Sailed on the Stiletto on Aug 20 2015. The Sailing was an absolute blast. Thank you Sheldon , Eric, and Shawn. We could not have asked for a better time. The hospitality was fantastic. The crew made you feel like their guests not just someone they were forced to spend time with for a pay check. The turtle snorkel was amazing and the wreck dive was fun. From the time we met the crew at the dock till we departed [ feeling like we made new friends] we could not have asked for a better time. The snorkeling, the drinks that kept coming, the fresh warm banana bread, the informative talk about Barbados, the great food for lunch that was both delicious and plentiful, and the fantastic day on the water. We could not have dreamed of a better experience. This excursion was the best by far on our seven day cruise. The cruise ship try to discourage people from going off ship to book excursions I want to say I'm so glad I didn't listen. Stiletto is a far superior experience to anything you could book on ship. Once again thank you so much Captain Sheldon, Eric and Shawn for giving us a wonderful day in beautiful Barbados PS If we're ever in Barbados again we'll be sure to spend a day on the Stiletto.
AWESOME! AMAZING! FANTASTIC! BREATH TAKING!
Those are just a few of the words that would aptly describe our experience sailing on board Stiletto. Captained by Sheldon along with crew Eric and Shawn it was an experience I would never forget.
I wanted to go swimming with the turtles but unfortunately, I can't swim and was terrified ....got all geared up and froze...finally made it to the ladder and started to panic when I let go of the rope by the ladder...screaming and terrified...Sheldon came to my rescue, took off my mask and talked me into a calmer state. He coached me on the basics and even though I basically didnt do everything as I was being advised (due to fear) he didnt get angry or quit on me, he talked and showed me over and over.
Next stop Im excited to see wrecks....still cant swim but more confident....got geared up and into the water all on my own....still needing support, Shawn took over and stayed with me all the way, guided me to the wrecks, turtles, fish and by time I got back on catamaran I was ready to do it all over again.
Big big bigggg thank you to both of you for putting up with me!! I truly appreciate it and definitely will be recommending you guys to others.
The hospitality was on point, food was delicious and the presentation made my tummy growl in anticipation ...yes they cater to vegetarians like me! Eric payed attention to us all, bringing snacks and drinks as we lounged or partied. Shawn keep the original orders flowing as soon as our glasses got low (big smile).
All in all I would give you guys full ratings. Service, attitude, ambiance and loads of fun!
The birthday girl (allll the way from Canada) also said just now that when she comes back to Barbados she definitely will be sailing with you again as well.
I live in Barbados and experienced another sweet side to my beautiful island.
See you again soon!
Another fantastic day on the Stilleto with Captain Sheldon, Sean and Eric. Great guys who kept us fed,watered and entertained all day. This trip is the highlight of every Barbados holiday we've ever had. swimming with the turtles is breathtaking. Food, drink and company was excellent. Great party crowd on board today. All of the people on other boats were looking at ours with envy. Thanks guys once again
Randal and Preacher captained our boat and they were both so awesome. They took us snorkeling to 2 ship wrecks, to feed/swim with the turtles, and to see a variety of fish and sea life. Both Preacher and Randal was an excellent tour guide telling us all about the sights along the coast and tell us about their island. Best of all, they served all of us a delicious lunch of chicken, fish, salad, homemade banana bread and rum punch! The weather was beautiful, the day was relaxing and the sites was amazing. Such a wonderful experience we'll remember always for years to come! Thanks you guys!!!
This was my first time to the Barbados and really enjoyed the Stiletto cruise. Thanks for making it a fun day out and for being friendly. Great food and drink and 15 guests on board so not too crowded. Amazing to swim with 6 turtles and a multitude of fish. Beautiful sea.
Just wanted to say that we had a wonderful time with the crew on the Stiletto this past Sunday! We saw tons of turtles which was an incredible experience. The ship wreck and coral reef were really exciting to see as well.
Thank you to our crew for keeping our drinks filled and for showing us an unforgettable time!
To the Crew of the Stiletto... AWESOME CRUISE... Thank you. We were a party of 8 and the cruise truly made our holiday special, everything was perfect, the boat wasn't crowded, the crew was great, the food was delicious and the day was beautiful. Thank you all again for a great time.
