Doubloon Snorkeling and Sailing

http://disneycruise.disney.go.com/cr...l-and-snorkel/

We did this a few years ago with my 13 and 7 year old and had a great time! We are going again and will take the 12 and 10 year olds we have.

The guys are great! Funny! You get a tattoo, pineapple and drinks.

Bison Tip Stew

There was a local pub, Delly Deck at St. Marteen and got some great food and beer. Kid friendly as well. Just walked from the ship a bit. Locals eat here FYI. The OX Tail stew was delicious!

Glad I found this thread. I'll be crusing on the Disney Fantasy (eastern) in May 2015. This info will help in choosing excursions.

Has anyone taken the "St. John Trunk Bay Beach and Snorkel Tour".

Wonder if you have to do the "Snorkel" portion of the tour. I'm looking for an excrusion which would include some beach time on St. John. It doesn't appear that there are many options offered by DCL.

You can swim instead and it's only 90 min of beach time so be aware in advance.

Thanks, I noticed that on the excursion description. I liked this excursion becasue it was only 1/2 a day, about 4 hours. Decisions, Decisions! At least I have about 12 months to plan!

St. Marteen Beach - $10

We decided to just walk a short ways down the beach at St. Marteen to save money. LOTS of umbrellas and people wanting you to stay in their spot so you can buy their drinks. We didn't of course...brought our own. But, if you need a restroom, some have availability if you ask before you buy and take a seat. We had a great time and were the only ones from the ship that went here.

Thanks you so much for your post! This is probably what we'll be doing too as our budget is super-tight. Did you take a taxi and if so did you ask to go to a particular beach or could you just walk there right from the port? My kids will be 15, 12 and 7 and just want to swim and snorkel.

Thanks for sharing! We're hoping to try some local cuisine that is not too pricey!

Has anyone done the Seaworld Explorer tour on St. Maarten? If so, does the tour start in the morning? Was hoping to possibly do the tour in the morning and then have time to go to Great Bay beach afterwards, if time. I think my 2 kids (7 and 3) would like this tour and it doesn't seem to take up a ton of the day (if it leaves in the a.m.).

A few questions...

For those that did the 12m Regatta in St. Martin - when you get back, is there time to see the rest of the island? Mainly would like to go to the border as well as Maho Beach to see the planes.

Also at Castaway Cay - does anyone have a review of the Watercraft Ski Adventure – Single Rider excursion? Is it worth it? We've never done jet skis before.
