What You Can Expect

St Maarten Sunset Schooner Cruise

St Maarten Sunset Schooner Cruise

Make your way to Simpson Bay on St Maarten's southwestern coast to meet your sunset cruse. Board the 'Passaat,' a Dutch schooner dating from 1911. Passaat is the Dutch word meaning 'trade winds.'

Step up to the open bar and order a glass of wine, a beer, a soda or a rum punch and enjoy the scenic views of the coastline. Enjoy the fading sunlight and the slight Caribbean breeze as you munch on the provided snacks. 

Groove to the onboard music and watch the sun sink toward the waterline, painting fiery colors across the tropical skies. As the stars pop out one by one, relax on the deck and enjoy the tranquil ambiance. Bring a long-sleeved shirt or jacket for the cooler breezes that blow over the ocean after the sun sets.

After approximately 2 hours of cruising, the schooner will return to Simpson Bay. Disembark and continue your evening from there.

We had a very enjoyable time. Met some interesting people, had as much of the free flowing libations as we liked. Also enjoyed the various delicious hors d'oeuvres. The wind was brisk and on the beam. A beautiful sunset sail.

3 star rating: Worth doing February 2016

It was interesting and good for families with kids or more seasoned adults - very low key and quiet. There were only two kinds of snacks, both of which I couldn't eat. Also, the drinks are very basic like a couple of beers, white wine, or sodas. There wasn't music or any kind of ambiance. I heard that if you're looking for more of that kind of vibe for younger childless adults that the mid-day cruises are much better.
