Every time my wife and I take a HAL cruise to Barbados, we take the Catamaran and Turtle Encounter tour. This is at least our 3rd trip. We love sailing along the coast, and then snorkeling in 2-3 spots. We saw about 4 turtles on this tour. The ship crew does an excellent job. I was very impressed with our catamaran. It had comfortable, cushioned bench seats for sitting on. You could lift and store your stuff inside the seats. Read Less

We booked Silver Moon and were on a 45 foot sailing catamaran with three crew and only 12 passengers. We snorkeled with sea turtles and over a sunken barge and reef. The water was a bit murky because of the waves, but the boat was gorgeous and the crew was amazing. They provided great service, food, and drink and it was a day to remember! We'll definitely go back! Read Less

We opted for the Five Star Sail, Turtle Encounter & Lunch (BGI810A) because we love catamaran tours and this included both a snorkelling and beach stop. We boarded the Tiami cat under Captain James. The cat wasn’t too big or crowded (around 40). The outward sail was very sedate and we didn’t go far. We stopped for snorkelling and swimming with turtles first (Pile Bay?), then at Paynes Bay (unfortunately the cat couldnt beach). Although it was relatively easy to get on and off the cat, as both stops were in deep water and, the crew advised going into the sea unless you were a strong and confident swimmer – which I am not. This was a disappointment. Post swimming, there was an open bar with a good selection of cocktails, reasonably decent wines and beers. There was plenty of tasty food (chicken, fish, rice, salads, muffins and cake) for lunch and seconds were encouraged. The crew were friendly and worked to ensure that everyone enjoyed themselves. Music added to the vibe and there was lots of dancing and singing on the return leg. Great fun. My only real gripe is with the transfers. We had to wait ages in the sun for a shuttle bus to take us to the main port. There was an even longer wait for the shuttle back to the main port. Read Less

One of the best excursions on the cruise. Friends on Cruise Critic set it up. There were just ten of us on the catamaran so plenty of space. The crew was more than fantastic. friendly and helpful. Once on board, the bar opened with unlimited rum punch, beer wine and mixed drinks. Snacks were brought out as well. We made two snorkeling stops. One with sea turtles and one over ship wrecks. Saw plenty of turtles and beautiful fish. We then had a buffet lunch on board that was tasty. We made a beach stop and then sailed back to port. The perfect day. Read Less

We went on Tiami for a sail cat tour - about 6 hours in total. Absolutely wonderful. We went to two snorkel spots and had a bite of lunch on board which was better than anything they had back on the ship. The crew was delightful - as chatty (or not) as you wanted them to be. I had heard that cruise lines tend to cram too many folks on these excursions but didn't feel that to be the case here. Capacity for 70, had about 45. Plenty of shade or sun, depending on what you like. Liked the sail cat so much we are thinking of chartering one specifically for a week. Read Less

We went on the Miami Five Star Catamaran & Turtles snorkeling adventure. The catamaran ride was ok but they took us way out to sea while the other boat that had the other group went much closer to shore. Our boat could not see much of the places they were talking about onshore. They took us to a place to snorkel, gave us masks but no fins and put people in the water with a lot of boat traffic coming in. It was very dangerous. This was just a bad experience overall - way too many people. There were 82 people on our boat. Read Less

We did the half day Tiami tour that included a catamaran ride, snorkeling to see turtles, and a beach stop. It was an action-packed 4 hours, and it was awesome! We were very sunburnt by this time, so we happily sat in the shaded part of the catamaran and enjoyed the views as we sailed around Barbados’ coast. Snorkeling was super fun; although we only saw one sea turtle, we saw a few stingrays which was really cool. And the reef was really pretty. You could tell the place we snorkeled was a high-traffic area, but the pro of that is that it felt safe, with pretty water and everything. And the beach we stopped at for a swim - wow! - it was gorgeous!!! My favorite picture from our whole trip is of this beach. The sand was like a cushion, and the water was so pretty. We loved this tour & would definitely go again! Read Less

This was an exceptional sailing and snorkeling tour, complete with lunch and beverages. We were picked up at the cruise port and driven maybe five minutes to the boat. Gina, Aaron, Kieron, and Amery were so attentive! We had two snorkeling stops, one with a turtle, and the other with an abundance of colorful fish, a reef, and a sunken boat. Morning appetizers were served, later followed by a hot buffet lunch onboard, while anchored at a beautiful beach. Here some went swimming, some snorkeled, and some just enjoyed sunbathing. A rain squall found us on the way back. The crew put up some shelter, but many went into the cabin for the short duration. Calabaza II is a beautiful catamaran, and I recommend the outing with no hesitation. Snorkeling gear was included for anyone needing it. The guides took hundreds of pictures onboard and in the water, which were made available to us online. A fabulous day! Read Less
