Overview

We have several boats available for rent and captained charters. What an unforgettable way to see the Caribbean coastline! The tour lasts between 3 and 7 hours. Our 11' Boston Whalers require no experience to tour Simpson Bay Lagoon on your own,dock in Marigot and check out beautiful Cupecoy Beach. We also have larger boats for snorkeling and sight-seeing. For larger groups, our 25' is a great way to tour the Caribbean inexpensively.

We cannot accomodate a party of that size. However, there are a number of excursions that can. H2O is Simpson Bay could be a fit, Random Wind and Coconut Reef as well.
