The snorkeling with turtles on the Black Beards Revenge was fantastic. Snorkeling with turtles was on my wife's bucket list. Got that one marked off!! Great crew! Jim, Val and Kip do a great job. Val is very knowledgeable about the island and the wildlife. Be careful of the after-swim Pain Killers :-). The boat was well maintained. The equipment provided looked good also. We didn't use it as we had our own. The crew did provide a rinse for our equipment after the snorkel (soap and fresh water). We took this tour at 8:30. We were able to walk around the town or tour the ship afterwards. We did the ship and a nap :-)
This was our second time to St. Martin, so we opted to do a self-tour on a motorcycle. We had contacted the Harley dealer (Superbikes) before the trip, and made arrangements to have a bike waiting for us when we arrived. The bike was a 2013 Heritage Classic. Clean and new; only 93 kilometers on the bike. We rode counter clockwise around the island. Went to the top of the island (interesting and semi-rough road) Keep an eye out for the goats :-O. Stopped at Orient Beach for a few minutes and saw way too much, if you know what I mean. Also stopped for an hour or so at Sunset Beach to cool off and recharge. Watch out if the tide is in. The waves will bounce you up to and over big rocks. I thought this was a great value for the time we had the bike, and the condition of the bike.
