Of the excursions you'll find in the Bahamas, Harrison's Cave is considered a definite “don't miss” by past cruise guests. Stalactite and stalagmite formations, lakes, and waterfalls are among the natural wonders in this limestone cave! Tours take you 2.3 kms into this cave that was opened to the public in 1981. Most tours generally take 2.5 hours, and there will me some walking involved.
Price: Adults expect to pay $70 - $85
Booking Advice: In our opinion and based on reviews from past guests, you can save a bit of cost by renting your own car and paying the cave admission fee ($20 for adults and $10 for children).
These 4x4 tours offer a great way to explore the natural beauty of Barbados! Visit the beaches, see the sugarcane plantations, and experience historic Holetown. 4X4 tours are typically 3 to four hours long.

Imagine exploring the coral reefs and marine life unique to Barbados as you travel to depths of up to 150 ft. in a small submarine! The excursions take about 2 and a half hours, and are considered “easy” to do... no SCUBA or snorkeling is involved. Just sit back and enjoy the scenery!
Price: Adults expect to pay $100 - $119
Booking Advice: We do suggest booking this excursion in advance because of its popularity, and because seating is limited.
Barbados Beaches & Shopping
With numerous enchanting beaches and duty free shopping, Barbados is THE place to find great deals on souvenirs when you're not otherwise preoccupied with shore & sea activities. Save as much as 50% if you're looking for cameras, crystal, jewelry, and watches, but we suggest you peruse native crafts such as batik, wood carvings, and leather goods! Typical shore excursions for beach activities and shopping last from 3 to 4.5 hours.
Price: Adults expect to pay $35 - $60
Booking Advice: As a rule of thumb, you get what you pay for with this excursion. The cheaper excursions do not offer tours that include shopping at Chattel House Village or tours of the rum factory.
Zip-lining in Barbados
