Snuba St Maarten
#6 of 58 Outdoor Activities in Philipsburg
In addition to the Snuba portion, you get an enjoyable boat ride from Great Bay to Little Bay, have ample time to snorkel, and enjoy some rum punch at the end.
The experience is a great intro to the idea of scuba diving and being under water for an extended period of time without all the anxiety that comes with the scuba diving and carrying your own tank.

Kids had an amazing time, even mine, who have been diving in the Maldives, Aruba, Sipadan, etc. Something about sailing on a private charter and snorkeling in the warm Caribbean is just magic.
I have always dreamed of swimming with sea turtles, so rather than go for a traditional snorkeling trip, we opted for this excursion.

We first did the SUP to Creole Rock with some amazing snorkeling there and a few days later we went with him to the mangrove in a canoe, spotting a lot of iguanas.
It took a good 15-20 mins to paddle out there (great arm/core workout!), but then we had some time to swim, snorkel, take photos etc.
