    Everything about the trip was top notch. We snorkeled in four different locations, enjoyed a full lunch of: ribs, chicken, mahi, salads and our crew was wonderful. The bar was open all day too. There are less expensive options, on the island, but do yourself a favor and spend the extra couple dollars on The Original Farewell Tour. You will love it!

    The day was amazing but I did think it was mis-represented by saying it was a Snorkel sail. That opportunity did present it's self one time in that day and a second time if you were very independent.
    The waters were beautiful and the crew was great as we sailed around the island of St. Maarten and we all had a great time.

    My husband and I had a great time, we were picked up from our hotel in Orient Bay, and
    were taken to the catamaran, it was a full boat of people, all friendly.
    We set out and they announced what we were passing, which beaches, ect.
    We stopped in Grand Case for a fantastic lunch, then on board again, it was to
    rough to go on the Orient side so they stopped at happy Bay beach, a beautiful
    beach. then they served sandwiches on the way back, all in all it was a great trip.

    We were older by a generation or more from most of the other guests and we also have some mobility problems to deal with but none the less we were made to feel quite welcome and the crew went well out of their way to see to it that we got the most out of the outing. After a certain age just getting into a dingy becomes an adventure. Many thanks to that crew and to the barkeep who kept us well oiled.

    It is the little details that make for a great experience. Onboard Quality Time for this Sailing/snorkeling trip around the island we enjoyed sunshine, warm water and excellent service! The crew was very engaging and attentive making certain that everyone was having a good time. On the short trips betweewn beach and snorkel locations, the crew was serving drinks and food, singing and dancing with the smaller children. One thing that stands out here is that the crew talked with the guests, but more importantly they listened and asked questions. They engaged the guests and us all feel comfortable. Quite an uncommon experience. The music selection was quite varied, not too loud, and with something to please everyone. The drinks and food were good and plentiful including a wide variety of non-alcoholic options. Lunch was very nice mahi or chicken at a small cafe on the beach. During the stop over for lunch, the crew cleaned and washed the bathrooms! Thank you! We have been on many sailing excursions in the indian ocean, Mediterranean, Caribbean, Hawaii and eslewhere, this one standouts as one of the very best!

    Took some friends on the trip around the island. It was our second time and it was amazing. The crew was very professional and friendly. You gotta do it when you go to St. Marrten.

    My husband and I were originally scheduled to do this tour on Tues, June 10th, but I came down with a 24 hour bug and we couldn't make it. My husband met the driver at the designated spot and told him we wouldn't be going and we didn't think anything more of it. I figured we were just SOL on the money I spent. About an hour later we got a call from the company asking if we wanted to reschedule for Friday! I couldn't believe it and we of course said yes. That was so nice of them and we really enjoyed the trip. The crew was great and the snorkeling was awesome. The open bar was a plus and we were out all day with numerous stops around the island. I would recommend this tour group to everyone who wants a good time with "Quality Time"! Thanks again for a great vacation.
