Sand Dollar Half Day Snorkel Trip

Select Date and Travellers
US$ 45.00

    What to Expect
    Make your way to Simpson Bay and board the Sand Dollar with Captain Junior at the helm. Be sure to bring along a towel and swim suit, as well as sunscreen and a hat to protect you from the hot St Maarten sun while snorkeling. Sand Dollar is a custom built 28 foot power boat with a canopy for shade.
    Trips start with the boat gliding into the lagoon. Find a space on the deck and relax, grab a cold soda, a beer or some French cheese on a crusty baguette while viewing the picturesque coastline as you sail out towards Creole Rock, about a mile offshore.
    Creole Rock is an unusual rock formation with a reef extending out towards the shore, whose calm, shallow waters make for excellent snorkeling and diving. When Captain Junior moors the boat, slip on your provided snorkel, fins and mask and jump in. Feel free to ask the captain and crew any questions about the surrounding environment or get a few pointers on snorkeling. 
    View the surrounding rock formations as tropical reef fish dart in and out of their hiding places. Be on the lookout for barracuda, pufferfish and the rare frogfish. 
    Non-swimmers are always welcome to take the scenic boat ride with beautiful views of neighboring Anguilla. Divers are also welcome to join this excursion, but must indicate in advance. 
    After approximately 3 hours, Captain Junior will return you safely to shore at Simpson Bay.

    We took this trip with our 2 kids aged 10 and 12 and we all loved it. Our captain JT was helpful and attentive and answered all of our questions. Just enough time to not be to much and lose interest. Highly recommended.More

    Our captain, Junior, was what made the trip most enjoyable. We spent half of our time snorkeling and the other half at a beach.
