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.

Very relaxing day
February 08, 2023
Catamaran was very well-maintained and clean. The two young men onboard were very friendly and assisted in anything needed. Rum punch and snacks were offered. The only draw back was the directions as to how to get to the boat. We asked numerous locals along the way for assistance and kept getting different directions. We nearly missed the boat. Luckily they came looking for us along the way and we were able to get onboard!

Half Day Cat Sail and Snorkel at St-Marteen
January 04, 2023
Great experience! Would have stayed longer as it was so nice. Weather was perfect, crew members were great, very nice and made sure we were at ease and safe. Thought would see Juliana's Airport closer to live the plane experience but understand matter of security restrictions on the water. Sandwich could have been a bit less bread more filling but that is the only thing. Recommand with no hesitation!

Best catamaran trip we've had. From the moment the crew welcomed us on board we had a wonderful time. The rum punch, beers and snacks flowed. Great snorkelling. Crew joined in the fun and were brilliant hosts. It was a fantastic trip that the whole party loved . I cannot recommend this trip highly enough

St. Marteeen Excursion
December 06, 2022
This was the peferctly timed excursion. No panci to get back and located within walkiing distance of port. One stop for snorkeling and then one at the beach. Beach was cool to watch the planes takeoff. Crew was great. Small group from our ship so never crowded.
