What You Can Expect

St Maarten Shore Excursion: Sailing Tour with Snorkeling and Paddleboarding

Sail in St Maarten while in port!

Once your cruise ship docks at St Maarten's port, find your way to Simpson Bay, about 6 miles (9.5 kilometers) west of the cruise port.

Meet your friendly captain and crew, then hop aboard the 54-foot (16-meter) 'Random Wind', a luxury sailboat that will be your home base for the next 5 hours. Find a spot in one of the 3 'chill lounges', which include cushioned seats and stereo systems. With only twenty-two people on board, there is plenty of room to spread out and watch the tropical island scenery pass by as you sail.

After sailing up the coast, stop at 2 different beaches to explore, visiting both the Dutch and French sides of the island. Head ashore for a mud bath or a stroll on the powdery sand, swim, snorkel or take out one of the yacht's stand-up paddleboards. Hop on to the boat's rope swing to sail out over the water and cannonball in.

Sip drinks from the open bar, including top-shelf liquor as well as beer, juice and bottled water. Enjoy homemade coconut chicken with rice and other traditional Caribbean dishes, prepared fresh on board.

Your tour ends back at the starting point in Simpson Bay, from where you can make your own way back to the cruise port.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

Kimberly and Trever were excellent hosts. The ship is beautiful. The swing is a lot of fun, but there was a gymnast on the trip who was WAY better at swinging. I tried to match her moves, and ... well ... was less than successful. All in all, my wife and I really enjoyed the adventure and would highly recommend it to anyone!


5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2016

Fantastic! Great crew. The Captain wasn't nearly as salty as the other reviews say. I believe it's his dry whit. Great food and fun! We got the pleasure of having a dog on board. Would go again.

Beautiful and comfortable boat. Snorkeling unremarkable. The Tarzan swing was a kick for every age! Food was fine.

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better February 2016

The captain Trevor was gruff and angry. I understand safety precautions, but yelling at people before they even board the ship or dinghy is not a way to start off something thats supposed to be a fun experience. There was no music onboard, and it was a very boring excursion.
