Explore below the waves at beautiful Carlisle Bay in a new and unique way. With our completely clear 'glass bottom' kayaks you'll be able to see clearly as we paddle over three sunken shipwrecks bursting with tropical fish and marine life.

We'll start our tour from Harbour Lights on Carlisle Bay beach where we will first head to the location where green sea turtles and Hawksbill turtles are regularly spotted.

From there we will journey to three different shipwrecks sunken close to shore where you will have a perfect view of the wrecks through our clear kayaks. Be amazed as you learn the interesting history of the wrecks and how they ended up at their final resting place. Finally we will head to back to shore for a complimentary rum punch on the beach. Simply an unforgettable experience.

Had a great evening with the crew. They were accommodating to your party even with last min addition. Even loved the attempt at a race which my bf and I obviously lost

Thank you nikky for a brilliant tour. It was so nice to be in a small group and have a really personable experience.
There are no words to explain being able to see these amazing sights! And to go on the water in the kayak was really fun.
Lots of fun!

Our guide was very friendly, patient and knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend, especially if there is someone in your party who doesn’t snorkel!
Unforgettable and great value

Good value for money, Nicky was knowledgeable and very helpful. We saw lots of turtles, starfish, tropical fish and 6 shipwrecks.
Recommend this different way to see the sea-life up close

really excellent kayak tour along to the wrecks in Carlisle Bay - saw loads of turtles, good view of the wrecks, swarming with beautiful fish, and one of our party went over and had a snorkel over the wrecks. We were all well looked after by Nicky and Achi: great guides and just genuinely nice people. I wish them the best of luck!
See everything!

Our guide was accommodating and knowledgeable about the shipwrecks. He took us to each one individually while avoiding the crowds and even got to see the turtles!
Awesome day at Carlisle Bay!

Nick was amazing! This is a great way seeing Carlisle bay and learning the history of the shipwrecks. Seeing turtles up close was nature at its best.
A great way to see the turtles and wrecks right from the bottom of your boat

Great tour company and great guides.

I went in the evening tour and saw lots of sea turtles, fish and the wrecks. One of the turtles right under me even swam right up to the bottom of the boat and surfaced about a foot away. So good!

Going near sundown on a rainy evening provided awesome views of sunset and had the turtles out but it was a little harder to see through the boat to the wrecks from a little sun glare. That said the turtles were clear and it was easier when the back of the boat was to the sun. (Only reason for the 4). Earlier with higher sun would be less sensitive to this though you miss sunset.

Definitely a safe and easy way to see the wonders of the bay, you just want to get out of the boat and swim with the turtles!
Fun outing

First time in a clear kayak and it was a very nice experience. The guide worked to find turtles for us to see before and after the shipwreck viewing.
