Highlights
Cruise Barbados’ west coast on a classic schooner sailboat for half a day
Get the party started with free-flow drinks, including beer and rum punch
Look out for sea turtles as you snorkel the reef—gear and guide included
Skip the stress: Tour includes 2-way transfers from select hotels
What to expect
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.

Great experience!
Aug. 2021 • Couples
10/10 would recommend. The transportation from the resort and back was on time and the driver pointed out unique landmarks on the island. Purchasing your ticket in advance definitely saves time once you get to the boat. The crew was fun, and they played a good mix of music between reggae, hip hop throw-backs and soca. They knew where to find sea turtles and could explain all the different types of fish we saw. The open bar was great, and the food was amazing! We had rice and peas, macaroni pie, bbq chicken, bread, and salad.

EL TIGRE …AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE.
Jul. 2021 • Couples
What an amazing experience , swimming with the turtles and seeing the shipwreck , it was the first time my partner had snorkelled and was having problems , the crew notice this and changed her mask to a more breathe easy type one and took her round so she got to experience it all , captain Larry and the crew are outstanding at what they do , drinks were flowing all day and the food was excellent really tasty.

This is one day I will never forget.

Fantastic turtle day!
Jul. 2021 • Couples
This was an amazing activity. Staff so friendly and they will do anything to make sure you have a great time. There was only a small group of us and we managed to see and swim with the turtles which was amazing. Very covid friendly adventure that I would recommend to anyone. Drinks were provided at all times! This was a very well run and knowledgable trip - please go on it as you won’t be disappointed.

Don’t you wonder why this is 5 stars and the hugest rated on TripAdvisor ?
I know and understand why, having taken this with the elite first class team. Advertised as max (24/36? Unsure, but never large), our group of 8, was perfect. If it were bigger- it would be just as fun. Any smaller and you get a private experience for a great price.
Aka; you cannot go wrong no matter the size ! The staff here really make this trip 10x.

Maureen, amazing host. This IS WHAT you want from a snorkel trip.. we saw Turtles, they gave us transparency- and out future pics of turtles will follow-

I can see why they are #1 and I’m sure #3 would’ve been just as good

Things to know:
- can you do this as a weak or strong swimmer? Yes to both
- Can you take videos - yes ofc
- Are there very clean toilets aboard - yes
- Unlimited booze? Better than most Cancun parties for sure
Verdict: we are booking for the second time in one week. Is it too much? Perhaps! Is it worth it? Not a shadow of a doubt (and we are staying at all inclusive beach resorts)

I don’t normally write TA reviews, the company didn’t ask for one, I begged to write one, so if I’m doubt. JUST BOOK

I think you won’t be disappointed- no matter what

A great way for first timers to be exposed to snorkeling.
The crew was gracious, friendly & helpful. The Canadian woman crew member was particularly energetic & solicitous. The captain was also an accommodating man. We had some first
