About the activity provider

Our operations began this millennium, with Eco Adventures offering outdoor recreational activities for children and adults. Eco Adventures was born out of our owners’ fascination with the natural environment, Barbados’ heritage, and a desire to share these Barbadian, treasures. It’s amazing how this island was formed, and how Barbadians lived long ago, and why there are many scores of Barbadian centenarians. Our first tours were hikes for summer campers, a service which continues to the present, and has expanded to youth groups, faith groups, the corporate sector, as well as guests to our island. Principal Guides: Victor Cooke received his training from the Late Dr. Colin Hudson, Environmentalist and Agricultural Scientist. Dr. Hudson led the popular Hike Barbados Sunday hikes for seventeen years, and was a recognized wealth of knowledge on Barbados, especially local flora and fauna. Training was also received from Peggy McGeary, Education Officer, Barbados Museum & Historical Society, a fountain of knowledge on Cultural Heritage. Victor is ably assisted by his wife Melva, “The Essence of Naturalness” who is a trained and experienced personal care specialist, a naturalist , our resident photographer, and our Sweeper on hikes/walks Victor is a certified Hike Leader, having earned certification from Hike Ontario, Canada and a WFTGA certified tour guide trainer.
