- Snorkel and Beach Adventure
Take a thrilling ride aboard a power raft to one of St. Maarten's best snorkeling locations followed by a relaxing visit to a beautiful beach. First, your captain will set a course down the scenic coast to Simpson Bay Lagoon and on to the other side of the island, past Marigot and on to your special snorkeling spot. Then, after a safety briefing, you'll don the provided snorkel gear and dip into the Caribbean's clean calm.

Next is a cruise around the north coast of the island at of one of St. Maarten's world famous white sand beaches for swimming, beach combing, and relaxing.

Have your underwater camera handy; the visibility of the waters off St. Maarten ranges between 75 and 125 feet, all the better to observe the fringing coral reefs, submerged rocks, sea turtles, and schools of small colorful fish.

Once on the soft white sand, you'll be served refreshments as you soak up the stunning environment of coconut palms, seagrape trees and endless blue sky.

When you pass under the Dutch side drawbridge, you'll marvel at the large, private yachts and eye-popping million dollar homes of the rich and famous. En route to your special snorkeling spot, you'll travel from one side of the island to the other, and pass the French capital of Marigot before crossing under the French-side drawbridge and finally venturing out to sea.
