Half Day Cat Sail and Snorkel
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 24 guests in comfort and is more than 40 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. There are restrooms and a freshwater shower on board. After the last snorkel stop, homemade bush teas, rums, and tastings of locally-made specialties, along with our signature rum punch and beer, will be available at the open bar. There will also be sandwiches, cheeses, crackers, and fresh fruit. Juice, soda, water, and snacks will be available throughout the day.
Depending on the weather conditions that day, your captain will set a course for best snorkeling stops. Our first stop over a shipwreck and sunken helicopter from long ago. Here the stories of history unfolded. Then jump in, where you would have an unforgettable experience of watching underwater life. Enjoy the fish feeding as hundreds of fish swim around you in our famous water park. Next we stop at Mullet Bay Beach, the lagoon, and for some swimming, snorkeling, floating and just relaxing. Our third stop will be at the famous landmark of Maho Beach. Watch over head as planes land at the International Princess Julianna Airport. When pods of dolphins are sited we take the time to stay for a while for photos and enjoy the playfulness. No two trips are alike.
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.
