I highly recommend this tour. Eight of us rented 2 jeeps with Bobby as our tour guide. He was fantastic! Went all over the island-French & Dutch. He had a great attitude and allowed us to plan our own schedule. Thanks Bobby!!!

Had a great time exploring the Island with Bobby as our guide! He was patient and allowed us to enjoy the tour at our own pace.

I went on the 4-hour airport trip with Blue Bubbles with my boyfriend. We enjoyed it a lot! Blue Bubbles has a very comfortable boat to take you on the snorkel trip. We first stopped at Little Bay where there are millions of fish! The crew took some bread with them to feed the fish and they all come straight... More

Arranged the 4 hr snorkeling trip from the tours desk at the cruise port. $3 per person ride took us to their downtown office. Trip departed from the pier close to it. Capt Rafael, Jeff and Kino were a lot of fun and run a safe operation. They were especially good with the new snorkelers in our group and the... More

We arrived early registering with Sky who processed us giving tips of all of the best shopping near their dive shop while we waited. On board, she made all the guests feel comfortable. During the snorkeling trip, she always kept a boogie board ready to help. Another swimmer was having trouble being comfortable in the water, so she calmly approached... More

Captain Anthony and First Mate Jeff took myself, my husband and our friend out on a private 4 hour boating adventure around the Dutch Bays. We cruised around jumped in the water, swam, paddle boarded, kayaked, and had some fabulous grilled chicken for lunch. We learned about the island and heard some amazing stories. What a great day out on... More

The staff was very helpful for our son's first dive. Great fun for the price. Highly recommended. Would book a longer trip next time around.

We found these the after we arrived in St. Martin on our cruise. We did a 4 hour snorkel tour with Rafeal and Jeff. The snorkelling was awesome with lots of fish and a couple of sting rays. After the first spot we went to the lagoon by Maho beach and watched planes landing and taking off. Then on to... More

Our group of 15 people made a reservation with Blue Bubbles for a snorkel trip. Part of our excursion included the transportation to/from Blue Bubbles because their pier was on another part of the island. We did have to locate where to meet the transportation but we found it after asking a couple of the locals. We made it to... More
