      My only complaint was the timing which could have been longer and that's me being greedy.😎
      The team were wonderful, knowledgeable, friendly and treat you like something special. Boat clean and comfortable. Food enjoyable with plenty to drink.

      Amazing high quality sail and snorkel
      This was absolutely amazing. We went with my 7 year old daughter, wanting to make sure we didn’t have an overcrowded sailing trip. The excursion was way beyond expectations from start to finish. Maximum of 12 on a catamaran so loads of space. Pick up and drop of all brilliant. The crew were unbelievable - endless very high quality food and drink in endless supply from start to the very finish and an amazing lunch. High quality boat. Two amazing snorkels - Peter was brilliant with amazing knowledge of what was going on under water. First stop at a beautiful reef and ship wreck and second to see turtles and tarpons followed by a beautiful setting for a lunch stop. Even better was the fact that the crew actually sailed all the way there and back. Only motor was in and out of port. Just the best day and we would for sure do again. I couldn’t recommend enough.

      BEST tour in Barbados!
      This was AMAZING! We have been to Barbados a few times via a Celebrity cruise. This was the first time we didn't go to a beach and I am so glad we chose this tour on Calabaza. First off, it is a small group (maybe 10 of us?) gorgeous boat, & a fantastic staff that took us to a few snorkeling spots. We truly loved this tour! In the future, whenever in port, we will 100% take this tour again. They met us outside of the port gate and drove us appx 10 minutes to meet them at the dock.

      Exquisite sailing and snorkeling trip -- Perfect!
      Can't say enough about this wonderful Catamaran Cruise. Captain Sam was amazing, as were the other crew members. The breakfast and lunch were absolutely delicious. They took such good care of us from pick-up, throughout the trip, and when we were dropped back to our hotel. We hit a perfect day for weather, and the snorkeling was great. We saw turtles, stingrays, turtles, and all sorts of beautiful fish. They keep the trip to 12 guests, which was delightful. Not a booze cruise of any sort, but the drinks were available the entire time we were on the boat. I read everyone's excellent reviews and decided that this was the company to book and I'm so glad I did! Highly recommend this company if you're looking for a Catamaran trip in Barbados.

      Small Group Cruise
      We booked this trip as a birthday celebration for my husband. We had considered booking a cruise as part of a much larger group. I am so glad we went for this small group cruise instead. I cannot rate it highly enough. It was outstanding - great value for money and the captain and crew were so attentive. I am not confident in the water but Mikey spent the whole time with me when we snorkelled so I could see a turtle! The lunch was great and there was lots to drink - alcohol, juice and water. If you are planning a cruise while in Barbados - choose this one!

      Great sailing trip with Calabaza!
      my husband and I took the trip during our one week hotel stay on the west coast of Barbados. This was a high point. Excellent fun-but-professional crew, small number of people (10), fantastic food even though this wasn't a "meal" trip. Saw a turtle while snorkeling. Sailed back in the sunset. All around just great, highly recommend this group!

      Excellent trip
      We were picked up and delivered back to our hotel. Calabazza crew welcomed us aboard their lovely catamaran with coffee tea ans banana bread. Food and drink flowed all through the cruise..nothing too much trouble. Much care was given at stops for snorkling. They only take 12 guests at a time , so plenty of space and excellent care. Second trip...hopefully not the last

      A birthday treat
      Had a fabulous sunset cruise with Calabaza for 12 people. The boat, food and snorkelling were wonderful and the crew went above and beyond to look after us. Thank you for making my birthday memorable even down to a delicious chocolate birthday cake. Highly recommend this company and this tour.

      You will be treated like royalty on this cruise
      This was one of our favorite excursions in a long time. The snorkel sites were very interesting, the water was clear, and the ship was not overcrowded. They had great drinks (even Mimosas!) and the served a gourmet appetizer almost every 30 minutes =). Would totally do this again! FYI - a little more expensive than average, but totally worth it.

      Amazing Trip!
      The entire process was flawless with Calabaza. From the moment we walked out of the port, everything was smooth and the best excursion we booked during our cruise! The boat crew was amazing and helped everyone. Lee even swam down after my GoPro fell out of my hand, which was waayy above and beyond!!!! Everyone loved the food and there was definitely no shortage of beverages flowing. Honestly cant say enough good things about Calabaza and I would definitely book with them again without a doubt!

    We've sailed on the 5-hour lunch cruise twice before and decided to try the sunset cruise when we returned to Barbados this year. The sunset cruise with Captain Sean was amazing. We got to swim with the turtles and visited the shipwrecks as before which was wonderful as usual. The highlight of the trip was hoisting the sails and sailing while watching the sunset - we even saw the green flash. The snacks and drinks were on point as usual. You can't go wrong with Calabaza.

    We booked a sunset, 3 hour cruise and it was perfect from start to finish. Transportation was included (which was a good idea after all the rum punches!). There are plenty of catamaran cruises to choose from, but we especially liked the smaller boat that Calabaza offers with a limited number of people on board (about 12 max I think). It made for a more cozy and relaxing day as opposed being crammed in with 40+ people on some of the other boats we saw. The crew was very friendly, helpful and above all professional in all the operations of the boat.

