In St. Maarten we did the Capt. Bob snorkeling tour that we booked ourselves. We had 5 stops. Stop 1 snorkel for sea turtles, stop 2 a quick stop at some shops and beach, stop 3 lunch (food was delicious choice of fish, ribs or chicken)and beach, stop 4 fish snorkel, stop 5 watch planes.
St. Thomas we had a lot of sun from the day before so not interested in visiting beaches. We took the open air taxi for $4 each to downtown. We found the 99 steps and walked up to Blackbeard’s. Did the Blackbeard tour ($10 each). We climbed the tour and got to tour a couple of plantation homes and walked back down the steps. We stopped to eat at Cuzzin’s for lunch (great food I would recommend). We tried buttered conch (our 1st time for Conch), stuffed lobster, chicken curry, and cheeseburger. We did some shopping before we headed back to the ship via open air taxi for another $4 each. Back on the ship by 1:30.
