Exclusively St James
Duration: Half Day
Set sail on an unforgettable voyage around some of the most breathtaking coastline in the Caribbean during your holiday in Barbados. This relaxing cruise will take you across the sparkling turquoise waters of the Caribbean Sea in comfort and style on a beautiful catamaran. Sunbathe on isolated beaches, snorkel in crystal clear lagoons and swim with sea turtles. This is a day of pure relaxation in paradise.
Climb aboard your sleek, 50-foot catamaran and relax as the friendly crew ensure that your trip is as fun and enjoyable as possible. Catamarans are the ideal vessels for sailing the Caribbean, providing comfort, shade and spacious seating. Your journey starts with a refreshing Bucks Fizz and delicious hors d’oeuvres as we set sail across the calm azure waters to a beautiful secluded bay. Marvel at the breathtaking island scenery as we cruise along Barbados’ West Coast, also known as the “gold coast” or “platinum coast”; past lush greenery and endless stretches of pristine white-sand beaches, fringed with swaying coconut palms.
We will stop and anchor at an idyllic deserted beach where you can enjoy free time to relax and sunbathe on powdery soft white sands or stroll along the beach looking for beautiful Caribbean shells. Cool down and take a dip in the alluring crystal clear waters, or grab some snorkeling equipment and explore the natural beauty under the sea.
Barbados is a world-class destination for diving and snorkeling, offering excellent visibility, underwater caves, intriguing shipwrecks and vibrant coral reefs which are teeming with marine life. Marvel at the vivid colours and diversity of this breathtaking natural aquarium as you discover a wide variety of corals species and swim amongst schools of tropical fish of all colours, shapes and sizes. The diversity on one single coral reef will amaze and delight you.
You will also get the chance to swim with sea turtles in their natural habitat. Barbados is home to a healthy population of hawksbill and leatherback turtles. Once endangered by over-fishing, these magnificent creatures are fortunately now protected and monitored throughout the Island. Turtles are very sociable and tend to stay in the same area, which makes it easy to find them. They can often be seen playing and feeding along the inshore reefs. Watch expert staff feeding the turtles, bringing them close to you. This is an awe-inspiring experience not to be missed.
After enjoying a sumptuous barbeque on the beach, we will set sail back along the coast. An open bar is available throughout the cruise, so sit back and relax in the sun with a refreshing Caribbean cocktail, cooled by the tropical breeze. This tour is a wonderful way to enjoy the best of Caribbean island life.
