Owner description: Golden Eagle Catamaran is operated by Out Island Charters. These boats include the famous Golden Eagle Catamaran, which is known to be the best ½ Day Cruise on St. Maarten / St. Martin with sailing, snorkeling, and open bar on the way home. Out Island also offers an exciting day of Power Rafting to Anguilla. Our Power Rafts have a shady bit, and visit 3 locations, one which is the most beautiful Sandy Island (Anguilla) you have ever seen. We also offer a 2-story Party Boat Ride and Tour of the Island and the Lagoon of St. Maarten / St. Martin. On it, you will get to know the island well, with our amazing local tour guides. If you have a group, you may want to charter our private boat. I have been told that is creates memories that last a life time. Can you image you and your closest friends and family jamming away at the sounds of waves and music as you make your way to a deserted island to have the most amazing lunch you will ever have? It happened. And Its on this channel. Subscribe for more great memories from your excursion / sail / day trip / tour from St. Martin / St. Maarten!

“A must if you stop at St Maarten”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2013

If you ever stop at St Maarten, the Golden Eagle trip is a must. Excellent service, friendly hosts, just long enough, and fair price. Food and drinks are included in the price. Highly recommended.

“The Best in St. Maarten”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012

This was the classiest cat sailing these waters. They have an amazing crew that practices safety, while having lots of fun! When we pulled in to the cove area for our snorkeling adventure, they put their dinghy in the water and followed fairly closely all swimmers and snorkelers, asking if everyone was ok, and offering assistance if needed. The Captain is gorgeous, and I mean "Fabio" gorgeous, nice and full of local info. The best Sail & Snorkel we've been on. These safety practices make this a great trip for families with children, or those that have not done much swimming. Everyone wears a flotation device. Bring you underwater camera!!

“BEST CATAMARAN TRIP EVER!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2012

My wife and I did this excursion when we went to St. Maarten on our Honeymoon. The tour was fabulous!!! We sailed down the coast to La Samana where we went snokeling and had ample time to enjoy the beach.. They had plenty to drink and the rum punch and champagne was flowing. The crew was very attentive and aimed to please. The boat and snorkel equipment was also in really good shape. It was really good value for money. I cant wait to book this excursion again when we go back next year on a cruise for our 1 year anniversary.

“A GREAT way to spend the DAY!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

We did the Friday Farewell tour around the island. Lasted approximately 8 hours and was a wonderful day! The day started with transortation fro our condo to the docks in Phillipsburg. They serve juice when you board the Catamaran. The sun and sea were perfect and provided a good ride! Sit in the back if you do not want to get wet! BE Careful-the netting is slippery when it gts wet! Alcohol (rum) was available all day. Snorkeling was okay-some fish-but not a great variety. You get a snack after snorkeling. Lunch was at Calmos Cafe and was really good. It was a 3 course meal with Chicken, veggies and rice pilaf. The RUM PUNCH here was fantastic!
TIP: Try to get to the Cafe in one of the first boats over to get a BEACH table for lunch! YOU will NOT regret it!
You end the day with a Champaign toast to the sunset!
We enjoyed this so much-we are doing it again this coming January!

“A Great Time for All”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

We just returned from our Carnival cruise. The highlight was our sailing and snorkling experience on the Golden Eagle. The staff was beyond excellent. They were all truly friendly and very helpful. Our kids had a great time. We had almost an hour of snorkling in very calm waters which was great for our kids. While there was not a lot of marine life at our site for mom and dad, there there was more than enough for our kids who were new to snorkling (they even saw an octopus). Lots of singing and good times on the return trip. Thanks to the great staff!
