          A lovely way to spend a day in Barbados
          Really lovely day out on the water. This was a smaller catamaran so I was a bit anxious that there wouldn’t be enough room but fitted 9 people and the two crew very well. We had a nice sail out to the snorkeling area and then swam with turtles and snorkeled on a reef with tropical fish. The boat then parked up near a beach and we had lunch and another swim. Crew were brilliant and looked after us really well. They provided swim supports as needed and guided us in the water to the best spots to see fish. Lunch was delicious and we had snacks and drinks throughout the day. I would recommend this experience.

          Really great trip - highly recommend.
          This was a lovely cruise. Three crew to twelve people so the three kids felt safe at all times. We did see some turtles despite the weather not being kind, the food was amazing, we were well looked after. The cost was in a lovely clean condition and we had three lovely stops. I would highly recommend to both couples and families alike. The transfer from hotel was also timely and smooth.

          This was the third time we have been with Graham and his crew...absolutely amazing time and they couldn't be more welcoming and helpful. The crew help to find you turtles and fish to swim with, constantly offer drinks and the lunchtime food is amazing. I couldn't recommend them enough

          Great way to spend a few hours on the beautiful water
          Graham, the owner of the Stiletto, was so responsive from the time I first made an enquiry with him. I was specifically looking for a catamaran that was smaller and not a party boat. The Stiletto fit my requirements beautifully and delivered on every aspect. Great captain (Graham), fantastic and hard working crew (Andrew and Richard), plentiful food and drinks, and lots of time in the water. I enjoyed both snorkeling stops and the post-lunch swim. It was also really nice to sail for a while. I met some wonderful people on the cruise as well. Pick up and drop off from my accommodation was professional and on time. I highly recommend Action Charters for a few glorious hours on the water while in Barbados.

          Cruise passengers, especially those short on time, this is the shore excursion for you!
          Super professional, true to their word, and fun! Our cruise ship was scheduled to leave Barbados at 2:00p, and 'All Aboard' was at 1:30. Since the 3 hour (no lunch) version of this excursion leaves a 10:00 we knew it was going to be tight, but we really wanted to get into the water, so we took the chance, and the crew of Action Charters made it happen! We were picked up promptly at 9:30 outside the main gate of the Barbados cruise terminal, and by 10:00 we were underway. Although there was an 'Open Bar' it is not a 'Booze Cruise', and there were several families on board. We snorkeled at 2 sites, one with a sandy bottom, where we swam with multiple turtles, and one above 2 shallow-water wrecks. The wrecks were covered with nice corals which attracted a large variety of brightly colored fish. We then went under sail, and sailed to the other side of the cruise port and landed at a beach where those of us who had to catch our cruise were let off and immediately met by a cab driver who took us directly back to our ship, which we boarded with 10 minutes to spare. Granted, this was cutting it close, but we had a great time, and absolutely made the most of our short stay!

          Snorkelling
          I went with my two granddaughters. It was their first time and they loved it. The lunch was very good but I'm not keen on swimming with lots of people to see the turtles etc. However I do realise that the boats need the numbers. The crew were great & fun and one of them looked after a very elderly man in the water so carefully that he was able to swim too.

          Cruise and snorkel
          This was a very fun tour. The guides were great. When we were in the water they pointed out what we should be looking at and always made sure we were safe. They lunch and drinks served were very good and the catamaran cruise was very relaxing with a beautiful tour of that side of the island

          Fabulous day sailing & snorkelling
          This day was well organised from start to finish. Booking was easy, pick up arrangements and communication was clear. Everything went to plan. Graham and his crew were outstanding. The snorkelling was great we saw turtles, tarpon, swam over several wrecks to see many species of fish including several large rays. Lunch was very good, the drinks flowed and we had a great time. We ended with a swim at Sandy Bay before sailing back. Awesome, thanks for a great memorable day guys.

          Top day out! Loved our day with Captain Graham and crew. Saw turtles and plenty of fish during 3 hour cruise
          Would recommend the 3 hour cruise which gave plenty of time to swim with turtles and see wrecks and plenty of colourful fish

          Great day trip in Barbados
          What a great time! Captain Graham’s crew were awesome and professional and so much fun. Snorkeling was amazing and just as advertised - saw a number of sea turtles, sting rays, and oh so many fish. The wreckages were amazing as well. The cruise up the coast was relaxing and a nice party atmosphere - the drinks were flowing! The buffet lunch was tasty and had a good selection of Barbados food. To top it off. Captain Graham arranged for a birthday cake for my 17 year old daughter that made her day. A great memory!

          A lovely day in paradise!
          We booked a 5 hour catamaran tour with Action Charters. The meeting place outside the cruise port was clearly described in their email and their driver arrived on time and drove us the 10 minutes to the dock area where we boarded the boat. The crew was very friendly and kept the passengers well supplied with various tasty beverages, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic. We were also provided delicious banana bread as well as a fantastic buffet lunch (my favorite was the macaroni and cheese dish). We also stopped at several lovely snorkeling spots and there was plenty of equipment available for whatever type of swimming of snorkeling activities you chose to enjoy. It was a really lovely day and exceeded expectations. We made it back to the cruise port right at the scheduled time. My one small criticism is that it was a bit crowded onboard the catamaran, but pretty much typical. The cost of the tour seemed very reasonable. I would certainly recommend this activity.

