book an afternoon tour next time
OK experience

I did enjoy the snorkeling, but they do not provide fins, and it was a very congested area where we snorkeled. The operators were very helpful and accommodating, and we did get to see many turtles and the shipwreck.
It was ok, but way too crowded.
Christopher_L, 11-04-2022
There were lots of people snorkeling and it was hard not to run into each other. Way too crowded with several businesses going to one spot. We did however see turtles which was nice. They feed them to keep them around. Overall a good experience, but I would rather find one less crowded.
Nice staff, saw turtles
Kelly_B, 09-04-2022
The staff and crew were very nice, but overall I would book a different tour next time. The information on the tour provider that was on my tickets was not the same tour provider who showed up, leading to confusion at the beginning. The van was entirely too small for the passengers. There needs to be some sort of physical fitness check at the start of the excursion, since some the passengers struggled with parts of the excursion. The beach was overcrowded and clearly a tourist destination. Passengers convened from different excursions when it came time to get on the boat, and we just sat there waiting. The stop at the turtle site were too short, but we did see turtles. The shipwreck was fun to see. Adult beverages (for purchase would be fine) on the boat would have been very appreciated. The staff were nice and the boat was clean, but next time I'd pick a different excursion.
