Barbados Shipwreck Snorkel Excursion Reviews

Snorkel through multiple shipwrecks dating back through WWI and WWII. Covered in marine life, these wrecks are prime examples of reef diversity, and they rest only a few feet below the surface.
In Barbados we went snorkeling over shipwrecks and saw sea turtles and stingrays as well.

We booked with Viator and Glory Tours. They had a bit of a communication error related to when the tour was to start, and then wanted to hold us at the port until the last couple off of the late cruise ship arrived. We got our "included" drink in the way to the beach chairs before snorkeling, which wasn't really what I had in mind. The snorkeling tour was fantastic. They did a great job and we got some fun time with the turtles and the shipwreck. They also did a good job with my husband as his snorkel wasn't working right. They managed to calm him down and get him comfy without his snorkel. Once we returned, the beach was perfectly lovely but my husband and I discovered that he and are not beach-sitters. We headed back via cab at 1:30. Our cab driver told the Glory Tours people that we were headed back, but apparently they didn't relay the message to our driver and he was looking for us. Read Less

After the 4x4 tour, we went on a small boat to the Shipwreck Snorkel which was some of the better snorkeling because of the crystal clear waters, and the tour guides. Read Less

BEST EXCURSION EVER. We booked "PERFECT PAIR: BEACH DAY AND TURTLE SWIM" through Shoretrips.com. I was with someone that had a bad snorkeling experience two days prior so I was worried, but this experience changed everything. Trust me that the beach area looks cramped on the outside, but once you walk through the building to the back, it turns into the most perfect beach with little palm trees and beautiful water. Plenty of shade, free drinks, if you want an extra wave runner experience, then bring some cash because they have plenty there. The snorkeling part was phenomenal. Our guide hand fed a huge stingray. We actually had a turtle swimming between us - so close that I had to work to back away from it several times because I thought (incorrectly) that you weren't supposed to touch them. The guide noticed how I behaved and asked if I was scared of them - so I know that he was definitely paying attention to the tour participants. The second stop was to a ship wreck. Amazing. We were right on top of it and it was so close that our guide actually held his breath and swam down into the hull and out of a second hull opening. I've never seen a ship wreck so close and in water so clear. Fish were everywhere. Free drinks onboard for the trip back. Wonderful crew. Read Less

A the fish in one place! We went to two shipwrecks, both are accessible from the beach with a swim. Our captain gave us drinks and about 20 minutes on the beach before we returned to the ship.

In Barbados we did the turtle and shipwreck snorkel. We saw the rear end of a turtle as we got in the water, and that was it as far as turtles. Can’t control wildlife, but at least the shipwreck was interesting to see. The crew on the boat tour we used was some of the best we ever had. Very friendly, talkative, and fun. We even skipped the beach part of the excursion to sit on board, drink delicious rum punch, and talk about their country. Read Less

FANTASTIC TRIP. Don't book thru Carnival. It may be about $6 cheaper, but doesnt include food. Search elsewhere for it and it will include the buffet lunch, which is $15 extra. Well worth it.

It's not a shipwreck.

It's not a shipwreck. It's a sunken boat. It hasn't been there long enough to develop any kind of a colony. It's nothing. But it's a small part of this excursion, enjoy the turtles and the fish!
