    What to Expect
    We start the tour Bobbys Marina , Philipsburg. After a short safety briefing we will begin our cruise towards Simpson Bay Lagoon where you can view million dollar yachts. The cruise will continue on to the border between the Dutch and the French side of St Maarten. After pass under the French side bridge,we will stop at Marigot, the french-side capitol,for a quick photo opportunity. Finally we are off to Creole Rock to our first destination .

    Creole Rock is part of the French National Park and it is the best snorkeling spot on island. There you can see many different types of tropical fish including Sergeant Majors, Parrot fish, as well as hard and soft corals. You will feel like you are in an Aquarium! Enjoy 45 minutes of carefree swimming and snorkeling.

    Back on board take advantage of our open bar full of water, sodas, juices,beer and the famous rum punch. If you get hungry there will also be snacks and fruit available. Sit back and relax on the boat as we take a longer cruise to the west side of the island passing Happy Bay, Marigot, Baie Rouge and Plum Bay. We will make a brief stop to say a few words about the history of the Island then we will arrive in La Samana for our outstanding beach stop. Spend a good hour on the white sand beaches of La Samana and enjoy our famous floating bar! Snorkeling is also available here upon request.

    Last but not least we will go to Maho Beach for a short while, the home Princess Julianna International Airport , where we will try to catch a plane landing or taking off.

    The last leg of tour is a 15 minute fun ride to all the way back to the dock.

    We had a great time on this tour. They were very understanding when we arrived at the wrong location, and had the boat come get us. The tour guide was very entertaining and knowledgeable about the area.
