What to expect
  • Find your way to St Maarten's Kim Sha Beach to meet your guide and group. Get a short lesson on safety and paddling technique, then climb in to your 2-person, sit-on-top kayaks and paddle out into Simpson Bay. Watch the shoreline glide by and get an up-close view of the variety of marine vessels moored in Simpson Bay. With favorable weather conditions, you can follow your guide around Pelican Rocks and into the next bay. Move at a relaxed pace, with plenty of rest breaks to view the neighboring islands and birds at rest on the rocks.  Reach your destination, a beach in a protected cove, and get fitted for snorkeling equipment. Listen to a short orientation, then follow your guide out to the coral reef and nearby rocky caverns. During 45 minutes of snorkeling, see tang, needle nose, trumpet fish, angel fish and parrot fish flitting about, as well as other marine creatures your guide points out.  Paddle back to Kim Sha Beach in your kayak, then go ashore and have a drink at the Greenhouse Restaurant. Sit down with your group and discuss the marine life you saw and its importance to St Maarten's ecosystem.  Please note: Single kayaks are reserved for guides or cases where there are an odd number of travelers. Please note: If weather conditions are not favorable for kayaking, you will participate in a beach swim instead.

This proved to be a great experience for our family of five. It was just the right amount of kayaking and snorkeling to have a fun time. Our instructor, Chris, was very personable, knowledgeable and patient. He made it all worthwhile. Liked the drinks afterwards. Would highly recommend for families or novice kayakers/snorklers looking to have a good time without spending a small fortune.

My 3 adult children, 2 SOs and I spent a beautiful morning kayaking and snorkeling. The excursion was well-organized and low-key with our smart, friendly leaders! My daughter Meredith had a broken leg (no cast) and the guys were very attentive to her, helping her in and out of the kayak and offering to carry her gear and lend an arm. So appreciated!! Everyone happy!

Luca and Javi were amazing. We really had a good time. We came with a group from a cruise with all ages. They took their time to explain everything and did it in a very fun way. First we were kayaking to the beach, then wen went snorkeling and after that we all got a free drink from the bar. It was really a good time with those teo and I would definitely do it again.

Luca, Lily, and Casey were awesome! We had a great time kayaking and snorkeling and hanging out at the beautiful locale. It's more of a strenuous excursion than others, but if you're up for it it's totally worth it!

It was my first time kayaking in the ocran and my first time snorkeling ever. The minute we stepped off our cruise ship the staff was friendly. They clearly explained the time line for the day amd were extremely helpful in making sure everyone was comfortable & safe. They were attentive throughout the day and provided us with water for the journey and a beverage at the bar when we returned.
