Passaat is a schooner built in 1911 & 100ft long. If it is for a days sail, sunset or dinner cruise, she provides the perfect sailing experience. Join us for a cruise along the St.Maarten coast. We have no music aboard except for the wind in the sails & water against the hull. Relax & enjoy sailing, gourmet Caribbean food & cocktails in great company.

We absolutely love the dinner cruise on the Passaat. The food is fantastic and the coconut cream pie is to die for. Small groups and wonderful company. This is the best dinner cruise we have ever taken and we just keep coming back because of it.

After 7 nights in the Caribbean (three on Saba, three on Statia and one in St. Maarten), we took this sunset cruise to close out our honeymoon and it was really perfect. Not over the top or overly structured, we met some wonderful people, had some tasty snacks and a few drinks to watch the sun set on our trip.... More

We went on a sunset cruise and it was amazing. Missed our first reservation due to traffic and Mariam was so kind to book us on another night. We have been in St. Maarten for 2 1/2 weeks and this is the best evening we have had. Quiet night with 14 people and 4 crew members. Lots of laughs and... More

Thank you to Pieter and Mirian for having taken such good care of us. It was a beautiful evening and nice to chill aboard the Passaat 1911 schooner boat. We were 10 guests in total and had ample space to chat while enjoying a very mellow cruise.

Thoroughly enjoyed this sunset sail aboard this vintage 1911 schooner. One must get onto the water in St. Maarten to experience this island fully. The two Captains were gracious friendly and professional. Safety was a high concern. The snacks were yummy - simple yet delicious. We were chased by some rain squalls - which eventually caught up to us -... More

First of all, this is not a party boat. So don't expect music and disco lights as on the Tango from aquamania adventures.... this is a completely different experience, and one you should really try! My husband, my mom, our 2 children ages 3 and 5 and I all enjoyed this experience. It's quite an adventure, keep that in mind... More

Our 6th time on the Passaat and the "voyage" never fails to amaze my wife and I. We take the sunset cruise each time. Drinks and finger foods are good, but under sail with no noise and looking at the land and going by anchored yachts and the sunset is why we go time and again. It is soooooo peaceful!... More

Have just returned from the beautiful island of SXM and had a wonderful evening in the company of nice people and we were looked after so well despite Peters injured arm by he and his lovely wife Miriam. As the title says although God didn't grant us with the best sunset the evening cruise on the Passat schooner was beautiful... More

My husband and I enjoyed a peaceful sunset sail on a schooner. Being under sail, instead of power, we were able to enjoy the company and conversation of the other guests. Pieter and Mirian provided an excellent meal. Appetizers and drinks were served during the evening. They were very gracious hosts, making sure everyone had a pleasurable experience. We highly...
