Hotel pickup and drop-off
Simpson Bay Resort and Marina , Billy Folly Road, 37, Simpson Bay, Philipsburg, Sint Maarten

We are located on the marina of the Simpson Bay Resort in Pelican. Please leave your hotel with enough time to spare as afternoon traffic can be hectic - especially if coming from the Maho area. Be aware of bridge times as this can back traffic up. IMPORTANT NOTE: Check in 5pm for this trip.

5:30 PM
This activity will end right where it started.
Make your way to Pelican Marina to board the 'Tango', a 63-foot (19-meter) sailing catamaran. 

Climb on board and find a spot to sit down and relax. Get to know your friendly crew and fellow passengers as you sidle up to the open bar and munch on snacks. Feel the Caribbean breeze in your hair and the late-afternoon sun on your skin while the impressive boat sets sail up the coast of St Maarten. Watch the famous Caribbean sunset paint the sky a dozen colors. As the sun sinks toward the horizon, be sure to have your camera on hand for fantastic photo ops. 

Sail back to Simpson Bay and, when the 'Tango' drops anchor in beautiful surroundings, dine on a buffet-style Creole dinner. Choose from baby back ribs, Creole chicken, salads, bread, beans, plantains and rice. After dinner, dig in to dessert and partake in some of the local rum. Dance the remainder of the evening away to Caribbean beats.

The 3-hour sunset cruise concludes when the boat docks at Pelican Marina.

We enjoyed the dancing after dinner, 2nd time on the cruise and would love to see a longer playlist to include more Caribbean music on future trips.

Amazing Dinner Cruise
, Apr 2022
We were 30 seconds from the boat leaving. The bridge traffic was insane. The crew waited for us. A member of the crew literally called me and gave detailed directions. We were so blessed they didn’t leave without us. Best 40th Wedding Anniversary was on the dinner cruise. Staff, food and drinks were delicious! A beautiful evening! Highly recommend!

Loved it!
, Sep 2021
It was an all around great time. Loved it! The only thing that was different is you do not get to take shoes on the catamaran which wasn't bad just surprising when we got there. All in all it was awesome!

My Time On Tango Caribbean
, Aug 2021
I had a wonderful time. I was with 3 other people. Actually, we almost didn’t make the tour because of traffic so a huge “THANK YOU “ for waiting for us. The food was good and we danced the time away in spite of the rain. I will definitely recommend to anyone who visits Sint Maarten.
Excellent turn up

50th Birthday
, Jul 2021
My wife and I needed some alone time from the family on this vacation. We had a phenomenal time and would suggest everyone who visits Saint Maarten/Saint Martin.
A night to remember
, Jul 2021
The crew was wonderful from departure to dock. I enjoyed the food and the ambiance was perfect. I will do again on my next visit to the island.
Terrible service
, Nov 2020
We took an 80€ R/T taxi for this cruise. We arrived there approximately 35 min BEFORE the departure but no one was there to check us in and the boat wasn’t even pulled into the dock. There was no contact number because the only one was for their office and no one was there. I have tried messaging them through the Viator app and have nothing in return. We went upstairs to have the hotel concierge call them and they did and they argued that our tour was not until the following day (that wasn’t true and we had proof) and we asked the concierge if we could talk to them and when they asked they said “where did you get this phone number” but eventually allowed us. Still got no apology or a guarantee we would get our money back, only the promise we could go the next day (which would be another 80€ taxi and we already had plans). Highly do not recommend this company.

Dinner Sailing
, Mar 2020
We booked this activity well in advance, as it sounded appealing. And, after the dinner sailing, I would have to say it was enjoyable, but certainly not outstanding. Being totally unfamiliar with the area, the Aqua Mania location was rather difficult to find. However, once there, we were greeted warmly and check-in was very simple. The crew was extremely welcoming and thorough in their explanation of what was to follow. Drinks were offered (even encouraged), and appetizers were passed. Sailing departed right on time, heading up the coast and returned to anchor near the departure dock. The dinner buffet was adequate, but certainly not gourmet; salad, rice, veggies, chicken, beef set up in typical self-serve style. Quality was okay, but not what we would consider anything great. Bottom line: A fun event but not worth the $80 per person ... plus the expected gratuity upon disembarking.
