Join us on an exciting day in Barbados filled with seeing all the important sight and highlights. Followed by lunch and a guided snorkel or swim with the famed sea turtles at Carlisle Bay!

Your meeting point for this fun day is just outside your Barbados cruise ship terminal where your friendly, English speaking guide will be waiting for you. After you get settled in the transportation, your guide will go over the plan and route for the day. Along the way, they will also be filling you in on the history of the island, local history and other interesting information.

You will start off your exploration and discover of Barbados by traveling over to the East Coast of the island. Our first stop will be Cherry Tree Hill with its breathtaking views of the East Coast. The eastern coast is the windward side of the island that has some spectacular rocky formations.

From there you will make your way to Morgan Lewis Windmill. The windmill is on the top 100 endangered historical sites in the world. It is one of only two working sugar mills in the world. It is a very historical structure and is now preserved.

As you continue down the coastline, you will travel through Cattlewash and make a stop in Bathsheba. Both are known for their wild and rocky shorelines. Bathsheba is a small fishing village that is popular with surfers due to the waves at the "Soup Bowl". The rocks out in the water offer some great photo opportunities.

Your next stop will be St, John's Church, one of the oldest churches on the island which is set on a cliff and offers some spectacular views. This Gothic church is one of the oldest on the island. From here, you will journey around to the Garrison Historic area. This is an area full of old military defense stations, barracks and cannons on the island.

For the second part of your day your guide will take you to Carlisle Bay and Harbor Lights Beach. You will have time to purchase a snack or lunch and cold drink if you would like. You will head out on a boat to swim and snorkel with the sea turtles! The local green and hawksbill sea turtles are totally in the open sea, not in cages or pens. The bay is a favorite swimming area for them - the amount you see are up to Mother Nature. You will get to swim along side and view these slow moving, docile creatures up close. Please respect their space and do not touch. The time you will spend snorkeling and swimming is approximately 30-45 minutes.

When you return to the shore you will have a mini beach break. You will be welcomed with a complimentary drink - rum punch, fruit punch or soft drink. During your stay at Carlisle Bay, you will be provided with a beach lounger and umbrella. You will also have use of their facilities including restrooms and freshwater showers. Please be sure to wear your swimsuits and bring a beach towel for this excursion.

This excursion is also offered without the swimming with the turtles as Barbados Bajan Paradise Sightseeing and Carlisle Beach Excursion.

At the end of your excursion time, your air conditioned transportation will take you back to your Barbados cruise pier terminal.

Wow and wow again
     5/5 Visited in January 2017

What views! for some reason, we were just the two of us on the tour, Stephen gave us a wonderful private tour, stopped for pictures, had all the answers for us.. Dates, history, agriculture...and then some more. He even call the restaurant ahead so we could have a nice local meal. He left us at the beach and promised to pick us up again to bring us back to the ship. The stop for the sea turtle was good: a tourist trap, but when you see what you wanted to see it is all right. And turtles we saw.. At the end, sure enough our guide Stephen was there for the last leg of the excursion. It was so beautiful and so informative that we want to come back to Barbados, longer than just a stop from the boat. We were sold.

Awesome Sight Seeing
     4/5 Visited in April 2014

The sight seeing and snorkeling were fantastic. The best part was seeing the look on my kids faces when they saw their first turtles in the water. Priceless to say the least!! We had a wonderful time and fun at the beach. The guides were great. This is the way to spend a vacation day in Barbados. Thank you Shore excursioneer.
