I was actually unable to use Charles who runs this company due to lack of availability however I felt I should post this review due to the positive experience I had dealing with him. Charles was genuinely disappointed that he could not accommodate my trip and rang my hotel room to discuss my needs (young children, me and my wife who had never snorkelled before), gave sound advice and discuss another operator who could help us. Charles put me in contact with Nevil (Snorkelling Wid Nevil, see separate review) and even sent us links to online guides via WhatsApp so we could get an idea of what was required in advance and also followed up to make sure we had a great time. In conversation with Charles his passion for snorkelling was obvious along with his desire to teach others and let them experience the turtles. Although I never met him in person, based on the help he gave us in arranging an alternative operator and his genuine, friendly demeanour I would have no hesitation in recommending Charles to others.

Charles is the best tour guide in Barbados. My partner and I took a private tour with Charles to see turtles and the shipwrecks - we had an amazing time, with a few drinks and his delicious brownies. He is very knowledgable of snorkelling at taught us both how to properly use the flippers and mask. I'd highly recommend Charles's tour for families and couples as he can cater for all. We'll definitely be booking with him again.

Charles is the best captain/tour guide/photographer you could ask for. Such an incredibly cool guy, so patient, so knowlegable... We had the best boat trip we've ever had, an absolutely perfect day from start to finish. If you are in barbados, and you want to get out on the water; do not book a big commercial trip! Email Charles (cliff sharker) and have a much better time. Stew & Ang.

We toured with Charles and Zeke to get up close and personal with the green turtles of Barbados. We left at 7 am so we could beat the cruise ship crowds. We arrived at Carlisle Bay and had the sea to ourselves. Charles only takes small groups of 7 so it was nice not to fight with other snorkelers in the water. Charles advise on how to best interact with the turtles along with tips on snorkeling equipment made it a wonderful experience. Shortly after we arrived so did the turtles. We spend about an hour in the water playing and getting some great photos. After the turtles we snorkeled the shipwrecks which were close by. We toured Bridgetown via water inlet. He provided drinks and snacks along with transportation to and from our hotel. This is not a huge party boat but Charles turtle expertise makes the tour well worth it. Customer service is very important and he works hard to make sure his guests have a great experience. If you are looking for a small intimate tour with turtle interaction Charles and Zeke from Cliff Sharker are for you.

Family trip with Charles was great. I don't know if he's a magician, but in the crowded sea we had 3 green turtles just for ourselves. Charles treated us very fair and we liked the trip very much. It's worth every dollar. The girls were excited and so were we.
