By far, our favorite island and favorite excursion. We booked the Tiami Catamaran Cruise - Turtles, Snorkel and Beach. It was nothing short of amazing. See above for description. The best day of our trip hands down!! The ship, crew, lunch, snorkeling, turtles and beach were totally amazing. If I could give this trip 10 stars, I would! Definitely recommend Tiami!!
This was an expensive add-on tour. I really enjoyed it; the snorkelling and swimming was lovely. The food was excellent and the staff nice. However there were too many people on the catamaran compared to those on the other catamarans and it was much smaller. A few people occupied the cabin most of the time so we spent 5 hours in the sun or in the water; we were sunburned despite our factor 30 hats and t-shirts. Regent refunded us 20%. I really enjoyed the day and thought the refund was more than acceptable. I'd recommend this tour if the normal-sized catamarans were used.
It was tooted as a 5 star adventure, but seriously when every catamaran is located in the same area within 500 meters it is not so personal. Why didn't they split up the locations to reduce the number of people swimming in the same area? Also, as there was snorkeling available i saw close to 200 people swimming without snorkel life jackets or other identifying clothing so am quit surprised everyone found there way back to the right catamaran. Part of the excursion included seeing the turtles. however, when I found out that the only way to see the turtles was to have the locals feed them in and amongst the 200 swimmers, I did not participate. Especially after the totally different experience I had on Bonaire where preserving the habitat takes priority, i was not happy that the turtles in Barbados were being lured there for human interest
Sunset and Champagne Catamaran Tour was an excellent tour of about 2 hours, free flowing drinks and nibbles on the return. Professional crew, couldn't do enough for you. Great laugh and would thoroughly recommend
Best catamaran and snorkelling tour ever! Friendly and helpful crew. Fed us constantly and always made sure we had a drink (non-alcoholic until after snorkeling) - banana bread before turtle dive (we saw turtles!) - then off to a coral reef - then back for hot meal (chicken, fish, pasta, rice, salads, coffee/tea) - then off to a lovely beach for an hour of swimming. The crew swam with us and kept an eye on us at all times - to keep us away from fire coral, etc. On the ride back they poured all types of drinks freely. It was just an amazing day.
The highlight of our cruise. We snorkeled two ship wrecks that had hundreds of fish. We snorkeled near a beach with the turtles. We feed them and could touch their shells, it was amazing. Our final stop was off another beach were they served us lunch followed by a swim in crystal clear water. The catamaran was spacious and comfortable. Only 12 persons on board! The crew of 3 was outstanding and served us food and drink all day long. Highly recommend Silver Moon, they are first class!!
On more than 27 cruises this is hands down the best ever excursion. The Silver Moon team gave our family a snorkeling/sight seeing/lunch cruise we will never forget. The crew was above outstanding, the boat was in excellent condition, the lunch was fantastic and the scenery breathtaking. We had kids with us and they went out of their way to make sure it was an experience we will never forget. Highly recommend! We had 11 people in our group so had the boat all to our selves. Don't miss this excursion if in Barbados
