St. Maarten Half Day Snorkeling & Catamaran Sailing

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

Sailing 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.

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 provided for those wishing to explore the undersea world.There is a freshwater shower for after, as well as restrooms 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 added to the "open bar". Sandwiches, cheeses, crackers and fresh fruit are added. 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 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 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 overhead as planes land at 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 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 really enjoyed this excursion. AJ, Roy and Leroy were great! They were all very friendly, accomodating and went out of their way to make sure everyone was enjoying themselves. They also made sure everyone was kept safe and AJ was especially helpful to those of us who were not strong swimmers. We learned a lot about the Island. We would definitely recommend this excursion, and we hope to do it again one day.

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.
