The captain asked us where we would like to go and planned the trip with three stops. (Snorkels and masks provided for snorkelling. ) There were 40... More

We went on this cruise because of the snorkeling,were very disappointed that we were only taken to 2 snorkeling spots and only in the water about 20 mins at each spot, then the rest of the time we were sailing. Thought we were going to be beached to have dinner, but no, we were anchored out and dinner appeared from... More

We have sailed on catamarans in many parts of the world but none have been as good of an experience as Cool Runnings!!! They make sure that your time with them is something you will remember for a long time. We were with Captain Eddie (loved him) and a crew of four for the snorkeling trip with lunch. They are...

I can't say enough about this excursion. The entire trip was perfect and every single one of the staff members was amazing. If you are going to Barbados, skip the cruise excursions and book with Cool Runnings Catamaran. The food was great too....best mac and cheese I've ever had, and the chicken.. to die for. I brought a family of... More

I had an amazing time with Cool Runnings - definitely the best catamaran cruise company in Barbados! Ryan and the crew were hilarious and even when it rained kept the party going. Wish I had done this trip more than once on my holiday!

I cannot say how much we enjoyed this trip. The staff could not have done anything more or different to impress. The food & drinks was exquisite. They entertained us. Snorkeling was excellent with the staff with us at all times and kept eye on everyone and catered to all different levels of experience of the customers. I would say... More

This was a 2.5 star excursion in my opninon, but you can't do half point ratings. Transport was rude at pickup. Checkin was an unorganized mess of a line. There were so many people on the lunch cruise and I think CR had at least 2 boats out last Tuesday. If you are looking for a loud, crowded, rambunctious party... More

We did this tour on our stop on Barbados April 14, 2017. We were a family of 11. We did an immediate stop right after leaving to do a wreck snorkel (we weren't really ready to go in the water because it was so early but, did it anyway and it was a nice snorkeling spot). We then got back... More

If you want the best day out of your holiday then look no further! The crew are so friendly and fun, the drinks are plentiful, the food is delicious and the locations are amazing. We've been on Cool Runnings a few times now and it just gets better. Keep up the good work guys!
