Tour Details

After making your way to the meeting point in Simpson Bay, you will meet your guide for a paddling demonstration on the beach.

After your quick lesson, you will board your sit-on-top type kayaks, which offer exceptional stability and follow your guides on a gentle paddle across the bay and under the Simpson Bay Bridge and into the Lagoon. You will pass the incredible mega yachts docked at the various marinas which dot the coast line of the Simpson Bay Lagoon (Mega Yacht season is from November to April) and explore the mangroves along the Bellevue coastline.

The guides will point out interesting creatures like the Upside Down Jellyfish and the strange Sea Cucumbers which thrive in these shallow waters. Keep your eyes open for the rarely seen Grey and Blue Herons which nest in these quiet havens.

Continue on along the coast where you will be shown the invisible border which has signified a peaceful separation of the Dutch and French parts of St. Maarten since the 1500s.

Paddling past some of the world’s most luxurious motor yachts you will continue out through the Bridge into the quiet bay for a well deserved swim at the beautiful Simpson Bay Beach.

Return to your starting point where you will enjoy a cold drink and good conversation with your guides at a nearby restaurant.