    They took us to two snorkeling spots, one with mostly fish and one with sea turtles. Both were great, but just be warned that there will be other boats - with everyone snorkeling all within the same small area - so it can seem crowded. A bit of a turn-off but still well worth it.

    To me personally, the best part was the sail back to port. They cut the engines and hoisted the sails and we cruised in peace and quiet while the sun set. It was magical.

    Highly recommend the afternoon/sunset tour. A beautiful time of day, and 3 hours is plenty of time to enjoy the snorkeling, the sailing and the sunset.

    To help celebrate our daughter’s 11th birthday, we took the Calabaza sunset cruise from Bridgetown. Gina, Sean and Kieran crewed the catamaran and provided the 4 of us with a wonderful experience. Our other daughter is 8 and both children had a great time snorkelling and sailing. Great hospitality provided by the team. The boat isn’t crowded and the guys ensure all have plenty to snack on and drink.

    If you want a luxurious way of seeing the west coast, snorkel in the Caribbean with turtles with no more than 10 people then this is the cruise to do.

    This was our second cruise with the Calabaza team and we will be back next January!

    We went sailing with Calabaza in 2017 and booked again with them for a sunset cruise August 2023. The captain and crew were brilliant, really attentive and drinks and snacks flowed freely. The rum punch was fantastic. They made us and our teenage daughters very welcome and we saw a number of turtles on our snorkelling stops. The best bit however is the sailing up the west coast at sunset, pure peace and relaxation with delicious food and drinks. Would highly recommend this cruise, there were only 9 of us in total so we had plenty of space and the yacht is clean and well maintained. Im sure we will be back again. Thank you for a fabulous afternoon.

    Beautiful catamaran with great, friendly crew . Charlie the skipper was fab ! It felt like a private charter with only 12 people aboard .
    Really worth paying a bit extra to go on this sunset cruise along with swimming with the turtles

    Our trip was fantastic. I am not a seasoned swimmer and Rolf took time with me to make sure I was safely attended to while snorkeling. This cruise was definitely one of the highlights of our vacation. The food and drinks were excellent and abundant, while snorkeling we saw many fish and turtles, the sunset was beautiful and I saw the "green glow". The crew was informative and the captain has the best sense of humor but with safety being the primary goal.

    P.S. Look out for cheap imitations. We saw boats packed with people; this cruise has a limit of people and is much more intimate.

    We took a sunset cruise with Calabaza, we received fantastic service from start to finish. Our pick arrived on time and took us to the yacht. There were only 10 of us on the cruise. Once onboard. The service from AJ, Mikey & the rest of the crew was superb. Whenever our glasses were almost empty they were there to get us a fresh drink. The food was finger style food which never stopped coming, everything was tasty.
    We did 2 swim stops, first to see the turtles and then over 2 small ship wrecks. Both were fantastic, we saw a vast variety of marine life.
    To finish off we sailed as the sun set with mood music in the background and yet another cold drink in our hands.
    You were go wrong if you choose these guys for your cruise.

    Set sail this afternoon for the sunset trip aboard the calabazas catamaran. And what a day!

    Collected Seven of us from the hotel in an air conditioned van and taken to the dock outside of Bridgetown.

    The catamaran itself was well equipped. They only accept 12 passengers so wasn’t crowded at all. The deck at the front could have happily held us all but the back of the boat with the tables and shade was utilised too. Male and female toilets provided privacy when needed too.

    First off to swim with the turtles - onto the shipwrecks before sailing up the west coast of the island. All incredible and moments we will never forget. Everything was provided and nothing was too much trouble.

    The crew were first class. Shout outs to all of the staff - Chad, Mickey and Pete. They were welcoming, informative, funny and extremely attentive with the service. They made the trip what it was. The constant flow of drinks and food throughout the afternoon meant you were literally left wanting for nothing. Guys - if reading this you are a credit to not only the company but to Barbados. Thank you.

    If you are reading this review and have been looking at these catamaran trips, you will not go wrong with these guys. Truly a remarkable day!

    We were NOT able to do this fantastic experience because our Oceania cruise ship was not able to tender into the port. Technically we were supposed to be charged $260 for two but this company never charged my credit card. This is really quite amazing. Also, they are very quick to respond to any questions or concerns. Hope we get back there some day to take this afternoon sailing. Tracia is an exceptional employee or part owner or this firm.

    We were picked up from our hotel bang on time by a friendly driver in a mini bus with all the other passengers. There were 11 of us in total (the max for this experience is 12 so such a nice small group.)
    When we reached Bridgetown we were dropped off right next to the pontoon and we boarded immediately and we’re offered drinks and fruit.
    We set sail and were able to go wherever we wished on the boat (either staying seated on the table outside the back or enjoying the nets or decks at the front.)
    There was a great soundtrack playing music throughout and we made our first stop to snorkel with Turtles and anything else we could spot.
    We then boarded again and made a short journey to two shipwrecks where we snorkelled over them and saw hundreds of beautiful kinds of fish.
    After, we boarded again, lazed out the front being served drinks and canapés as we sailed towards the sunset.
    It was AMAZING, we cannot fault the experience one bit. From looking at all the other similar catamaran experiences, this is the one. A small group, never an empty glass, very friendly and fun crew. You felt safe and content at all times and they made the day so incredibly special!
