Exiting the lagoon out of the French side into the open Caribbean Sea, we will head to our first stop, 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 marine life in their natural habitat. Your captain will then 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 watch people feed the big school of iguanas on the island.

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 provided on board 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 stop is at the gorgeous crystal-clear waters of Mullet Bay Beach, just over the border on the Dutch side.

Towards the end of the excursion, your speedboat will drift just off the world famous, Maho Beach. Here you will have an amazing opportunity to see large 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.
