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 such a joyous time on this excursion. The boat ride was scenic and terrific, and the narrative about St. Maarten was informative. The crew had a great sense of humor and they were fun and kind.

Reviewer: Elizabeth Jakubec
The crew was very attentive and went above expectations with service. They were constantly helping guests move about the boat, asking if anyone needed drinks, giving local lore and points of interest. Only negative was not enough food for everyone on board-either due to people taking too much at the front of the line or not stocking enough for the trip. The tour was full but did not feel that way until got in line to eat on way back.

It was a windy day so we were the only 4 people on the tour. What an amazing day!!! Joseph and Charles made us feel very welcome and took fantastic care of us. The catamaran is very clean and we felt safe and comfortable despite the wind. I highly recommend this tour. The only negative part was a mixup about where we should meet up with them in the morning.

Sailing on a smaller catamaran was amazing. Everyone was happy and courteous. Snorkeling was great. Took us to a nice beach for a swim. Lunch was supplied and a few refreshments. Highly recommend.
