Under the surface of the sea Carlisle Bay comes alive with vibrant tropical fish in abundance, sea horses, sea turtles, octopus, rays, and much more! This unique array of marine life is due in part to the six different ship wrecks in the water as shallow as 12ft.

Amazing experience, crew were so friendly and helpful and determined to help you see a turtle. We were lucky to see one and it was a once in a lifetime experience. Definitely worth the money
My four years old boy...

Excellent snorkelling tour

Fantastic snorkelling tour in Carlisle Bay. Mick (the Captain), Ron & Mario did everything to make everyone comfortable. Took great care of all who chose to go in the water. Just a great experience
Amazing tour!

Just went on this tour today and we were blown away! We only saw two sea turtles while we were out, but the overall vibe and helpfulness from the staff was phenomenal. My wife and I are relatively novice snorkelers and they helped us every step of the way. We never felt uncomfortable and the captain dove down to show us a few things on the ship wreck. Would 10000% recommend for anyone coming to Barbados!
Great experience!

We had a really amazing time! I really appreciated the help given, making sure everyone was safe and having a good time, and putting everyone at ease. Swimming so close to a sea turtle was incredible! And just sitting on the boat with a nice drink at the end was quite nice too :)
Fantastic tour

Great experience

My son and I were very inexperienced swimmers. Mario was great by providing life preservers so that we could float. I had trouble remembering to breathe through my mouth and not my nose. Once I did I was able to snorkel and see a turtle and the shipwreck. I couldn't go as far out as the others in my party but it was enjoyable and very affordable. Would do it again.
Don’t touch the rope

Crew was engaging and very helpful, the trip and experience itself was well worth the price and when they tell you not to touch the rope it’s in your best interest haha.
We saw a turtle!!

The staff, boat, environment and facilities were great. The trip was brief but fun. Seeing the ship wrecks, fish and then finally an actual turtle. Just brilliant. Just make sure you plan ahead if you drive yourself to make sure you know where you are going
Perfect family excursion
lucyh12345, 30-11-2022
Absolutely brilliant! Great value excursion with the wonderful team from Tranquility. Suitable for all ages, really well organised and we enjoyed the snorkelling, some turtle time and the slide on the back of the boat. Thanks for looking after us so well and making little George the chief tour guide. It made his day!
Great Crew!
luvmaz, 30-11-2022
We had a great experience. The crew was very enthusiastic and made it a great time. They helped if needed, and let you do your own thing if not. Seeing the turtles were amazing, and the shipwreck had tons of different fish to see. Only downside is there are soooo many other tours out there at the same time, but we were extremely happy with our boat and crew!
Brilliant experience, great support for non swimmers
edwarddW3764IB, 30-11-2022
Great experience for a good price. My fiancee isn't comfortable in water but they helped make sure she was ok and helped all throughout the trip. The support and confidence they gave her means she would like to go again. We were lucky enough to see turtles as well which was amazing.
Amazing and fun
CATHERINE_G, 29-11-2022

Worth every penny

Captain Harry and Mario were kind, courteous and made the experience memorable.
I was my first time and the crew went above and beyond to make it a wonderful experience.
I wish I could give more stars!
