Snorkeling was #1 on my to do list in Barbados. I heard it was an absolutely beautiful place to explore the reefs and I’d never snorkeled near a shipwreck before! With rain in the forecast toward the end of my trip, I decided to go on my first full day to make sure I didn’t miss out on this opportunity! We started our journey with the shipwreck covered in tropical fish, followed by a stop at a local reef. The catamaran also stopped for a swim with turtles, where we were able to swim with a cute baby turtle. We finished up the trip having a locally sourced lunch out on the water. This full day trip was the perfect introduction to Barbados! This is one of those stories where photos say it better than words, so see below for pictures of this beautiful underwater adventure.
This is not a sponsored post, and I didn’t originally include these details, but if you’re interested in this trip, here are a few helpful things to know. I sailed with Balador Catamaran. I originally booked the standard full day trip, but it was full so I was upgraded to the luxury boat. They provided transportation to/from my hotel, which was quite far from the starting points (so a huge $ saver for me). The served unlimited hot beverages, soda, and alcoholic drinks throughout the duration of the trip. All snorkeling equipment was provided. And most importantly, our hosts were safety conscious, kind, courteous, and fun to be around. Here’s a quick picture of the lunch.
