3 hour tour was wonderful. Staff were very helpful especially for those of us who had never snorkeled before or were nervous swimmers. Swimming with turtles was amazing, and the tropical fish so beautiful. Lots of fun, good music and the best rum punch!

Booked a shorter half day tour with Bolador to include snorkelling on a reef and swimming with turtles. People working for Bolador are their real asset - Charlie and Tre were absolutely superb hosts. My wife is was a little nervous snorkelling (having only just learned to snorkel a few days previously) and Tre was brilliant at helping her out... More

This was a fabulous trip as Bolador guarantee no more than 14 people on the boat and we had 9. In addition the boat was upgraded to Imagine and with marvellous crew of Charlie and Adrian we set off. We had 3 stops for swimming and snorkling with one being a wreck. The highlight was swimming with the turtles of... More

Captain Charles, Adrian and Shadell - we salute you, what a great day you gave us. A group of us booked a catamaran (21/09) and were lucky enough to get a lovely boat with a wonderful crew. One of our party was a bit nervous, and the guys could not have been more helpful and understanding, helping to ensure she... More

From the moment we stepped on the bus to take us to the mooring, we felt very welcomed. When we got to the the mooring, we were told we were to go on 'Imagine' which was the smaller boat but more nicely equipped. There were just 11 on this trip but Bolador limit numbers anyway. On the boat, you are... More

My husband and I did the Bolador Catamaran cruise which consisted of swimming with turtles, reef and wreck snorkeling a meal and unlimited drinks, five hours in all. What a fabulous day, Jeff and his crew were very attentive making sure that we wanted for nothing constantly asking if we wanted anything to drink or if we were okay. We... More

We had amazing captains and we're happy just to sit and sail. Lunch was delicious and our boat was spacious, not packed with people like many around us.

If you want to have a relaxing day on the Caribbean Sea then look no further than Bolador Tours. We sailed on 'Imagine' which was excellent and really comfortable. What makes this trip is the crew led by Captain Charlie, Trey and Adrian. These guys couldn't do enough for us by serving endless drinks, serving great food, pointing out landmarks... More

Even though it was a cloudy day - this was a great value tour. We saw quite a few of the bigger busier catamarans - and I was so glad I'd opted for the smaller boat. Great snorkelling at paynes bay and swimming with the turtles. Lunch was plentiful and was local Bajan food. Crew were good - kept the... More
