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!!

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!

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!!

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.

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

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...
Couldn’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.

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.

Yet another fabulous cruise on Stiletto. Thanks to Sheldon, Sean and Eric for a great day on the water. Can't recommend Stiletto highly enough. Thanks Guys once again
Jim Hawthorn, United Kingdom - February 24, 2019
We went out today. Had a great time. Nothing was too much trouble for the crew. Drink and food flowed. We saw the turtles and the wreck and corals as advertised. The music and the commentary were wonderful. Just a great day, thank you.

I can't say enough about our experience with Captain Randel and First mate Gavin! They were professional, informative, courteous and a whole lot of fun. Not sure if anything would have improved this experience except if we stayed longer. They even had birthday cake for the 50 y/o birthday girls! A must do in Barbados!!!
Sheryl Green, United Kingdom - January 26, 2019
Thanks, Graham and to your wonderful crew Captain Sheldon, Sean and Eric for yet another great experience. We have been sailing with you every time we visit the Island for 3 consecutive years and quality of service have always been consistent. Lovey food, great company and smooth cruise! Until next time..

What an amazing day. Captain Sheldon and his crew were fantastic. Captain Sheldon was amazing during the snorkelling and ensured that my 6 year old daughter had in her words 'the best day ever'. Can't recommend this trip and this crew enough. Thanks again for an amazing experience.

What a Blast we all had on Stiletto 4 on Monday 23 April 2018 with Captain Sheldon and his First Officer Crew Eric!!! There were only 13 passengers including us onboard which made it even more memorable as everyone mixed well! From the outset we were offered all manner of refreshing drinks by Eric and Sheldon - beers, rum punches, non alcoholic fruit punches to name but a few which kept coming throughout our 5 hour cruise!
The first snorkelling adventure we had was to see the turtles and sting rays, which was awesome to start the trip! We couldn’t have asked for better weather on the day! Next we were sailing along the west coast past Payne’s Bay up to the Sandy Lane Hotel to again snorkel in the warm Caribbean Sea to see the wrecks, the numerous fish species and the coral reef an unforgettable moment and fun in the water with Sheldon leading the way feeding the fish for us to see and relating information on the spectacles below the waves!
We then returned to the Catamaran for lunch prepared by Eric the Seafaring Chef which again was a delicious offering of Macaroni Pie, Rice, Chicken, Fish, Coleslaw and Salad, which everyone enjoyed enormously! After lunch anchored in Sandy Bay Hotel Bay we had a leisurely swim and bolstered our tans. Then it was time to sail back up the coast to Bridgetown to end a fandabadozy day!
This Catamaran Cruise will remain as a lasting memory of our holiday in Barbados! We would thoroughly recommend anyone coming to this part of the world for a holiday to book for a sail on Stiletto 4 NOT TO BE MISSED even for the YAULDIES (we are all around 70 year old). Thanks once again for a magnificent day to Sheldon and Eric, your Customer Service is second to none!!!

Had a fabulous trip - cruising, sightseeing, swimming with turtles, snorkelling the shipwreck and chatting over a cool drink.
The guys were so friendly and informative and fun to be with.
Would highly recommend this trip - kids absolutely loved it too.
Iain & Tracy Cranston, United Kingdom - January 18, 2018
Sheldon and the 'Seans' gave us a great day out on the water in Stiletto IV - hugely entertaining, friendly and very accommodating. 5 hour trip taking in swimming with turtles, diving on a wreck and sailing past some of the most beautiful shoreline on the island. Home-cooked cakes, lunch on board (chicken curry with rice, fish and pickled green bananas) and an almost continuous supply of rum punch / beer / wine and soft-drinks make this not only the best day-trip on the island, but surely one of the best-value too! Can't recommend strongly enough - if you only do one trip on Barbados - make sure it's this one!
Mike Keleher, Canada - October 28, 2017
We had a wonderful time sailing with Graham and Sean on Stiletto. Even though the day started with torrential rains, we had time to get to know Graham and Sean ,and enjoyed some drinks until the weather turned better. Graham even offered us refunds since the weather was so bad, but we stayed the course and ended up having one of the best times with them. The 3 hour sail was amazing and we would definitely book them again next time we are in Barbados. Thanks again Graham and Sean!

P-Dub, Canada - April 16, 2017
Thanks for a great day on the water. All 20 of us had a blast and appreciated the great service we received from the crew as well as the van driver. The boat was spectacular and the food and drinks (especially the rum punch) were excellent and plentiful. Amazing trip for adults and kids of all ages. Highly recommend your company to anyone interested in chartering a trip for a day. Customer service is obviously a priority for your group.

Absolutely fabulous cruise! Thanks so much to Sheldon, Shawn and Eric-our amazing hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed the coral reefs, ship wreck and swimming with turtles. Lunch was delicious and we were totally spoiled by the stafff. We had an amazing time and highly recommend this Stiletto cruise to everyone! It was the highlight of our family trip!
Fatema, United States - February 21, 2017
We sailed with Randall & Preacher and the experience was absolutely amazing. From swimming with the turtles and fish to going over the ship wrecks. The tour was fun and relaxing. Great experience of the island from a boat. Highly recommend booking a cruise.
