We booked the 1.5hrs cruise to see the turtles and shipwreck though our hotel. It was amazing and the staff excellent. We had two children. A staff member became our daughters boat taxi and took her to see the turtles and shipwreck. Very professional and ment we could also enjoy getting to see the turtles knowing she was safe Our son did go in the water and taxi about a little but hes younger and not as confident as our daughter. It was amazing and highly recommend. Good value for money.

We booked a snorkeling trip with Tranquility online and it was one of the highlights of the trip. For only $35/p we met them in the morning, were treated to a free rum punch at a beach cabana, and then had a quick, informative orientation to the day. The staff were incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, and just great guys that visibly love what they do. We ended up being the only ones that morning with the whole huge boat to ourselves and all the great staff focusing on us, so I think we lucked out. They took us to a couple shipwrecks first and the main guide knew almost all of the fish species and history of the wrecks. We then went to an area where we got to swim with two different species of sea turtles (greens and a hawksbill) and stingrays. They were also very respectful and sustainability oriented, which we really appreciated and valued. They provided the gear as well as some fresh fruit and more booze on board! They also gave us some great recs for lunch and the place we went afterward (Pirate's Cove) had an awesome Barbadian lunch buffet. These guys were fantastic in every way and we couldn't recommend them any more highly!

We booked the 1.5hr experience which included seeing turtles and the shipwreck. The crew were amazing and kept the atmosphere lively and were very funny. We had clear instructions to start of with which helped as I have never snorkelled before. We saw 2 turtles up close and plenty of different species of fish. The experience was worth every penny and more and I would 100% recommend this to anyone visiting Barbados.

Tranquility advertises that you may see 10+ turtles but I know we saw more...could not keep count. They said don’t touch turtles and we had to work to avoid doing so! In addition we saw 3-4 sting rays and some beautiful fish. Their snorkel equipment was first class as was the boat. Staff were fun and funny. Great experience. Oliver was especially knowledgeable and and went above and beyond to make sure everyone had a great experience.

We went on a 1 and 1/2 hour cruise to swim with turtles and see a shipwreck! The amount of time in the water was perfect in our opinion! Just enough to enjoy and be able to get back to the beach. The entire crew was outstanding! They helped get reluctant children into the water and watched them carefully to relieve their worries. Also very helpful with everyone else on board! I would highly recommend this cruise with this crew!
