While in Barbados recently, we wanted to make sure we booked a catamaran sail up the coastline and elected to go with Bolador - so glad we did! Captain Jeff and team put on a brilliant day out on the water. He keeps the maximum number of guests to 14, so there's lots of room to move about, plenty of time to swim with the turtles and snorkel the reefs - and to put on a good food spread! Too, they are not stingy with their drinks - free rum punch all day long (and it's delish!)
What was BEST about the cruise was the fact that we actually did most of it under full sail! Awesome! The western coastline of Barbados is beautiful, the cruise was serene. We sailed for a couple of hours up the coast and then anchored in a small cove, where we swam with the turtles. Loved that experience; the sea turtles are amazing, gentle creatures... I could have stayed and swam with them all day. We then headed back down southward along the coast, to a shipwreck, where we again got to snorkel over the wreck and along the coral reef. There were fish EVERYWHERE! As soon as we were in the water, the fish appeared, swam with us. Very cool experience.
The Bajan buffet lunch the team put on was excellent... they had the best macaroni pie I had the whole time I was in Barbados, bar none!
If you're looking for a catamaran experience but don't want to ride the bigtime party boats and would rather a smaller group, this is the sea tour for you. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Captain Jeff and the Bolador! You will have a fabulous day!