        I booked this trip from home rather than pay for the cruise trip as I hoped it would be more personal. I was therefore concerned that it would all pan out.
        It was the best day of the cruise. We arrived early at the collection point but there was a young man there already who greeted us, explained that we were a bit early and that he might have to disappear to do another pick up and not to worry - he would be back. True to his word he came back and again made contact. What a lovely young man he was. Very helpful. We were taken to Bridgetown, introduced to the catamaran owner and proceeded on board. Both the Captain and his one man crew were brilliant, accommodating and entertaining. We swam and snorkelled with the turtles, swam and snorkelled over two wrecks and then sailed under sail up the coast. We had elected to do only a 3 hour tour so were dropped off early at Holetown where a taxi driver was waiting to take us back to the cruise port. It was a wonderful day out and we thoroughly recommend it. The young man who met us at the cruise terminal initially was extremely helpful considering we arrived there at 8.30 - a full hour before our assigned pickup.

        Booked this for my birthday that fell during our honeymoon and had an awesome time! There are several of these tours in Barbados, but I selected this one because it checked the boxes of sailing, snorkeling with turtles, and a local lunch/drinks (which is what I wanted to do) and there were less people on the boat than some of the other popular options.

        The crew somehow kept track of everyone, despite other boats also being at the first stop to snorkel with the turtles and offered assistance and extra guidance to those who are not confident swimmers. Being a stronger swimmer, I was pleased that my husband and I were able to snorkel and explore at our own pace without feeling herded. While we were sailing, they kept the drinks flowing to everyone and we all seemed to have a great time, but it wasn't a "rum runner party" spring break kind of feel.

        We got in some good sailing time when they took us up the west coast up towards Holetown where we anchored, had a Bajan lunch, took photos, and snorkeled and swam around for a good amount of time until it was time to set sail back to the harbor. When the crew found out it was my birthday, they blared the Birthday Song by Stevie Wonder (which I learned is way more common than the traditional Happy Birthday in the Caribbean) and everyone sang and got into it.

        All in all, I had a perfect birthday thanks to this crew and the group that was onbard!

        My daughter and I had the most wonderful experience on the catamaran Stiletto last week. Graham and his crew were very professional, very knowledgeable about the area and the marine life and most of all were fun to be with. Despite the rain, which is rare, we had a great time swimming with turtles and an Eagle Ray and then went on to swim over two wrecks abundant with fish and interesting sights. The lunch was delicious and the drinks also and we had interesting chats with all the crew members about their time during the pandemic - Sean and Eric in particular. On the way back into Bridgetown Graham played "Raindrops keep falling on my head" and "It's raining men" as the theme of the day! A really fab experience - thank you. Ros & Kat.

        firstly i booked sunday evening for monday and Graham quickly confirmed. pick ups & drop offs worked perfectly. the island is quite expensive imo so my expectations were low on what we’d get for the money but honestly this was the money best spent so far, well worth the 90usd/pp for 5hours. easily. felt like full day and the experiences were lovely. Graham and his staff were amazing, super kind and friendly. dishing out drinks and playing music but also looking after everyone so we didnt feel like “cattle”, it was very personable and nice. i didn’t expect much from lunch either but again i was surprised as it was big and there was enough for a vegetarian to get full too. plus tasty! i warmly recommend this experience to everyone, just remember your sun screen!

        The best day of our trip without a doubt. We had a fantastic time with Graham, Andrew & Shay; swimming with turtles, snorkelling the shipwrecks and swimming at Sandy Lane Beach. Andrew was great during the shipwreck snorkel, giving us an overview of the wrecks and helping us to identify the different fish and coral species while Graham captained the catamaran, joined us for the turtle swim and kept everyone safe.

        The food was exceptionally good (especially the coconut cake!), the drinks were flowing (there was a huge selection to choose from!) and the whole vibe was a great mix of chilled and fun.

        Honestly the best day trip we’ve been on, from the moment we were collected from our hotel lobby to the moment we got back. We’d do it all over again in a heartbeat.

        Excellent day out on a small catamaran with a great lunch, and plenty of rum punch, beer and other drinks flowing throughout. The crew were attentive to keeping us supplied with drinks but equally safe. Two crew members swam with us to the wrecks and helped those inexperienced in snorkelling. I don't usually tip on a prepaid trip but this was excellent value for money and I broke my rule. The bus driver who picked us up from our hotel was equally good, and the experience was lubricated by not having to drive to the Bridgetown pick up point.

        Had a superb day on the catamaran thanks to Graham and Dylan. Very friendly and a memorable day! Very attentive with drinks and the lunch was superb.
        Snippets of commentary on the way to learn a bit more about the island.

        Saw and swam with the turtles, the wrecks were great and the sail along the coast to Sandy Lane Beach was a real treat.

        After experiencing the day, it was incredible value for a truly memorable experience.

        Would highly recommend Stiletto cruises as the smaller boat made it more intimate.

        Thank you Graham/Dylan

        The driver picked us up on time. Drove us to the boat dock. We boarded the catamaran and were given a few instructions/rules for our approximately 4 hour adventure, there weren’t many. There were unlimited drinks, rum punch, beer, soda, water, etc. Our 1st stop was snorkeling with the turtles!! Amazing….face to face with the most beautiful turtles. Saw some sting rays, and a huge assortment of tropical fish. Andrew (the ocean whisperer) gave such a captivating lesson on the coral reef, the shipwreck, and the tropical fish. Then came lunch, a great spread….. fish, chicken, salads, rice and peas, macaroni pie, and garlic bread. Nice day with a great crew. I thoroughly enjoyed the adventure.

        Thanks Karen for this wonderful review. The time of the cruise is 10 to 3 so not 4 hours. Time flies when you having a great time out sailing on the water in the Caribbean sea. I know we will see you again and again in the near future. Cheers Graham
