ShoreTrips says...

This boat is perfect for large families, groups of friends, or anyone that just wants to look good on the water! Though this is a fast and flying sightseeing adventure, both above and below the surface, it is private and you may slow the motion down if you wish. Just tell the captain!

Boarding your Boston Whaler powerboat for the day is just the beginning.

It has twin Mercury engines to get you across the water in fast and furious action! But you will be handled with care as you glide across the water's surface. Literally, that is what you will do on this private charter. Here on St. Martin, along with stellar service, you will start out slow on your vessel while listening to a little of the island's history before you take off on your hair-raising ride.

A short while later, you'll have a chance to disembark your boat in Marigot, the center of all things French on St. Martin. Walk around a little, buy a souvenir, and then reboard your boat while everyone drools with envy.

After a brief ride, we'll arrive at a lovely spot to snorkel and, with gear and instruction provided, you'll have ample time to explore the marine life--blue tang, sergeant majors, trumpet, parrot, and ballyhoo, just to name a few. After close to an hour of snorkel time, we'll bring you aboard for a beach stop. You'll have the opportunity to purchase lunch, swim, or just enjoy some quiet time.

Lunch is served at a favorite island restaurant.

The distance from the beach back to Philipsburg varies due to weather and currents. If conditions allow, we'll take the pictureque coastline back to the dock. If the weather proves too windy, we'll shortcut through the lagoon, where you can enjoy an extra swim stop, if you wish. Either way, you'll win with this adventure.