Thank you so much for our fabulous day out on your boat on the 23rd Jan.
Mrs Aston and I had a really memorable day and felt really safe in the capable hands of Graham and Sean.Please pass on our kind regards and thanks to the crew and I hope your business continues to offer such good service and hospitality as we received.
Thanks and kind regards... Graham Aston.
Most amazing day out ever! The Shaun's and Sheldon totally made our day! You'd be crazy to book with anyone else! Thanks again xxx
Our third trip with you guys! We are big fans and strong advocates!
With Stiletto out of the water Graham organised what became a private charter with Randal at the helm on the Super Cat.
Despite an overcast day this was our best trip for snorkelling. Randal was the perfect host and gave us another day we will never forget. Please pass on our thanks to him... Top Man!
Oh and strongly recommend his Coco Mania mix!
We chartered two Super Cats and had the time of our lives! With four families - 8 adults and 11 kids - we split up the boys and girls for a great day of snorkeling, sunning, and lunching. Randal and Preacher captained our boat and were great with us girls and our kiddos. They took us snorkeling to 2 ship wrecks, to feed the turtles, and to see a variety of fish and sea life. Several of our kids hadn't snorkeled before and Preacher was amazing and helped them adjust to this new sensation of breathing with their face underwater! Randal was an excellent tour guide telling us all about the sights along the coast. Best of all, these precious men served all of us crazy gals a delicious lunch of jerk chicken, flying fish, salad, homemade banana bread and fresh mango! It was a relaxing day and a wonderful experience we'll remember fondly for years to come!
I just want to let you know just how much we enjoyed our recent trip with Sheldon as our captain. What a great day- he is great!
We chartered the boat for a private trip. Preacher took care of us making sure we saw plenty of beautiful fish and got us right in the middle of lots of turtles for the snorkeling.
Randal made sure we got the most out of the sailing. Both were excellent. We had a lot of fun and would highly recommend these guys.
What a fantastic experience, the crew could not have been more helpful and attentive, especially towards one lady who had a disability. We had a fantastic, relaxing day, especially enjoyable was swimming with turtles and exploring a shipwreck for one member of my party. Cannot recommend highly enough. If you are in Barbados DO THIS!!!!!
What a great day out, highly recommended, we went out with Randell and "Preacher" on Stiletto 2 we had a party of 8 of us, we were the only ones on the boat and were extremely well looked after, these guys knew what they were doing. And was introduced to Coco Loco... its strong!
We recently spent an afternoon on the boat with Sheldon and Eric & crew for the 5 hr. catamaran trip in Barbados. We had a fantastic time and would definitely recommend everyone who is visiting the island to do this. We just had a great afternoon. Those individuals give you the best time, and lots of good rum punches. They are a happy crew, and make the excursion a wonderful experience. Can't wait to do it again in a couple yrs. I think the sunset cruise will also need to be added to our itinerary. Thank you Sheldon and mates....we so enjoyed.
Just wanted to thank Sheldon, Sean and Sean for a great snorkelling experience. We came off a cruise ship on march 13/14 and the whole experience from pick up to drop off was smooth and stress free. Wouldn't hesitate to use this crew and company again.
Had a wonderful afternoons private cruise on one of the small cats with captain Randall on March 14th
The sea turtles were great fun and the shipwrecks made great snorkeling. Throughout Randall was a fantastic host telling us about the history of the island and what we were seeing as we sailed the west coast in great conditions (he also made a great bar man).
Would thoroughly recommend using them. Randall was even kind enough to drop us off on the beach of our hotel....much to the envy of other guests. Great time and good value.
We had a fantastic time on Super Cats on 28 Feb 2014. Swimming with the sea turtles and fish was an awesome experience.
The crew, Randel and Preacher, were fantastic and the small sail boat provided a private feel on our cruise.
We will definitely go again on our next trip to Barbados!
Thank you for another wonderful day, this is our fourth year and as usual it was wonderful, preacher and Randal were the perfect hosts.
Thank you once again
Robert, Michelle and the girls.
