Great Tour
, Oct 2021
My wife and I had a great time. Spent our 10th anniversary on the speed boat and in the water! Great humor & island history. The first mate Damian was very cool!
Amazing, can't go wrong!

My husband and I decided to go on Captain Bob's Speed boat and we were not disappointed! You can't go wrong when you have the perfect combination of good vibes, beautiful scenery, delicious lunch, and a great tour guide... Brett was very funny, knowledgeable, and made us feel comfortable. Our safety and enjoyment were his top priorities. Would highly recommend this option if you are visiting St Maarten to have a great time and get a well-rounded view of this beautiful island.

Awesome boat trip!!! A MUST DO!!!!! One of the best boat tours ever!!!
, Sep 2021
I had an amazing time on the Captain Bob's boat tour. I would definitely recommend this boat tour to be put on top of everyone's list of must Do's!!!! Brett was so knowledgable on all of the beaches we stopped at. He knew everything there was to know about the entire island. My most memorable moment was when we docked at the Yellow beach which was only accessible by boat. We had drinks great appetizers and best of all I was able to feed, pet, and enjoy my time with the Iguanas Lol. Best part lol. MUST DO and BRETT is the best!!!!!!
Incredible day on the water.

Absolutely awesome day on the water. Knowledgeable professional and entertaining Caption Bret, comfortable, Safe, clean well maintained boat, well planned trip. Beautiful spots, genuine excellent service. A family business that cares about their customers. Honestly, they over deliver and under charge which is extremely rare these days. Easy Five stars.👍
Great job guys!

Capt. Brett was awesome! As a senior I was a little concerned about getting on and off the vessel. Brett was both helpful and concerned about the passengers health and safety. Awesome trip and a good experience!

Tour was fun and informative. Captain Bret was a great guide and very knowledgeable. Swam at some great beaches and saw some fish and sting rays.
Don’t miss this in St. Martin!
, Sep 2021
Wonderful experience!! Brett was an amazing Captain who kept things fun the whole day, while educating us on the island. Delicious lunch and cold beer with incredible views you will only see by boat. A must do in St. Martin!!
what a pity !

The Captain was nice and fun, but sadly the experience was really below our expectations. In terms of value for money, paying so much to eat only a mediocre sandwich and drink a few beers and sodas, it is really not correct. We were still hungry after the "meal". Although it is not their fault, we did not see anything on the snorkeling spots, due to heavy swell the previous days. To top it off, we missed the plane landing at Maho Beach. In short, i will not recommend my friends to pay so much for this tour, unless you review your meal plan.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
I'm sorry you found the meal disappointing. For the most part, people are very happy with the meal and mention it in their reviews but not everyone has the same taste. There are usually at least 2 sandwiches per person on the boat and not everyone eats both sandwiches so there is always extra. I'm sorry you did not realize that. There is also a good selection of types of sandwiches. As to the price, it is around what all boats charge in St. Martin for similar tours. Expenses have gone through the roof and we were shut down for an entire year and even though we lost so much money we have not raised our prices. In the description it say that we can't guarantee seeing a plane. It all depends on the schedule and there are not planes coming in every day all day. The flight schedule has been drastically reduced because of the pandemic. I wish you would try us again in better times and see why we have so many 5 star reviews. Please accept my apologies for not meeting your expectations. Capt. Bob
Must Experience!
