A comfortable high-speed vessel gives us the choice of Little Bay, Shipwreck Cove or Pelican Point for the best snorkel of the day. There is no traffic, just cool breezes as you whisk across Simpson Bay Lagoon with great photo opportunities, as well as exploring and shopping time at Marina Royale in Marigot. Then it's time to cool off, find a calm beach with crystal-clear waters and crisp white sand for an hour of sunbathing and relaxing before returning to your ship.
Note: Participants must be at least 8 years of age. Maximum weight is 250 lbs. Snorkel equipment is included. Snorkel site and beach location chosen is based on the weather conditions of the day to assure best experience. Wear your swimsuit and bring a towel.

Review 1 for Power Rafting, Snorkel & Beach
Date:April 17, 2012
wish i could rate this 2.5 stars
Pros: tour guides were great, the views and 20-30mph boat ride was nice. The beach was beautiful and the shops/restaurants were nice.
Cons: Snorkeling experience was terrible. Didn't see any fish. Tour guide did warn us that it was a bad day for snorkeling. But even worse, the excursion representative back on the Epic ship told us after the fact, that St Maarten is not a good place to snorkel in general and that we should snorkel in the Bahamas. Wish I would have known that to begin with, and it makes you wonder why they have snorkeling trips anyway. A quick side note, i booked another snorkeling trip in the Bahamas and it was GREAT!!!! We only got to spend 30 minutes in town at the shops/restaurants and when we got back in the boat to go to the beach, we only got to spend 30 minutes there as well. We actually spent more time riding around in the boat, than at any of the stops. For me personally it just wasn't enough time at each stop to really enjoy, especially if you planned on doing any shopping. If you like short stays, than you will enjoy this trip more than I did. We also had to swim 50 feet to the beach from the boat and therefore couldn't bring a towel. So if you can't swim don't go on this excursion thinking you will get some beach time.
