Brief

  • On this tour you visit a shallow reef & wreck snorkel site (15-25ft), enjoyed by both novice and experienced snorkelers.  The excursion is accessible as of age 6.
  • The various underwater wrecks are home to an abundance of tropical species.
  • Drinks onboard are included : bottled water, soda's, fruit punch.  Rum punch is served, only after the swim/snorkel portion.
  • This activity is part of a snorkel/dive combo trip.  So, if you have scuba friends or relatives, you can all stay together on 1 boat with the same destination.  Divers pay different fees and sign up for the St. Maarten 2-hr Intro to Diving (for beginners) or the St. Maarten 2-hr Certified Shallow 1-tank-dive here on Gopackup.com.
  • The tour duration is 2 hours, so, if you're cruising and in port for just 1 day, you'll still have ample time to address the other activities on your St. Maarten to-do list.
  • Our boat can drop you off in the heart of capital Philipsburg, for beach time, shopping, watersports, museum, local cuisine, etc.

Tour departure is at 9:30 AM Sint Maarten time.  Important note : Please make sure to understand your ship's time.  Outside Daylight Saving Time, certain ships sail on Eastern Time, which makes for a 1-hour difference with local time !
