Overview
Paddle across the largest saltwater lagoon in the Antilles on a guided kayak expedition. Your tour begins at Kim Sha Beach in Simpson Bay. Upon arrival receive a kayaking lesson and safety orientation before setting off on your sit-on-top kayak. You will follow your guide at a leisurely pace across the largest saltwater lagoon in the Antilles and marvel at the magnificent mega yachts that make St. Maarten their winter base from November to April. During your paddle your guide will point out sights of interest, including the imaginary water border between the Dutch and French sides of the island. A brief stop gives you a chance to rest your muscles as well as learn about the island’s vibrant history and the lagoon’s complex ecosystem before paddling back to Kim Sha for a refreshing dip in the ocean and a well deserved complimentary beverage.

My wife and I really enjoyed the tour. It was great to exercise on the water and to learn about the history of the island. Our tour guides, Casey, Chris and Nicky were awesome. We would highly recommend it!

Nice beach and good guides, but this is not a "serene" lagoon (as the cruise brochure said), and not the least bit leisurely (as the description states). This is an active port for enormous yachts, windy,and choppy seas. My partner and I paddled like crazy and I panicked a few

Hi Julie, thank you for choosing our tour and sharing your experience. Also thank you for giving kudos to our exceptional guides. Normally our kayak tour is very calm, as you start in a bay and head into an enclosed lagoon. However we do get very windy days from time to time, which makes the kayak part more of an effort. It is too bad you got us on one of those days.

We loved meeting our guide and having him show us around. My wife and I shared a tandem kayak, and the guide was patient and knowledgable. Took us all around, including for a swim, saw wildlife, got a workout. Very nice.
