Our family of eight visited Pinel Island by kayaks and enjoyed a wonderful GF lunch prepared by Fanny.

We cannot say enough great things about our awesome day with Caribbean Paddling! We visited St. Maarten on March 17th on the Carnival Fascination, so we had a short time to experience the beautiful island. Theresa, the shuttle driver, was extremely friendly and welcoming! After about a half hour drive to the other side of the island, we met Ozzy and he got us set up with two tandem kayaks and one single kayak for our group of 5. He gave us a ton of information about where to go and what to see. The water the entire way to Pinel Island was crystal clear and very calm- while we do have kayaking experience, it would not have been necessary for this trip. We briefly stopped at Little Key, the best snorkeling spot recommended by Ozzy, but we are not big snorkelers, so we didn’t stay here long. When we first made it to Pinel Island (about 20 minutes from mainland), we were the ONLY people on the island! We rented 2 chairs and a shared umbrella from Karibuni for somewhere around $20 US. The water was amazing- shallow for a significant distance from shore and a very sandy bottom! There are large (but harmless) Iguanas on the island which were very fun to see! As the day progressed, various tour boats stopped for brief visits and some others came (possibly on the water taxi?), but never felt like it got crowded. We had lunch at Karibuni, and we didn’t have the greatest experience. If we visit again, we will likely try Yellow Beach Bar instead. On the kayak trip back, some of us saw a large sea turtle- so be on the look out! We had an amazing day on Pinel Island with Caribbean Paddling- it was one of our favorite days of the entire cruise! We will definitely return if we are on St. Maarten again and give Caribbean Paddling our highest recommendation!
