Captain Morgan's Sailing Adventure

Attraction details
Owner description: Capt. Morgan is a perfect place to spend a lazy afternoon time! Our Captan and the professional crew will take you to experience traditional sailing, on a 65 ft schooner, on a discovery of the beautiful southern coast of the island. You'll see almost all on this trip! You'll see Simpson Bay and Maho Bay (Nowhere else in the world will you get this close to a landing jumbo jet, like a 747 just a few yards above your head. What a rush!), sailing to Baie Longue (Long Bay), once a rich and famous beach on the Island, and one most beautiful and peaceful white sand beaches of the island's, where you will anchor a maximum of 120 ft from the beach for the BBQ lunch on board and swimming or snorkeling (snorkeling equipment provided). Baie Longue offers total tranquility and with this stunning backdrop, everybody can 'de-compress' with the occasional dip in the crystal waters and regular visits to the floating bar. If your goal is simply to relax and do as little as possible, you can recline in comfort on Capt. Morgan's large on-deck sun lounges while sipping the special rum punch and soaking up the sunshine listening to the wonderful Caribbean music. Then you set sail and head back to Philipsburg being pushed along by the trade winds. Relaxing music, a complimentary bar and a tropical fruit salad gets you back to the cruise ship pier. Captain Morgan is not as big as the party boats. Leaving the crowds behind you, Capt. Morgan welcomes a maximum of 25 passengers to ensure an ambiance of private luxury. That leaves plenty of room on the deck with spots of shade and lots of sun. All cruises on Capt. Morgan are staffed by a friendly crew who will accompany you throughout your tour and treat you to fabulous service. By us is never crowded and is well suited for the sun bather who prefers privacy and quiet. Its also perfect for a romantic afternoon picnic with your significant other. Note: Space is limited to no more than 25 passengers. For safety reasons, lounge chairs are not available onboard the schooner. Guests should consider their physical fitness level and medical history when determining whether this tour is appropriate. Guests with cardiac conditions, asthma, diabetes, epilepsy, other heart or respiratory conditions or any other medical condition should take particular caution when selecting a tour with snorkeling/swimming elements. Guests who have concerns should consult with their personal physician before engaging in any activity that may be strenuous for them. The minimum age for participation is 3 years old. There is no beach stop on this tour

Hard to sit like we had to for several hours without cushins or something a bit soft, we payed a lot of money for food - BBQ - and it was one very small serving, and I am a tiny person, did not get near to a full stomach, the snorkeling was nothing, did not see anything but the fish that came for bread feeding from the staff. The stop where the plains arrive almost on the beach was exellent and stunning, apart from that an excursion I unfortunately can not recommend to others

I am not sure why people complained about this tour! It was great, the vessel, the crew, the food, and the time in the water! The food was amazing, Lisa did a great job cooking and serving. Sava the Captain was awesome, pointing out historic land marks all the while keeping our group safe. I will do it again if I get down there! As for the rum punch served in water bottles, I was please that they recycled and cared for the area. The plate of food I was served was way too much and didn't finish it all, but was delish! I am actually amazed that anyone would have complaints. I have cruised extensively, always taken tours offered through the cruise and found this to one to be an exciting, relaxing and wonderful day. ~Jane

Hello,I recently took this excursion. It was very poor.The sailing was okay.
We anchored to snorkel and it was horrible.The only fish we saw was the ones they gave bread to off the site of th boat,The food was a small cut of three ribs,lettuce with mustard and couscous.
I feel like I wasted 200.00.At best this should be 50.00 per person.

We went on this and was very disapointed, not worth the money. There are much nicer ones out there. Crew not very nice, snorkling area was bad and not much to see, the food was fair and as far as the rum punch well if you dont mind being served drinks from used water bottles then this is the trip for you.

Was very excited to go sailing and snorkling but unfortunalely we only saw fish when crew members threw food into water. Barbacue lunch on sail back was average, crew friendly and helpful.
