Friendly & Fun Crew
razucena95

I HIGHLY recommend this trip. The crew was super friendly and a lot of fun, the views were incredible, and there was plenty to eat and drink! I usually avoid day trips/tours because I get bored and tired easily, but that definitely wasn't the case on this tour. I had a great time and would go again! TIP: Please don't bring children on this tour, as it's definitely more of a "booze cruise."

You said it all, with Eagle Tours, you cant be bored. We have family friendly tours like Eco Tour, Ultimate Prickly Pear and Anguilla Tour. Thank you for your time sending us your positive feed back, i will share with the crew. Have a very nice week end Sophie

Captain Koy and mates Tina and Vanessa were first rate. We sailed to Tintamarre Island and Captain Koy went above and beyond to spot Turtles and he made sure the the guest who were a little concerned about getting in the water, got to experience seeing the Turtles and they were so grateful for the attention to detail he paid to them. Just a wonderful day with a wonderful crew, and I will do this tour again the next time I visit At Maarte,

Had great time on this tour. Boat was in great condition. Staff was friendly and professional. One side of the island was very choppy and several of us did not feel too well. Once we rounded the island it was smooth sailing thankfully. Lots of fish at snorkeling sites.

Our family had a great time - the weather was a bit windy, but we had a great time regardless. A beautiful trip filled with sun, scenery, swimming, and snorkeling. We have been on similar sailing excursions, but this one was by far more enjoyable. The tour size was perfect and allowed great conversation and compatibility - a great mix of people on board. Also, such an amazing crew very nice and generous. Quick with the drinks, snacks, and points of interest. They made the experience unique and enjoyable. Thanks to all!

Trip was as advertised. The weather was not totally cooperative, but we had fun anyway. My wife a some mobility issues and the crew couldn't had been more accommodating or hospitable. We took a different tour with this company St. Maartin Sailing and Snorkeling to St. Barts last year and were very excited to see that it was same captain and crew. Would recommend and do it again.

This was my 3rd trip to St Maarten and I have done s few excursions but this was by far one of the best! We swam with the turtles at Tintamarre, great snorkeling at Creole Rock and a delicious lunch featuring local seafood! Not only are the stops fantastic but the sail is around the whole island!!

This was just the most amazing day! We had a wonderful time. Can't say enough about the very competent and friendly crew handling the 40 ft. catamarran. There are a few tricky maneuvers along the way and they handled everything just perfectly. Three beautiful stops for swim/snorkle and excellent lunch stop at C'est L:avie in Grand Case. All topped off at the end with a champagne toast!
