Best time ever on Stiletto IV. Crew were fun yet professional. Transfer was on time and comfortable. Lunch was delicious and offered any beverage you wanted.
We loved snorkeling over the wreck and swimming with turtles in Carlisle Bay. Truly loved sailing & motoring in the open sea

We booked the 5 hour catamaran lunch cruise for 3rd March with Action Charters. The email communication with Graham before our trip was excellent. We were picked up outside the port and payment was taken on the catamaran. All very efficient. The cruise was first class. Andrew and the crew were really fun and friendly and looked after everyone so well. The buffet lunch was excellent and varied and the drinks flowed - whatever you wanted. The whole excursion was fun and very well organised. We could not have asked for more. We would certainly recommend to anyone and next time we are in Barbados will definitely repeat this cruise. It was simply fab!

I had two friends come over for Christmas and the New Year from Virginia. They very kindly invited me to go on a cruise with them on Stiletto as a Christmas Present. I had hurt my left elbow and could not bend it so was deciding whether or not to go but in the end I did. I was so glad that I made that decision. From start to finish it was the best Catamaran cruise I had been on. Not too many people but they were all very friendly. First to Carlisle Bay to snorkel with the turtles and then moved a bit to snorkel over the wrecks. Then it was off to the West Coast where we anchored and had an amazing lunch. I wish I could find out who does the food as it was absolutely delicious. Then more swimming and snorkelling and then a slow sail back to Bridgetown. I would definitely recommend this cruise. Graham and his crew were helpful, friendly and a mine of information. 10 out of 10.

Fantastic trip, and crew. When we snorkled, Graham, or Andrew told us ABOUT what we were seeing. The what's and why's rather than..."that's coral" Capt Graham found not just Turtles an Ray's, but a couple of Tarpon about 4 ft. Long! We heard a bit of history of the shipwrecks and marine park. And even how old the coral buildup was. Lots of variety of small and medium fish. Then, up the sails to the West Coast, and anchored off for a delicious lunch. Nobody went thirsty. But it was a 'Pleasant-drink' group, and not like a frat party!
Lunch was delicious with salads, fish, chicken, and the best macaroni pie on the island. Too soon it was back to Bridgetown. 5 house passed in a flash...with a month's worth of memories. Thanks, and Bravo Zulu Graham.

Stiletto raised the bar for private cruises in Barbados. It was hands down, the event to make our trip. We booked a private catamaran for 25 friends in the afternoon into evening and the vibes were there from jump. They were accommodating, the drinks were flowing and the food - the foodd!! Omg, it was absolutely delicious. We had A TIME! We will not be booking with anyone else in future. 10/10 - we WILL come again! PS - we had a party on that boat so if you’re boring, sorry but your cruise will be boring too :P

Myself, the mrs and 6 friends all booked with captain Graham, Andrew and the guys. We had a fantastic day, snorkelling, swimming, and seeing the island. The lunch was really good, and lots of it, and great drinks, ice cold beer, rum punches ets, wine with dinner, very well looked after, many thanks guys, great day, and great value!
Steve Bolt, United Kingdom - September 16, 2022
Had a great day out on Stilleto. Graeme and his team looked after all the guests. Gave us loads of info as we made our way along the coast. Coaxed some turtles and a giant stingray to make an appearance. We also had a lovely meal supplied on the boat. Great day out.
Thx Graeme and his crew

We went for a 5 hour private catamaran trip up the West coast of Barbados with Captain Randal and cannot recommend it and him highly enough!
We went swimming with turtles up close and personal which was amazing
We went snorkelling around ship wrecks
We sailed along the beautiful coastline
We stopped for lunch (and drinks!)
We jumped off and swam and visited some beaches
And then reluctantly returned. Randal was a great host and we had a great time!

Captain Graham made our chartering experience one of a kind! He was extremely accommodating to my study abroad class from Indiana University on our 5-hour charter. He and one of his crew members, Christopher, were fun to spend time with and had a great sense of humor that kept us laughing! The buffet and open bar were great, and he made a special request for my gluten allergy which was very much appreciated. The sea turtle spot was something none of us will forget!! Highly recommend booking with Captain Graham on the stiletto to anyone visiting or living in Barbados!

