St. Maarten Half Day Snorkeling & Catamaran Sailing

"Come to Sail Away," the Styx song beckons. You'll be glad you joined this St. Maarten Catamaran Cruise and Snorkel Adventure.

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

This 40-foot Catamaran holds up to 20 guests in comfort. There is an enticing trampoline net calling your name to lay in comfort for tanning, as well as a shaded area. Snorkel gear is provided for those wishing to explore the undersea world. Restrooms are available on board. After the snorkel stop, snacks and drinks will be provided along with our specialty-made, best "Captain's Rum Punch" on the ocean, along with beers and other drinks. Sandwiches are offered after the second stop, Juice, soda, water, and snacks will be available throughout the day.

Our first stop will be over a shipwreck and sunken helicopter from long ago. Here the stories of history are unfolded. Then jump in, where you will 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 head to a local beach for some sandcastle building, shell collecting, swimming, floating and just relaxing, near the International Princess Juliana Airport. When pods of dolphins are sighted 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 home. On the return trip to Philipsburg, the friendly crew will pamper, entertain you and answer questions about our island, our culture, and other specialties of the island while enjoying Caribbean island music.

Unfortunately the bad weather did not permit us to experience our excursion. The owner/guide was extremely apologetic and gave us excellent recommendations on how to regroup and make sure our day wasn’t a waste. Still waiting for our refund but that’s to be expected.

Really enjoyed this excursion. This excursion was a highlight of our families trip. Snorkeling was fun and the lunch was good. The beach stop was amazing. We didn't have time to go to airport beach was the only disappointment. We didn't have enough time.
