I struggled debating whether to give this company/lunch cruise excursion 3 or 4 stars. I was just on their boat a week ago, yet I cannot remember the crew at all, even though I have a pretty good memory. I definitely remember it was only 1 turtle as soon as I got in the water, and it was swimming away... More

Thank you for taking time to write your review. It seems to me you had a nice day sailing with Tiami that was spoiled by your experience of "kids everywhere". Typically During the Easter period we have a lot of kids vacationing with there families. Tiami does not oversell our tours in order for our guests to be comfortable. Music... More

We went out on the Reef Runner catamaran, booked through Royal Caribbean and had a blast. Our captain and crew were funny, knowledgeable, and knew where to take us to see turtles and fish. After a few lessons on how to keep the animals safe, we snorkeled in two locations. One was over a shipwreck where we saw so many... More

Fantastic trip, friendly crew, amazing food and rum punch included!! Swimming with Turtles for the first time was an incredible experience, the crew do all in their power to ensure you see some. Also a great trip for seeing some nice beaches and spots around the island.

I was extremely disappointed in this excursion!!! The turtles are completely surrounded by people from multiple boats. They can't even surface for air, because people are touching and kicking them. I feel as though the boats are packed to capacity and there is absolutely no structure. It was complete chaos. I would never recommend this tour to anyone!!!!😨😱😵. Royal Caribbean... More

I sorry to read that your impression of this tour was "turtle torture". Tiami is the oldest day charter company in Barbados with high international standards for doing business. We observe all set rules and standards in dealing with marine life. The tour you booked from your cruise ship was called "Swim with Turtles". There are multiple areas along the... More

We would try another company next time. This is the first catamaran cruise we did not enjoy. Basically ignored by the crew, loud group, I did not eat the food but was told it was not good.

I am sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your experience with us. By reading your review it seems that you were put off by the large group onboard that was celebration a birthday. When we have groups onboard the tone of the cruise is very lively with a party atmosphere. It seemed you were looking for a quiet... More

Expecting to have a lovely day out turned into a fantastic experience. The friendly welcome on a catamaran that was not over crowded, we set sail to our first drop off point where we experienced swimming with turtles. Then off to a lovely reef for a snorkel and fun in the sea. A lovely buffet. The crew were friendly and... More

Set out from Bridgetown and sailed to a wreck and looking for turtles. Your in the water with the boats crew so safety is good. Life jackets are given and you can only swim with them. The boat staff are amazing and totally amusing. The bar is free but be very aware of the rum punch. Lunch was gorgeous. Mac... More

We were on the Excellence, and the staff made the day an excellent experience. The boat is in great shape, very clean and well maintained. The crew made sure everyone was happy and they served a nice lunch and provided drinks! They took is to 2 spots to snorkel and 1 spot to swim. Looking forward to going again!

Personable, attentive crew, great food, drinks flowing, lively music, refreshing breezes and the gorgeous sea - what more can one ask for? When you're on the deck, looking out at the ocean you can't help but think "this is the life".

My friend and I found their flyer at the supermarket in Holetown and they charged USD90 for 5 hrs, including sailing, free alcohol, free lunch and snokelling with the seaturtle. There were about 4 staffs working on the cruise and they were super professional, fun and super good service. They also provided free pick up and drop off.
