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.
