St. Maarten Half Day Snorkeling & Catamaran Sailing

"Come Sail Away," the Styx song beckons. You'll be glad you joined the Half-Day Cat Sail and Snorkel Tour and did just that.

Sailing from the Great Bay of Philipsburg, you will see history, beautiful scenery and incredible villas and yachts as you sail along the coast past the ruins of Fort Amsterdam, Little and Cay Bays, and Pelican Key on your St. Maarten excursion.

The Catamaran holds up to 80 guests in comfort and is more than 50 feet in length. There is a spacious sun deck as well as a shaded area. Snorkel gear is available on your St. Maarten excursion for those wishing to explore the undersea world, and there is a freshwater shower for after, as well as restrooms on board. Juice, soda, water, and snacks will be available throughout the day. After the last snorkel stop, rum punch and beer will be added to the "open bar."

Depending on the weather conditions that day, your captain will set a course for best snorkeling stops. You may stop over a shipwreck, where you would have an unforgettable experience of watching underwater life. Be made near mullet bay beach, the lagoon, and bay lounge swimming, snorkeling, and just relaxing.

All too soon, it will be time to turn for home. On the return trip to Philipsburg, the friendly crew will pamper and entertain you with St. Maarten legends and some island music.

We had a wonderful time. Leroy was an amazing guide. He was fun, energetic and his main concern was making sure we were having a good time. We saw plenty of fish and Leroy would even dive deep and bring different types of sea life to the top so we could see. He went out of his way to make it enjoyable!

We did not have a catamaran as promised, there was not one available to us. There were about 10 people and we had a small boat. Even though I did not snorkel I enjoyed the outing very much. Our guide, Leroy was a very pleasant and jovial individual and I would certainly recommend him. (He also had a young helper with him who was very pleasant as well). Leroy went out of his way to make sure we had a good time. He took us to a beach and was able to get loungers for us at no cost. We had lunch and drinks as well. I would not hesitate to go on any excursion with him. Very, very nice guy.

The snorkeling was not great in that there was not a lot to see, but fun. The best part was riding in the boat and being told about the island. Loved the men that did the excursion!!

This was a wonderful tour. The captain and crew were gracious and very low key. We had a great time snorkeling, powering to a beach and great time relaxing at the beach. We went past the airport beach and saw where the planes land. Highly recommended for an easy going laid back time.
