This was a fun excursion. The snorkeling overlooked a sunken helicopter, a submarine and a sail boat. We saw some fish but there was no reef or, what I would call typical snorkel viewing, on this tour. It was a great experience non the less and we enjoyed being able to be in the ocean and see just how clear... More

I paid $74.00 for each person to go on this Snorkel tour when I was on The Allure of the Sea cruise. The snorkeling consisted of staff throwing food in the water. The fish that gathered for the food was our snorkeling experience. I fully expected a coral reef with beautiful fish. All I got was a bunch of fish... More

We recently visited ST. Maarten and had a excursion with the Tiki Hut glass bottom boat. That particular day the weather was cooler and rained off an on. The staff and crew were very friendly and turned what would have been a crappy day in to a great day despite the bad weather. I would highly recommend them.

We were hesitant about a "floating tiki hut" but it was very large, spacious, and had plenty of chairs for everyone. the kids loved... More

You take a boat from the port, in which the crew was fantastic, very informative about the area.The tiki hut was a good size, lots of people comfortably. We paid for the all inclusive tiki hut, which gave us free lunch ( burgers n chips) and all... More

We booked this excursion from our cruise. It looked like fun. They have a boat to take you to the bar. We assumed the bar had a beach and looks so in the pictures. When we rounded the corner there were 4 boat docks anchored together in the water in a place off the rocks. OMG no beach? We thought... More

Thank you for the great review! Although I would like to make clear that the Tiki hut is a great place for families with children. As a matter of fact, children under 5 years can go for free! Tiki hut is a place for snorkeling but also for people who just want to relax and enjoy the tropical paradise. More

We enjoyed the Tiki Hut excursion that Carnival promoted. When we arrived there were a lot of people but the water taxi comes frequently to take people back. While we waited for a lounge chair we enjoyed the unlimited snorkeling. The food was pretty good. The service was good. The rum punch was also tasty. Kick back, relax and enjoy!

My husband not being a swimmer I was apprehensive about a snorkeling Excursion but this one was the right choice it allowed you to sit on the floating platform in calm Waters with reasonably priced drinks or snorkel at your leisure the staff was very helpful and very courteous would definitely do this again
