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 pontoon boat trip right from the beach to snorkel at a shipwreck and to swim with the turtles in Carlisle Bay. 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 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.
My sister and I had a wonderful time on this excursion. Our guide for the snorkeling was wonderful and very knowledgeable about the fish and turtles. The beach was beautiful and the staff was really nice. Would totally recommend this excursion

We had great guides (Blondie and Akim, I believe) that made the experience fun. Beach was amazing and the local food at the buffet was delicious! Highly recommend all around!

We were picked up and taken to the beach which was 2 minutes from the ship. Got on a little boat and we were taken to swim with the turtles. Amazing. Very clear water. Got snorkel gear and swam with turtles and beautiful little fish. Great experience! After an hour they took us back to the beach. There was music playing and a barbeque on the beach where you could buy lunch. I stayed in the water most of the time. We dug up lots of sand dollars and large conchs. This was one of the best tours I have ever taken. I highly recommend it!
