Great snorkeling excellent drinks and food. Only addition I would add would have been a little more remote excursion, but I feel that Diane would have done that had we asked her too. Great day trip none the less.

We had so much fun this day. We were there on a cruise day. They were great about getting us back on time. Diane and Trevor were awesome and very helpful. April was amazing and spent extra time with my son. The sailboat was so relaxing my son slept on the way back. I can't wait to come back and... More

We booked this excursion independently during our Disney cruise last year. It was a full day of sailing. The captain and his wife were actual sailors by which I mean they live on the Random Wind. The captain didn't say much; he had what I would call an air of quiet confidence. The highlight of the trip was swinging from... More

We were on an 8 day cruise for a business trip. There were 18 of us asked to join in on this excursion. I wasn't too excited about it for fear of getting sea sick and the thought of riding on a sailboat wasn't that appealing to me. Boy, was I wrong. It was AMAZING! Everyone should try this excursion.... More

Had a nice time. If you are looking for snorkeling, this is not it. Spots we stopped at had nothing to look at. Sailing, swimming, swinging from trapeze, drinks, and food were all great. Never saw a mud bath as pictured on the ads.

A group of us were on a cruise, and our last stop was in St. Maarten. After doing tours in Barbados, St. Thomas, St. Kitts, and St. Lucia, we all agree that our experience with the Random Wind, April, and Capt. Trevor was by far the best, making St. Maarten our favorite port! The Random Wind is in excellent condition... More

We loved the staff and the food looked amazing (was a little too seasick to eat it!!) But they were so professional and were great to everyone and the tarzan swing was great! I would recommend the Random Wind to anyone! Thank you again!

Did the trip last year and had a great time so this was a return visit. Seas were very rough this time. Captain altered the course to make the best of it. We did fine but others did not have the sea legs we do. Food was very good. Met some very nice people as we did last year. April... More

The Random Wind and her crew are the BEST! It is a great day sail with awesome home made food, with snorkeling and a great deal of adventure along the coast. Also they offer a great private cruise!

I was on the Random Wind a few days ago and it was a highlight of my time in St. Maarten! Trevor & April were a great crew...April was always there when your glass was empty and was fun and upbeat the entire day, and I also felt very safe with Trevor at the helm! The snacks and lunch were... More
