What people are saying about Philipsburg

Fabulous day out on the catamaran, we visited 2 beautiful beaches and had plenty of time to swim and snorkel. Lunch was very good and drinks were flowing all day. The crew: Preston, Albert, Benjamin and Atiba made this adventure memorable. Highly recommended.

Sam, our captain, was awesome. He knew the best places to snorkel, swim and eat. We were able to swim with sea turtles! He even took photos for us. He also took us to watch the planes take off. Very cool.

We had such a great time! Our guide Sam was wonderful. The boat ride was a blast and he took us to beautiful spots all around St. Maarten. If you’re headed to St Maarten, you should book this tour!!
