For a real adrenaline rush, take a hydro flight with Jetblade Barbados

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 also 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.
