      Hoping to head to Barbados for a family vacation Dec 27-Jan 3, kids aged 19, 17, 14. Trying to pick a hotel/resort. I keep reading about: Southern Palms, Ocean-Two Resort, Crystal Cove or Turtle Beach. I believe they are all on the west coast. Like idea of being close (but not too close) to The Gap, for entertainment. Any recommendations for/against the above. Comments greatly appreciated :-)

    • Powerboat tour running out of Bridgetown Marina

      Bridgetown Nov 15, 2015 at 2:21 PM

      A few years back our family when on a powerboat tour to swim with turtle and we also snorkelled a wreck afterwards. The tour operated out of the Bridgetown marina and was run by a white local man and his daughter who was in her early 20's, both born and raised in Barbados. The powerboat was able to get in closer to shore,away from all the large catamerans in the area where you swan with turtles. Unfortunately, I cannot find my emails from this individual to contact him again. Can anyone help me?  The powerboat was YELLOW.

      How long to allow to get to airport from ship.It seems 24 minutes from the terminal to airport but it is suggested to allow 4hrs 24 minutes for this correct?

      Flights out are either 8.05 am and 3.25pm and ship docks at 5.00am...Can we easily make the 8.05 flight or should we do the 3.25pm?

    • snorkeling in Barbados

      Barbados May 28, 2015 at 2:58 PM

      I will be coming to Barbados on a cruise in a few weeks. The three adults that I will be with do not want to snorkel so I would like to find a nice quiet beach with chairs and umbrella to rent and good snorkeling right from the beach. I do not want to take a boat excursion to snorkel without them. Can you suggest the best place for us? How long a cab ride would that be from the ship? What would be approximate costs for the cab, beach access and rentals? If necessary I'll bring my own snorkeling equipment.

      Has anyone done the private tour, with Glory Tours?

      Barbados Oct 14, 2014 at 12:07 PM

      I plan to visit Barbados on a cruise stop, and will have about 8 hours to see the island. I was just gonna book a full day tour, but now I'm thinking a private tour might be a better option for us. I did some calculations, and it's only $20 more per person, than the tour, and I can tour the island at my own pace, and see the places I want to see, not the places they think I want to see, and we don't have to waste valuable time stopping for lunch. Also, will the guide okay with doing some "walking" in certain areas?
      Has anyone done the 6-7 hour private tour with them? Are they reliable? Will they pick us up at our ship, and make sure we make it back on time? I've read mixed reviews about this company, and I don't want to book it, have them not show up, than end up not seeing ANYTHING.
      There will be 2 of us, and it came out to about $97 per person. Is this the correct price? If so, this would be the cheapest private tour I've ever seen, and would definitely be the best option for us. But I've also noticed that the tours to St. Nicholas Abbey cost twice as much as other tours, so will it cost extra if I put it on my itinerary? I'm okay with just seeing the building from the outside. I will not go inside, if you have to take a separate tour.
      Also, what is this PrePay Discount?

      Any sort of feedback will be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Ideally, we would like to tour as much of the island as possible in a short period of time, our boat is docked from 8 am to 5 pm. We want to experience all that Barbados has to offer. Also, could you include driving times if possible so I'll know how much time to allot to each vista point. Thank you so much!
