Dive / Sail Vacations

Sailing Photo

For those of you who love to sail, St. Maarten / St. Martin is the ideal destination for a Diving / Sailing vacation. There are some really great dive sites with safe and easy access with your charter dinghy, right from the best anchorages.

With your own gear onboard, you can use our Dive Guide and “Dive where you want, when you want….” We offer great Scuba Rental Rates on complete scuba sets or individual pieces, all in excellent condition. Prefer to purchase your own gear? Check out the great prices in our retail store or ask about our 2nd hand gear program.

The Scuba Shop is located in Simpson Bay, just 5 minutes from Princess Juliana Airport making pick-up and drop-off on your way from and back to the airport convenient. (Please email us with your rental needs and flight arrival time so that we can co-ordinate and have everything ready for you). For those sailing from a marina in Simpson Bay or Marigot, we have a dock in the Simpson Bay lagoon right at the back of the shop for convenient water pick-up and drop-off.

Fishing from your Charter Yacht

Sailing around the Leeward Islands offers a great opportunity to catch your own meal by trolling. Game fish like Tuna, Mahi Mahi (also known as Dorado and Dolphin Fish) and Wahoo swim around in the deeper waters surrounding St Maarten/ St Martin and serve for an excellent meal on board. No fishing permit is necessary around St Maarten / St Martin, in St Barths you can get your permit from the Port Captain in Gustavia, no fishing for non-residents in Anguillan waters and be sure not to fish within the Marine Parks of the islands or in Anguillan territorial waters. This leaves plenty of deep water while sailing between the islands.

At The Scuba Shop you can Rent trolling rods with either Small or Big reels. Reservations are necessary so that we can make sure a rod will be ready for you.

No boat? No problem!

St. Maarten / St. Martin is home to all of the major yacht charter companies which do both crewed and bareboat charters. St. Maarten / St. Martin is also the home base for many Mega-Yachts.
