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 kayak and snorkel at Pelican Key was wonderful. Our guide, Lilly, was informative and helpful. We learned a lot about the local reefs and the damage they have sustained from hurricanes. We saw many reef fish, a sea turtle and coral formations.

The guides were knowledgeable and accommodating. The tour was cancelled for those on the cruise ship but the two guides gave us options (the waves were tough and rough). They were honest that the snorkeling wouldn’t be good with the ocean so instead we kayaked all the way to the mangroves and to a beach. We saw wildlife and mega yachts during the regatta. Highly recommend this tour!!!

Get ready to burn some calories. The beach we left from was pretty nice with a few close by restaurants. The kids loved it because there was wifi are the restaurant. Staff was very friendly. Snorkeling was more challenging but worth it. You have to swim pretty far out to the reef

My husband and I had such a great time on this excursion. Frank was amazing. We snorkeled, saw very cool fish, and explored the area by kayak. A unique way to experience this beautiful beach. The Dutch side of St. Marteen has recovered really well from the hurricanes so don’t hesitate to visit!

Kayak and snorkel at pelican key review
August 29, 2018
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.
