We took a three island snorkeling adventure aboard the AWESOME boat with the best crew of Jervis and Eon. What a great time and the best rum punch served on the island. Great snorkeling, lunch and fun. Recommended for anyone visiting St. Maarten. A great day excursion. James and Donna Moore, Michigan

I would definitely recommend if you are looking to get the best snorkeling available at St Maarten. We did the three hour tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. I will say that it could get a bit crowded at the snorkeling locations if other tours showed up. That was a bummer when trying to see the sea turtles. Otherwise, great time... More

Thank you for your feedback. We are happy to read that you had a great time with us. St.Maarten is getting more cruise ships in port. Especially in the peak season months March and April, the normally more secluded locations can be busier than normal. This is something we cannot control…though yes we would love to have these locations for... More

Three nice snorkels, but nothing really special as snorkeling goes when you've been to Fiji or Florida Keys to snorkel. Great turtles, nice corals at Green Cay. Signed up for a 6-hour adventure and only received 5-hour trip as we had to wait on people who were coming from a cruise ship that didn't get in on time. Would have... More

Thank you for your feedback, We are happy to read that you had a good trip with us. We also thank you for the generosity to make the excursion possible for the couple that was late because of a delayed cruise ship. They really appreciated that…and we think that you would have too if you would have been in their... More

I researched many options for a day of snorkeling in St Maarten while on a cruise port stop and loved all the positive reviews. And I must admit, they were all dead on. I booked this for my family and 3 other families that we were cruising with and I was very nervous as I wanted everything to be perfect.... More

We had a group of 16 (2) Boats of (8) - What an amazing day we had. I would recommend this tour to anyone. Such great tour guides, awesome sandwiches, and amazing Rum Punch made perfectly. Waters were pretty rough witch added to the adventure, both Captain Allen and his wife handle the both boats with expertise. Boats were beautiful,... More

Captain Paul and Celia with trainee Mercedes made a great crew. The boat is very well kept and quiet. We spent about 5 1/2 ours out on the water. It was great. They run the boat expertly and showed us all a good time. The textile buoy was missing, but we got the idea. Other posts and their website tell... More

This is a fantastic way to spend a day in the sun. We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Captain Paul was a great host and was extremely knowledgeable about the history of the island. Once we passed the "buoy" Captain Paul set the example for the rest of us. Even some who appeared to be hesitant about enjoying the trip in... More

We snorkeled with Captain Alan on our cruise and had a blast! The guides were knowledgeable and so much fun! They knew the best spots to snorkel and were incredible at helping us newbies. We went to three separate spots to snorkel and had great experiences at each. The first stop was with the turtles, then on a guided snorkel... More

This trip is awesome. A must do for anyone in St Maarten. I booked the 3 hour tour. Transportation is provided to the boat and everything went smoothly. I was a little hesistant about not booking a excursion through my cruise ship but everything worked out perfectly. The islands we were brought too were beautiful. My favorite part was snorkling...

Well after researching the snorkeling beach adventures we decided on Captain Alan's. We definitely made the right choice. Our captain, Gervase was awesome! He makes a great lunch and rum punch. Made us all feel very comfortable and safe. Main reason for this trip was because of the small group of people, 11 of us. Made new friends from Canada,... More
