Tour Details

On this exciting Barbados excursion, you'll be spending the day at Pirate's Cove on Carlisle Bay on the west side of Barbados, which offers calm turquoise waters ideal for swimming, snorkeling and other water activities.

At Pirate's Cove, you will be provided with a welcome drink, a beach chair and umbrella. The facility also has small lockers for rent, washrooms and showers. Although lunch is not included, there is a restaurant and bar where you may purchase food and additional drinks.

Your day also includes a glass bottom boat trip right from the beach to snorkel at a shipwreck and to swim with the turtles in Carlisle Bay. While wildlife sightings cannot be guaranteed, turtles are seen on most trips to Carlisle Bay on this snorkeling tour. The boat is equipped with a bar, bathrooms, and a fun waterslide. This Barbados tour includes snorkel gear and one drink on board. Return to port is by request, with options to stay 4 or 6 hours at the beach.

This tour was awesome. It was a short five minute drive to the beach where we jumped on board the boat and went to see the sea turtles and snorkelled around an old ship wreck. Yes we saw turtles! One came up for air about five feet away from me! It was amazing to see these beautiful turtles this closely. Loved the white sand and the beautiful blue, crystal clear, warm water. And the rum punch was good too!

This was our first excursion of our trip and did not disappoint! A bus took us to Pirate's Cove - an all inclusive spot with a beach, restaurant, bar, and swimming available. We had a bit of difficulty boarding the pontoon given waves and were overcrowded once onboard. Thankfully short trip to turtles, given rum punch on board (also drink ticket/person for later). We saw several turtles within hands reach, snorkeled two sunken ships, all in all about 75 mins or so before enjoying rest of day on land. Fulfilled our expectations, nothing fancy, but nicer pricier boats not worth it given short trip to snorkel spot. Would do again - friendly personnel.
