Barbados Turtle Swim Excursion Reviews
Awesome excursion, one of our best ever! Lots of fish and turtles to see. Snorkeling the shipwreck was very fun. Our tour guides, "Dude" and "Curly", were exceptionally good. They really went the extra mile to make sure everyone was happy. The beach excursion was very nice! Once again, Dude and Curly made the event special. While the wife worshiped the sun, I sat in the shade and read a book. Our hosts came over to me no less than 4 times, offering rum punch and conversation. Good music, good vibe, awesome time. Would highly recommend to anyone.
We did the turtle swim via a ship's excursion. The boat was okay, the actual swimming with the turtles was awesome and had we ended the trip there, they would get higher marks, but after the swim they took us 20 minutes out of the way to go to a beach. They took us to this desolate beach with nothing but an abandoned build site that was all broken down and graffiti everywhere. There was NOTHING there. No chairs, no bathrooms, no shade, not other people....nothing...and when we tried to go hide under a tree to get out of the blazing sun, we were told the trees drip a sap that will burn your skin. So we had to kill 45 minutes by sitting in the water just to keep from burning. If I had to do this again, I would book it through a local company and make sure you know which beach you're going to after the swim.
Incredible day. Just 6 of us on the boat. We swam with the turtles, snorkel ship wreck and spent hours on the beach and playing in the water. So glad we book independently because the cruise ship sponsored excursion showed up with about a 100 packed on the boat. Did I say there was six of us.
