Ultimate Shipwreck Snorkel
You will be transferred from the cruise pier to downtown Bridgetown. After filling out the required paperwork, you will have a few minutes of free time to use the restrooms or just relax. Then you'll board your boat and head out from Bridgetown to explore the wonderful underwater world of Barbados.
Depending on the sea conditions and weather that day, your captain will take you to the best snorkeling sites for that day. Often the first stop on this Barbados excursion is to view sea turtles in their natural habitat. Here you will snorkel for approximately 25 minutes.
Then motor to Carlisle Bay Marine Park, a sheltered area not far from the Bridgetown Harbor, where you will have the opportunity to snorkel over one of the five shipwrecks located here. You will also see a great diversity of brilliantly colored marine life including sea horses, rays, barracudas, octopus, reef squid, mackerel, or moray eels. After snorkeling, local beer and rum punch will be served. The total time on the boat is approximately 90 minutes.
After the boat portion of your tour, you will enjoy a Barbadian barbecue buffet lunch with an assortment of dishes such as macaroni pie, rice and peas, salads, fish, chicken, beef stew, along with refreshing drinks including tasty rum punch, beer, house rum, vodka and gin, soft drinks, and juices. Then you will have free time in downtown to shop or explore or just relax on the beach with a drink in hand. At the end of the tour, you will be transported back to the cruise pier.

The water was amazing. One of our party freaked out due to not being able to touch the bottom. Sort of sad, but now we know. The buffet was good and drinks were included so we got our money's worth. This location is very close to the terminal and we saw others who were on our boat, but the didn't get all the bells and whistles we did.

The snorkel over the wreck was exciting. The snorkel boat was clean, spacious and well equipped and the two man crew was friendly and efficient. The tour ran on time.

Snorkeling was good with only a short boat ride to destination; lots of fish and sea turtles. Lunch with steel band music was great. Beach club afternoon was best on our trip.

Calm waters to snorkel, but too many people from other trips all in the same location. Good viewing for beginners but wouldn't quite call it Ultimate. Staff was very accommodating and friendly.

All in all, a great adventure. Some minor confusion at the start, but Olga came through! Swimming to see the wrecks was fastenating, but the turtles stole the show! Rinaldo helped my friends that had trouble with health problems by taking shots with their GoPro. The crew were first rate! A must see!
