This was a 4.5 hour tour that was too include snorkeling with turtles and sailing. We motored along at about 2 knots for the bulk of the trip. We spent very little time in the water snorkeling and I was the only person the find or see a turtle. This could have been a 2 hour tour and we would have done as much. The operator is dragging their feet to make the tour seem grander. Read Less

Next stop was to swim with turtles. And they came. Before we got into the water one of them came up to breathe. Such a sight. We saw 3-4 turtles and also other fish. Great experience. Last stop was beach stop. All in all a great experience. Could we have done it ourselves? Yes, it was very close to the ship, but this was our first time on Barbados. Next time we will just walk to the beach ourselves. Read Less

was taken off shore (a few hundred meters) and swam above a shipwreck and then taken to swim with the turtles. Saw a few small ones at the bottom but still was a great experience.

Tiami 5 star tours always does well. The snorkeling is fun, the beach break is nice, and the food is good. Have done this one before and can recommend it highly. Lovely big catamaran is comfortable, crew are excellent.

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

A combo turtle/snorkel/beach tour was enjoyed, but only saw 2 turtles and didn't get to swim near them! Probably seasonal, so we should have researched a bit more. Nevertheless, enjoyed the snorkeling and beach portions of the tour.

We took the Tiami 5 star catamaran cruise and turtle swim/snorkel event. First class operation by the crew and well worth the price.

We did see a few turtles, which was neat, and got a nice tour of the island, but the snorkeling didn't have much else. We may be spoiled from seeing so many turtles on a trip to Hawaii that this was just "meh."

Code: BBC3, we all had a terrific time. We saw many sea adult sea turtles (a couple times they even swam up next to me and bumped into me). The only down side was several boats dropped passengers and most of us ended up congregated in 1 location. It got so crowded I was accidentally kicked several times. I still think this was an excellent outing! Read Less

Outstanding all around. We booked online and the guide met us outside the port exactly where he said he'd be waiting. Jumped into a van and got to the boat - which was a powerful beast. It got us to the turtles well before the cruise ship tours and gave us some nice solo time with the turtles before the masses arrived and made snorkeling with the turtles nearly impossible. Once the crowds arrived, we were off to a shipwreck site to snorkel around an old tugboat. Kind of creepy, but again, we were one step ahead of the cruise ship tours and had the place largely to ourselves. Read Less
