Snorkel Trips / Excursions
St Maarten/St Martin and Surrounding Islands

St Maarten / St Martin and the surrounding islands offer nice snorkel opportunities.

Our FREE St Maarten / St Martin Snorkel Guide, available in our store, makes it very easy to find the best spots on St Maarten / St Martin and go out and snorkel by yourself, just by stepping into the water from the shore.

However; some of the suggested spots in our guide, and of course those on surrounding islands, can only be reached by some sort of water craft. Whether it is a short paddle from shore in a rented kayak or a full day excursion around St Maarten/ St Martin, there are trips for every budget and mood.

Check out our suggestions below and contact us if you would like to Book a St Maarten / St Martin Snorkel Trip / Excursion or a trip to one of our surrounding uninhabited islands like Tintamarre, Pinel or Creole Rock, or to neighbouring Prickly Pear Cays off Anguilla.

BONUS: Book a trip with us and get a store discount!
