Golden Eagle Catamaran is operated by Out Island Charters. These boats...

Golden Eagle Catamaran is operated by Out Island Charters. These boats include the famous Golden Eagle Catamaran, which is known to be the best ½ Day Cruise on St. Maarten / St. Martin with sailing, snorkeling, and open bar on the way home. Out Island also offers an exciting day of Power Rafting to Anguilla. Our Power Rafts have a shady bit, and visit 3 locations, one which is the most beautiful Sandy Island (Anguilla) you have ever seen. We also offer a 2-story Party Boat Ride and Tour of the Island and the Lagoon of St. Maarten / St. Martin. On it, you will get to know the island well, with our amazing local tour guides. If you have a group, you may want to charter our private boat. I have been told that is creates memories that last a life time. Can you image you and your closest friends and family jamming away at the sounds of waves and music as you make your way to a deserted island to have the most amazing lunch you will ever have? It happened. And Its on this channel. Subscribe for more great memories from your excursion / sail / day trip / tour from St. Martin / St. Maarten!

The boat made 2 stops, first up was snorkeling and then they dropped us off for some swimming at a private beach. The crew on the boat was awesome, the boat was super clean, they served drinks (water, beer, rum... More

This excursion was NOT as described in the cruise line description. We were supposed to be taken to a beach where we could leisurely soak up some sun, snorkel off the beach and enjoy lunch on the way back. The sail was not used on the catamaran, we went to a snorkel site near two floating barges when everyone thought... More

Went on two great tours (Farewell Tour and Eco Tour) around the island. Both crews were great and very knowledgeable. Each time very nice captain and crews. Great time snorkeling and sightseeing on the around the island tours. Highlight of the Eco Tour was seeing the sea turtles at Tintamarre. Definitely recommend.

They took us to a very beautiful snorkeling spot in divi little bay. Snorkel gear was provided. We then sailed along the coast of the island. Seeing st.maarten... More

We booked this tour through Carnival Cruise Line for March 2/17. The tour boat is located in the same harbour as the cruise ship piers. Our tour was for 11:30 AM for 3.5 hours. It was very hot and a long walk from the ship to the dock where the catamaran was tied up. The walking pace was a bit... More

After a rainy day in St Thomas, we were ready for a relaxing day in St Maarten. We picked the right excursion! If you are looking for a snorkeling excursion only, you may be less satisfied as it is a relatively quick snorkel in a crowded area surrounded by a floating bar that you aren't allowed to board. Don't worry... More

Golden Eagle IV made for a beautiful day during a shore excursion during our recent cruise! Crew was awesome and the water was beautiful. The snorkelling was a bit crowded, but the time at the beach was excellent. The captain and crew ensured we had a great time!

Upbeat, friendly crew who's mission is to ensure your experience is fun and safe. The boat is clean and very well maintained. Well worth the money. Snacks and refreshments were tasty.

We went on a shore excursion from our cruise ship and had a great time. We sailed on a catamaran, snorkeled in beautiful water and stopped at a beach. At the beach and sailing back we enjoyed rum punch and had a snack. The staff made us feel comfortable and made sure we had a great time.
