Owner description: The hottest new adventure on St. Maarten / St. Martin. Power Rafting is an amazing way to see St. Maarten and the surrounding island of Anguilla is by hopping on one of our all day power rafting trips. Imagine you and some close friends zipping through the turquoise waters of the Caribbean, visiting secret locations that look like something from a post card. The rafts are fast, fun, and very safe. On the power rafting trips, our fun and knowlegable guides take you to visit three locations in one day: Creole Rock, Tintamarre and Pinel. In addition to food and drinks, this tour also includes some of the world's best snorkeling and beach lounging.

“Best excursion, hands down”
Reviewed July 30, 2014

This excursion was by far the best we have ever done. This was our 4th Carnival cruise in recent years, and myself, my husband and our two teen sons LOVED this excursion. It was a choppy day on the water, and the captain of the power raft was excellent in making the trip pleasurable. Both tour guides were friendly, generous and knowledgeable about the island. It was a perfect excursion. Would do this again, 100%.

“Wonderful day in SXM”
Reviewed July 29, 2014

My family and I were on a Carnival Cruise and did the Power Rafting Excursion July 24. What a blast. My children 18, 15 and 6 years old all loved this outing. We would do it again if in SXM. Had a lot to see while snorkeling and we loved the beach Pierre and Chris took us to. A lot of information about the Dutch and French side of St. Maarten.

“A Wonderful Experience!”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

This excursion is perfect for families and was lots of fun! Our guides, Trevor and Melisa were absolutely wonderful. Trevor would stop to give interesting facts along the way and Melisa was willing to assist you with any of your needs. The boat ride in itself was an adventure, and it was very enjoyable to watch the scenery speed past you. The snorkel site was absolutely beautiful. They provided us with bread so the fish would come right up to you. The beach was picture perfect and we didn't want to get out of the crystal clear water. Melisa kindly swam in the ocean as well, pulling along a portable beverage station for those who wanted a refreshment while relaxing on the beautiful sand. It was a phenomenal experience and my family highly recommends giving it a try.

“A great day on SXM.”
Reviewed July 7, 2014 via mobile

My family and I went on a snorkeling and swim excursion with this outfit while visiting SXM on Royal Caribbean's Oasis of the Seas in early July 2014. We enjoyed our tour very much. The raft was fast, which means that you can spend more time in the water and less time getting to the site. The guide also provided a lot of interesting information about the island, and pointed out some of the differences between the French and Dutch sides of SXM. The snorkeling site was great. The only thing that I wish had been different was the life vests. The other your we went on in USVI provided inflatable vests for use during the snorkeling session that could be deflated if you wanted to dive while snorkeling. The vests can then be re-inflated with a few puffs of air when you returned to the surface. The power rafting tour used traditional lifevests, which meant that you had to take the best off if you wants to dive under the water. Still, it was a great day and I highly recommend it.

“Perfect way to enjoy St Maarten”
Reviewed July 1, 2014

Our guides really made this excursion amazing. Trevor and Melisa went above and beyond my expectations! Not only did they take us to beautiful snorkeling and beach destinations, they really made sure that it was fun for us. Trevor was always talking to us and making jokes and playing music during the boat ride. Melisa was always offering everyone drinks. When we went snorkeling, Trevor gave us bread to feed to the fish while we were snorkeling! It's the little things and attention to detail that shows how much people care and Trevor and Melisa were so good to us.
