Welcome to the beautiful island of Barbados. Barbados is situated just east of the island chain that forms the West Indies.

With only 166 square miles, we have endless stretches of white sand beaches and blue glass calm waters lapping gently on our sunkissed shores.

Let us cruise you down our west coast while you lie in the sun or just relax in the shade, cooled by the gentle Windward breezes while listening to the pulsating rhythms of our Caribbean music.

Tall Ship Cruises - It was a little over 35 years ago that five young Barbadians decided that tourism in their island home was here to stay and they should be a part of it, and so it was that just before Christmas in 1969, that a pirate ship, aptly named the Jolly Roger sailed out of the historic Careenage in Bridgetown - rum punch barrels full to the brim - on its very first voyage along the west coast. The Jolly Roger and it's infamous band of pirates took control over the high seas, luring regular folk onto their decks of pleasure.

Today the Jolly Roger has been joined by the one-of-a-kind custom-built MV Harbour Master, best described as a floating entertainment centre and Tiami Catamarans, a fleet of five luxurious vessels. This diverse fleet is collectively referred to as, Tall Ships.

Known far and wide for the quality we deliver, we are constantly striving to improve our products. Safety of passengers is a number one priority, sharing equal importance with enjoyment and customer satisfaction.

So Tall Ships certainly stands for choice, but more importantly we stand for experience and this has enabled us to deliver a product unmatched in the region. On each and every cruise, our dedicated team of over 100 people, take great pride in delivering more than we promise.
