We were not originally booked on the around the island tour on Spellbound, but were referred to them when we found out our catamaran was undergoing repairs.. First let me say the crew was very nice and friendly, but not impressed with overall tour for the following reasons. Some type of breakfast should have been provided, lunch consisted of a platter of ribs and chicken, Caesar salad and pasta salad. Not enough food for 14 passengers and 3 crew. People mentioned about being hungry. Some type of sweet/dessert would be a nice touch at the end of the meal. The rum punches flowed to a point that many adults did not know their limits and had difficulty standing and walking. Smoking...let’s not go there. If a drink wasn’t in hand or in both hands a cigarette was. 10 chain smokers out of 14 passengers. If you do not smoke this can be extremely annoying since it couldn’t be avoided. One issue that many complained about was the small thin ladder steps getting back onto the catamaran from swimming, very difficult. I would not consider this an upscale catamaran tour, there are better choices out there.

Best value, best service, best food, best people! We took a full day trip around the entire island with about 15 people total, probably the best money we have spent. Flynn and Olga did an awesome job making sure we had a drink in our hand the entire time. The ribs and chicken that Andre cooked for lunch were some of the best in St Maarten. Olga pointed out different beaches and landmarks as we went, so it was a great way to see the whole island. The snorkeling and swimming was so refreshing. Book this trip!!!!

What an incredible day on the water sailing around the beautiful island of St Maarten with Capt. Ian and First Mate Flynn. The day, the boat, the island's beauty as seen from the water, the entire experience thoroughly exceeded our expectations. From the snorkeling, eating, drinking, sailing and most importantly, the crew made for a day my wife and our family we will always cherish. Even though we were unable to visit Anguilla or Prickly Pear due to pandemic restrictions we did anchor off Tintamarre for lunch enjoying Capt. Ian's special ribs & chicken. (interesting history of this little spit of land off the NE coast of St Martin) . As the sun set and we headed in Captain Ian provided a delicious snack of curried chicken. Their genuine hospitality and friendliness made for an experience of a lifetime. Thank you Captain Ian and 1st Mate Flynn

Wow, 4 of us chartered Capt. Ian's boat for an all day birthday celebration, and this memory ranks amongst the top 5 experiences any of us have ever had!! The down home hospitality, the views, the homemade food, the drinks, and the whole experience was amazing. Nothing super fancy, but that's not our style anyway and everything was outstanding in our book. We loved how comfortable we felt right away with Capt Ian, and Flynn was a real charm to be around as well and he made sure our every wish was handled before we could think twice. Ian went out of his way and even prepared a special birthday treat just for us. We highly recommend a private tour. Spring for a private cruise, the memory is priceless!!

Ian gave us an amazing day sailing around SXM, beautiful beaches, snorkeling and “occasional” beverage. His selection of music kept great vibe too!
