This is just the right sized boat and trip if you are looking to snorkel and enjoy the views of the island. We had fewer than a dozen people on board, and it was quite pleasant. Some of the other tours had huge boats with dozens of loud partiers who came to jump off the trampoline and get drunk....not my style.

We took the afternoon boat, which leaves at 2pm. Captain Albert took us out to Creole Rock. Along the way he told us many things about the beautiful Island. The boat ride was so relaxing and gorgeous. We were able to snorkel for almost an hour. My husband saw a small octopus!! This trip is totally worth the money!

Snorkleing was great but I think our Captain may have been preoccupied by something else that day. We weren't greeted too warmly and he was not the typical outgoing personality I have encountered on previous trips with Aqua mania or other providers.........

Also, one little bowl of cheese cubes, half a baguette and a couple sliced apples is the snack. Bowl was served when captain started drive back to swim location.. Needs a little more and perhaps two bowls as people are distributed between front and back of boat....

Hi Cindy Thank you for sharing this feedback. Our captain usually gets great reviews. We will look into this on our end regarding your observation of him being preoccupied. Your suggestion regarding an additional bowl will be considered. Thank you again for this feedback.

We dropped anchor about 50 feet from swimming area, then had to swim closer to rock near Creole Rock. We were told by the Capt. upon arrival (certainly not before we paid already) that due to Hurricane Irma last year the reef was destroyed and the fish relocated. So basically, they FALSE ADVERTISE by telling you what to expect as far as marine life, and when you get there...nothing. All that, and all I saw the entire time was alot of rock, 2 sponges, and 2 small sergent major fish. Totally ripped off, and disappointed.What made it more insulting is that these locals know these waters, and knew this ahead of time, yet continue to book customers under false pretenses. not cool. Now we don't trust you, won't use you anymore, and are telling everyone to stay away. Better straighten up if you want to stay in business. My suggestion: Take the longer excursions to Tinntemare Island and Pinel Island with food. I saw more marine life back in the states in Key West, Fla.

We went with Junior to Creole Rock. He was very helpful in answering all our questions about the island and the work since Irma. Contrary to the reviewer below, we saw tons of fish, and beautiful corals and anemones. Various species of parrot fish, sergeant majors, flounder, butterfly fish, trunk fish, ballyhoos, tangs, even a large stingray. Junior was very helpful in pointing out different fish and helped find the stingray, which had buried itself in the sand. We have been going to St. Maarten for a few years now, and this was definitely one of nicest and most economical excursions.

Wonderful trip and great guide. He took us to a nice snorkeling spot. Then took us to a fun swimming spot. We had beer and rum punch, with some cheese, apple slices and bread. Perfect afternoon snack. Great tour of the island also! The only confusion was when we arrived at the place, I didn’t know we had to go inside and check in, then the boat captain came and got us. But, it wasn’t a big deal. Junior gave a great tour and boat ride

Decent snorkeling. Great beach stop. Our guide wasn’t the greatest. Not very friendly and acted like he didn’t want to be there. But for the money wasn’t a bad trip. Don’t know if I would do again though.
