My wife and I sailed with Funseaker for the 6 hour, three island trip on Sunday, June 8, 2014. We have done many daysails and snorkel excursions on Sint Maarten and St. Martin and this was as good as it gets for a day on the water with some good snorkeling. Captain Sebastien and First Mate Ella were great hosts. We had done snorkel trips over to Creole Rock with Sebastien when he ran watersports at Grand Case Beach Club and expected a good time - but he managed to exceed our expectations. Part of our fantastic experience was the fact that there was only a very nice family of four in addition to the two of us on this trip. But, this brand new boat is a great design for comfortable cruising and I think it would be fine with the maximum that they would take - which I think is 18. Creole Rock is some of the best, if not the best, snorkeling in St. Martin and Sebastien certainly knows it as well as anyone. On the day we went, the white sand and turquoise water at Anguilla were absolutely gorgeous. What really makes this trip as good as it is is Sebastien's joy at having this boat and being able to do these excursions - maybe some of that will wear off after a few years, but right now it helps make your day with him on this boat a really great time. My only comment of constructive criticism was that I found the website a little confusing, BUT we had no trouble meeting the boat at departure in Anse Marcel and they have revised the website some since our trip and there should be no more confusion about when and where. I very strongly recommend an excursion with Funseaker!

We booked this through our hotel Bleu Emeraude in Grand Case, St Martin mainly because the day long trip allowed us to explore the waters at three different stops. We Called on a Wednesday for a Friday Trip and were told that although Friday had already been booked, they are doing an extra trip on Thursday. We were picked up at the dock in Grand Case (and to the ONLY bad review here we didn't have an issue the the pick-up point at all) Once on-board we were pleased to see it was a small group of only 6 others! The Catamaran was beautiful, not one of these utilitarian cruise ship excursion ones, this was luxury all the way! Although I was the only one on the trip who didn't speak French (My GF included) both Captain Seb and Ella made the extra effort to keep me included. Each stop was better than the last, and the Lunch we had on Anguilla was among the best food we had the entire vacation! We will ABSOLUTELY be back aboard hopefully sooner rather than later! In the meantime I'll practice my French! Thanks guys!

Spent a wonderful day with Captain Seb and his crew highlighting a monthlong stay in St Maarten. It was our favorite experience! Snorkeling, lunch on the beach in Anguilla and an easy comfortable ride made for a first class experience. Bring only a towel and your passport, how easy is that?
We'll be back.

Wow, Sebastien the Captain was amazing and a true professional at his craft. We boated from St. Martin to Anguilla and to some smaller islands in between.

10/10 - would recommend for sure - bring some good music too because the boat has a great sound system!

We were 6 friends with a private charter for the day. We were picked up by Captain Sebastien Alexandre early in the morning off the dock of the beach in Nettle Bay in Saint-Martin right near to our villa in Terres Basses. Boarding the amazing Funseaker yacht, we were greeted by a smiling Ella who served us a breakfast plate and fresh coffee. The Captain asked us our plans, and off we were. Barely out of the bay and already down 2 coffees serving as wakeup juice, we got the first bottles of champagne out in celebration of our friend's birthday. Stopping by for a bit of snorkeling at Île Tintamarre, we enjoyed a popular area for sea turtles and snorkelers heaven. The ultimate destination was Anguilla where we witnessed the whitest sand beach I had ever seen, with crystal clear salt water and a very shallow waterline. Once the anchor was dropped and a second bottle of champagne navigating through our blood stream, Captain Sebastien went off to handle our reservation at The Place Beach Restaurant and our immigration papers while we enjoyed the wonderful sunshine, diving off the FunSeaker and paddle boarding. At the restaurant we chose tables with our feet in the warm sand and let the scenery soak in with great meals and nourishing Red Stripe beers. After a little relaxation we split up for more paddle boarding, walk on the beach, swimming and sharing smiles all around on the shores of Anguilla. Back on the FunSeaker for a quick trip to a preferred view of the sunset we received a lovely surprise from the Captain who offered us a full plate of Macaron deserts of all flavors. Absolutely delicious and a much appreciated gesture. A small coffee break to go along and open another bottle of champagne. We arrive at Grand Case shortly after and enjoy a stunning sunset and then back to the private marina for the end of our journey. What made this most exceptional is the Captain's attention to details, generosity, and loveable personality. A true gentleman, through his knowledge and leadership we enjoyed an unbelievably memorable private charter. Don't forget your camera.
