Has anyone gone on one of the Turtle oriented snorkeling trips offered by Celebrity in Barbados? We sail on the Constellation on Feb. 12 and cannot decide between the kayak and turtles or the snorkeling and turtle trip on the boat.
I personally would love to hear anyone's experience also. After reading posts, I saw very good reviews on SilverMoon booked privately for snorkeling/boat. Much lower ratio of passenger count.
I'd also like to know if one can just find a tour to go see or interact with the turtles and not spend most of the day doing it.

We snorkled with the turtles on our Celebrity Galaxy, it was really really cool. First you sail in a catamaran, which is very relaxing. The snorkeling was awesome, the tour guides feed the turtles and they came up really close to the surface, there was a ton of them and so huge! A lot of people actually got to pet (well touch) the turtles.
I haven't - but I did go on the Horizon and swam in Cayman Islands with the Stingrays....that is awesome!
By the by- be careful on your ship. My boyfriend got really sick the last night and no one would help us. When I called the hospital on the ship they kept raising their rates and saying the doctor wasn't in and wouldn't really help. by the time I got my boyfriend into a real hospital in CT, they said he was severly dehydrated and had food poisoning....
he ate Fish on the boat..... Of course, after all my calls and screaming matches with everyone from the lowest bar person to the Captain and the president of Celebrity, no one cared ....
Be careful on that ship.
Olechka -- got to your photos of the sea turtles -- they were great. I especially like the closeups-- #49 & 50. Did you have a continental breakfast and lunch on the catamaran? Doesn't look big enough to eat on. Did you go into a bay to find the turtles? So many questions...
