The 5 hour catamaran trip on 'Imagine' was one of our best days in Barbados. It was a beautiful boat which felt uncrowded with 16 guests and 3 crew. Swimming with turtles and snorkelling over the wrecks teeming with fish in Carlisle Bay were amazing experiences. We also enjoyed the sail up the west coast with places of interest pointed... More

When on holiday we always like to hop on a boat round the island we're visiting & we usually like to aim for the smaller boats to avoid the large party boats rammed with people. So we were pretty happy with the "Imagine" cat for max 14 people. It got even better when we arrived to find that there were... More

2nd trip on Bolador and it's an amazing experience ... the Owners, Crew and the Catamaran get a 10 out of 10 from Us ... they really cannot do anymore to make your Day more perfect. Can't wait to book with them again on next years holiday ... try them for yourselves and you will not be disappointed 😎👍🐠🐢

So I wanted to do a boat trip that gave the chance to swim with turtles, I had looked on the internet and priced a number of the boats up, prior to booking I spoke to the guide at our hotel turtle beach who suggested this boat trip. I was booking for a group of 6 and wanted to ensure... More

3 hour tour was wonderful. Staff were very helpful especially for those of us who had never snorkeled before or were nervous swimmers. Swimming with turtles was amazing, and the tropical fish so beautiful. Lots of fun, good music and the best rum punch!

Booked a shorter half day tour with Bolador to include snorkelling on a reef and swimming with turtles. People working for Bolador are their real asset - Charlie and Tre were absolutely superb hosts. My wife is was a little nervous snorkelling (having only just learned to snorkel a few days previously) and Tre was brilliant at helping her out... More

This was a fabulous trip as Bolador guarantee no more than 14 people on the boat and we had 9. In addition the boat was upgraded to Imagine and with marvellous crew of Charlie and Adrian we set off. We had 3 stops for swimming and snorkling with one being a wreck. The highlight was swimming with the turtles of... More

Captain Charles, Adrian and Shadell - we salute you, what a great day you gave us. A group of us booked a catamaran (21/09) and were lucky enough to get a lovely boat with a wonderful crew. One of our party was a bit nervous, and the guys could not have been more helpful and understanding, helping to ensure she... More

From the moment we stepped on the bus to take us to the mooring, we felt very welcomed. When we got to the the mooring, we were told we were to go on 'Imagine' which was the smaller boat but more nicely equipped. There were just 11 on this trip but Bolador limit numbers anyway. On the boat, you are... More
