St. Martin Snorkeling Excursion Reviews
Not a good island for snorkeling. Apparently there is only one "good" spot, because all the tours stopped there, and it got crowded. A 100 yard swim to the "good" spot, and nothing to see where we got there. I managed to hitch a tow back to the boat and saved a long swim for a 70yo.
The beach break was just OK.
Tiki Hut Platform Snorkel takes place on a floating platform as the name implies. When snorkeling, there is a sunken helicopter, sailboat and some cannons from a local fort to view along with the local fish, corals etc. We had a great time – even my non snorkeling wife enjoyed it - but be aware that the platform moves up and down with the water surface so you may want to take some Dramamine or Meclizine to ward off any sea sickness that may occur due to the motion.
St. Martin was the high light of our trip! We booked the full day boat tour and snorkel with Capt. Bob. It was a quick walk from the port to the dock and there were 16 of us on the speed boat. What a blast! The boat itself was the best part, the tour and snorkeling were great as well but for me I could have just rode around on that boat all day long. Bob is a great guide, funny yet informative and the island is absolutely lovely. We had lunch on the beach in Grand Cass and it was very tasty, Bob has tons of cold beers and drinks on the boat as well. We got to see a big jet land over us in the boat at Maho airport too. Great day and I would do it again!
Great crew, Great open bar, Great BBQ, Snorkeling was ok but there was no reef just construction debris.
