Our family of 4 including our almost 16 and 17 year old daughters loved this snorkeling adventure. A true highlight of our cruise to the caribbean. Our captain Kevin and first-mate Chris made this charter an unforgettable experience! If we can get back to St. Maarten we would do this charter again in a minute!
Amazing day on the water with Russell. With 2 snorkeling stops, a great lunch at Rainbows, and an awesome tour of the island this was one of the highlights of our trip. The Rum Punch was strong, drinks were plentiful, boat was fast, captain entertaining an knowledgeable. Snorkeling was a blast, saw all kinds of fish at Creole rock, and followed a turtle and spotted ray around at Tintamarre Island. The stop off at Pinel was a nice break in the middle to hang out in the water and go feed the indigenous iguanas on the island. Finished the trip with a water tour of the rich and famous of St. Martin and concluded the trip watching planes land at Princess Juliana airport. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys being on the water and would like a different perspective of the island. Since we had a full boat it was up to Russell to provide entertainment, history and fun all while captaining the boat. He did an amazing job and would recommend him to anyone for a great day on the water.
Billy Bones Boatcharters is fantastic. Balasz, the owner, really makes you feel like family. He will pick you up anywhere you are staying. Captain Jim was great. He makes sure you are having a great time. We loved it so much, we booked 2 trips with them. I would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to do a boat trip and snorkeling.
Capt. Tim had our party of 14 laughing for 6 hours. Best day of our trip!!
The absolute highlight of our vacation! Mika was an awesome boat captain! A beautiful day all around. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting the island. Do it earlier in your stay because you get to see the beautiful island locations on both the French and Dutch sides. When we were dropped off at the dock near our hotel we left behind 3 shirts. By the time we returned from dinner that same day they were waiting for us at our hotel - the boat stopped on its way back and dropped off our items.
We my girlfriend and I had a great time at the boat trip. The crew did everything they could to make it the best possible trip.
The sailing was a bit bumpy which is what you also would expect from speedboat trip.
Do not expect a lot of corals at this trip though a few beautiful fish, awesome turtles and the wonderful beach at Pinel Island.
We definitely recommend this trip for others.
THERE WAS NO BATHROOM. THE LADDER LEADING FOM WATER TO BOAT WAS BROKEN MAKING IT HARD TO GET ON THE BOAT. THE GOURMET LUNCH WAS A HAMBURGER AT A BEACH BAR. THERE WERE FISH BUT NOT LIKE SWIMMING IN AN AQUARIUM. THERE WERE NOT ENOUGH LIFE JACKETS SO MANY HAD TO SWIM WITH A TUBE NOODLE. THERE WERE NO SNACKS AND THE OPEN BAR CONSISTED OF A BOTTLE OF LOCAL RUM PUNCH. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THIS TRIP ESPECIALLY GIVEN THE COST.
