Disappointing
jillmburnside
, Feb 2020
The snorkeling was ok- but our trip ended an hour earlier than we were promised. One person came back early from the 2nd dive to ask if we could see Maho Beach- at which time we all were told to come in. The food wasn’t great. We were told to go ask store owners for lettuce for the iguanas. We were sent on our own and given little instruction how to really see the iguanas. There was 11 in our group and none of us had a great time or would recommend this company again.

Dear jillmbur, Thank you for choosing Coconut Reef and for taking the time to provide your feedback. You have our sincerest apologies for not getting to enjoy our Snorkel and Discovery Tour at its best. I was extremely disappointed to see the boat had come back early. I gave the captain explicit instructions on what time to return to the dock. He chose to ignore me and put his own interests ahead of yours in coming back early. Had he have listened to me, you would have had time to stop by Maho Beach and still be back in plenty of time to re-board your cruise. We have taken appropriate disciplinary action to ensure that this will not happen again. Our tour is a 'guided' tour and we try our very best to keep things casual and laid back, not to make guests feel rushed. We are tourists ourselves and we absolutely hate being treated like cattle. Apparently, our crew were not as attentive as they should have been. For that, you have our abject apology. That is not how we typically operate. I would also like to point out that our company policy does not condone the feeding of any wildlife on our tours. Besides being against the rules of the Marine Park in which we travel, it is just not environmentally sound. Unfortunately, it is still an accepted practice for some people in our industry. It seems we need to step up our crew training. You were not very specific about the food provided on the tour, so I'm not sure why it was not 'great'. Many people have complimented our picnic style lunch in the past. Perhaps the quality of the food was not as good as it should have been on the day? Was it not enough? Could we have included something more? I'm not sure. All I can say is that we have gone back and forward between a picnic lunch and a sit down lunch at a local restaurant. In our experience, it's a 50/50 split on what guests prefer. Some people like an extended lunch stop, others prefer more boat/beach/snorkel time. We opt for the picnic style lunch as it gives us more time on the water. If there is something more we can add to the menu, we're all ears. Again, you have our most sincere apologies for not getting the trip you expected. We do hope if you are back this way again that you will give us a chance to redeem ourselves. I promise, you will not be disappointed again. Best Regards Craig Nicholls Coconut Reef Powerboat Tours

Coconut Reef Snorkel Tour

We really enjoyed our day on St. Maarten. Our tour was extra special with Sam & Yannis because there were only 4 of us so it was like a private tour. We didn't get to see any turtles, but the fish were great. Lunch was delicious at the beach restaurant and we enjoyed getting pictures of the many iguanas while waiting. A quick float before another snorkel stop after lunch. Then we waited outside the airport to watch the landing of the large planes just a few feet above our heads. Sam & Yannis were super nice and helpful. I would highly recommend this excursion. The departure point was a little hard to find with the instructions given. It is a 10 min walk from cruise port, so don't pay for a taxi unless you have mobility issues. Go out of port area, make a left turn and walk to Chesterfield Restaurant. The marina behind the restaurant is where you'll find the Coconut Reef boat and guides.

We enjoyed snorkeling in St Maartin. The guide was very informative. Even told us about hiking trails to do after the boat ride which we actually did. Saw stingrays, dolphins, one sea turtle and lot of fish on the reefs. Definitely worth the time. Learned about most of the island as we went around from beach to beach.

We had so much fun on this tour! Mac and Damien were so informative and took us to some amazing spots!! The tour is long and we definitely got our money’s worth, and they even had a yummy lunch waiting for us after we fed the iguanas. I can’t recommend them enough ! I don’t like to go through cruise lines for tours because it is to commercialized . these guys took us to an amazing private beach and took us all over the island, telling us the history as we go. Book with them and you won’t be sorry!

Our family had an outstanding day! Captain Wayne and Damien took great care to make sure we had everything we needed. They pointed out lots of points of interest throughout the day. At Creole Rock we saw an amazing coral reef and got to pet wild iguanas at Pinel. Great trip! Thanks guys!

We had an amazing time! The snorkeling was fantastic! We saw lots of turtles and stingrays. We also saw a barracuda and other beautiful tropical fish. Lunch was great, and the crew topped of the day! Thank you Wayne and Anthony for giving us an amazing tour of the island that we already love!

This is a great all day excursion for cruise passengers looking for a fun day in the water. It is all inclusive of drinks, food, and a great, enthusiastic crew. We were a party of 12 which happened to be max capacity for this speedboat. It ended up being the best experience of our vacation for both kids and adults. I highly recommend it!
