Itinerary:

Boarding begins at Dock Maarten in Phillipsburg at 9:00AM, where you will meet with your friendly captain and crew. Once everyone has checked in and made their way onboard, your captain will give a short briefing about your speedboat, general safety and overview of the day.

Shortly after your departure, you will come into Simpson Bay Bridge and enter the largest lagoon in the Caribbean. Here you can marvel at some of the most iconic and impressive mega yachts in the world all lined inside the lagoon. Exit out the French side at Sandy Ground bridge and out to the open Caribbean Sea.

The First stop is at the very north point of St Martin to the uninhabited island of Tintamarre. Here you can relax on the soft white sandy beach or snorkel in the protected marine reserve and experience sea turtles and other tropical sealife in their natural habitat.

Leaving Tintamarre, your captain will take you for a short ride over to the small but vibrant Pinel Island. This is a great spot to hangout in shallow calm waters or to get a refreshing cocktail at one of 2 popular beach restaurants. It can also be fun to pay a visit to the big schools of Iguanas and feed them.

Next you will enjoy a delicious picnic on board, take your pick at a variety selection of sandwiches, served with chips and a fresh apple. There is also a tasty option for our vegetarian guests. This is included in your fare.

After you have eaten will head to Creole Rock. An amazing rock formation that sits a quarter mile off-shore from Grand Case Beach. Grab a pair of fins and a mask to explore the rich underwater life on one of the islands best snorkeling locations, filled with tropical fish and an abundance of colorful coral.

The team will navigate the boat down the west coast of St Martin, past the beautiful red rock cliffs of Bay Rouge and the expansive and extravagant mansions that scatter Terre Basse (Lowlands). Here we will stop for a dip in the turquoise waters of Long Bay and relax on the peaceful secluded white sandy beach. Another great option available is to swim in the gorgeous crystal-clear waters of Mullet Bay Beach, just over the border on the Dutch side.

Towards the end of the tour, your speedboat will drift just off the world famous, Maho Beach. Here you will have an amazing opportunity to see enormous airplanes landing just overhead onto Princess Juliana International Airport.

Your day will conclude with a short speedy cruise back to your same pick-up marina. This itinerary will showcase the best boating locations that St Maarten and St Martin have to offer. The tour duration will be approximately 6 hours.
