Barbados Sailing

You'll only see half the picture if you just see this blessed little island from land. Sailing on a catamaran is a 'must do' fun activity for the whole family. Tours usually sail along the west coast of the island, leaving from Bridgetown.

Most catamaran packages include a lunch stop as well as an open bar, and you can take in sights such as beach turtles and activities such as snorkeling and diving among ship wrecks.
