What To Expect
We will pick you up at Chesterfield dock. After a short safety briefing, we will cast off along the beautiful shoreline of Sint Maarten. Get comfortable on board, and find your own private spot. Our first stop will be at Mullet Bay. There, we will drop anchor and enjoy the gorgeous Caribbean Sea. Jump into the water for a swim, float along on a noodle, gear up for a snorkeling excursion, or take a ride on one of our kayaks or stand-up paddleboard. Enjoy drinks (cocktails, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages) and food on the large aft deck or flybridge, or just relax and enjoy the view on our sundeck lounge. The forward trampoline area is also open to guests, and is ideal for lounging and soaking up the sun.
Admission Ticket Free
Our next stop will be at Maho Beach, located across the Princess Juliana International Airport runway, where we will watch planes take off and land. An absolutely astonishing view to enjoy while having a cold beverage or socializing at the inside bar. Have yourself a drink (cocktails, beer, and non-alcoholic beverages), and allow our hostesses to spoil you. After watching the planes, we will cast off to our next stop, Little Bay.
Admission Ticket Free
Our final stop before returning to the dock will be Little Bay. This small pretty beach is well protected by the outcrop of Fort Amsterdam right on the edge of Philipsburg.
This is the perfect spot to explore the tropical underwater world. For our snorkeling enthusiasts, Little Bay offers one of the rare beach snorkel locations, as the waters here are generally calm due to its 'cove like' nature and also the installation of solid rocky beach breaks. This makes it an ideal spot for children and beginners, and you can also use our selection of water equipment thus there is plenty to do for all of our guests. We will cast-off early enough to ensure our cruise ship guests will arrive back at the starting point on time.

Great excursion!! Crew was amazing!! Food was amazing and plenty of alcohol! Boat was roomy and super clean!!
Great time on the Phoenix!
The crew was friendly, fun, gave great and helpful instruction and knowledgeable. The catamaran was beautiful, clean, and well stocked. The food and refreshments were delicious. I highly recommend them!
Great day on the water!
We really enjoyed sailing aboard The Phoenix! It was a great day to enjoy the included drinks and the well prepared food. They were able to accommodate my food allergies into the meal with no issue. The only negative thing (out of their control) that happened on the trip was a younger child was getting sea sick, but they handled it very professionally and efficiently. They were then able to give the parent multiple solutions to help make the tour enjoyable for everyone. I think the only thing that would make the experience even better would offer an "adult only" option. Would highly recommend doing this tour either way.
Luxury at it’s finest
We had an excellent adventure. The food was delicious and our captain and first mate took great care of us . l would definitely recommend and would do it again. Thank you Guido and Carlos for an awesome 60th birthday celebration that was unforgettable .
The Captain and one man crew made sure everyone had a great time.Lunch was delicious and bar well stocked.Nicest restrooms of any catamaran I have ever been on.Perfect Day even with rough seas and a little rain.
Best trip ever! Food was delicious and the drinks were great! Enjoyed lying out in the front of the sailboat. Would definitely book again!
A must do!!
Captain and crew were a delight!! Boat was excellent. Snorkeling was fun. I totally would recommend this excursion
The staff was great!! Had a good experience and Drinks were amazing! Sint Maarten waters is beautiful! It was a good time!
Amazing day on the water
Guido, Carlos and Cheyenne were amazing from the very start of the trip. They were all very welcoming and we had a great day as a family on the boat. Our 3.5 yr old tried snorkeling and she loved it. Our sailing was a highlight of our trip. The lunch and drinks provided were also great!
Sailing with a wow!!
The Phoenix is a beautiful well Maintained Catamaran! The captain Guido, who is also the owner and his crew were incredible. The 3 of them worked together with such ease to make sure all passengers onboard were enjoying themselves and being pampered. They also prepared a very delicious lunch, which was amazing! We had 2 stops while on the charter, 1st for snorkeling/ swimming exploring Little Bay with our 2nd stop in Simpson Bay to swim/ float and enjoy lunch, all surrounded by the beautiful Caribbean blue waters and St Maarten island as a back drop. Even though we encountered some light rain we still had a terrific time. This day was fun filled and I strongly recommend The Phoenix!
This is a must do!!
Great day with two nice hosts!

This boat and this tour company are the best! We had a wonderful time and they took excellent care of us. They could easily have cancelled since there were only four of us, but they took us and they played right along with us. It couldn’t have been better.
Best part of our vacation!

Absolute best part of our vacation in Sint Maarten!!! Captain Guido and his First Mate Cheyenne were so very friendly and accommodating! The price was very reasonable for the fantastic day we had on board their beautiful catamaran. We highly recommend this trip!!!
The best way to experience St Maarten!
This is my second time onboard the Phoenix, and will be my "go to" excursion every time I am in St Marteen. The boat is so beautiful, crew is superb, and with smaller groups than the cruise ship options, sailing on the Phoenix is a no-brainer!
Absolutely a fun trip
This is a definite on the list. The crew were so friendly and hospitable. They provided beverages, lunch, and snacks. Everything tasted great. They took our safety very seriously. The two snorkeling/swim spots were great. They made sure we made our final stop in time to see the large planes come in. Thanks for a great sail.
Experience of a lifetime
Our sailing day on the Phoenix was nothing short of perfect. From the booking process, to the directions and meetup instructions, to the goodbye celebration, and everything in between- it was all expertly choreographed to ensure an amazing and seamless experience. The catamaran itself is in pristine condition, well maintained, and the attention to safety was always evident. Since they intentionally keep the group size small, we almost felt like we had this amazing yacht all to ourselves! The guided snorkel experience was second to none, lunch was prepared fresh (including respecting dietary restrictions my wife had) and was incredible, snacks were fresh and tasty, and of course the drinks were always on point. They even know when the large planes are landing at SXM and will be there right on schedule for some amazing photo ops.
I can go on and on, but suffice it to say that Guido, Cheyenne, and the rest of the staff are second to none. This is something we’ll be talking about for the rest of our lives.
The staff made our...
The staff made our birthday the most enjoyable one ever! Thanks for everything. They were very accommodating.
Unplanned private excursion!
There was plenty to do on this luxury tour! Sunbathing, kayaking, snorkeling and dancing. Because some people cancelled, my friends and I had the entire Catamaran to ourselves. Plus, our captain and hostess were so friendly and fun! I would do it again in a heartbeat!
Couldn't have enjoyed this more. The staff are exceptional as is the food and drinks on offer.
The boat is genuinely luxurious, and the Kayaking at Maho beach simply stunning.
Also timed it perfectly so that we had planes fly right above us.
The excursion was awesome, the team of Guido and Carlos took great care of us, they Led a snorkeling trip at one stop and we had ample time to swim at another. Lunch that was included was good and accommodated vegetarians. Drinks were good as well.
Highlight of our trip
Very friendly staff, the catamaran was in excellent condition, and the drinks and lunch made on the boat were delicious! It was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend.
