Coconut Reef Glass Bottom Kayaks are a fantastic way to explore above and below the water. A great activity for all the family (as we take from age 3 upwards). Also exciting for those who aren't as confident at snorkelling, as it provides an opportunity to see the beautiful reefs and tropical fish that St Maarten has to offer.

It wasn't very difficult to find using Google maps offline and a bit of help from a local. When we got there, our guide Gino was waiting for us and gave a quick tutorial on... More

We rented glass bottomed kayaks for an hour-long self-guided tour of Simpson Bay. The young man at the rental stand was friendly and helpful and we were soon on our way. Despite the (dirty) glass bottoms, there was not much to see in the Bay, but we enjoyed getting out and kayaking under the tropical sun nonetheless. There were 3... More

The brochure promised a paradise of fish viewed in special glass bottom kayaks. First, the glass bottom kayaks are useless-throughout the whole trip there was nothing to see in the patch of water we explored. We paddled past the first special site- big deal- a few iguanas on the rocks...sunning themselves...err, ok. Then off to the promised site of huge... More
