It was so much fun! I have no experience diving so I was nervous. Kelly and Michele are both certified and VERY experience, and VERY NICE! Kelly guided the underwater tour, pointed out some very cool looking fish and a bunch of other fun stuff that I don’t want to give away (cough* airplane*). This is definitely a must if you’re in St. Maarten.

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!!

The day has flown by. Sam, our captain, was able to tell a lot about the island and the surrounding area. Put together the day in consultation, seen a lot!

Great day with Sam! We were 7 with 2 children and everything was perfect. We will remember it.
