The tour departs from Kim Sha beach in Simpson Bay (look for the line of orange kayaks on the beach). It takes approximately 30 minutes by taxi from the Cruise Ship Terminal to Kim Sha. Please arrive at least 10 minutes before your tour.

This activity will end right where it started.
Find your way to St Maarten's Kim Sha Beach to meet your guide and group. Get a short lesson on safety and paddling technique, then climb in to your 2-person, sit-on-top kayaks and paddle out into Simpson Bay. Watch the shoreline glide by and get an up-close view of the variety of marine vessels moored in Simpson Bay. With favorable weather conditions, you can follow your guide around Pelican Rocks and into the next bay. Move at a relaxed pace, with plenty of rest breaks to view the neighboring islands and birds at rest on the rocks. 

Reach your destination, a beach in a protected cove, and get fitted for snorkeling equipment. Listen to a short orientation, then follow your guide out to the coral reef and nearby rocky caverns. During 45 minutes of snorkeling, see tang, needle nose, trumpet fish, angel fish and parrot fish flitting about, as well as other marine creatures your guide points out. 

Paddle back to Kim Sha Beach in your kayak, then go ashore and have a drink at the Greenhouse Restaurant. Sit down with your group and discuss the marine life you saw and its importance to St Maarten's ecosystem. 

Please note: Single kayaks are reserved for guides or cases where there are an odd number of travelers.

Please note: If weather conditions are not favorable for kayaking, you will participate in a beach swim instead.

Chris and Juan Pablo and the service provided by TriSport were all excellent. Due to stormy weather the previous day, and windy conditions, we were not able to snorkel. However, the kayaking was good.
