Barbados is a luxury, dream destination for thousands of tourists each year. With so much to see and do it is easy to understand why it boasts such popularity and outstanding reputation. For many, the pull is the diverse water-based sports and with the crystal clear inviting sea and stunning backdrop who can resist. Here are five of the best luxury watersports on offer in Barbados.
1. Barbados Blue
One of the most outstanding dive schools in the world, Barbados Blue is located in Bridgetown and offers so many activities for water lovers. Whether you want to scuba, free dive or snorkel this is one of the best places to go. Their qualified instructors will ensure that you are well looked after, and they offer PADI qualifications for those looking to get qualified. They place a heavy emphasis on the eco-friendly, so this is an excellent school for those who want to remain environmentally conscious in everything they do. Customers rave about their time there with many returning time again to expand their experience.
2. Jetblade Barbados
Even those with lots of extreme water activity experience may not have had the chance to participate in jetblading. Relatively new, this high adrenaline hydro flight system is exhilarating and makes the perfect activity for the adventurous thrill seekers. The futuristic-looking kit is not for the faint-hearted, but if you are water confident, this could be the ideal way to spend your afternoon. It is also a great place to start for budding IronMan enthusiasts as this is about as close to flying as it gets. We just can’t promise you will see the famous actor himself during your visit.
3. Good Times Catamaran Cruises
If you prefer something a little more sedate, and a more gentle way to explore the glorious waters surrounding this fantastic island. Charter one of their luxury catamarans and cruise in style or try one of their other activities. From wakeboarding to scuba diving, turtle spotting or fishing tours this Saint James Parish based company has plenty to offer and ranks as one of the best on the island.
4. Spy’s Watersports
With a similar principle to jetblading, flyboarding is another futuristic watersport touted as the next most significant thing. Walking on water, this requires a reasonable level of balance but at least when you fall you land in the crystal blue, and it generally doesn’t hurt. This air based propulsion system is a fun, heart racing way to spend your time in the sea.
5. Radical Watersports
In Speightstown, you will find Radical Watersports offering another vast range of activities from waterboarding to jet skiing and loads in between. Fun for all the family there are activities to suit every level, and the school has an excellent reputation for customer care and attention. Whether you want to ski or spot turtles, the friendly instructors will make sure your needs are met. Whatever your choice of water-based activity it is like that you will find it here.
