Kayak and Snorkel at Pelican Key
Kayaking & Snorkeling Cruise Excursion at Pelican Key
Come kayaking and snorkeling at Pelican Key, in the crystal-blue waters of St. Maarten, and two things are certain: you'll have the time of your life, and you may never want to return to civilization!
After making your way to 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 guide towards Pelican Keys. Along the way, you can admire resting birds and nearby islands. Next you will head to a quiet bay, where your snorkel experience begins.
After trying out your snorkeling equipment, you will swim out to the thriving reef at Pelican Rock, where the guides will point out some of the fascinating and colorful creatures that inhabit the coral and rocky caverns.
After approximately 45 minutes of underwater exploration, you will head back to your kayaks for the return paddle to Simpson Bay, followed by an ice cold refreshment at a nearby restaurant and a discussion on the fish that you discovered during your swim.

The kayaking was good, the snorkelling was disappointing. It was done from the shore as opposed to from a boat, there wasnt much coral , hence not much fish or anything interesting. The guides were great and the instructions to newbies were great as well. If the location is to change to jump off a boat near coral reefs this would definitely be rated 5 stars

The snorkeling that day was not so great because the ocean was a bit stirred up but the the swim was wonderful and the kayaking was a blast. The guides were very friendly, fun and helpful.

Took a while to drive to the location. Once we got there the guide was very pleasant, easy to talk to, informative and helpful. The kayaking was fun and a bit challenging and snorkeling a blast. We saw fish, stingray etc. When the excursion was over, the guide purchased drinks for us and we chatted and he recommended a local restaurant and gave us travel tips. Very nice experience.
Great fun and would recommend it. very personalized and a great guide.

Frank, Ollie, & Dean were tremendous hosts and guides. From the warm greeting the second we got there, to the knowledge that they shared, along with clear and helpful instructions of how to properly use all the equipment, this was extremely well put together. Perfect weather, extremely clear and comfortable temperature water, with the kayaks, oars, and snorkeling gear all in great shape and well taken care of. Even better was finishing everything after a few hours, and we were all given a free beverage of our choosing (I went with the rum punch and would recommend you do the same).
