Family Fun, Beach & Nature Walk (St. Maarten)
“This family-friendly outing visits unspoiled Guana Bay Beach, located on the Atlantic coast of St. Maarten. Wave action here is ideal for body surfing and boogie-boarding, and one of the guides will take charge of the young ones boogie board lessons. Adults can participate as well or watch the action. The whole family then sets off on a sightseeing nature walk along an old plantation trail offering panoramic views.”
Pirate Schooner to Turtle Cove (St. Thomas, USVI)
“Do pirates really say “Arrgghhhh?” Family members can find out when they step aboard the classic schooner “Bones” for some high seas fun. All swabbies are invited to take a nice long walk down the short plank for a “wee” dip in Turtle Cove. The friendly, motley crew provides snorkel equipment. On the fun sail back to St. Thomas kids can become an honorary captain and take a turn at the wheel. “Pirates” will come home with a tattoo, eye-patch and a souvenir photo.”
