Sub and See Combo Tour - Barbados Natural Beauty

Duration: Half Day

Sub and See Combo Tour - Barbados Natural Beauty

Discovering the natural beauty both above and below the Caribbean Sea is a must during your holiday in Barbados, and there are many different ways to do so. This unique tour will introduce you to the treasures of the ocean on a real submarine before you board a bus and venture across the island to visit pristine beaches, historic churches, rural villages and old plantation ruins, enjoying spectacular scenery on the way.

Diving and snorkeling may be the most obvious choices when it comes to exploring Barbados’ majestic undersea world, but if you are looking for something a bit different, the award-winning Atlantis submarine tour comes highly recommended by locals and tourists. This unforgettable undersea voyage will take you down to depths of 150 feet in air conditioned comfort to observe spectacular seascapes, vibrant coral reefs and a stunning array of tropical marine life. Peer through the large port holes and you will see hundreds of brightly-coloured exotic fish swimming past you, as well as sea turtles, rays, octopus and many more exciting sea creatures. The whole family will be captivated and you don’t even have to get wet!

Back on dry land you will jump on board a bus and travel from Spring Garden Highway, past beautiful white sandy beaches on the Platinum coast (west coast), the luxurious Sandy Lane Estate and several historic churches before reaching Speightstown in the northern parish of St Peter. This quaint old town has a long and colourful history dating back to the early 17th century when it became the first major seaport and commercial centre of Barbados.

We then travel inland towards the ruins of Farley Hill National Park, which was once regarded as one of the grandest plantation houses in the Caribbean. Dating back to 1818, this regal Georgian mansion boasted many beautiful rooms, but the structure was sadly destroyed by fire in 1965. The imposing ruins are nestled in a forest of mahogany trees, high up on a hill overlooking the rugged Atlantic coast. Surrounded by gardens, lawns and towering palms, this idyllic spot is a popular place for picnics, weddings and music festivals.

Enjoy the spectacular views before we continue onwards to St George, one of only two land-locked parishes on the island. Although there are no beaches, you can still enjoy wonderful views of both the south and west coasts. This picturesque parish is made up of lush valleys and sugar cane fields, which slope gently down towards the sea, and it has a quaint country feel with its modest chattel houses, rum shops and tranquil suburban villages. There are also several historic sights to see here, including Gun Hill Signal Station and Drax Hall, the oldest remaining Jacobean property in the Western Hemisphere.

This is a great opportunity to get off the beaten track and see Barbados’ rural natural beauty before we return to Bridgetown Port.
