I was wondering if anyone can tell me about an experience they have had with sea turtle snorkeling in Barbados? I am excited to do this excursion but am having trouble deciding which one. Carnival offers sea turtle and shipwreck snorkel, five star catamaran and turtle encounter, and Tiami sail, turtles and beach. Can anyone tell me about any of these three? All help is appreciated.

I thought I replied to this las tnight but something must have happened to my post.

We did the Turtle/Shipwreck cove excursion last June. It was great to be able to swim with the sea turtles. There is something very tranquil about being in the water and having them swimming around your. The shipwreck cove part of the tour is ok. The ship wreck is really an old steam tugboat but its in shallow enough water that you can dive down to it if you wish. There were lots of fish there. The beach at shipwreck cove was outstanding. The finest white sand I have ever seen. Almost like flour. I would recommend this tour again. I can not say anything about the others.

We have done the Tiami sail and snorkel 6 times and have never been disappointed. Great catamaran, great crew, great snorkel, then they take you to a beach where you can go to shore or stay on board and drink rum punches. We also did the Folkstone Marine Park, great snorkeling there, too.