When I tell you we had a great time “we had a great time. Graham was very personal has a great sense of humor . Never seemed bothered and even interacted with Scuba diving he had a great playlist and the workers were very attentive. Would def do it again

We booked a 5-hour private charter with Graham (Captain) on the Stiletto catamaran for 12 people on a Sunday and had a sensational time. Graham and his crew provided transportation from our hotel to the docks and had the boat ready to go upon arrival. We went snorkeling with turtles, where we saw 5-6 turtles, and also snorkeled around some shipwrecks. The snorkeling component lived up to the hype and everyone in our party was very pleased. After snorkeling we had a 2-3 hour cruise up the coast with an endless supply of adult beverages and a delicious lunch. We also caught a few fish off the side of the boat. The price for the entire charter was very affordable. This experience was one of the highlights of the entire trip and we'd highly recommend trusting Graham and his crew for a relaxing and entertaining adventure.
Pete and Sandie, United Kingdom - February 13, 2022
We took the boat trip today and have booked again for next weekend! The whole package was the perfect mix of fun and professionalism, really relaxed but safe atmosphere, famed Bajan hospitality with food and drink aplenty, and includes pickup and dropoff at your hotel.
The snorkelling stops were great, turtles and eagle rays appearing right on cue, and thousands of brightly coloured fish around the wrecks, all expertly described by the hosts.
Exciting sailing experience right up the coast then anchored up for a tasty and well prepared lunch, followed by leisurely swim by the beach.
Banana bread and coconut cake treats were to die for.
We can't praise the staff to highly: so friendly, expert, and organised. Everything's provided and good quality. Five hours disappeared really quickly! Can't wait for the next trip.
Julia Walker, United Kingdom - August 25, 2020
We took a 5hr trip with Sean and Sheldon today, a group of 6 with 2 teenagers, we had the best day we could have imagined. At very short notice they organised a pick up for us. They were really friendly and knowledgable. Snorkelling was fantastic with the turtles. Lunch was really good, plenty of drinks throughout the trip. Would definitely recommend these guys. Thanks for an amazing day x
Jan and Mark Jones, United Kingdom - March 9, 2020
We took the 5.5 hour trip on Stilletto on 29th February and what a fantastic day we had!! There were just 12 of us on board including the crew. Sheldon and Shaun. We were in Barbados on the P and O Cruise Brittania but none of the other passengers had come from the Cruise ship and it was a lovely friendly international mix ! The day was extremely relaxed and we felt really looked after by Sheldon and Shaun, who couldn't be more accommodating.
Help was offered whenever needed with the snorkelling and everyone felt really safe regardless of previous experience. I was also personally helped by Veronica ,who made sure I was comfortable with the snorkel and able to experience everything. Generous drinks were offered throughout the trip together with delicious cake ,yummy fresh mango and a fabulous hot buffet dinner. Music played giving a great atmosphere.
The snorkelling was just the best and we saw turtles, sting rays and simply hundreds of tropical fish, in a myriad of sizes and colours. It was an unforgettable day. Thank you so much!!
Scott Richardson, United States - February 16, 2020
This day was the best and most relaxing day of our two week cruise! Captain Sheldon and Eric made sure we had everything we needed including food and drinks, they were extremely accommodating and our needs were always the highest priority! The turtle swim was incredible and the snorkeling and the sail up the coast were so relaxing and enjoyable! I highly recommend this catamaran company to you if you want to have a relaxing day on the ocean where you don't have to worry about anything!
Jeff, United States - July 4, 2019
My family and I booked a private charter on the Super Cats catamaran during our cruise excursion time while on Barbados. Everyone agreed this was the best part of our entire cruise. Having the boat to ourselves created the perfect family experience. We saw turtles and stingrays during our snorkeling stops. The shipwrecks were amazing because they were so close to the surface. Our captain Randal and his mate C.J. were awesome. They couldn't have made the adventure any better. From the time we found our taxi driver in the port area to the ride back to the cruise ship, we were taken care of every step of the way. Thank you Action Charters for the perfect end to our Caribbean cruise!!
The Baxter Family, United Kingdom - December 20, 2019
A wonderful day out with Randal - fabulously looked after, lovely lunch and beverages and the cat sailed beautifully pub to Sandy Lane. Would highly recommend a private charter to any family.
Mike, United Kingdom - November 16, 2019
Stiletto you never fail to perform and show us the best time ever. The treat of the holiday. What a brilliant day out. Keep it up guys. Thank you. Mike
Dominic Rossiter, United Kingdom - June 9, 2019
We went on the 5 hour cruise to swim with turtles and then snorkelling and lunch.
Experience was great, Sheldon and Eric kept us entertained and well-fed and watered...hopefully Sheldon will be able to reclaim Sheldon-Ville someday...
Couldnâ€™t recommend Acton Charters enough, we were on Stiletto which seemed much better than some of the bigger boats around where it appeared your experience might be spoiled by the much larger group numbers.
Val Bradford, United Kingdom - May 1, 2019
10 of us on a cruise booked this trip from home. Easy to book and Graham replied to my queries very promptly. What a brilliant day we had, the crew were amazing and the food and drink plentiful and great quality. Loved swimming with turtles and rays and the crew were so paitient with the less confident swimmers/snorklers. The boat was really nice and we were picked up and returned to the port. Best day of our holidays, thank you so much. Would highly recommend.
