Come aboard the schooner "Captain Morgan" for a wonderful sailing adventure along much of the Dutch side of the islands coast with swimming and snorkeling and BBQ lunch on this St. Maarten excursion.
Your private group, up to 25 guests, are ensured an ambiance of privacy with plenty of room on the deck in the shade or the sun.
Sailing from the Grand Bay of Phillipsburg, this St. Maarten tour sails along the south coast of the island, passing some of the islands most famous sights, including Fort Amsterdam, and popular (and packed) Pelican and Simpson Bay. You will sail past Maho Beach, located at the end of the International airport's runway, where if your lucky, you may have a jet landing right overhead. The jets approach low over the water is something you do not get to witness every day. You will also see the beauty of the island and nature that can only be seen from the seaside!
Your time on board includes the services of a friendly crew who will treat you to fabulous service. This tour includes a delicious BBQ lunch with our famous ribs, with Captains secret Seasonings, and open bar with sodas, beers and rum punch after the snorkeling.
A stop will be made so that guests can snorkel with the provided equipment. Staff on this St. Maarten excursion will also help you with gear and for guests new to snorkeling, easy instruction so you can get snorkeling to see a sunken helicopter, a tanker, and a sailboat beneath the warm crystal clear waters of the Caribbean. Snorkel stops average 45 minutes and are off the boat.
If your goal is simply to relax and do as little as possible, you can recline in comfort on Captain Morgan's deck with comfortable cushions or the large aft-deck sun lounge while sipping the special rum punch and soaking up the sunshine and listening to the wonderful music. On the return sail, our crew member ensures a good atmosphere with singing. Our gentle kind of sailing is available to senior guests with limited movement as well as the active and the passive guests.
Final itinerary is at the captain's discretion on the day of the tour based on sea and weather conditions and the safety / comfort of the guests. Snorkeling stop may vary as well based on sea and weather conditions.

This is a great relaxing trip. The crew are friendly and tentative. We had 12 people on board with 6 grandchildren included from twins 8yrs old to 18 yrs old. They had the time of their life. Will book this again .
Great food! Fun crew.very attentive to our needs. Beware crew does smoke. And sunshade area on boat are limited. But we saw Beautiful sites and Great time was had by our group! We did get changed to a little earlier in the day, which was fine since our return to ship time was pretty close to our departure time. Maybe they took this into account. Once in a lifetime experience.

A wonderful family adventure for all of us. The weather was less than perfect since we did it in December but it was still incredible. The crew members made a lovely day for all 9 of us, ranging in age from 11 to 67. Teenagers and adults were all satisfied with this excursion! Music, food, snorkeling and the beauty of the day! Crew members helped with everything from snorkeling to first aid! Great day! Thank you!!!!!
