Captain Anthony and First Mate Jeff took myself, my husband and our friend out on a private 4 hour boating adventure around the Dutch Bays. We cruised around jumped in the water, swam, paddle boarded, kayaked, and had some fabulous grilled chicken for lunch. We learned about the island and heard some amazing stories. What a great day out on... More

We found these the after we arrived in St. Martin on our cruise. We did a 4 hour snorkel tour with Rafeal and Jeff. The snorkelling was awesome with lots of fish and a couple of sting rays. After the first spot we went to the lagoon by Maho beach and watched planes landing and taking off. Then on to... More

Part of our excursion included the transportation to/from Blue Bubbles because their pier was on another part of the island. We did have to locate where to meet the transportation but we found it after asking a couple of the locals. We made it to... More

Julio was a great tour guide. He brought us to a lot of the popular spots. It was a fun way to see the island.

I am a beginner and the staff helped get me oriented from the start? Rather than wear the ankhs I was hooked to a tank on a raft via a long hose. They taught me the basics so I could go down to 20 feet with confidence. The dive sites were very interesting. I highly recommend Blue Bubbles.

I would definitely recommend checking them out! Both my husband and I are fairly new to diving and Richard was extremely helpful and accommodating. We will definitely go see him when we are back in SXM in June!
