Nirvana Sailing Excursion

Sailing, snorkeling and swimming. We've gotta hand it to you - you've picked a particularly great way to spend the day with this St. Maarten excursion!

Climb aboard your sailboat where you will find plenty of space in the shade or sun, as there are never more than 30 guests plus crew on board. Sit back, lie down, hang on and, of course, relax, as the crew welcomes you on board and the captain prepares to sail.

Departing from Simpson Bay, your captain will take you on a beautiful course past bays and some of the island's lowlands. Your St. Maarten tour itinerary is based on the sea / weather conditions, and your captain will take you to where you will have the best experience.

Two of the captain's favorite spots are Baie Longue and Mullet Bay. When the boat arrives at Baie Longue, it is often greeted by a myriad of sea creatures, making this a perfect spot for snorkeling. You can even try using a paddleboard or an ocean kayak.

While you are snorkeling, walking the beach, or chilling out on one of the comfy cushions, your hostess is cooking a full lunch of Caribbean-inspired treats such as coconut curry chicken with rice, usually a nice green salad and French bread, as well as an edible fruit garnish. There are always cookies and chocolates afterward.

Then it's on to the second stop, Mullet Bay. This is also an ideal location to swing on the famous Tarzan Swing. This trapeze style swing allows guests to swing out and drop, back flip, or dive into the beautiful, blue water. The boat's bar is open with bottled water, juices and sodas in the morning, and for after snorkeling, some of the coldest beer in St. Maarten, as well as rum punch.

Please Note: Final itinerary is at the captain's discretion on the day of the tour based on sea and weather conditions and the safety and comfort of the guests.

5 StarsOne of the best excursions I've been onMarch 07, 2019

Reviewer: John Mills
The weather wasn't the best the day we went, high winds precluded us going to the best snorkeling location, but despite this, we had a great time. Customer service couldn't be better, and we enjoyed the small group setting, only 20 or 25 on this excursion. And, the lunch was fabulous.
