This is a great spot close to the cruise port. We went on a private tour of Barbados with James Taxi (happiesttours@gmail.com). He brought us here after touring the island, and arranged for a boat to take us (myself, my husband and four young kids) out to see the turtles and shipwreck. Afterwards, we hung out on the beach and... More

When we arrived at the spot where we would swim with turtles there were at least 5 other tours there. The water was so crowded with people it was a joke. We saw maybe two turtles (it could have been one we saw twice...). The snorkeling over "shipwrecks" (boats they sunk a few years ago for tourists) was pretty good,... More

We did this as a shore excursion during a cruise. We saw turtles while snorkeling and saw shipwreck items, then stopped at a beach. The staff really cared about the turtles and made sure everyone paid attention to the rules. It was a lot of fun to see them in the open ocean.

Snorkeling and swimming with the turtles was a wonderful experience.Got to see them up close.There were a lot of fishes and coral too! The sea was turquoise blue and clear and it was well worth it to benture out in this wide open ocean at 50 ft deep!

The catamaran sail was wonderful, the snorkling fun and the crew member that lead it was informative, friendly and fun. After snorkling they took us to a public beach for a buffet lunch and more swimming and relaxing. An excellent way to spend a day!

Friendly staff, great easy going journey out to the turtle locations and great rum punch. Would recommend this trip as finding a turtle was obviously their priority, and they found them instantly. I even got to swim with one on my own as there were two or three stops and people were not snorkelling after the first drop. Loved it,... More

The crew are always lovely we had Captain Jose and the turtle whisperer Matthew with us this time. We swam with the turtles and encouraged by some rum punch and the crew showing us how to dance to Soca music we then had a party on the boat while having a trip up the Gold coast. Who says Brits are... More

The Tiami Catamaran and Turtle Sailing excursion was one of the highlights of our trip. It was an excellent experience. Great staff (humorous & respectful), lots of sun & water. I don't swim so I didn't snorkel or swim with the turtles. I did hear there was only one turtle and few fish. But I went for the sun, water... More

Took an excursion while in port on a cruise. BEST time ever. Captain Sam and the crew were friendly and fun! We swam with sea turtles and snorkeled in a quiet cove with a couple of sunken ships. Crew was very patient with those who were hesitant about swimming in the ocean and were very thorough with safety instructions. Then,... More
