Under the surface of the sea Carlisle Bay comes alive with vibrant tropical fish in abundance, sea horses, sea turtles, octopus, rays, and much more! This unique array of marine life is due in part to the six different ship wrecks in the water as shallow as 12ft. After the snorkel excursion we will take you to Savvy on the Bay on Carlisle Bay where you will be provided with a beach lounger, umbrella and a welcome drink drink. Soak in the sea, or lay on your beach lounger and enjoy the sunshine. Its the perfect way to spend a day in Barbados Although lunch is not included it is available for purchase from a beach bar.

Oistins, is a coastal area located in the country of Barbados. Situated in the southern portion of the parish of Christ Church, Oistins operates mostly as a fishing village and a tourist hang out, and is the location of the Anglican parish church for Christ Church. Oistins is also home to the former Christ Church hospital, the former Barbados Coast Guard station, and the offshore landing for ships delivering fossils fuels to the island. Oistins also contains bars and shopping centers.It is thought that the name "Oistins" is a corruption of "Austin's". Austin was an early landowner in this area, described by Richard Ligon, one of the first historians of Barbados, as "a wild, mad, drunken fellow whose lewd and extravagant carriage made him infamous in the island".The name Oistin is known from the annals of Irish and Scottish history. It is probably a Gaelification of the Norse name Thorstein. The name Oistin is still used in Ireland today.A tradition has recently developed for tourists in Oistins to join in with locals at the Friday night Fish Fry and "lime", which sees many stalls selling fried fish meals and local craft, all to the accompaniment of loud music, while older inhabitants practice more traditional 'old time' dancing. The area is fairly close to many of the south coast hotels in Barbados and has several very attractive beaches, for example Miami Beach. Plan my day in Barbados using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.
