Booked the morning 4 hour catamaran sail and snorkel. Very brief sail to Little Bay from cruise port for snorkeling. Not only our catamaran but 3 others in the same tiny area neat the Tiki Hut. Extremely crowded with people simply swimming on top of one another. If I got kicked once--I got kicked 100 times by inexperienced snorkelers who... More

Booked this through Celebrity Cruises. The day was windy which prevented our beach stop due to choppy seas but not the snorkel (Celebrity did refund a portion of our ticket price, without asking, for the inconvenience). Crew was friendly and one even got in the water to gather some sea creatures for the snorkelers to experience. Since no beach time... More

Party of 6 with ages ranging from 4-72 went as an excursion from our cruise. It was excellent. The crew and staff were friendly and funny! Fed us, gave us drinks, and showed us a great time. If I had to pick one negative, it would be that in the snorkeling area there were too many swimmers at once. Otherwise,... More

We booked this excursion directly through Island Marketing instead of through the NCL Gem. We were escorted to the Mirabella, took off our shoes and sailed off to our first stop for snorkeling. Mate, Leroy, got everyone that wanted to snorkel equipment and safely vests. There were noodles available and we walked down the stairs into the water. We stopped... More

My husband and I spent my birthday a few weeks back sailing on the Mirabella. The crew were exceptional. The day was perfect. The snorkeling was good - although a bit crowded with the other tours in the area. The lunch and snacks a nice touch. My husband liked the rum punch. I loved the "chocolate rum" whose name we...

Great crew, great drinks and snacks . Beautiful day on the catamaran. Floating from the boat or beaching it were both fun that day.

The crew of the Mirabella gave good safety instructions for those snorkeling on how to use the equipment and where to find the underwater treasures. The island music that came through the speakers on the boat gave the trip a relaxed feeling. Just a short boat ride away from our cruise ship and we were in a cove in about... More

We booked the Mirabella Catermaran through RCCL for our family of 4 (girls 5 & 2). The trip was fantastic but I can see how it would not be for everyone. First of all, let me address some of the common areas of concern in the reviews. The snorkelling stop is BUSY! The snorkelling is very good; lots of fish,... More

The staff is so nice and accommodating. This is a must do when visiting St Maarteen. They offered bottomless rum punch and beer. At the end they made homemade fresh sandwiches and chips with dip for everyone.

What a wonderful excursion for a day! We didn't have to get up "too early" from our cruise, and then had a nice catamaran ride to a small spot for snorkeling, and a subsequent ride to a beach for swimming. A very nice excursion for all ages!
