After hotel pickup, you will arrive at the docks in Bridgetown to board 'El Tigre,' a large schooner fit to carry 50, however we limit the tour to 36 in order to ensure space and comfort.

Upon arrival, take a seat in one of the shaded areas, or lie out in the sun as we pull away from the harbor and begin our journey down the west coast of Barbados.

Along the voyage, you will take in beautiful views of Barbados’ pristine coastline. Enjoy the warm ocean breeze as the catamaran glides on the water and sip on unlimited beverages like rum punch, beer, coffee, or juice.

The boat will make its way to the first snorkeling spot, jump in for a 45-minute snorkel where you’re likely to see sea turtles and other marine life swimming among the coral reef. Next, board the ship and make your way to a shipwreck that has become a thriving habitat for tropical fish. Jump in to view this lost-treasure and the creatures that now call it home for another 45-minute snorkel.

The catamaran will then make its way back to the docks in Bridgetown and you will be transported back to your hotel.

Island Time

We had a great time taking the snorkel and lunch cruise. Mali and Maureen were excellent, our drinks were never empty and smiles never disappeared. Highly recommended!!

Fantastic catamaran cruise!

We’ve been on a few catamaran cruises on various islands across the Caribbean and this one ranks as one of the best! From the outset, the crew are friendly and make you feel at ease. My partner doesn’t enjoy snorkelling and wasn’t pressurised into doing...More

Must do in Barbados!

This was the best thing my friend and I did on Barbados during our whole stay! There were two stops where you watch sea turtles, look at a coral reef, and a shipwreck, and the third stop was just for swimming at a really nice...More

The Best!

I've been on a few catamaran cruises before, some great and one that was so awful I vowed to never go on one again. Although none of these were in Barbados, I was still obviously very skeptical to book another. El Tigre was a wonderful...More

I think it depends on the person. They provide life jackets for those that aren’t strong swimmers.

Hi, I would say no as the snorkels fit quite snug. Give them an email to see if there any larger masks available
