Can't recommend this day trip enough! Yes there are many cat cruises up the west coast doing exactly the same thing (turtles, snorkelling, lunch and swimming in a beautiful spot) but this was really special. With a maximum of 16 people (only 12 the day we went out) it was the perfect size to meet people but not feel packed on like many other Cats we saw on the water. The captain Chad and crew were delightful. Worked seamlessly together, and completely entertaining as well. Took great care of us whilst out with the turtles and snorkeling and also once back on the boat. Drinks magically appeared just as they needed refreshing, with magic tricks performed by our captain to boot! Our best day by miles on an already wonderful holiday. We found them in a tourist guide book and felt so lucky that we happened to choose them over any other. Thank you guys!

We had an amazing time with Good Times! Everything was better that we could think! The people really nice, profesional and fun, the food fantastic and the turtles expectacular! They came as soon as we got there and were really friendly swimming with us. We'll definitly do it again when we go back to the Island :)

We had a great time. The captain and his crew were so freindly and just fun to be with, They got us right on the turtles before the bigger Cats with lots of people arrived which was really nice. The guys were very knowledgable about the island as well as the Turtles and the fish. They served a very nice lunch and the drinks were flowing. It was superb. Very personable, We will be going on the GOOD TIMES with the guys on our next visit to Barbados without a doubt. Thanks guys

No matter what you sign up for, you will not be disappointed.

The 5 hr lunch & snorkel cruise is amazing and affordable and a definite must. I was in Barbados with 3 friends and we loved our experience with Lester who catered to our every need while on board. You pay $95 USD pp for 5 hours of semi private sailing onboard the finest catamaran and sipping on some lovely drinks while basking under the Bajan Sun. They are amazing and offer a quality experience.

I think the most important information to share is that the catamaran is never overbooked, you will be about 16 on board and so it kind of feels like a semi private experience. If you want the boat to yourself, it's $250 USD per hour, the price is definitely lower than most.

Call Antje over at Goodtimes, you'll love it!

Without doubt one of the best & most fun activities we tried in Barbados, and a really great way to see the island. Swimming with the turtles was amazing, but the thing that made this trip so special was the staff.

Even though we were a full boat that day they looked after everyone on board superbly. The guys were very knowledgeable, served an excellent lunch, and made sure no one ever had an empty drink in their hand. Also great that they choose to do the snorkeling first thing to make sure you beat all the other boats and it gets too crowded. We had the turtles completely to ourselves.

They were also all so funny and had everyone laughing the full day. Met some great people and had a great day. Book this trip and you will not be disappointed!
