Eco Snorkel & Beach Tour
Enjoy a sightseeing adventure along St. Maarten’s calmer coast with snorkeling and beach stops at only the most beautiful beaches and lively reefs. This tour is perfect for cruise ship passengers, we pick up right at the cruise ship terminal. Includes open bar on the boat all day and tasty snacks!
Enjoy the Leeward side of St. Maarten aboard Billie Bones, a powerboat designed to make the most of the Caribbean with spacious seating, very reliable and quiet engines. Throughout the tour, Billie Bones cruises at safe speeds to make sure everyone is as comfortable as can be.
To make the tour even more thrilling, guests will find themselves cruising through all three bridges of the biggest lagoon in the Caribbean. Prepare to be stunned by fancy yachts and superstar villas on this tour!
This exciting tour departs from either Skip Jack;s restaurant in Simpson Bay or the cruise ship terminal in Philipsburg.
From the departure point, Billie Bones cruises along the Leeward side of St. Maarten up to Simpson Bay where you enter the lagoon by passing under the very famous Dutch draw bridge that many mega yachts squeeze through.
Once within the lagoon, you will immediately see luxurious yachts harboured at marinas all around you but the tour doesn’t stop here! Billie Bones keeps moving ahead all the way up to the French side of the island by passing one bridge in the middle of the lagoon and then another leading out to sea once again.
As Billie Bones meets the ocean, she picks up speed and shoots straight for Creole Rock passing very close by Marigot, Friar’s Bay and Grand case, all French towns that are part of St. Martin.
The first stop of the day is Creole Rock, a beautiful reef and rock situated just outside the bay of grand case and part of the French nature reserve. This stop is all about snorkeling, the crew will hand out snorkel equipment and provide thorough snorkel instructions to beginners. Be prepared to see fish up close as this is a protected area and the sea life isn’t shy at all!
After the snorkel adventure at Creole Rock, everyone jumps back aboard and Billie Bones heads to its next stop at either Happy Bay, Long Bay or one of the many other stunning beaches that the island has to offer. The beach of the day is chosen according to the current weather conditions so as to provide the best experience possible for all guests or should we say pirates?
The beach stop is a huge favourite thanks to the floating bar, fun crew, tropical blue waters and amazing scenery that make it an unforgettable Caribbean experience.
After this very wet beach stop, Billie Bones then cruises back down the coast to the departure point of the tour passing by Maho beach and the world famous Juliana Airport where planes land just off the water and crowds. If you are lucky, you might just find yourself standing only a few feet below a jumbo jet as it lands. A scary yet thrilling experience that must be tried!
This tour is a must for anyone interested in seeing the most that St. Maarten has to offer in only half a day.
