Harrisons Cave and Beach Day
While this beautiful island is notably famed for its fantastic beaches, Barbados offers so much more! Include two of the most popular activities on this tour, journey inside Harrisons Cave and relax on one of the island's amazing beaches.
Your journey begins as you travel to Harrisons Cave, an active cave system located in the heart of Barbados. Measuring 2.3 km long with a cave height of 15 meters. This cave is one of the island's premier attractions, board an electric tram for an otherworldly ride through winding tunnels as you are driven through the interior. Unearth this adventure as your knowledgeable guide takes you on a tour where you will hear the rushing streams and witness the calm glassy pools as you retrace the steps the early explorers experienced. View beautiful pools, waterfalls and more as you make your way to the 15m high Great Hall, the cave's largest cavern. Observe stunning stalagmites and stalactites at every turn that are still growing to this day thanks to a continuous supply of water.
After emerging from under-ground you will next make your way to Copacabana on Carlisle Bay on the west side of Barbados. This popular beach boasts the whitest sand on the island as well as 6 shipwrecks just offshore. You will be greeted with a welcome drink and escorted to your reserved lounger and beach umbrella for some relaxation and fun under the sun. Belly up to the bar for a cold glass of pirate's brew or a juicy pirate burger then enjoy a refreshing swim in the crystal-clear waters (food is at guest's expense). You can also elect to take a snorkel cruise to admire the turtles, starfish, rays and other marine life or stay on land and pick up a souvenir or two at the local craft stalls.

This excursion was fun and I learned a few things to about caves
An amazing tour, was worried about booking an excursion not offered by the Cruise line but they understand you need to get back to the ship on time and work with you. Some of the people on our excursion had an itinerary change and needed an to be back an hour earlier and they accommodated that while, also not taking away from the rest of us. The caves were amazing to explore and Pirate's Beach was amazing, the water was nice and blue. Was able to unwind and relax!

Even though we have caverns where we live, we wanted to experience the "ride through the cave"! Our van driver was on time & easy to locate. He got us to Harrisons cave promptly & we went right in with no waiting! We enjoyed riding through the cave & photographing the scenery. Note: sit on the left side facing forward & not in the back 2 rows of seats for the best views. After the cave we were taken to Copacabana Beach where our lounge chairs, umbrella & the best rum punch were waiting for us to enjoy. Our driver had arranged for another driver to come back for us. He was right on time & we were returned to the port with plenty of time before "all aboard". It was a great day!

Harrison's Cave has a pretty interesting history and is very nice to see, but if you've ever been to Luray Caverns in VA. they are kind of minor! It's always nice to spend time with natives of the islands and see how proud they are of their homelands! We decided to skip the beach portion of the tour!
