Tourists make splash off Carlisle Bay
NO, THESE WERE not pirates landing off Carlisle Bay with any untoward intent, but a happy band of tourists whose only plan was to dip into one of Barbados’ most treasured resources – its soothing waters.
The group of visitors had a ball on board the Jolly Roger as it took an unusual but enjoyable “voyage” just off Bay Street yesterday.
And many of them may well be coming back, since it was announced yesterday by British Chancellor of the Exchequer George Osborne that the prohibitive
Airline Passenger Duty (APD) – a bane to the island’s tourism arrivals – would be reduced for British travellers coming to Barbados and the Caribbean. (RJ)
