We enjoyed our 5-hour boat tour of St. Maarten very much. Unfortunately weather conditions made it impossible to snorkel with the turtles, which was the main reason I booked the tour. We did snorkel in one spot but the variety and number of fish were disappointing. We also did not go to the private beach they usually go to. The... More

" We can't control the conditions on the ocean and we have a responsibility to... More

We loved snorkeling and swimming with the turtles and the overall experience was wonderful! We will definitely be back, sooner rather than later! Capt. Brett and Laura were... More

we enjoyed our day on this boat tour. Jonathan was very accommodating to everyone on board and really worked hard! The lunch was very good-its at a restaurant, so it wasn't as though you were being fed on paper plates like most tours! Out of our group of 4, two are snorkelers, 2 are not, but that was not an...

One of the best we've been on. Capt. Bob and his crew are fun but professional. We felt very safe and had an awesome time. Jurrie was our Capt and he did a great job telling us about the island, the marine life and the people of the island. The giant turtles and iguana's were amazing. 5 stars!!

I wrote last year glowingly about Capt Bob's tour. In February we again visited the Island and there was no doubt that when we arrived we were going to spend another day with Capt Bob and his excellent team, specifically Boat Capt Sam, who might I add does a terrific job making sure your day is great. Even though we... More

I have snorkeled in many locations through out the Caribbean and this trip was hands down the BEST I've ever experienced. Our tour took us completely around the island of St. Maarten. Our guide, Brett stopped and shared information about various points along the way and other islands visible in the distance. The snorkeling (in several locations during the day)... More
