My wife and I took this tour on a recent trip to Barbados and loved it! We were picked up and dropped off at our Airbnb, so did not have to worry at all about transportation, and we were treated to an incredible private snorkeling experience. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Barbados!

I took this tour with my sister and my two kids ages 10 and 12. We were passengers on the Anthem of the Seas and decided to do this tour on our own instead of purchasing what the cruise line was selling. We were very glad we did. The tour operators were awesome! They got us set up with all the necessary snorkeling gear then it was just a short boat ride out to the snorkeling sites. We snorkeled at 2 shipwrecks that housed quite a number of tropical fish. My sister had a Go Pro camera and the snorkeling guide dove down with her camera and got some great footage in and around the shipwrecks for her. He was also very knowledgeable about the shipwrecks, the island and it's history. The guide was also great with my daughter who was a little timid. He gave her his boogie board to hold on to. We only got to see a couple of turtles but after seeing how aggressive some of the other snorkelers were, I can understand why they don't stick around for too long. Message to all snorkelers: Please be respectful of the marine life and don't chase after them or stick your cameras in their faces. The tour operator provided us with refreshments for the boat ride back and a place for us to change out of our swimsuits. I highly recommend this tour for those who want a quality experience without the cruise ship crowds.

Super friendly and accommodating crew. Thanks to Ashley and Kevin for a great time. We did our trip on Wednesday, February 21st. Very small group so we all got the help and attention we needed. I'd use them again for sure.

Our tour was amazing! We had the boat to ourselves along with the tour guide Ashley who was very knowledgeable and super friendly and our boat captain. They took us to 3 wrecks where we saw all kind of different fish and sea life. We also got to see a turtle upclose! I would highly recommend this tour as it was much more private then the other boats we saw out on the water which were loaded with 30 people.

Great trip and does exactly what it says it does. After a short boat trip, we visited several ship wrecks where we could snorkel. This was a particular favourite of ours and was fantastic to see old wrecks that had now coral and an array of tropical fish. Then we swam across to where the turtles were - our group came really well prepared to the other swimmers we saw as we had flippers and bait. We saw several different turtles who we watched eating on the sea floor and they also surfaced to breathe beside us. Good friendly guides and good boat.

Although we didn't see a lot of turtles or feed them it was a thoroughly relaxing day snorkeling and viewing a few turtles and other sea life our guide was quick to point out various sea creatures. They were very helpful in getting in and out of the boat as well.

Sadly we didn't see any turtles because of the Hurricanes, but the snorkeling was still amazing! It was just my husband and me on the trip, so the service couldn't have been any more personal! And they even provided transportation to the hotel! Highly recommend Therapy Charters!

Where do I begin? Me and the girlfriend went on vacation in Barbados for 6 days and we definitely wanted to check out this excursion. At the resort they wanted about 150 USD per person for a similar excursion with a bigger group for 5 hours. I was recommended to viator by a friend. Upon reading reviews I went ahead and booked the excursion two days before the event with no problems. The day of the event we arrived early to explore the marina small shops and a bar nearby. Now it was time to start, staff was running a little behind but it did not bother me one bit. Staff made us feel very comfortable offering us beer, water, rum, and wifi while sizing us up for our scuba gear. We were offered a memory card full of pictures of the excursion taken by staff using a gopro for only 20. It was only me, my girlfriend, the captain Kevin, and his coworker Ashley who rode a smaller boat to the sites. They did a wonderful job taking us to a few ship wrecks explaining the sites at the same time. They were very patient with us being that we are not expert swimmers. Last up on the trip were the TURTLES! Let me just say that swimming with these beautiful animals definitely made our stay in Barbados worth while.YES YOU DO ACTUALLY SWIM WITH THEM UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL In conclusion I highly recommend any excursion where you will swim with these creatures. But I highly recommend booking with viator and using Therapy Charter. The service we received was A and I would definitely go again when I revisit Barbados. We received a private 2 hour tour with a wonderful staff for a fraction of the cost of what the bigger catamaran excursions offer.

Great trip with Lisa and her crew. Its a small boat - so ideal for a private family group. The snorkelling area is near the docks so plenty of time in the water. The crew are really friendly and helpful. Much better than larger trips. HIghly recommmended!!!!

Helen and family
