Barbados Catamaran Snorkeling Cruise

543 reviews
Sail the Caribbean waters of Barbados’ west coast aboard the El Tigre schooner on this fun half-day cruise, with transfers. Enjoy free-flow drinks, including rum punch, beer, and juice, and a light snack as you inhale views of palm trees, beach, and ocean. Stop for guided snorkeling at a reef known for turtle sightings and a shipwreck that’s a vibrant marine habitat. Upgrade for a longer adventure, with lunch.

Relaxing swim or cool down in this calm, cool water. I love it! visited in October 2019. We took a taxi from Rockely, and it wasn't hard to find.

We heard so many people rave about the tour to “snorkel at the sunken ship” and “swim with the turtles”. But with 4 in our family, tours get pricey. We brought our own snorkel gear. If you set out directly towards the horizon from the yellow lifeguard stand furthest to the south along the coastal side of the beach (Pebbles Beach), you’ll reach the ship at a round white buoy. It’s about a 15-20 min swim (use flippers if possible!), but not a hard swim as there’s very little current. No photos unfortunately (we don’t have an underwater camera!) but definitely a not to miss experience! Tons of coral on the boat and huge schools of colorful fishes and we also saw tons of turtles!

This morning (Sunday) I got up early to see the racehorses swimming at Pebbles Beach and it was a real island highlight. I arrived at 6:15 and the first couple of horses had already been down, but they continued coming down and the last few were still there past 8am. It's truly a magical sight, watching these magnificent animals brought down, at first into the shallow waters, and then they most swim out with their handler for a short lap of the bay. Today was the day after the Barbados Derby and was able to see the winner, War Eagle, up close and talk to his handler. Before I went I heard conflicting reports about how often and at what time this happened - so I asked one of the handlers and this is what he told me: - Horses come down most days of the week, from just after 6 - The busiest day is always Sunday, as that's the day after the races plus the horses can stay longer - today there were more than 30 over the two hours - plus this means you may not have to get up quite as early! - On week days they are supposed to be back by 7 as they aren't supposed to have horses on the busy road after that time, so be there early on weekdays! - The beach where the horses swim is on the south side of the pier at the Radisson on Pebbles Beach, between the Radisson & Hilton - One of the benefits of staying later on the sunday is that after about 730 the sun finally rises over the buildings facing the beach, meaning you can get clearer photos of the horses with the light on them - Most of the handlers were happy to answer questions - be respectful of the horses and ask permission before getting too close but all were happy to oblige today.

This beach is so pretty with the sailboats! If you are staying for awhile, it pays to join the Cruising Club. It costs $125 US for a family for 6 months (less for a single person) - you get free beach chairs, loungers, and umbrellas anytime you go. Plus a discount at the restaurant Dippers, plus bathroom use, plus free kayaks any day and also free standup on Fridays... also discounts with Set Sail to rent sailboats or take lessons/kid's camps. The people are so nice there, and it's such a mellow/chill environment. Nice to come work at Dippers (it's only been open Fri-Sunday, but maybe open more now with the holidays). The standup is also super reasonable - $10 US per hour.
