"All I ask is a tall ship," said the poet John Masefield. You'll combine sailing on a classic tall ship with snorkeling on St. Maarten's reefs, on this totally unique and thrilling "Pirates of the Caribbean Day Sail" tour.
The Tall Ship, under billowing square sails, makes its way down the protected lee shore of St. Maarten. Depending on sea conditions that day, your captain will choose the best cove to drop anchor. Along the way, let the crew pamper you with our open bar, world-famous BBQ ribs and chicken, French bread and cheese, fruit trays and other snacks.
The Tall Ship then anchors close to a well-protected snorkel and dive park in crystal-clear water for approximately an hour of swimming, snorkeling with the included snorkel gear, and of course ... bowsprit jumping. Learn from the crew, and see first-hand how the great windjammers of yesterday were sailed. Take a turn at the wheel, sip a rum punch, and relax under the Caribbean sun.
Seating is on the deck, hatch covers or cabin roof. There is some shade in the small cabin and a basic bathroom on board.
