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.

I arrived by Carnival Cruise. I booked the 3 hour tour with the El Tigre a few weeks before leaving the United States. I really enjoyed my catamaran sailing. They picked me up from the cruise port. I was worried when I arrived at the cruise port gate because they were not there at the time they said they were going to be there. I waited about 35 minutes for a pickup. I even had someone call them. I was the only one from the cruise that day taking the Catamaran tour, however, El Tigre had other hotel customers already on the catamaran boat when I arrived. There was approximately 15 customers on the boat. Rum drinks and other alcoholic drinks were available. Also, some delicious type of bread and coffee. We were able to swim with several beautiful turtles and fish. Sunken ship and coral was okay not exciting. Turtles were awesome! I wanted to go to Carlisle beach after the tour and the driver took me to Carlisle beach AFTER dropping off all the hotel passengers. It took about 45 minutes to 1 hour to get to Carlisle beach after dropping off all hotel passengers. My only recommendation is that if you are a cruise passenger and you do the 3 hour tour take a taxi to your desired beach if you are not going straight to the Cruise port. I waited awhile before being dropped at Carlisle beach and you know cruise ships do NOT wait when they say be on board by 4:30pm, so I was only able to get about 1.5 hours at Carlisle beach, which is a shame because Carlisle beach was awesome!

AMAZING. I was worried about how if it would be an enjoyable experience when I first booked it but without a doubt I would do this again if given the chance. My father and I joined the 5 hour snorkeling cruise where every second was worth it. My father gets seasick easily and forgot to bring Dramamine, luckily the crew supplied seasick pills. The crew was great, they were lively and made it a point for us to have a good time. We were picked up at our hotel and brought in for check in which was very smooth. When we got on the catamaran we took off our shoes and from there we simply sat back and relaxed. We were able to see MANY sea turtles I recommend using the floats they provide because the current was strong. When we snorkeled near the reef we saw many types of fish close up. It was a great experience. When the catamaran was anchored for lunch we were served on the boat had time to swim around. The cruise is family friendly, in our group there were both elderly and young couples, families with young children, families with teenagers and small families as well.

This was amazing. Everything they promised was delivered and more. Maureen's extra motivation to go snorkeling for the first time is a lifetime memory I will have. The food was excellent, the staff were so genuinely friendly and helpful! This is not a party cruise so very family oriented and relaxing! I loved it!
