St. Maarten Pirate Sail & Swim

St. Maarten Pirate Sail & Swim

St. Maarten Pirate Sail & Swim

Sail a tall ship, hear tales from the high seas and be a pirate for a day. The brigantine Lord Sheffield departs Dock Maarten (which is located a short walk from the cruise ship dock in St Maarten/Phillipsburg) and immediately heads to Little Bay Snorkel Park, a beautiful location set in a deep, safe bay. The Little Bay Snorkel Park features a rich aquatic environment with many species of fish augmented with interesting underwater attractions including a sunken helicopter, airplane, cannons and a submarine. A guided tour of the snorkel area is provided. You can also enjoy jumping off the bowsprit or floating on noodles with a rum punch in your hand.
You then go sailing (the engine will be off) enhanced by Caribbean sailing music, plenty of grub, (including our famous BBQ ribs and chicken) and plenty of grog ( including rum punch, margaritas, juices, sodas, beers and mixed drinks of all kinds). Get to know the crew and fellow passengers as this is an intimate cruise.
This tour is perfect for cruise ship visitors as it allows you have plenty of fun on the water on a unique vessel while also allowing time to explore the town of Philipsburg with its fabulous shopping areas and crazy beach scene. This tour is also specifically designed so that pretty much whatever happens… you will get back to the ship on-time.
