We had some first time young snorkelers. Blue bubbles watersports took us to an area close to the dock were we could see some little fish, as well as a sunken plane, boat, cannons and statues. Not a large variety of fish in this location but enough that the new snorkeler could enjoy. The staff are friendly and very personable.

We only had a day and this company was recommended to us by somebody on our cruise ship. The team of Captain Antony, Jeff and Joshua were great - we did the 4hour trip, lots of drinks and water available, you can use their snorkels which seemed pretty good. Joshua guided us to some good snorkel sites we had lunch... More

We visited St Maarten for the day on cruise last week and we had the honor of having our excursion with this company. We were on board with Captian Anthony, Jeff, Raheem, and Rafael. They were all amazing. Let me just out there that I am petrified of the ocean I can't swim at all nor can I float the... More

We loved our time with Damien, Jay, Jeff and John in St. Maarten last week! Our family of five enjoyed everything about our 4 hour snorkeling tour. We felt very safe the whole time and the boat ride was very peaceful and beautiful! We would definitely do this tour again and recommend it to anyone who is looking for a... More

Bobby and Leroy took great care of us. We dove every day with them for a week and there was always something new and interesting to see. They helped arrange a sitter for our son and took care of our gear so we could enjoy the afternoons. Our dives lasted at least 1 hour each and we never felt rushed... More

I would ask to use the newer model ATV's as the ones we used felt un safe. The tour guide was great and the lunch was awesome. It was a fun ride better then sitting in a hot cab. Did miss hearing the history of what was being seen but I would do it again.

Had a blast. Best part of vacation. Not expensive either. Great time and made new friends. The crew made us feel welcomed and we were given a nice history lesson on the area we went snorkeling in. We will go back and do this again.

My fiance and I visited St. Maarten on a cruise in May. We didn't book an excursion with the cruise line because we felt that they were too expensive so we thought we'd try our luck once we docked. We went to the visitor's desk and asked what some good snorkeling and boating options were and they referred us to... More

My girlfriends and I snorkeled with these guys and we had the best time ever. The hospitality makes the whole experience worth the money. Plus, it's pretty affordable. Aj, Jeff, and that rest of the grew made it such a peaceful; yet, fun experience. I plan to come back and bring my family with me, so that they can experience... More

Great fun. We took a catamaran tour. to Divi little bay, stopped near Maho beach to watch planes fly over. We finished at Mullet Bay and were able to Kayak and Paddle board. Loved the friendliness of the staff and crew. Highly recommend them.
