We booked the Friday Farewell Tour with Eagle Tours.I am not sure why they call it the Farewll tour, a better name would be Around the Island Tour. The company sent a bus to pick us up from where we were staying. Once at the dock, we boarded the beautiful catamaran(Quality Time) that had adequate seating both in and out of the shade. There were two restrooms on board. The staff served punch and rum punch as we pulled out of the Marina and began our voyage around beautiful St. Martin. At our first stop, La Samanna, the staff gave out snorkle gear to anyone interested. I would say 60% of the passengers got off the boat and snorkeled in the calm waters. One of the crew came out on a rubber dinghy and made sure everyone was okay. Once we all were back aboard, we set sail for our next stop, Happy Beach, an area only accessible by land if you are willing to take a fifteen minute walk from where you park. We had this on our list of places we had wanted to visit and were thrilled that we were able to approach it from water A crew member served drinks in the ocean to anyone who wanted. Talk about service.Back opn board,sandwiches were available as well as an open bar which remained open all day. Once we left this area, we sailed up past Marigot to the beautiful area of Grand Case, known for its fine restaurants. The boat came as close to shore as possible as then we were taken to shore on the rubber dinghy(some swam) where we had a wonderful lunch in Calmos Cafe, on the beach with our toes in the sand. We had eaten dinner there the previous night and the lunch menu was pretty similar to what we were offered for dinner so I was shocked that this was all included in the price of the tour. ( I believe the cost of the tour was about $110 each). After our wonderful lunch, it was back on board to our final stop, Orient Bay Beach (see my separate review, my favorite beach in St. Martin). On our way back to the Marina, the crew sang and danced and all the passangers got involved, it was a fun way to end a beautiful day.
