“What a day, thanks Neil!”
Reviewed August 18, 2014

We joined the Celine catamaran and her famous captain, Neil, for a day trip to Tintamarre and Happy Bay. We had an excellent time, the drinks were great and the BBQ lunch that was served was delicious. They also offered a seafood Paella!!! Service was great all day and they even installed umbrellas on the beach for us. At the end of the day, they made frozen BBCs which were amazing too. You can't do better than that!

“A great way to relax.”
Reviewed August 10, 2014

Several months ago we went on an all day trip on Celine to Tintemarre and it was wonderful. This time we went on the 3/4 day trip. It was a beautiful day that started with fresh bread, fruit and pastries from La Sucriere. Captain Neil and First Mate Tamara make every effort to see to our needs and comfort One feels very secure and relaxed in their capable hands. Our fisrt stop was Mullet Bay which seems to be popular with the larger charter operations as well. Upon seeing the people crowded onto those boats I must say it added an entire new level of appreciation for our experience. As there were 8 of us aboard Celine it was like our own private yacht. A much more relaxing experience. Soon we moved on to La Samana, a lovely quiet beach for snorkeling and swimming. Capt Neil and Tamara were very helpful with getting flippers and such on and off the younger children. Lunch was again on par with any of the finer restaurants in town. I was positive the people on the crowded charters were not having paella, or slow cooked ribs, or the beautiful salads were were offered. Finally we went up to Baie Rouge for a swim and snorkeling, the a lovely leisurely cruise back to Simpson Bay. I can't thank Capt Neil and Tamara enough for the wonderful my family had with them. Can't wait to do it again!

“A MUST GO When In St. Martin!!!”
Reviewed August 10, 2014 via mobile

With only a couple days left on the island, my boyfriend and I were given a full day to go snorkeling and boating around St. Martin. My boyfriend has never been out of the states so when he heard he could snorkel with sea turtles we just had to go! From the minute we got on the boat Tamara and Capt. Neal had a lovely breakfast full of fresh fruit, cheese, pastries and yogurt. While we sailed to Tintamar I had 2 of Tamaras Awesome Spicy Bloody Mary's and enjoyed all the sites Capt. Neal showed us. After a long snorkel trip full of the most beautiful fish, a sea turtle and a sting ray we came back for lunch and I was shocked to see the beautiful family style meal laid out for us. As a foodie I don't know how they did it in such a short period of time but I will forever be trying to recreate everything I put on my plate. Has anyone had the short ribs?? I would love to know how they were made! Haha, well anyway...if you want a great trip for your family or with your spouse, this will definitely be a hit!! I will be back next time I visit for sure. Thank you Capt. Neal and Tamara!!!

“Best of the island!!”
Reviewed August 6, 2014

It was a beautiful evening on July 31 when we boarded the boat for the Pub Crawl. Greeted by
Captain Neil and First Mate Tamara with a drink of your choice. We had 9 people on board so we were all encouraged to sit on the bow of the boat. Sailing in the bay at night, with the twinkling lights from the shore line, and the warm island breezes blowing gently, and Tamara making sure everyone had all they wanted to drink was the perfect setting for all the friendly shipmates. The restaurants were the best we experienced while on the island. Don't miss this one!!!!!!

“First Class Excursion for Amazing Food/Drinks”
Reviewed August 3, 2014

We did the Celine Charter for the Pub Crawl on 7/31, and had such a wonderful time. We arrived a bit early and had a drink at the Boca Marina Yacht Club while we waited to board. The size of the crowd was only 9 people plus two crew, so it was not crowded at all. We took off promptly and were off to our first stop. The crew always made sure you had the beverage of your choice (my group had the rum punch - perfect, no too strong or weak - and you never had an empty glass unless you wanted to! The staff were on-point with service, friendly, and funny! We stopped at three places and had an appetizer, main course, and desert along with a drink of your choice at each stop. Absolutely worth the money and time! We would use this company for their other excursions on another trip, hands down! If you like a good adventure story, ask the Capt. about crossing the Atlantic on the Celine! Great story over a drink at the end of the trip! Highly recommend!
