Barbados in a Nutshell 2018

52 The waters around Barbados offer some spectacular fishing adventures for both the novice and the experienced angler Photo: Bradley Jones/Courtesy Cannon Charters Water Adventures As with all islands, the sea influences many of our leisure activities and the island is blessed with a full range of sea conditions from flat calm to pounding surf. When combined with our crystal clear water, this means that we enjoy superb conditions for just about every water sport under the sun. Swimming, surfing, windsurfing, kitesurfing, stand-up paddle boarding, snorkeling, diving, sports fishing and even hydro flights – they are all practiced here and many companies offer services in these areas, including rental of equipment and lessons. Learning how to surf or dive can be a great souvenir to take home! Fancy something a bit out of the ordinary? The Atlantis Submarine offers a fascinating opportunity to explore the mysteries of the underwater world ... either by day or by night! Sailing is a big part of the Barbados experience, especially when it includes a chance to swim with the sea turtles. If you are lucky enough to be on the island around the full moon, be sure to take advantage of one of the evening cruises on offer – few things can compare to the sublime beauty of being on the water under the light of the full moon.
