What To Expect

Oistins is located on the South Coast of Barbados and operates primarily as a fishing village. Oistins is considered the fourth town of Barbados. This major fishing port on the island of Barbados has a fish market and jetty and you’ll see boats bringing ashore freshly caught fish.There is also a big fishing complex complete with an ice factory for the fisherman to fill their boxes and go out for a week at a time, only returning when the iceboxes are full. Popular fishing methods include hand lines, nets, and fish pots. The “official” fishing season is from December to April.
On this tour you will tour the jetty, fish market, as well as visit some craft vendors all within the fishing commune that’s Oistin’s Market. You will also sample Bajan fish based fare at three different stops. The tour will end on Miami Beach where you will relax and view the town’s coastline.

Choosing to visit Oistins by day was one of the best ideas we had during our trip to Barbados. We arrived before the excursion to see a fishing boat arrive and see how the fish was landed and sold. A very interesting experience. The tour was super interesting. Our guide, super dynamic, made us discover several aspects of the fishing sector. We met a fisherman who explained to us how to maintain a net, a craftsman of the renovation of fishing boats in a traditional way (very interesting). We visited the fish market. Finally we tasted excellent fish and cooked dishes. Visiting Oistins by day is really a must and this excursion gives us an interesting experience. - Faire le choix de visiter Oistins de jour est une des meilleures idées que nous eu pendant notre voyage à la Barbade.
