St. Martin--to shop or to snorkel? It's a tough call, but this half-day snorkel allows you both opportunities. First, you'll explore the underwater world of Creole Rock and then it's off to window shop in those fancy French boutiques!

Hop aboard our 28-foot motor boat for a coastal cruise of St. Martin (or rather St. Maarten, since you are on the Dutch side) past Simpson Bay Lagoon, Marigot Harbor, Friar's Bay, Happy Bay, and Grand Case as we make our way to Creole Rock. This large rock formation with a reef extending out towards the mainland is about a mile offshore. Waters are shallow and calm and provide excellent snorkeling. Here, you'll see the world beneath the turquoise blue surface, where there's an abundance of reef fish and small marine life.

Even if you're a novice or non-snorkeler, floatation belts and float boards are available for your enjoyment.

After you've worked up an appetite, we'll serve refreshments, including beer, soda, bread, and cheese, as you enjoy the great views on our way back to shore.
