“superb experience”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

The swimming with turtles experience was the highlight of our holiday. Although non swimmers watching other people was fascinating. The crew could not have been more attentive and obliging. The skipper had a non stop flow of stories and one liners which was entertaining to say the least. We were very lucky with the other guests, all very friendly. The food provided as part of the package was very good. Overall a unique experience which we would highly recommend. Suitable for almost everyone although a certain level of mobility is required.

“Best day of our holiday”
Reviewed February 21, 2013 via mobile

A wonderful day out for the whole family. The catamaran was a perfect size with plenty of room to relax and move around. We felt spoilt when we went past other boats packed with tourists. We got to the turtle site first before the hoards arrived. Captain and crew very jovial and helpful, providing a first class service, which was both warm and friendly. The crew swam in the sea with us describing the sites, plants, fish and turtles. Sea was quite rough but sailing still brilliant fun. The lunch was excellent, in my opinion best food of holiday. Definitely recommended. Would do it again. M G Erxleben

“Great staff and a lovely catamaran”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

This catamaran cruise was the highlight of my trip. It seems that all of the catamaran day trips go to the same places, but these guys get there earlier than everyone else because they are based on the west coast, whereas other outfitters have to sail around the island to get to the snorkel/sea turtle sites. This gave us some precious time without any other boats around, so we had more time to snorkel alone with the turtles before the crowds arrived. The boat staff was lovely and waited on us hand and foot, but never made us feel like we were putting them out. The food was very tasty and plentiful, and who can argue with a full open bar????Great service, not a hitch in the whole process from booking to payment to the trip. thumbs up all around.

“Very memorable Catamaran cruise!”
Reviewed February 8, 2013

Me and my travelbuddy was offered to go on a catamaran cruise organized by the hotel, but we wanted to find something on our own that originated from the west coast. So we went onto google and found the good times catamaran cruise through tripadvisor and read all the good reviews so we booked it and We are so happy we went with Good Times.

Since we stayed on the South coast we got free transportation sorted to and from the beach where we left off. Was greeted by the crew on arrival and taken to the Catamaran and everyone was so relaxed and looking forward to a fun day. The Catamaran also wasn't packed like lots of other boats around which made the atmosphere onboard personal and fun!

Also the snorkling with the turtles was a memory for life. I definitely recommend everyone to book their catamaran cruise with Good Times if you wanna bring back a nice memory from Barbados! :-)

Thank you!!

Reviewed February 4, 2013 via mobile

What a memorable trip we had.the captain and crew were charming and nothing was too much trouble.They were professional but also very relaxing and entertaining.The boat was in excellent condition and they knew where to find the turtles without a crowd of other boats.They cooked a superb lunch and captain's rum punches were special.Eight of us hired the boat and we will book next year!
