“Trip Cancelled due to Weather”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

My husband and I were on the Allure over Labor Day Week, while docked in St Marten the weather was not good due to Tropical Storm Gabriel. When my husband and I went to meet up with Capt Bob, Capt Bob was at the dock waiting for us. He informed us that he felt it wasn't safe to do the speedboat tour but would credit our deposit ASAP. We really appreciated his concern and he credited our deposit immediately. We look forward to the next time that we sail into St Martin. We will definitely be contacting Capt Bob to tour with him. Thank you Capt Bob!

“Island tour with Captain Tyrel”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

The speedboat tour with Captain Tyrel of Pirate Tours/ Soualiga Destinations was the best day of my entire holiday. The boat was fast and spectacular, the views and sites we visited were amazing, the service perfect (special thanks to Captain Bob for arranging transport and very good communication!). Snorkling made everybody excited as many different fish could be seen.
Captain Tyrel is a very nice guy and a very good guide. Informative, funny, enthousiastic, full of stories, and paid attention to everybody on his boat. Cold drinks were available the entire trip, the lunch was also very good. I would definitely recommend this tour! Price vs quality is better than good!

“We had the time of our lives!!”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

We took the Soualiga Excursion last year with Capt. Bob Cass and enjoyed it so much that we took a second one before we left St. Martin! It was once again at the top of the list of things we wanted to do this year when we returned to St. Martin. We had a different Captain this year, Chris, who was so nice and very informative. We love snorkeling, the beautiful water and the places that the trip takes you to. The lunch is delicious and all the people on our boat became new friends. You absolutely will not be dissapointed!

“This day excursion had it all..”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

All the excellent reviews were valid. The company was meticulous about making sure you have a fabulous time, see everything on the itinerary, and make sure you were safe. And, if you are on cruise ship and are worried about getting back on ship on time, don't, they are very on top of the timing as many of the folks on board are on cruise ships...

There's great food, the other folks on the tour are great and you feel like you are on friends ship.!. Also, the captain that day, Chris, was fantastic--- My hat blew off in like 20 seconds of taking off , and he made sure to go back, and retrieve it, .!.
