Small Cats Catamaran Cruises offers a range of day cruises for guests on its sleek catamaran. These are intimate cruises, and are limited to 12 persons on board for a comfortable and personalised experience on the water. We offer a 3-hour cruise, a 5-hour cruise, and private chartered cruises.

Small Cats provides an incredible experience along the gorgeous West Coast of Barbados, hosted by a welcoming and professional crew. This unique tour includes snorkelling with friendly sea turtles and swimming over a sunken shipwreck with many tropical fish. It also includes unlimited drinks, sun and shade, and an authentic sailing adventure. Our 5-hour cruise includes a delicious buffet lunch, which is served along one of the island's beautiful beaches that are selected specifically for swimming. All cruises offer transportation to and from the catamaran for hotels and other accommodations along the West and South Coasts. For more details on our cruises and how to book, call or email us today.

We set sail after being picked up by bus from our resort. We deliberately chose Small Cats as the sight of rum-fuelled dancing and crowded decks did not appeal. There were only four of us on the trip which was brilliant. Edward was a marvellous host and we learnt a great deal about the country and the wildlife from him.... More

There are two or three parts to the excursion depending on which package you choose. Also you can choose from one of the larger or smaller catamarans depending on your preference. The first part of the excursion is the turtle snorkel spot, popular because bait is used to bring the turtle in/close. Saw many turtles, some very close at times... More

Great crew, great food and drink. A wonderfully relaxing way to spend a day, in and on the water. The turtles are magical, the snorkeling is great, and the crew are just the very best!

I was very interested in a trip on a smaller catamaran. I have been on large ones before. I have some sailing experience, and was less interested on being on a boat with a large group of people. I was disappointed when I received a message the night before that they were canceling and would have to move us to... More

We did the tour with lunch and had an amazing time. There were only six of us on the tour plus our captain Edward. Edward was a great guide and very helpful to a couple of us who were less confident in the water. The boat is equipped with snorkels and all sorts of buoyancy aides so if you're a... More

Very good tour, with few people avoiding the crowd on stops to swim with turtles. Food and drinks on board were very good! Polite and pleasant people to receive and guide us.

Loved it! Edward our skipper was awesome! 3 couples took the 5 hr. snorkel trip and it was great! A couple of us had not snorkeled before and aren't great swimmers, but Edward really made us feel comfortable in the water and did a great job with us seniors(70+)! The lunch was great, weather great, absolutely perfect day! Take your... More

This was something of a highlight, having turned down another Cat Cruise when told there would be 80 people on the cat - (capacity 140!) 4 of us went at a lower price on a small cat (capacity 12)with an excellent young skipper who chatted and joked. The Cat sailed like a rocket - the same speed as the big... More

Small cats operates small catamarans which offer an intimate experience. We had 7 passengers and 2 crew. . If you like large boats and loads of people then this is not for you.
