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 tour guides 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 tour guides as they head across the bay towards Simpson Bay, offering the paddlers a unique view of this small, quaint fishing village. You will continue to paddle gently across the bay to the Pelican Keys coast, where you will pull your kayaks onto the white, sandy beach at the Pelican Resort.
After trying out your snorkeling equipment, you'll 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 35 minutes of underwater exploration, you'll 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.
This St. Maarten port tour requires a minimum of four participants to operate.

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).

My husband & I were the only ones who signed up for this tour. The guide couldn't have been better. He explained what we needed to know to enhance our experience. He was friendly and helpful. It was the highlight or our trip.

Chris was a super guide and took good care of us. He was very pleasant and knowledgeable about the tour and the ocean. His equipment was excellent. He tailored the tour to our abilities and interests. He even helped us catch a bus back to our cruise after our activity ended with him.
