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.

With 2 locations on island The Scuba Shop has got you covered for convenient rental gear pick-up. In Oyster Pond we are located on Captain Oliver's Marina, right next door to Sunsail and The Moorings. Our Simpson Bay location is at La Palapa Marina on the Airport Boulevard, just minutes by dinghy or car to Port de Plaisance Marina, Isle de Sol Marina and Simpson Bay Marina. For those sailing from Marigot, we are located on the road from the airport (Simpson Bay direction) for convenient pick-up just after your flight arrival, and about 15 minutes away from Marigot if you come with your charter yacht dinghy.

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 in the Leeward Islands, the only thing you have to take into account is not to fish within the Marine Parks of the islands or in Anguillan territorial waters.  

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.
