My family of four visited St. Martin in mid-April. We'd made arrangements months earlier with Capt. Bob for a snorkeling excursion. Capt. Bob responded prompted to my emails with all the details and directions we needed, and he was dock-side upon our arrival to greet us. We enjoyed a wonderful day circling the entire island, stopping to snorkel. Unlimited beverages... More

We were on a cruise ship and this was a great day. I reserved via e-mail and had a great experience. The small group was a great change from large tours and we loved the whole day. Highly recommend Soualiga Destinations

This was a perfect way to take in all the island views! Sint Maarten/St Martin is beautiful and there is no better way to experience its beauty than to glide across its pristine waters. Our captain for the day was captain Joel and he was wonderful! The waves in open water are much bigger than they look from the shoreline,... More

No details missed. Winds a bit high but made the ride more adventurous! Captain opted to change course for safety sake. He knew the ins and outs of different inlets and bays. Saw some great wild life! Boat was clean! Lunch on the beach was great as was ice cream afterwards! Great not competing with cruise ship excursions...we were from... More

Directions to pick up area were very clear and easy to follow. Everything was very organized when we arrive and we were quickly on our way. Our captain and first mate were super cool. They were full of information but did not dominate the conversation. Snorkeling was great but it would have been nicer to go somewhere less crowded. Kids... More
