Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: 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.

“What a great time!!!”
Reviewed March 3, 2013

Just got back from St. Maarten and Turtle Tours - Ray and Bonnie run a great show! Loved putt-putting around, seeing the mega-yachts, visiting the shops and restaurants at Marina Royale, and in general just relaxing on the water! Would certainly do it again when we're back on the island. Try it - you won't be disappointed

“THE BEST! Way to See St. Martin”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

My husband and I recently discovered the beauty and charm of St. Martin in the best possible way. We rented a boat! On a beautiful island – and this is one of the most colorful and picturesque we’ve ever seen! – there is no better way to get around. At Turtle Tours, Bonnie and Ray couldn’t have been nicer, setting us up with a fun little Boston Whaler for an unbelievable dream of a day on Simpson Bay. We received an excellent map, directions and extra care to make sure we would be totally safe. My husband’s long ago boating experience came back to him “like riding a bike” and zipping around the lagoon was a blast! When we docked at the outdoor market in very French Marigot, it was like we landed in a foreign country. My complaint about St. Martin is that getting around takes waiting for taxis and spending precious time in a car. My one complaint about St. Martin is that getting around (especially if you are on the Atlantic side like we were) takes waiting for taxis and spending precious time in a car. Who wants to do that on vacation?? We stayed at the Westin on the Atlantic Ocean, which although beautiful and relaxing, does not allow the ability to walk anywhere so cab riding is a must and gets expensive. Seeing this gorgeous place from the water was absolutely the way to go! We sailed by ship wrecks, viewed gorgeous villas on the mountainsides, saddled up to jaw dropping yachts and felt the thrill of a plane taking off right over our heads. After saying goodbye to our new French friends in Marigot we headed back to Turtle Tours’ dock to savor our adventure. As John let out the throttle and I waved hello to a couple on a passing sail boat, I didn’t feel like a tourist or even someone on vacation: I was living the dream!

“Great time”

Rent a boat for a day and you will be very happy. Drove it around the lagoon with the wife and kids hitting several restaurants, watching the other boats and some sailing races. Next trip that's the first thing I do

“THE BEST!!!!”
Reviewed January 13, 2013

Raymond and Bonnie were SOOO delightful (as was their sweet son, Romeo!). They are originally from the states so communication was a breeze. We were so happy to meet them and to be able to rent one of their boats. We had a great day out in the sun enjoying the water from a perspective that many don't get to see! We look forward to reconnecting with them in the future! Thank you for helping us to create great memories!

“Good fun. Great to deal with.”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Ray & Bonnie were awesome to deal with. We went to see Xsquisite rentals first, they are very French and had no interest in doing business. (once they found someone that new a little english).
The boats are in pretty good shape for rentals. A bit under powered, but that is probably the norm for rentals. Go and enjoy!
