What You Can Expect

St Maarten Gourmet Sailing and Snorkel Cruise

Snorkel in St Maarten!

Make your way to the St Maarten Yacht Club and Bar in the mid-morning to embark on your 4.5-hour sailing adventure.
Meet your friendly, expert crew when you climb aboard the 'Passaat', a 100-foot (30-meter) historical schooner that was built in 1911. Find a spot to relax on deck and grab a soda, wine, beer or rum punch from the bar. Get to know the other passengers in your group, limited to twenty people to ensure personalized attention and an intimate experience. 
As you sail up the coastline of St Maarten, the captain will cut the engines and unfurl the sails. Munch on a homemade coconut or banana cake, accompanied by tropical fruits, and listen to the soothing sounds of the wind and the waves. 
When the boat drops anchor in Long Bay, on the French side of the island, dive in for some snorkeling in the warm, calm water. Swim among schools of tropical fish and the living coral, exploring the underwater world.
Back on deck, dig in to a traditional Caribbean lunch of chicken, mahi mahi, rice and plantains. (Please request vegetarian options in advance). 
When lunch is finished, enjoy the views or take a nap on the sun-drenched deck as the boat returns to the harbor after 4.5 hours.

It was wonderful! My husband and I had so much fun. Strangely enough, we met folks from our home, Massachusetts and New Hampshire, on the trip. The food was beautifully presented and tasted out of this world. Pieter and Marion were gracious hosts. I would highly recommend this to anyone. Five Stars!

My wife and I had a great time on this trip! The crew was a very friendly Dutch couple, and there was loads of room on the boat. They prepared us a legitimately delicious lunch, along with homemade rum cake, and they kept our drinks full. This was the perfect trip for my wife and I, since she would have gotten seasick on one of the smaller boats, and we got to enjoy the company of the other passengers and crew on board this massive sail boat. We also enjoyed the snorkeling in Long Bay.

A good sail out past beautiful beaches and the airport. After setting anchor, the snorkel had schools of fish and other sea life teaming in the natural cutouts and eddies in water by the rocks. A fine repast was served back aboard the vessel. Captain and crew knew their business and enjoy a life on the water. A relaxing sail back to port completed a fun tour with plenty of drink, good exercise and food.
