Garfield Fun Charters is now being operated by Coconut Reef Powerboat and Snorkel Tours. The charters were designed by Bruce Hancock a skipper with extensive local knowledge and who wanted customers to experience the hidden gems of St Martin. A chance to escape the crowds, snorkel in pristine clear blue waters, explore uninhabited islands and have a much more intimate and relaxing experience. We are continuing with his vision and want to make your trip with us one you will never forget.

We've been lucky enough to go out on Garfield many times, it's a 'must do' whenever we have family or friends visit us on St Martin. A highlight of any vacation and always a wonderful day to remember even for us seasoned locals!

We were so fortunate to find out about Garfield! This is a very personalized small charter. We took my 9 year old daughter with us for the first time for a snorkeling adventure. Captain Bruce made sure that my daughter will remember this for a very long time. He took us to the calmest of waters where my daughter was... More

Our annual visit wouldn't be the same without going out with Garfield ! We are so spoilt , we'll never go out with anyone else now. This is like going out for the day with family, always personal, always fun, always good company, always wonderful memories. We can't wait to bring our new grandaughter with us. Bruce, you will be...

We have been going to St Maarten since 1991 and have done almost everything there is to do and taken almost every other boat trip. The best part about the Garfield Trip... More

If you are looking for a fun, exciting and adventurous activity to do when you’re in St.Maarten; I would recommend Garfield Fun Charter tours. My personal experience was great. The service was excellent. We spent the day visiting beautiful private islands, snorkeling in the tropical waters and laying on golden sand. The boat was comfortable and spacious; I definitely felt... More
