“Perfect when you are on your cruise”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

We went to St. Maarten and booked SUP and kayaking. Oz was there to get us set up. It was beautiful paddling to the island. Arriving before the ferry we were able to scout out pinel island. Unbelievably beautiful. My wife SUP'ed and I ocean kayaked. Oz gave us a huge dry bag to put all our stuff in it. Although the trade winds were blowing, we easily paddled to the island. Oz had a taxi ready for us to go on to the airport bar to watch the planes land. We highly recommend his group.

“On a cruise and in St. Marrten for the day...GO TO PINEL!!!”
Reviewed February 16, 2014

Our experience with Caribbean paddling was spectacular! We visited St. Martin as part of a cruise excursion and were lucky enough to stumble upon Oz and Caribbean paddling through the internet. He referred us to a cab company (Joyce was awesome) which took us from Pburg to his establishment. From there, we kayaked to Pinel and it was absolutely fabulous, The island, the water, the hike, the food, and the mojitos were out of this world. If you have a chance to work with Oz and go to Pinel, YOU MUST GO! He is very easy to work with, so much so, that on the way back to the ship, he called the cab to let them know that we had forgotten our camera. What amazing service! Holly and Ken Welsh

“Fun in the sun!”
Reviewed February 14, 2014

A wonderful experience! A must do when visiting St. Martin. A group of us rented a two person kayak and 2 paddle boards. Arrived on a small corner of Pinel Island and saw some cool shells and beautiful white sand! Bring sunscreen!

“Great Fun”
Reviewed February 12, 2014

Just do it! Super fun experience and amazing price for Sup rental. 1 hour in US can be the price of a whole day rental on vacation? Usually it's the other way around. Also what better place to try it out than in calm protected water. Have fun.

“Great experience”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

We rented kayaks and paddle boards from Caribbean paddle while on a cruise. We had a great time. The boards were in good shape, they set us up, provided dry bags and got us on our way. Since it was windy we kayaked to the island and they brought the boards to us. Oz and the young lady (sorry I did not get her name) were so friendly and helpful, both that day and leading up to our reservation. My nephew lost his sunglasses and the young lady even offered to look for them and contact if by some amazing chance she found them. This was a great experience and I would highly recommend. We rented for a half day but could have easily stayed all day.
