Did you know that...
For more than 300 years, Bridgetown was a port of call for ships operating in the Eastern Caribbean? By the middle of the 17th century, Barbados was a regular stopping place for ships. Until the Deep water Harbour was built, the larger ships anchored in Carlisle Bay, and cargo and passengers were transported to the Wharf at the Careenage in small boats with oars called lighters.

Did You Know?

The Deep Water Harbour was built by local Barbadian labour working under the supervision of technical experts from Britain?
