About
Paddle across the largest saltwater lagoon in the Antilles on a guided kayak expedition. Your tour begins at Kim Sha Beach in Simpson Bay. Upon arrival receive a kayaking lesson and safety orientation before setting off on your sit-on-top kayak. You will follow your guide at a leisurely pace across the largest saltwater lagoon in the Antilles and marvel at the magnificent mega yachts that make St. Maarten their winter base from November to April. During your paddle your guide will point out sights of interest, including the imaginary water border between the Dutch and French sides of the island. A brief stop gives you a chance to rest your muscles as well as learn about the island’s vibrant history and the lagoon’s complex ecosystem before paddling back to Kim Sha for a refreshing dip in the ocean and a well deserved complimentary beverage.

My wife and I really enjoyed the tour. It was great to exercise on the water and to learn about the history of the island. Our tour guides, Casey, Chris and Nicky were awesome. We would highly recommend it!

Fun but NOT leisurely
Feb 2020
Nice beach and good guides, but this is not a "serene" lagoon (as the cruise brochure said), and not the least bit leisurely (as the description states). This is an active port for enormous yachts, windy,and choppy seas. My partner and I paddled like crazy and I panicked a few times that we would go off course. I am experienced at riverkayaking, but was overwhelmed at the effort it took to paddle here.
That said, everyone else seemed to be okay. It was hard to hear the guides talks because we could not get close enough, and it was windy.

Hi Julie, thank you for choosing our tour and sharing your experience. Also thank you for giving kudos to our exceptional guides. Normally our kayak tour is very calm, as you start in a bay and head into an enclosed lagoon. However we do get very windy days from time to time, which makes the kayak part more of an effort. It is too bad you got us on one of those days.

Great guides
Dec 2019 • Couples
We did this with a cruise excursion. Our guides were Chris and KC. We were a small group of adults, mostly couples, 1 person paddling alone. Early on I fell off, and I dislocated my shoulder trying to climb up again. One of the guides, Chris, helped haul me up, and then helped haul our kayak, since I couldn't paddle. We had a great time hearing about the luxury yachts and the role of the mangroves protecting the land and creating an under water environment. We had sea life examples to see and optionally handle. We saw a lot of iguanas and crabs. I had a great time even with the very sore shoulder.

Hi There, Chris told us about your shoulder and how very sorry he was that this happened to you. I'm glad you were still able to enjoy your tour despite your pain. And thank you so much for your lovely review. We will pass it on to Chris with much pleasure

Excellent and interesting adventure
Our guide Chris was friendly, instructive and attentive to all 16 or so kayakers. He explained what we saw including the remaining yachts to be salvaged from Hurricane Erma in the lagoon. It was a fun half day on the water with a little exercise to boot.

Luca and Cassey were excellent guides!!
Nov 2019
We did a double person kayak tour with Luca and Cassey. Before getting into the water, Luca gave a fun, funny and yet informative information session on kayaking in the ocean! Our guides were always making sure we stuck together and didn't get lost along the way. There was a lot of information provided on the ecology and history of the both the ocean and the land. We ended the tour at the Buccaneer Beach Bar, an outdoor bar that was on the beautiful Kimsha Bay Beach. Luca was fun and out going, Cassey was quieter but still knowledgeable and funny. I highly recommend this tour and hope you get these two as your guides!!

Excellent Adventure
First time for the wife and I to Kayak, let’s throw in some mild ocean waves, 15-20knot gusts and the results for us and the other 8 couples was excellent! The three guilds that paddle along with us made sure we were all doing great, breaks were at the right time and with just the right amount of information about the area, history and ecosystem. Perfect length trip, with a refreshing beverage at the end. Afterwards we decided to head to Sunset beach instead of back to the ship, the guide escorted us to the local bus stop, flagged down the bus and made sure he knew where we wanted to depart! Great journey! Thanks.
