We loved the catamaran.
Sail Date: June 2019
We loved the catamaran. Highlight of the trip, but you don't get to see anything else...you are there just long enough to do the catamaran, and then have to get back to the ship.

Wish the weather would have been better, but snorkeling was fantastic. Submerged helicopter and cannon and of course fish. The beach was secluded and beautiful. Very surprised at the very small crowd considering it was booked thru RC and # of ships in port that day. The rum punch flowed and we had a great time. Read Less

Love the catamaran tour.
Sail Date: March 2019
Love the catamaran tour. Great crew. Always helpful. Like it to be longer, so we can spend more time at the beach. Snorkeling was very crowded, because all the boats go there at the same time

Three Islands by powerboat with Lunch The island is still recovering from the hurricane. Excursion went through Cole Bay where you saw the extensive damage from hurricane Irma. Boats still submerged in the water. Homes boarded up, piles of wreckage everywhere. Very heartbreaking. For me brought back bad memories of having to rebuild with Super Storm Sandy. Otherwise the day and tour was very good. The reef is starting to come back at Creol Rock. You can see little stag head coral growing. Fish were around and a 4 foot barracuda. Next onto Tintamarre Island. You will need to swim to island. Otherwise you could snorkel around the boat. Those who choose to stay on the boat saw some turtles. It is a sandy bottom, not many fish. Onto Pinel Island. Saw wild horses up on the ridge. Water and beach is nice. Next stop the restaurant for lunch. We sat outside, on the beach, picnic tables with shade. Lunch was good. On the way back to the ship we stopped on the water and had a few planes fly overhead and watched them land on the runway. Very pleasant day. Read Less

Not great.
Sail Date: February 2019
Not great. They stuffed 93 guests on the catamaran and the snorkeling place was packed. The beach time was great but, the crew was rather irresponsible... tossing cans of beer to guests in the water :(

I can not say enough good things about Random wind charters. The tour for the day, 10-3 ran about $120pp. This included all you could drink, lunch and snacks and two excellent tour guides.

We overall enjoyed the catermarn shore excurision we did here. However, it did not start out great. Workers lined everyone up to get on the trip and it took them a long time to collect tickets, sign the waver, put bands on everyone and give a ticket to each person. This took a total of 45 minutes! This could have been done before hand and it started this trip on a bad note. However, after getting on the boat, we thought it would be packed, but it didn’t feel bad. Adam and I went snorkeling and were able to see a helicopter and fish as the guide coaxed fish out with food. We then went for a tour around and ended up on a nice beach. We saw lots of giant boats and we saw the planes landing. There was lots of drinks on this trip, but there was an issue with food. They were supposed to be feeding everyone sandwich lunches, but it turned out to be one very small sandwich each. This caused some problems given how much everyone on the boat was drinking. We also were able to get to the shopping area off of the boat. We had been to this area before, and we noted that this area is very much under construction and is not at the same level it was when we were last there before the hurricane Read Less

I booked this tour because it promised snorkeling. We snorkled in a very deep area where there was no reef, but there was a wreck of some kind, so there were a lot of sargent majors and some other small fish. It was good to be back in the water, but it was too brief. The main point of the tour was drinking. It was an open bar and most of the people who were on there were there to catch a buzz. As non-drinkers, it wasn't nearly as much fun as other people seemed to have. They then went to a beach where people could get off and sit on the sand. No chairs. We stayed on the boat. The crew was very nice, and there was water and soft drinks, and sandwiches. The rum punch and beer flowed well, and at the end of the cruise, the crew served champagne. Everyone who drank seemed to have a wonderful time. It was really pretty out on the water. We did have a sail that they put up, but we ran on engine power even when the sail was up. Read Less

Golden Eagle Catamaran was excellent--friendly and professional staff, clean and well-kept boat, good variety of alcoholic and n/a drinks, and a nice family feeling to the day. Snorkeling reef wasn't all that scenic, but equipment was in good shape and it was a nice amount of time there. "Beach break" likewise was nice and not too long/short a time. The crew really put their hearts into showing us a good--and safe--time. Read Less

This was a great time. We toured the bay in the catamaran. We knew that there was not going to be much to do given the hurricane damage but we were happy to see that things are getting back.

The goal of the tour was to go to Maho beach to see the airplanes take off and land. It was an experience, and even though we had seen it on Youtube - it was something special to see it for real.
