What You Can Expect

Barbados Catamaran Snorkeling Cruise

Snorkel in Barbados!

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.

Very friendly and helpful crew. Great food homemade bread. Saw plenty of fish and turtles. Very little current so stayed in one area and could always get back on the boat whenever. It was good being able to sit inside the cabin as well as out on the deck. Actually sailed for most of the tour. Met us on the dock by our cruise ship and brought us back in plenty of time.

Recently spent a week in Barbados. Weather was fabulous all week. Except for the day we took this cruise. But the guys on the Tigre were a blast and made sure we all had fun with the snorkeling and swimming. Lunch was very good as well. No shortage of very good rum punch which contributed to dancing on the deck. Met a couple of very lively girls from across the pond who contributed to the antics and made sure our trip made the morning papers.

The tour itself was very good! We chose the 5 hour tour with lunch included. The food and service was excellent and unlimited drinks were included so that is never a bad thing in the islands! What made the trip the best was the crew, they were upbeat, friendly and tons of fun! We were on our honeymoon so it was a great way to spend the day. The only downside and it's not their fault was there were several other snorkeling cruises and snorkelers who descended at the same time at the one location with the turtles. We weren't able to see any turtles which I really wanted to see because there were 100 people kicking in the water and swirling sand around so we couldn't see anything. I swam back to the boat after getting kicked by several swimmers and gave up.
That was the only downside and again, not their fault. After lunch we were able to just jump off the boat and enjoy the water and snorkel around before heading back. All in all a very nice day with a great company who hires wonderful people. Highly recommended!

A great tour for water lovers. The catamaran crew were amazing, Maureen made everyone feel relaxed and welcomed once on board. There was free flowing drinks for everyone alcohol and non alcohol alike. For the time on this tour we were all family, very friendly interaction between guests and crew. Food on board was amazing and plenty to go around. We were taken to an area where the turtles
had been seen, which was remarkable given that the recent bad weather had sent many of these territorial creatures from their familiar waters. We also saw a sunken wreck and did some snorkeling,where the fish were eager for a free feed of bread and cake crumbs - a mini feeding frenzy. The one thing thing that tainted the whole experience was a close encounter with the regional fire coral. It truly lives up to it's name as my husband found out by brushing against it with his arm and right hip whilst snorkeling. It burns and whelps up like the sting of a jelly fish. It would have been helpful to have known about this before we entered the water and went snorkeling. It wasn't until he sought help from the crew that they informed us to be very careful.....a bit too late for my husband who is stilling having issues with it, now three weeks later. All this aside a great snorkeling with a great crew.

The 3-hour cruise was very fun as the staff were very bubbly and funny (especially Kevin). It was a great experience snorkeling, seeing the beautiful turtles and Island. Plenty of Rum and Coconut juice to go round. I would recommend this cruise when visiting Barbados.

WE had a great time on the El Tigre !! The crew were amazing, have done better snorkeling in Roatan and Mexico but swimming with the turtles and snorkeling over the shipwrecks was great !! The lunch was delicious I highly recommend this tour, fully stocked bar even wine with lunch . Beautiful Catamaran and again the staff was great, They picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off. Thanks El Tigre for the great day on the water , we definitely do this again if we are lucky enough to go to Barbados again!!!
