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.

The boat took us about two miles out. It was fun seeing an actual live shipwreck. Our guide was in the water with us. Since I'm not a great swimmer and it was my first time snokerling in deep waters, my guide teteered me to a rope, so I felt completely safe swimming along with my life vest. Read Less

We rented a taxi for a trip to the Boatyard. There were a line of taxis right as you got off the boat with Taxi drivers fighting over cruise passengers to fill their taxi’s Instead of filling one and then going to the next driver they were fighting over us. We ended up not waiting that long, but the people in the back of our bus had been there a while and were furious. We arrived at the Boatyard late, We were informed that all the umbrellas were taken so we would have to just sit out on the beach, we found a little area in the shade under the pier so we wouldn’t be in the sun. Locals wanting us to rent a boat from them approached immediately. They were trying to sell us a boat ride to swim with the turtles for $20 per person and were very aggressive. We told this one guy we wanted to wait and see what everyone elses prices were. Victor then approached and offered to put us on a double decker party boat with a slide off the back and would take us to the turtles to swim and then to a shipwreck that we could snorkel and only charge us $15pp. He was very nice and when we decided to go with him we were approached by the first guy who never gave us his name and he started arguing about us not going with him. He was extremely aggressive and my daughter got into an argument with him when he would not leave when she asked. He began to threaten to have us thrown out of “his country”. Victor quietly retreated and called the local police because this man apparently didn’t have a license to be there and was scaring off all the tourists. We were ushered onto the boat by Victor and took all of our belongings so we would not have to worry about anything. The boat was great. They had people on board from our boat, I don't know if they booked through the cruise ship or not. They took us out just a little from the beach and fed the turtles and then to a ship that we could snorkel and provided us rum punch or beer to drink and snorkel equipment. It was well worth the $15 per person but if you are really thrifty, you CAN swim out to the point and snorkel with your own equipment. We were not that far out. I wish I could remember the name of the boat. There were inflatables at the BoatYard which we didn’t rent, a huge peer with a swing that you could swing off of into the ocean. The bathrooms were nice, we didn't eat at the restaurant but heard from those that did that it was good. Read Less

The 4x4 was disappointing..it was just a long tour of the island on tarred road.
The 4x4 was disappointing..it was just a long tour of the island on tarred road. The shipwreck snorkel was great and the speedboat to the site was exciting. Not enough time on the beach.

We found Black Pearl Party Cruises online and booked an 11-3 voyage aboard the Jolly Roger. We were supposed to have two snorkel stops, one with turtles and one over a sunken ship but because the water on the north side of the island was choppy, the turtle potion was not possible on that day. The trip included booze, soft drinks and lunch. We really enjoyed the ride and the opportunity to "walk the plank" and use the rope swing. The food was great and he drinks were stiff. Snorkeling over a real ship wreck was super cool and our kids really enjoyed that experience. Read Less

This was all a part of one package, sea turtles and shipwreck snorkeling. The snorkeling was fantastic, however we only had about 20 minutes at the wreck, far to short of a time. We then were taken to a beach for about an hour where we were supplied unlimited rum punch. The beach was beautiful, however we would have rather spent more time snorkeling. Read Less
