Great tour company and great guides.

I went in the evening tour and saw lots of sea turtles, fish and the wrecks. One of the turtles right under me even swam right up to the bottom of the boat and surfaced about a foot away. So good!

Going near sundown on a rainy evening provided awesome views of sunset and had the turtles out but it was a little harder to see through the boat to the wrecks from a little sun glare. That said the turtles were clear and it was easier when the back of the boat was to the sun. (Only reason for the 4). Earlier with higher sun would be less sensitive to this though you miss sunset.

Definitely a safe and easy way to see the wonders of the bay, you just want to get out of the boat and swim with the turtles!

We booked this as a "shore excursion" on our own, not through a cruise line (though we were here on a cruise) and we were very happy with our experience. It was just my husband and I and our tour guide. We had a tandem kayak, which our guide hooked onto as we were floating over shipwrecks so that we could really spend time looking at them and not worrying about paddling. The only downside to this, as there were a few ships in port, there were many snorkelers around us and we had to actively try to avoid them. But this tour was a wonderful way to enjoy sea life! We saw turtles and rays and fish and the boat was absolutely see through - we have some great video and pictures from our phone up against the bottom. When it's over, you're right on a beautiful beach, where you can rent chairs and umbrellas.

Many thanks to Nicky and his team for their friendly service, flexibility and knowledge. We had to reschedule a couple of times due to weather and Nicky was very flexible and communicative. In the end, we had poor visibility which was unfortunate but Nicky and his colleague made sure we had a very enjoyable afternoon, learnt more about the island the shipwrecks and made the most of a beautiful sunset.

We were amazed with our clear kayak tour of Carlisle Bay and saw turtles, many fish, starfish and of course the shipwrecks. Our guide made sure we were safe (I’m not a swimmer) and that we were able to see as much wildlife as possible. The conditions weren’t perfect but it didn't matter. We had a wonderful experience.

Nikki, the owner, is an honest and kind man. If in Barbados, don’t miss this adventure.

Amazing clear waters lots to see and a knowledgable friendly guide. It was very busy around the wrecks our lovely guide was able to navigate us away from the crowds of snorkellers. As the boats are none invasive the turtles were not scared away. We could see everything through the clear bottom of the kayak.

Our guide Nicky was very friendly and informative - he gave us great information about the shipwrecks and the different sea life we saw. We managed to see plenty of turtles and starfish.

My husband and I had a great time. Perfect for kayaking beginners so don't worry. Your guide will attach your kayak to theirs for a portion of the trip so you can relax and take pictures etc.

Also - don't worry if you have a backpack with you - big waterproof bags are provided and there's plenty of room in the kayaks for them!

The delicious rum punch at the end was so refreshing!

We loved this tour. Carlisle Bay is absolutely gorgeous from land and that beauty only increases once you get out in the water in the kayak. Our guide was great - he did a nice overview of what we would be seeing as well as how to safely paddle the kayak. We saw sting rays, manta rays, turtles and lots of fish. It was too windy our day to go further out for the shipwreck but that didn’t matter to us. We loved our tour and our guide. I highly recommend this!! Thank you Nicky!!

Outstanding time on the water with the guided tour in Carlisle Bay. Guide was super friendly and took the time so we were able to see shipwrecks and turtles. Hooked the kayaks together for a while so we could look more and paddle less. Would definitely recommend. Everything super professional and fun!

This was a great trip. My guide was knowledgeable not only about the bay and the sealife, but also in teaching a novice the basics of how to kayak - thank you for being so patient! The sea was crystal celar to see the wrecks and the turtles. Perfect.
