Snorkeling in Barbados and St. Lucia


Recommended Posts

We will be on the Silhouette in Feb, was wondering if anyone has done any snorkeling and either country.

We were wondering if the volcanic eruptions in St. Vincent back in April  has disrupted underwater life

and made things hazy.


Appreciate any input.

If you are an excellent snorkeler and not afraid of a long swim, you can snorkel from the beach, Harbor Lights / Carlisle Beach to the ship wreck and also see turtles. Just keep a look out for water crafts in the area such as tour boats. Last time a ten dollar taxi ride to beach one way.

We snorkeled in Barbados and it was great.  They took us to an area with turtles and ten to a small ship wreck.  This was last month.  

Was the tour thru the ship or a private tour company?

We were just in St. Vincent snorkeling.  We did the kayak/snorkeling tour via RCCL.  Absolutely no issues with haziness.  We also were at Harbor Lights last Sunday (we were on the grandeur that left out of Barbados) and walked down the beach and swam out to the turtles and the ship wreck.  I am a 57 yr old female but a strong swimmer and I have participated in triathlons so this wasn't an issue for me.  Unfortunately we never made it to St. Lucia.  Below is Carlisle Bay
