Owner description: Small Cats Catamaran Cruises offers a range of day cruises for guests on its sleek catamaran. These are intimate cruises, and are limited to 12 persons on board for a comfortable and personalised experience on the water. We offer a 3-hour cruise, a 5-hour cruise, and private chartered cruises.

This unique tour includes snorkelling with friendly sea turtles and swimming over a sunken shipwreck with many tropical fish. It also includes unlimited drinks, sun and shade, and an authentic sailing adventure. Our 5-hour cruise includes a delicious buffet lunch, which is served along one of the island's beautiful beaches that are selected specifically for swimming.

Bought this tour off the ship. Van picked us up took us to Piet and off we went. Carries up to 10 people and we had a very comfortable group of 6. Rum punch beer and soft drinks served. Had a great time captain Charlie did an awesome job. Fed the turtles, snorkeling at the ship wreck and took us out for a little white water sail. Would definitely do it again. Price was less that what you would pay on the ship. $60 us

Our Small Cats experience was absolutely wonderful. We are a family of four (children aged 6 and 9) and the snorkelling, swimming with sea turtles, visiting a shipwreck and leisurely sailing afterwards made for a really great day out. We opted for the 3 hour tour which included drinks and snacks but we wish we had gone for the 5 hour option (which includes lunch). Charlie was a fantastic host and in my opinion the best guide to have in the waters. The overall service was perfect. Would definitely recommend this.

Our group of 10, 4 moms and 6 daughters chartered Small Cats and could not have had a better day! Charlie and John took such good care of us and were able to answer all questions we had about the fish, wrecks, and turtles. The food was plentiful and delicious. Lots of laughs, adventure, and overall was one of my "do over" days which I could repeat over and over! I would recommend this to anyone looking for an intimate, relaxing day where you want to soak in the beauty of Barbados and be catered to by two wonderful people who became real friends by the end of the five hours!

Loved, loved, loved Small Cats catamaran adventure! Party of 10...4 Moms & 6 daughters college age! Having been on many boat attractions in the area, must say Small Cats was our favorite! Loved having the luxury of a private cruise...loved the attention received from Charlie & John..totally invested in our comfort, safety, and fun! (Very impressed by safety standards on this boat!) Food and drinks were outstanding and plentiful. Food=5 stars Drinks=we didn't exhaust the supply! Entertainment=great music and lots of fun with the crew! Crew catered to our every whim...snorkel dives were relaxing and the time more than ample. Turtles, shipwrecks, and tropical fish were amazing. I/we highly recommend the Small Cats adventure! Don't miss this intimate cruise adventure...so beautiful and SO much fun! Carol from Mssachusetts

We were a party of 9, 4 adults and five children, ranging from 5-12, and the day out with Charlie and John was fantastic! Both brilliant hosts, the shipwreck was great and swimming with the turtles, über cool. Both our boys couldn't believe how far John could swim down and tempt the turtles with some bait! Whilst at the same time making sure everyone was okay. Everything you wanted was there, life jackets, snorkel stuff, a toilet! Then lunch, perfect, very tasty and produced out of nowhere! Drinks were constantly being offered, I think the kids thought they were in heaven with the bottomless supply of sprite! Then we had some sailing time, which was wonderful and relaxing, got to see some flying fish too, the only bad point was that it ended far too quickly! Would I recommend them? With out a shadow of a doubt, if you are going to do one trip whilst here make sure you book this one! Thank you guys :)
