Sailing on the Elegance
Sailing on a catamaran is one of our favorite vacation pastimes. It's a great way to see the island from a different view and you're also offered a ton of food and drink the entire time. We tend to avoid the big party boats and go for the smaller one or two hull boats. The Elegance was the perfect boat and we had a wonderful time with the crew and our small group of 8 people for the day.
We sailed mainly on the west coast of Barbados, also called the "Gold Coast" as that is where all the wealthy homes and hotels are located. It is also on the Carribbean side of the island so the water is a bit calmer.

And the highlight of the cruise was getting to swim with the sea turtles! I'm in the back there playing it cool but eventually I got to touch one as it swam by!
