Billy Bones Snorkel Tour

This tour surpassed my expectations. Marina was within walking distance of cruise ship dock and easy to find. The crew was extremely helpful and friendly. The boat left on time and returned in plenty of time to board our ship. We made several stops which eventually took us around the entire island. I couldn't snorkel because my beard wouldn't allow a good seal with the mask, however I was very content just to float around the boat on the noodles provided by the crew. My wife had the time of her life snorkeling. The on board refreshments were plentiful and the hot lunch was superb. We were treated very well and enjoyed ourselves immensely.

Fantastic Scenery - Even better guides and crew!

Everything you've read that's positive is true. 1 - Exceptional guides with a mind for keeping both the participants and the environment safe. 2 - First class equipment available including vision correction lenses in masks and wetsuits. 3. Incredible guides in the water with the guests tor safety and pointing out beautiful things that casual snorkelers may never see on their own. 4. Great food and beverages. That's just the top 4 things... I could go on. Thanks to "D" and her crew for the best snorkeling we've ever experienced.

It was a very memorable day for my daughter and I. Captain Rick was very funny and informative.The boat ride around the Island was exciting and offered beautiful scenery and the Captain's fascinating narrative on the island's history and description of the significance of what we were seeing. The snorkeling on the two stops we made was great crystal clear water, coral formations, colorful tropical fish and green turtles. Our stop on Pinell Isle allowed us to see the native Iguanas and the nice beach bar/restaurants there. Definitely worth the price! I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting St.Martin/St.Maarten.

Our family of 4 including our almost 16 and 17 year old daughters loved this snorkeling adventure. A true highlight of our cruise to the caribbean. Our captain Kevin and first-mate Chris made this charter an unforgettable experience! If we can get back to St. Maarten we would do this charter again in a minute!

Billy Bones Boatcharters is fantastic. Balasz, the owner, really makes you feel like family. He will pick you up anywhere you are staying. Captain Jim was great. He makes sure you are having a great time. We loved it so much, we booked 2 trips with them. I would definitely recommend them to anyone wanting to do a boat trip and snorkeling.
