The Barbados coastline is home to warm, crystal clear azure waters with ideal conditions for sailing, which is why there are so many scenic boat trips available for visitors to enjoy on this gorgeous island. Whether you prefer cruising on a luxury yacht, a sail on a sleek catamaran or a trip on a smaller monohull sailboat, you’re sure to find a boating activity to suit you.
One particularly popular catamaran tour sails from Bridgetown, taking its passengers to the Carlisle Bay area, just minutes away from the island’s friendly sea turtles. Then, sail along the beautiful west coast, passing the magnificent holiday homes of the rich and famous along the way.
Snorkelling tours are also a favourite with holiday-makers, where you’ll be taken out sea to snorkel amongst beautiful reefs and maybe even a small shipwreck if you’re lucky. This activity is truly amazing; you’ll see, feed and swim alongside a myriad of colourful fish, as well as green and hawksbill turtles.
For something a little different, why not take a trip on a Jolly Roger pirate ship? It’s great fun for all the family as you “walk the plank”, or use the rope swing to plunge into the sea. A buffet lunch is usually included on these trips, along with unlimited drinks, making them perfect for parties.
