Full-Day Eco-Snorkeling and Beach Excursion
Snorkel at some of St Maarten's most spectacular sites, such as Pinel Island, Creole Rock and Tintamarre Island. On this full-day eco-adventure with expert snorkeling guides, board the sleek powerboat and jet out into Simpson Bay. Don the provided snorkel gear, take advantage of your host's expert snorkeling guidance and jump in to swim with fish and turtles at 3 locations. Stop for a gourmet lunch in Grand Case, then head to Long Bay for some time lounging on the beach. On the way back to land, stop by Maho Beach to watch the jumbo jets landing at the nearby airport. Complimentary open bar on board and round-trip transportation from St Maarten hotels and Bobby's Marina are included.
What to Expect
Enjoy this amazing eco-tour with 5 stops, giving you a little bit of everything you can experience on this beautiful island.

Meet your guide in the designated meeting point at most St Maarten hotels or Bobby's Marina for cruise ship passengers. From there you guide will take you to the dock where you will board Billy Bones, your comfortable 28-foot powerboat for the day. The professional and friendly crew with provide you with first class snorkeling gear for adults and kids, serve up drinks from the open bar and prepare snacks. These amenities on board make the day even better than you can ever imagine!

The first part of the tour will include a brief sightseeing cruise along the coast with a view of Saba and St. Barth then you will arrive at the Simpson Bay Lagoon, the largest saltwater lagoon in the Caribbean. This is also the temporary home for many million dollar "Mega Yachts". After going under three bridges the boat will reach Tintamarre Island where you will get to snorkel with turtles and enjoy what this gorgeous, uninhabited island has to offer.

After Tintamarre, the boat will cruise over for the next stop - Pinel Island. Here there will be time for more snorkeling and you can feed the iguanas that call the island home.

After Pinel Island, the boat will take a nice cruise until you reach Creole Rock for more snorkeling. Explore this amazing rock formation which is part of the French National Park and is loaded with tropical fish and corals. This is a must see snorkeling destination on the island. You will feel like you are in an aquarium!

GRAND CASE for lunch just about 5 minutes from Creole Rock, the cuisine capital on the French side waiting for you with a very tasty lunch in a French RESTAURANT which is included in the price. (We DON'T serve SANDWICHES on board)

When we finish with our lunch Long Bay waiting for us for a real beach time. Here we will introduce you to our unique floating bar time or just relax on the white sand beach and work on your tan.

Of course on a way back we stop at the Airport beach where you can experience how’s that when a plane landing above your head. We back at the Philipsburg at 3 30pm which is still give you a bit of time to explore the main city on the Dutch side. Of course we really happy to assist you and give you our best advice what to do there.

The most fun we had while in Sint Maarten!!!

This was easily the best part of our amazing week long stay in Sint Maarten. The area certainly was devastated by the hurricane last year, but you wouldn't know it from the hospitality, great people and great attitudes of everyone there. Billy Bones employees are...More

There in a small platform at the back to get in/out of the water. The ladder is quite small but not too difficult. Usually plenty of help available too.

Absolutely! They pick you up and drop you off right at the dock area.

It’s about a 10 to 15 minute walk from the cruise pier to where their boat is. 7 1/2 hours is enough time, just email Billy Bones and make sure the schedule works for both of you
