This activity will end right where it started.Please contact us to arrange pickup as early as possible after booking if required. (Pick up is not available from everyone's accommodation) We CANNOT guarantee pickup arrangements if we are contacted within 18 hours of departure of this tour. If you are making your own way to our dock you will need to arrive 30 minutes before departure time for check in.
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.
Itinerary
Stop At:  
El Tigre Catamaran Sailing Cruises
After hotel pickup, head to the marina in Bridgetown to board your catamaran, El Tigre, a 60-foot-long (18-meter) and 24-foot-wide (7-meter) schooner that’s big enough to carry 50 passengers but is limited to 36 per cruise to provide more space. The boat offers both shady and uncovered areas so you can choose to sit wherever you’ll be more comfortable. Pull out of the marina and head along the west coast of Barbados, enjoying the sea breeze on your face and admiring the picturesque coastline. While you sail, just relax, sipping a cup of coffee or a glass of juice, rum punch or beer, and enjoy a slice of coconut bread.
Admission Ticket Included
Stop At:  
Barbados
Make your way to your first snorkeling spot, where you should be able to see sea turtles. Spend 45 minutes snorkeling, and then hop back on board the boat to sail to your second snorkeling location, a shipwreck that has become a habitat for many tropical fish. You have another 45 minutes to snorkel here. If you choose the 3-hour option, you’ll then be dropped off at a west coast beach, where your cruise ends. Your transportation will be waiting for you at this beach to return to your hotel. If you select the 5-hour option, continue along the west coast to a third location, where you’ll stop to enjoy lunch onboard the boat. Then hop in the water to cool off, swimming up to the nearby beach, if you wish, for a stroll along the sand. Back on board, enjoy a cocktail and listen to soca — a style of Caribbean calypso music — while the boat returns you to the marina in Bridgetown, where your cruise ends. Unlimited drinks (soda, beer and rum punch) are provided on both cruise options.

My wife and I had a fabulous time on "El Tigre". The crew, from the hotel shuttle to the sailors, were all exceptionally professional, humorous, and easy-going. We felt safe and well taken care of. The buffet was incredible and the unlimited rum punch was maybe too good. The only con? Our five hour tour went by too fast!

This was an excellent experience in Barbados. From the attentive driver who picked us up at the hotel, from the registration process and the crew at the ship, everybody was courteous, attentive, and friendly. The boat was in great shape and the service was top notch. Some snorkeling places were a little crowded as other boats followed the same route and schedule; however, it was a fun experience. Recommended without reservations!

Everything about our trip was awesome. The food and drinks were delicious, all the staff members were friendly and attentive, the snorkeling spots had a variety of sea life, and even just sailing from spot to spot was very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend El Tigre Cruises to anyone looking to go on a catamaran snorkeling cruise.

Absolutely excellent. The crew were amazing - friendly, helpful and genuinely went out if their way to make sure we all had a great experience. The drinks were always topped up and the food was excellent. Snorkelling with the turtles was my favourite. I was particularly impressed with the sanitization and COVID protocols - keeping everyone safe.

The snorkeling was amazing! The water visibility was excellent, over 100 feet! It was wonderful to be able to swim with turtles and see them up close. The ship wrecks and colorful fish were incredible. Also, one of the crew members assisted with me and my girlfriend while we were snorkeling which made my girlfriend feel very safe and relaxed. I would highly recommend this snorkeling cruise.

From start to finish this was an amazing once-in-a-lifetime experience! Attentive and friendly staff and always felt safe in their hands. Good food and drink available throughout the excursion. The two snorkel sites in Carlisle Bay were amazing. We experienced up close green turtles, stingrays, Tarpons and schools of amazing reef fish, all to the backdrop of shipwrecks that were within touching distance!

Unfortunately, the weather wasn’t kind to us but once in the water, it doesn’t matter!! My best experience swimming with turtles so far 😁. Unfortunately my camera strap failed and my camera sank to the sea-bed. Luckily, Chris a member of staff manage to retrieve it, I will be forever grateful.

We are so glad we booked our snorkel adventure with El Tigre! The crew was excellent from the moment we were picked up to when we were dropped off back at our hotel. Everything was taken care of. Great boat, food, drinks, service, and of course the snorkeling was fantastic. Highly recommend!
