Exploration by Kayak

Paddle your way to paradise on this St. Martin excursion to have memories that will last forever.

After making your way to the meeting point in Simpson Bay, you will meet your guide for a paddling demonstration on the beach. After your quick lesson, you will board your sit-on-top-type kayaks, which offer exceptional stability and follow your guides on a gentle paddle across the Bay, under the Simpson Bay Bridge and into the Lagoon. You will pass the incredible mega-yachts docked at the various marinas, that dot the coastline of the Simpson Bay Lagoon (Mega-Yacht season is from November to April), and explore the mangroves along the Bellevue coastline.

Your St. Martin tour guides will point out interesting creatures like the upside-down jellyfish and the strange sea cucumbers, which thrive in these shallow waters. Keep your eyes open for the rarely seen grey and blue herons, which nest in these quiet havens.

Continue on along the coast, where you will be shown the invisible border that has signified a peaceful separation of the Dutch and French parts of St. Maarten since 1648.

Paddling past some of the world's most luxurious motor yachts, you will continue out through the bridge into the quiet bay for a well-deserved swim at the beautiful Simpson Bay Beach.

Return to your starting point where, you will enjoy a cold drink and good conversation with your guides at a nearby restaurant.
