What to expect
Our St Maarten Coastal Explorer tour offers a custom, private charter boat to explore St Maarten by Sea. We visit several of the popular and lesser known protected snorkeling spots right off the coast. We finish the afternoon off with a relaxing stop on a beautiful sandy beach and then take a quick stop by Maho Airport to view the incoming and outgoing flights that pass right by overhead. (Please note, actual itinerary may vary due to weather and sea conditions on any given day.) This is a guided tour. At each snorkeling stop, an experienced crew member will be in the water with you to ensure your safety and comfort. While on-board, enjoy our open bar with soft drinks, water, local beers, mixed drinks and snacks. We offer a basic picnic lunch option or we can arrange to stop at one of several beachside restaurants. Our boat, Blu Bi U is a 38 foot power cat with a private bathroom, wide open deck space and comfortable seating. We have beach toys aboard and clean, well maintained, snorkel gear. In compliance with international maritime laws, we take a maximum of 12 passengers, although our boat can comfortably seat up to 16 people.

Tour boat Captain "Trevor" and first mate " Robert" have the God given "gift" for operating this tour. Tour of the yachts, snorkeling, swimming in beach waves and then watching the planes land. All Good. We needed this fast boat to see everything. It is a hard task to have constant boat safety & a fun filled experience. but these guys are pro's

Malik and Don were awesome! We didn’t see as much underwater life as we wanted, but we were so happy with the tour. The boat ride was smooth, we saw the whole island and got the most beautiful photos. Lunch and the rum punch provided were super good too! So happy we took the tour early in our trip because Malik and Don had so much info and recommendations to share that made the rest of our stay even better!

Great time!
Jun 2019
The Snorkeling and Discovery tour around St. Maarten was great fun. It started out in Simpson Bay and we toured the island stopping off at various spots along the way to snorkel or just swim. The crew was very informative pointing out historical sites, beaches and geological formations as well as homes of the rich and famous. We stopped in Marigot on the French side of the island for lunch. The crew had arranged for us to eat at Lolo's for some of the best barbecue I have ever had. Even if you do not go on the snorkeling tour do yourself a favor and go to Lolo's. The tour is great for families!

These guys were on point. Took us to several bays and beaches- even with bad weather were able to find us some great snorkeling. Constantly served us drinks, food, and felt all 4 kids on the boat were safe at all times in their hands.
Small group setting made us feel like VIPs. All 6 of the people in our party agreed we'd do this excursion again in a heartbeat.
Great value.

Small boat, intimate overview of island with a fun crew!
Jul 2019
What I liked most about this excursion was that the crew were flexible with our time and that there were only 6 paying passengers on the boat! We wanted to take a dip at Mullet Bay, sure! Can we stay and watch planes fly over Maho Bay, sure!

We motored over to two islands and saw/swam/snorkeled near several beaches and had a great day - BRING LOTS OF SUNSCREEN!!

Snorkeling at Creole Rock - purportedly the best on the island was okay - not anyone's fault it was rough out there or that we've snorkeled in better places.

Pinel Island - great to see wild Iguanas and to hang out in the shallow waters.

Tintamarre Island - my favorite because we did see a few sea turtles and the beach was beautiful/deserted.

I would highly recommend taking this tour when you first get to the island because the crew (Damien and Mack) give good narratives/stories/hurricane updates about the beaches and houses we saw as well as good suggestions for restaurants.

Dear kthomasva, We couldn't agree more! We traverse nearly 3/4 of the island on our Snorkel and Discovery Tour and you'll see lots of interesting places along the way to visit at your own leisure on this trip or the next. Our crew have a wealth of knowledge of local attractions, hikes, restaurants, bars and such to share. The earlier you do the trip the more options you'll have for the rest of your vacation (or of course the next time you return to SXM). We do our very best to utilize your time with us as best we can without rushing you or blasting sirens or horns at you to get back on the boat. We want you to enjoy your day without feeling like cattle. Agreed, Creole Rock pales in comparison to many other places around the globe, indeed there are some better places even on St Maarten. However, it is one of the best on the island that we can access on a year round basis where snorkelers of all skill levels can be catered to, even in rough weather. There is a rich variety of wildlife here, and even though I visit the rock several times a week, I am continually surprised with new experiences on a regular basis. Just a few days ago I discovered a new junenile eel of a species I have not seen before around St Maarten. Their are always lots of fish but every now and again a new surprise shows up. If you didn't get to see the full beauty of what Creole Rock has to offer then we need to work on improving our skills as professional guides. Thank you for pointing that out. Sunscreen - another important point. Please, please, we encourage all future guests to bring Reef friendly sunscreen. Bring as much as you need but don't forget, a good, long sleeve rashie top can eliminate as much as 50% of your sunscreen usage. Anytime we can avoid putting any chemicals in the waters at all, the better. Thank you for choosing Coconut Reef. Your feedback is greatly appreciated and invaluable to allow us to improve our service. Most importantly, we're very glad that you enjoyed your time with us. Happy Travels, The crew and management at Coconut Reef

Perfect Day Trip
Jun 2019 • Friends
My friends and I had a great time on this tour. Captain Damien and 1st Mate Mac showed great hospitality, gave a great tour, were funny and knowledgable and all around perfect hosts. The tour it self was perfect, lively but also relaxing. The snacks and drinks were good too. Sheryl was very responsive via email when booking and making arrangements too. This tour is a great way to see how beautiful St Martin is! Don't even bother with any others, just book this one.

We had a great day out snorkeling with Don and Malik. It was a very small group, so we were able to spend extra time in the water. They took extra care to make sure we were all having a great time and got to see what we wanted. Both guys were knowledgeable and full of stories about St. Maarten and the surrounding islands.
