Action Stations Barbados Style.

Today was action packed! After another extremely tasty breakfast buffet we made our way to the hotel lobby where our air conditioned coach awaited. After a 15 minute transfer we arrived in the shallow draft port of Bridgetown to board the ‘Tiami Catamaran’, a luxurious and spacious catamaran for a 5 hour lunch cruise.

We sailed slowly out in to the Ocean to the sounds of soft reggae music and the advantage of an open bar and attentive, fun and friendly crew. The Catamaran made two stops offering the opportunity to swim and snorkel with the stunning turtles!! This was an opportunity not to be missed and everyone on board was very excited to experience this…

After the snorkel stops a typical caribbean lunch buffet was served on board; flying fish, chicken, rice, mac & chesse and fresh salads were laid out for all to enjoy and wine was served with the lunch.

Our last stop was a beach stop, allowing for swimming, lazing on deck or a wonder along the shore before the crew called ‘all aboard’ hoisted the sails and started to make a speedy return to the port area. The music continued and of course did the open bar… It was rum punches all round.

I would recommend a catamaran experience to anyone staying in Barbados for the amazing turtle experience and the exhilarating sailing opportunities. The Tiami catamaran is excellent value for money for all that’s included and can be pre booked through Ponders Travel for your day of choice whilst holidaying on the island.

This evening we ventured in to Holetown, the local town to the West Coast offering an array of family run restaurants and bars, we opted for a pizzeria which turned out to be an excellent choice! After a few cocktails  in the lively piano bar we got a taxi back to the Tamarind for a few nightcaps at the bar. A wedding party has arrived today with the event taking place on the beach tomorrow evening so we are looking forward to seeing that and reporting back – what an amazing setting for your perfect day!?
