Discover Barbados’ fascinating marine life with an exhilarating snorkel adventure of the Folkstone Marine Park. Submerged beneath the glistening waters here, approximately one-third of a mile offshore, is an impressive reef garden littered with sea lilies, sea anemones, corals, several species of sponges, huge sea fans and other fascinating marine life.
Bask in this mesmerizing ambiance and marvel at sightings of graceful turtles or being encircled by large schools of brightly colored, sociable tropical fish (mainly large Parrot Fish). Folkstone Marine park is popular amongst snorkeling enthusiasts and offers an excellent snorkeling experience for your entire family.
The beauty of this park can also be enjoyed from the comfort of a glass bottom boat. Glass bottom boat tours are available here daily. In addition, check out the park’s marine museum and aquarium, illustrating the rich marine life of Barbados. (Open Monday to Friday, from 9am to 5pm).
