Calabaza Catamaran or Glory Tour in Barbados??

We have one day to spend in Barbados off of a cruise ship during our honeymoon. Would you recommend that we snorkel with turtles on Calabaza Catamaran or take an island tour with Glory Tours?

I am going with calabaza in dec, but not after checking them out a bit. the snorkeling in barbados is not as good as St. John, Grand Cayman, Tobago or Dominica but it is fairly good if the sea is calm and a sailboat is, if you have not been on a 40+ft boat is quite relaxing considering they only take a maximum of 10 guests. I do not know of Glory tours but ca tell you that the island is lush and somewhat interesting but not quiet as beautiful as St. Lucia or Jamica (not that I plan to visit there again any time soon).

StanKase is right, the snorkelling is not comparable to Grand Cayman, but it is still very soothing and beautiful to take in especially against the back drop of calm, transparent waters and under bright skies and friendly Hawsback turtles, not to mention a few interesting ship wrecks depending on where on Barbados. I would definitely choose sailing on a Catamaran for sure.

The turtles are far more interesting than a land tour. Just my opinion.

As you are already on a cruise, why not explore the beauty of Barbados with Glory Tours. You can even opt for a private tour (I love these best). Sarah is very informative and knows lots of history of the island (her family is one of the original settlers). She stops at all of the island sites or can tailor something just for you. The east coast is especially gorgeous with high cliffs and crashing waves. I'm sure you will enjoy your day.
