Attraction details
Owner description: Departing from Dock Maarten Marina in Philipsburg, venture out into the beautiful Caribbean Sea and get scenic views of both the Dutch side (Sint Maarten) and French side of (Saint Maarten). Your trip begins by making its way past the Dutch side of the island, under the bridge and into the Simpson Bay Lagoon, the largest lagoon in the Caribbean. There you will see multi-million dollar yachts such as Victoria Secret's "Limitless" and the French Governor's family home. Exit the Lagoon on the French side of the island in the capital of Marigot and follow the coast line all the way to our first stop, "Tintamarre Island" where the myth of hidden treasures still exists. Explore Tintamarre, take beautiful photos as you walk along age old paths to see the historical slave walls built in the eighteen hundreds. Wander the pristine white sand beach while looking for hidden treasure; finders keepers...but don't tell anyone! The adventure continues with another gem only obtainable by boat, Pinel Island. Walk along this beautiful sand bar beach, sit down and relax in the crystal clear shallow water and have a drink. We'll treat you to lunch followed by the best snorkeling St.Martin has to offer! Get back in the boat and see the other side of the island where hidden behind the walls and gates of the French and Dutch Low Lands are the beautiful estate homes of the rich and famous. As the day winds down our last stop is at Sunset Beach Bar where you watch the planes come in overhead and then ride the oncoming waves of the Caribbean Sea back to Dock Maarten.

Johnathan was exceptional. This was my second trip to Sint Maarten and I loved the Pirate tour so much, it was a must do again....I couldn't imagine it being better than the first and it was. Thanks Perry for booking it for us and Johnathan for an adventurous tour.

We took this trip with a family we traveled with to St. Marteen, and loved every second of the tour. We had five kids between the ages of 6-14 and they all thought it was amazing. Capt. Mike and Patricia were great to be with and were very knowledgeable of the island and the surrounding areas. It was more of... More

We recently visited St Maarten for the second time and went on this tour. We had gone on a tour with a different company before this and thought that was good. This tour blew the previous one out of the water. If you have teenage sons or daughters, you must give this tour a try. It is head and shoulders... More

Our tour guide Michael made the experience so much more fun and he was just another reason why I'd... More

My wife and I have tried many of the water sport adventures on the island of Sint Maarten but this one is tops! Michael and Patricia are truly in their niche as they are excellent hosts and very knowledgable about the island. The most exciting part for me was the thrill of speeding to the next spot in windy surf.... More
