Tall Ship Experience – wind powered sailing adventure through the waters of St. Maarten including plane spotting near Maho Beach. Feel the wind in your hair and the zest in your spirit as the crew raises the sails of the tall ship, Mercedes. If you...more
Have been on many cruise ship shore excursions. Have to rank this on at or near the top. Our trip wasn't on the ship pictured, rather on a schooner. The crew was personable, informative, and just plain nice. Passengers can just relax or help crew...More
The sailing ship was a good size for the group of 40-50 people and it was really clean. The crew was very friendly and it was a family-oriented trip. They were also very accommodating to their visitors, they provided plenty of refreshments throughout the trip,...More
This was the best outing of our whole cruise. There was something so real and vital about the crew. It was an opportunity to see how a sailing ship worked, watch the crew putting up sails and winding them in again, tying up ropes, reacting...More

For me, as long as the ship is moving, motion sickness is not a problem - only when it stops at sea which it doesn't. This might be counter intuitive but I had no problem. As it is a great trip, just take some sea-sickness... More
For me, as long as the ship is moving, motion sickness is not a problem - only when it stops at sea which it doesn't. This might be counter intuitive but I had no problem. As it is a great trip, just take some sea-sickness pills beforehand and just enjoy the experience. When I was there all the passengers were fine.
