The crew does a fantastic job! From pick up to drop off back at our hotel everything went smoothly. The crew went out of their way to make sure you were having fun and waited on you constantly. Lunch was great and consisted of hot food and salad. While snorkeling the crew is in the water ensuring people are safe and they feed the fish so they come swim around you. We only saw 1 hawksbill turtle, but he was beautiful. Wish we had seen more. Took a nice sail up the west coast after. Highly recommend!

From the start, booking was a great experience. I was sent a quick confirmation and pick up time almost instantly. The sea was due to be rough the day we booked for, so the company made sure I was contacted in person at the hotel when they couldn’t reach me on my phone, and it was re booked for the following day. This itself I thought was above and beyond, but that was only the start.
We were picked up by a lovely driver (I didn’t catch his name unfortunately) but he basically gave us the best guided tour yet of all the attractions, buildings and even nature upon the way.
The check in process was quick and simple and we boarded the boat in great time.

Now to the real stars of the show - SCOTT was the perfect guide in the water, he ensured my mum (who had some difficulty with the snorkel at first) was well looked after and made sure we ALL got to see the turtles and shipwrecks. He kept count of the small party on the boat and made sure we all spent enough time exploring. All the while being hilarious and very charming.

PHILLIPE - made me feel comfortable as soon as we got on the boat, making sure we all understood safety and had a drink at all times! All crew members took time out to speak to us and were friendly and very knowledgeable and educated.

LARRY - was quick with his one liners!

I will ALWAYS come back to Barbados and I will ONLY go on El Tigre!

Thank you so much again guys!

Pickup from hotel in comfortable coach, quick and simple boarding, plenty of seats, very very friendly and helpful crew. Drinks and food first class. The crew worked very hard to make sure we all had a great time. Actually saw one turtle briefly but you can't control nature. Well done El Tigre crew.

Maureen our host and crew were professional and fun. We really enjoyed our trip and it was magical to swim with the turtles and tropical fish. The food was lovely, the snorkelling was amazing and the rum punch flowed. All in all a fabulous day and would definately recommend. Thank you Andrea, Liane and Amanda.

Thank you to Maureen and the crew of El Tigre for an unforgettable trip. Snorkeling over wrecks in Carlisle bay surrounded by beautiful tropical fish and of course the turtles. Then a gentle trip up the coast for a great lunch in a beautiful cove before returning to dock. If you are in Barbados you should definitely not miss out on this opportunity .
