What You Can Expect

St Maarten Catamaran Snorkel Sail

Snorkel in St Maarten!

Following pickup at your hotel on St Maarten, transfer to the harbor to meet your catamaran. Climb aboard and meet your expert captain and crew, then find a spot on the deck to watch the shoreline recede as the boat makes its way out into the turquoise Caribbean waters.

Make your first stop at one of the island's most lauded beaches; Happy Bay, Baie Rouge or La Samanna, depending on the day's conditions. Upon arrival at any one of these unspoiled beaches, spend time walking the sandy shore, swimming in the calm waters or snorkeling. The crew is on hand to provide you with any instruction or guidance you may need, and all snorkeling equipment and floating lounges are available for use. 

Go ashore at Grand Case, the island's culinary capital, to enjoy a gourmet 3-course lunch. Sit down at one of the restaurants the line the beach, enjoying the ocean breeze and sunshine along with your delectable food and glass of French wine. After lunch, explore Grand Case or take a dip in the ocean during some free time.

Back aboard the boat, continue sailing around the island toward Orient Bay. At either Anse Marcel or Green Cay, jump in the water for the day's final dip in the ocean. The boat will then head back to the dock at Great Bay, where you'll disembark and be dropped off back at your hotel.

Took some friends on the trip around the island. It was our second time and it was amazing. The crew was very professional and friendly. You gotta do it when you go to St. Marrten.

My husband and I were originally scheduled to do this tour on Tues, June 10th, but I came down with a 24 hour bug and we couldn't make it. My husband met the driver at the designated spot and told him we wouldn't be going and we didn't think anything more of it. I figured we were just SOL on the money I spent. About an hour later we got a call from the company asking if we wanted to reschedule for Friday! I couldn't believe it and we of course said yes. That was so nice of them and we really enjoyed the trip. The crew was great and the snorkeling was awesome. The open bar was a plus and we were out all day with numerous stops around the island. I would recommend this tour group to everyone who wants a good time with "Quality Time"! Thanks again for a great vacation.

A great day. The snorkeling that day was not clear and the captain truly did his best to find a few spots. I got to see several different beaches not seen before. We have been going to The island for several years so this was a treat. Last beach stop was Orient. The boat wasn't too crowded , still enough to make it enjoyable. Definitely worth taking again!

We really enjoyed out day on the Catamaran. We had a group with varying swimming abilities - some swam very well, others could not swim at all. Everyone had a good time on the boat, in the water, and at the restaurant. The crew was extremely helpful and friendly. The restaurant food was excellent. We had a great day of sailing, sunning, making new friends. Definitely recommend this to anyone who wants to spend a day on the water.

This is our third trip to St, Martin. The Golden Eagle Cruise was by far the most enjoyable guided excursion we have encountered. The 2010 59 foot catamaran was a beautiful boat, the captain and crew were exceptional, and they way the day was organized made it fun, exciting and relaxing. I would recommend this cruise to anyone--a great value.

We had a wonderful time at The 'Too Much Rum', which was a boat for smaller group. The tripulation was very funny, we had a very nice lunch at this French restaurant and a very nice time at the beaches and a very good time, the weather was just perfect.
