    What to Expect
    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.

    Response from ElTigre2000, Owner at Barbados Catamaran Snorkeling Cruise
    Responded 5 days ago
    We are very sorry you had a transport issue in the morning, but very glad you still had a good day out on the boat. I have investigated the pickup problem and found a few issues that seemed to cause the problem. In your booking you indicated to be picked up at Lighthouse Bay Condos. We used this info in Google Maps and up popped a place called Lighthouse Look Apartments, so this is where the driver was sent to pickup. She was there for 30 minutes trying to find you. We called the number provided but couldn't get an answer. After all this time we instructed the driver to continue as all the other pickups are now very late. Now after the fact I have looked through Google and found two places with similar names one is Lighthouse Look Apartments and the other is The Residences of Lighthouse Bay. Both have different names to what was entered in the booking. It appears that there was a miscommunication about where you are staying and that has caused the issue. With regards to the driver not apologizing I will say that is not like her. She is extremely courteous and accommodating (hence spending 30 minutes trying to find you). I believe that she and everyone else in the bus thought it was your fault for not being at the pickup point where the bus was sent and therefore expected the apologies were to come from you. Now that I have reviewed the entire situation it is quite clear that it all came down to miscommunication of the pickup point and I understand why you thought the apologies should have come from the driver. I am assuming that The Residences of Lighthouse Bay is where you were expecting the pickup. This is a new place and we have never picked up there before. We are very sorry about your pickup experience for our tour and will try very hard for this not to happen in the future. I am very happy that the main part of this excursion, the catamaran ride, went well and you enjoyed it to the point that you still gave a 5 star review. We hope to see you again on board our catamaran tour.
