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

Perfect day! 12 adults on a beautiful 62 foot catamaran (we chose no kids tour), fantastic snacks/meal and a premium open bar from moment we boarded. 3 crew members and Captain took care of our every need.

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

No sea turtles that day but we did see some whales and some beautiful fish. The buffet lunch was good. I think next time we will do the 3 hour tour instead of the 5 and try to hit up the beaches, which looked beautiful. Read Less

Though we don’t scuba we really enjoyed the excursion. It was to see turtles and lunch was included. Nobody warned us that we had to allow time to get a shuttle to the area where tour met so many people arrived late.We had some periods of rain and rough seas so a few people got sick. It was great fun when the crew got the sea turtles close enough for those of us on board to see them. It was too rough for the beach stop though we thought it would be one where the catamaran beached but it wasn’t so even if there was one we would have had to swim far to get there so no towels to sit on and you’d need to be a strong swimmer..we weren’t warned.. Also we were due back onboard at 3:30 but the catamaran didn’t dock until 3:15, then we had to take bus back to pier and get shuttle to ship. Very poor timing. We were late. Read Less

Lovely big Catamaran, staff were excellent, and although there were not enough seats for everyone, lot of people were happy to sit on the trampoline. Just right length of stops, and we went to a bay where there were loads of turtles which was lovely, as we were able to swim right alongside them. Decent buffet lunch and unlimited drinks. Read Less

Positives: fantastic crew (four of them), who were incredibly knowledgeable, very hard-working, and all with great senses of humour; unlimited bar; delicious local buffet lunch served onboard (amaaaazing banana bread!); gorgeous day out (super hot -- sunscreen is a must!); plenty of shade onboard Negatives: boat was very crowded; it's a long walk from the ship to the bus (but only a short bus ride to the catamaran); we only got to spend about 15 minutes with the turtles - and even then, we only saw two, which were drawn to the catamaran as they were being fed by the crew (a bit artificial, and no free diving was permitted) Read Less

Catamaran sail, snorkel with turtles and lunch. Met at port by Tiami catamaran cruises, drove us to the pier,and boarded smoothly. Non alcoholic refreshments provided before snorkeling in 2 places. You could remain onboard if you liked, (I did) and enjoyed the beautiful scenery. Third stop was a brief beach stop, which was very beautiful, provided time to stroll down the soft sand. A wonderful lunch was served after re-boarding, and alcoholic drinks, coffee, tea, water provided. Cruised back to pier, and shuttled to ship. Great crew, and a wonderful day! Read Less
