What You Can Expect

Explore and Discover Barbados Tour with Boat Cruise

Snorkel with sea turtles in Barbados!

Explore and Discover Barbados is a specifically created tour that will show first-time visitors the beauty and charm of Barbados. It is also the perfect tour for returning visitors to renew fond memories and make a few new ones.

Your route starts along the east coast. Our first stop is Cherry Tree Hill where we will be approximately 850 feet above sea level. Our next stop is Morgan Lewis Windmill, the last sugar windmill to operate in Barbados. It ceased operation in 1947, and in 1962, the mill was given to the Barbados National Trust by its owner Egbert L. Bannister for preservation as a museum. In 1997 financial support was provided for emergency repair work and it was then reopened in 1999. With all its original working parts having been preserved intact, it is one of the only two working sugar windmills in the world today.

We will continue the tour onto the coastline traveling through Catthewash and then stopping in Bathsheba, which is the favorite stop for surfers in Barbados. Get ready to continue the journey and stop at St John's Church, one of the oldest churches of the island set on a cliff so you can capture spectacular views. From this Gothic church we will travel to the parish of St George. We will pass the Gun Hill Signal station and see the Great White Lion as we make our way to the Garrison Historic area. The Garrison has a special importance for the people of Barbados as it was here where the flag of the independent nation was unfurled on November 30, 1966.

For the second part of your day we will spend the afternoon at Carlisle Bay. Get ready to board the boat that will be take you to swim with the turtles! You will also enjoy free time to relax on the beach. You will be provided with a beach lounger, umbrella and a complementary drink.

This is an absolute must in Barbados, with many photo opportunities not to be missed.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended January 2014

This was our third of three full day tours with viator a and glory tours. Quamy our tour guide, who we had already met from the prior day's tour, managed to further inform us rather than just repeat information he had shared from the previous day. Loved the food provided, Enojyed the clean and well air conditioned bus. Randy, our snorkel and boat guide, personally helped my mother with physical disabilities, fully enjoy her snorkelling of the shipwreck by swimming alongside her. I would strongly recommend this tour company! We aboslutely loved Chris, Quamy and Randy!
