St. Maarten America's Cup Regatta Excursion Reviews

Compete in a race around a shortened version of America's Cup course in this once in a lifetime adventure. The best part? No experience needed!
Most amazing experience, according to my husband.
Most amazing experience, according to my husband. They actually work on the boat, and help sail the vessel. He said a bit tiring, but exciting at the same time. Would do it again!

I’ve done this before and believe it is the best excursion I’ve been on. The crew are very friendly and make sure that everyone has a great experience even if they have never sailed before.

This was our second time with the Regatta. So much fun! If you've done it before be sure to wear your tee shirt. They will give you a new one...and you don't have to return the old one.

We rarely book through the cruise line, but I had gift cards to use and this was the only way to to the Americas cup. Excellent excursion! Make sure you are mobile. You work all the parts of the sailboat. We had nice winds, six foot swells, and only eight people on board. Great time! Read Less

Loved the feel of being on a real racing yacht. captain and crew were great. It is short enough to also allow some shopping in town afterwards and still get back to the ship in plenty of time.

This was fun. It would have been even better if the wind had been stronger. I think they had too many people on each of the boats. These boats typically carry a crew of 11. We had 18 - 20 people on these boats. We were packed on there ... Read More

Not to be missed. The pro's: beautiful water and boats, exhilarating sailing experience. HOWEVER: be careful what you volunteer to do. The fittest and strongest end up on the "grinders" doing a lot of hard work while facing the cockpit floor, not seeing much blue water. This is a RACE and the captain takes it very seriously: more than one person on my boat got barked at for not moving fast enough or making a mistake. If you go sober and prepared to work, you will have the experience of a lifetime. Read Less

This was very fast paced and a little scary. If we do it again, we will definitely want to wear life jackets! Even an inactive participant needs to work hard to stay in the boat.

Awesome excursion.
Awesome excursion. I had never actually been on a sailboat before (other than a little hobey cat). The position I worked was pretty physical but very fun. Unfortunately our boat came in last :( but the crew kept it fun.

It was good but not great. I would say it would be something to do once but I wouldn't choose to do it again. Not to say that I didn't enjoy it though. I learned a lot about sailing and had fun, but was a bit pricey.

The port area is very clean and nice. The America's Cup excursion is wicked, especially if you are a sailer. You could see at least 50 feet down in the clear blue water. So much fun.
