Barbados Catamaran Snorkeling Cruise

Select Date and Travelers
2 travelers
    What to Expect
    After hotel pickup, you will arrive at the docks in Bridgetown to board 'El Tigre,' a large schooner fit to carry 50, however we limit the tour to 36 in order to ensure space and comfort.
    Upon arrival, take a seat in one of the shaded areas, or lie out in the sun as we pull away from the harbor and begin our journey down the west coast of Barbados.
    Along the voyage, you will take in beautiful views of Barbados’ pristine coastline. Enjoy the warm ocean breeze as the catamaran glides on the water and sip on unlimited beverages like rum punch, beer, coffee, or juice.
    The boat will make its way to the first snorkeling spot, jump in for a 45-minute snorkel where you’re likely to see sea turtles and other marine life swimming among the coral reef. Next, board the ship and make your way to a shipwreck that has become a thriving habitat for tropical fish. Jump in to view this lost-treasure and the creatures that now call it home for another 45-minute snorkel.
    The catamaran will then make its way back to the docks in Bridgetown and you will be transported back to your hotel.

    This by far was one of the most memorable experiences I've had in Barbados. It's not every day that you get to swim with Sea Turtles in nature. The Cruise itself was very relaxing (plus some dancing included if you're into that), and the waters...More

    The way it works is the shuttle picks you up and take you to the catamaran. Then your excursion begins. It almost sounds like you have a conflict. If you are arriving from a cruise ship at 10. You should definitely call El... More

    Not sure I would recommend for a young child, loud music and alcohol are a big part of the day. Water is 15+ feet deep
