Relaxing day! Your Host Dark Angel, goes out of his way to make for a very relaxing day! From pick up at the cruise port till your return. Drinks were perfect and could purchase additional as well food. Convenient location close to ship.

Our family (11 adults) enjoyed a terrific day at the beach! Our host, "Dark Angel" made sure that everything was perfect! Drinks were delicious, location was nice! Great value and nice addition to our cruise vacation!

It was good - but it did have a slow start - But St Maarten is still rebuilding
Reviewer: Pat Ransom
Excellent value! Sun, beautiful beach, loungers, umbrellas, entertaining guide, and refreshments. I would definitely recommend this excursion. It exceeded our hopes.
Reviewer: Carlos Plasencia
This excursion was perfect, and perfectly priced. Dark Angel was a gentleman with an amazing ability to make you feel comfortable, welcome, and appreciated. His service was first class, he gave you options for lunch, no hard sells or pushiness whatsoever. The food was amazing!! For $16 you get a first class meal on the beach with silverware, no plastic utensils! (The only negative was the ladies asking if you want a massage, that was annoying as they lingered way too long). Still give this an A+++ rating, and highly recommend.
Very relaxing day, will return next year.

great break from big crowds. Everyone was very nice.
Reviewer: Anthony Boiarski
The group gave 100% to make this a great excursion. The Caribbean was 10 feet away from our beach chairs. Even though we were late for the initial bus, they picked us up at the port. Our host (Dark Angel) was a real angel. He sang for us because the speaker for the Reggae music was destroyed by the hurricane. He also went out of his way big time to get us what we wanted.
Reviewer: Barbara Jones
Although because of the hurricane there wasn't music, it was a wonderful day at the beach. Good drinks and the food available for purchase was out of this world! The fact that we could wander up and down the boardwalk and know our belongings were safe was a great relief. We would do it again in a heart beat.

This was a great excursion. We were taken care of all day by Dark Angel who worked so hard to ensure that our day was fantastic and it was. We got to stay at the beach for 5 hours. It was beautiful and relaxing. The drinks (2 included) and food were delicious and the water was breathtaking. Would definitely do this again.

Reviewer: Bonita Sutler
We enjoyed our day at the beach! Thank you Bobbi of Blue Bubbles Watersports and Dive Center. Thank you to our host, Bevin for a wonderful day at the beach!
This was a great excursion for the price. We were picked up at our ship and spent the day at a beautiful beach with our own server for the day.

After a weather delay put our cruise ship in port later than planned, we caught a taxi to the beach area. We were set up with lounge chairs and an umbrella. We had our choice of rum punch, local beer, soda or water. The rum punch was quite good! The host also offered lunch (a separate price) which was also very filling. It was chicken or shrimp, fries,seasoned rice and salad. The time seemed to go fast and the next thing we knew we were in a jeep on our way back to the cruise ships!
Reviewer: Judy Engel
This excursion was the best. We have been to St. Maarten several times and this was the best yet! Beach was beautiful, drinks were fantastic and our guide was phenomenal. He made sure we all were comfortable in our chairs and kept a drink in our hands! Small group, less money than any cruise line. We will always book through Shore Excursions!
Reviewer: Kathy King
We really enjoyed the Rum and Reggae Beach Break. The beach was beautiful and not crowded. Beven, our host while we were on the beach was fabulous!! He kept us in drinks and laughs! We would highly recommend this excursion!
We enjoyed this excursion. Clean beach, close to ship, relaxing and yummy rum punch!
Nice relaxing way to sit on the beach and chill! Easy to find guide and transportation
Reviewer: John Munn
Highly recommend. Fun time for a restful afternoon. We would definitely do again.
Reviewer: Ashley lake
It's good for the price. The drinks are pathetic and there isn't any reggae music though. It needs a rename for beach day with umbrellas.
Reviewer: Mary J. Elser
There were 3 couples in our group. We were all quite pleased at how perfect the trip was. Umbrellas, comfortable beach chairs, and several drinks. Lunch menus were brought down to our chairs and the food delivered to us. Beautiful beach and beautiful water. Owner was super person, funny, great host and made the day perfect! Recommend!
We were one of 5 couples that had this excursion. Umbrella and beach chairs were included. We were right on the ocean's edge and the water was really nice and warm. No rocks or seaweed either!! The person that was taking care of us was really, really nice and sincere. Yes, we will do this again!!
The Rum and Reggae Beach Break was a fairly good value. Be advised however, you'll get the Rum part, but there was no Reggae to be found. We did find beach front lounge chairs at a local St. Maartens beach close to shopping, bars, and watersports. You will get solicited for food, beverage, and souvenir purchases but the prices were very reasonable compared to Cruise line prices for the same stuff. Our host Bobbi was running in every direction and at times hard to find, but it did not detract from our fun. Family had a terrific time at a great beach, it was a wonderful day. Would absolutely do this again.
Lots of fun. The beach was beautiful. We had reserved chairs with umbrellas and a man that brought us drinks. We were a little confused at first because we were the only one on the excursion. It is basically someone that drives you to a nice pretty private beach and waits around to help you with whatever you need. The beach is also on a boardwalk with shops and many food places. My daughter and I had a great time.
We were very pleased with the level of organization. We were delivered to the water taxi and introduced to Frankie. Frankie was friendly, caring, and a hard worker. The experience out performed the expectation. It was a nice relaxing beach day for us - no stress, no hassles. Frankie made sure we had the beverages we wanted when we wanted them. There were restrooms close by and they were pretty clean and accessible.

Was worth the price! for a relaxing trip transportation, chaise, two drinks for the price was good.
Day trip to beach included water taxi, lounges, umbrella, and two drinks each. Close to restaurants and shopping. Wonderful!
Since I have been to St. Maarten previously, I just wanted a relaxing day. This excursion was really more of a packaged convenience. It included a round trip ticket on the water taxi from the ship to the town of Phillipsburg, a chaise lounge and umbrella at the beach, and two drinks. I expected reggae music, but there wasn't any. I could have put this together on my own, but it was a nice convenience to have it done for me. The beach is literally right at the town, so it was nice to be able to go to lunch and do a little shopping.

Water taxi included and quick.. Very short walk to beach chairs with umbrellas. We relaxed just a few feet from beautiful waters edge. Drinks plentiful and served to u. Allowed to stay longer than stated. Great beach for beach walking. Book this trip NOW.
