What To Expect

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

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.

Perfect day in Barbados

We had a lovely day on El Tigre. The staff was very friendly, boat was clean, drinks were endlessly poured and lunch was fantastic. Highlight of the trip was swimming near the sea turtles as the guides fed them near our party. We also enjoyed seeing the shipwrecks and all the different colorful fish. We loved the entire experience
Well worth booking!

Catamaran fun with Sea Turtles

Lovely tour. Process was easy from pick up onward. Had up close and personal time with the sea turtles, plus many tropical fish over the ship wrecks. The boat itself was clean and well maintained. There was no shortage of drinks. Unfortunately Mr got sick and we jumped off at the beach before lunch but it looks scrumptious. The staff were excellent and very kind, had a sea-do bring us to shore where we easily got a taxi and back to the ship. I do highly recommend the tour.
Fabulous friendly crew. Fun facts from driver first thing in am. Everything was very well oil machine. Weather raining

Great sailing trip

Crew was great. Our safety and comfort were what they were all about. Food was good, and of course sailing around Barbados was wonderful.
Fantastic Crew!

The crew does a fantastic job! From pick up to drop off back at our hotel everything went smoothly. The crew went out of their way to make sure you were having fun and waited on you constantly. Lunch was great and consisted of hot food and salad. While snorkeling the crew is in the water ensuring people are safe and they feed the fish so they come swim around you. We only saw 1 hawksbill turtle, but he was beautiful. Wish we had seen more. Took a nice sail up the west coast after. Highly recommend!
