Bridgetown

Powerboat tour running out of Bridgetown Marina

A few years back our family when on a powerboat tour to swim with turtle and we also snorkelled a wreck afterwards. The tour operated out of the Bridgetown marina and was run by a white local man and his daughter who was in her early 20's, both born and raised in Barbados. The powerboat was able to get in closer to shore,away from all the large catamerans in the area where you swan with turtles. Unfortunately, I cannot find my emails from this individual to contact him again. Can anyone help me?  The powerboat was YELLOW.

Hello and welcome to VT........d:o)

I note that you have received no response for a while now. Let me try to help.

There are a multitude of fishing charters available. Althopugh I am fairly familiar with Barbados, I do not recall a charter that compares with your description. However, - oh, and if you have already been through all the available links, - just discard this, - anyway I added a bunch of links to review.

Note that if you plug into Google >Bridgetown fishing charters and click images, you will get a dizzying array of photos you can scan as well, which just might be your best bet

If you have trouble with the links provided of four operators, just retype the name in another window.

and the last one is the Bridgetown yacht club. Send them an e-mail with a description. Experience has taught me that there is a good chance someone there will know about your guy. Yacht Clubs usually have a good idea who is who around a harbor.

Good luck in your quest........d:o)

I was able to find it by your suggestions. I found a photo of exact boat on Google images and then emailed the Yachtclub and they were able to give me his contact information. We are all booked up for a tour with Thriller Ocean Tours in Barbados!
