Owner description: Silver Moon is the original luxury catamaran operator in Barbados. We charge a little more than our competitors, but cater exclusively to small numbers. This means you get more room to relax and extra attention from our staff who will cater to your every need. Every day we serve a full buffet lunch featuring Barbadian specialities, our home-made rum punch, and unlimited beverages and blended drinks all day long. We also offer 4 hour sunset dinner cruises where you still get to swim and snorkel, and also take in our beautiful sunset. We'll get you away from the crowds, closer to the turtles, and promise you a day in Barbados that you'll never forget.

We were sharing the catamaran with 10 others people, we had plenty of space to relax on the boat (which can apparently host a party of 60 people).
The crew of 3 people were definitely working hard to make this time amazing for everyone, distributing drinks, home made cakes and snacks regularly, putting nice music.
They also brought us snorkelling to some really nice areas, we saw a lot of fishes / wrecks and turtles (almost eating on your hands!).
You will be on the boat for around 4 hours, lunch included, it makes it an excellent day out for whom want to relax and visit Barbados, with it you makes the most of your day.

Recommended by a friend and we weren't dissapointed! Picked up from our apartment by really friendly guy who was telling all different stories about the island. We booked onto the 24 passenger cruise but ended up being only 14 of us so we had loads of space to relax. The snorkling with the fish and turtles was fantastic - got really close to all the turtles are were able to feed them. The lunch was amazing - flying fish, bbq chicken, mac pie and loads of salads. As much booze (and water) as you could drink - the staff were friendly and lots of fun. All in all a great day and fantastic value for money! Would do it every day if i could!

We signed up to go snorkeling on the Silver Moon catamaran. The trip was very well planned and organized, we were picked up at the hotel, we were made very comfortable, there was excellent food and beverages. The staff was extremely nice and accommodating. We made several stops to snorkel and enjoy seeing the tropical fish and coral. We also swam with 5 turtles! The boat was very roomy and well maintained. The crew was extremely knowledgeable about the island. It was a very enjoyable day!

We were a party of 11, seven adults and four children. We opted for the catamaran that hosts 12 people.We were the only passengers. It costs slightly more than their bigger boat which takes 24 people but it is nice to think you have your own charter. The boat is spotless and just about everything shines. Ben was our Capt. and Tony was 1st mate. Both were born and bred on the island. We were taken by bus from our ship to the catamaran. This outfit has its own bus. The sail is along the east coast of Barbados which seems to be one of the wealthier areas on the island. As we began our sail we were offered some warm banana bread. Our first stop was near party boats and many people were in the water. After getting gear on our party got in the water. Ben was in the water, also. He was dishing out sliced fish to the turtles which came up between our party to eye "up close and in person". The turtles seemed very happy to see Ben. The kids were thrilled to be that close to the turtles. Our second stop was off the grand- luxe "Sandy Lane Hotel". This was our lunch stop. Lunch consisted of flying fish, bbq chicken, salad and vegetables. It was a very tasty meal. Needless to say, cocktails, wine, water flowed during the entire trip. Tony got into the water for the second snorkeling try and everyone some some interesting fish. One grandchild who had a hard time mastering breathing through a snorkel was the last on back on the boat and filled with many observations. It was indeed a five star experience and well worth the additional money. There was an awful lot of room for us and everybody could stretch out. As Mikey said, "Try it you'll like it." On the bus ride back to the ship, we were joined by the folks who sailed on the bigger cat and they seemed to have had a good time.

Our wedding party of 24 of us set sail for a private charter to snorkel, sight sea and eat. Silver Moon's catamaran, staff, food and snorkel gear was all sublime. It was a highlight for our friends/family who enjoyed every sun soaked moment. We were all really impressed with the food, it's quality and quantity was fab. No short cut convenience foods offered. Fresh fish, vegetables, loads of sides and my vegetarian friend ate like a queen. The homemade bananna bread and carrot cake snacks were a nice homespun touch. I'd like to give a special mention to the crew that took such great care of us: Elvis, Marlon and a gentlemen who's name eludes us at the moment. Our group was raving and I recommend them to anyone! Great value for your heard earned dough.
