Great time!

Great snorkeling, great way to see the island and other beaches. We really enjoyed the low key ride and our guide was great.

Captain Jean Marc was extremely accommodating - he was excellent navigating the water. We chartered the 1/2 day snorkeling trip and Captain Jean Marc took us to excellent locations to snorkel and see beautiful points of interest of the island. Highly recommend!

Fabulous cruise around the island with stops for snorkeling at various Marine Parks. Jean-Marc the Captain was attentive and very knowledgeable and extremely nice. He pointed out the turtles and many other fish. The boat was very comfortable and well maintained. We had a fantastic trip and I cannot wait to do it again.

Seeing the beaches and the jet arrive at the airport was the best part of our trip to St. Maarten! So glad we booked the Keloa for 1/2 day to see the beaches. You just can't do this by renting a car. The snorkeling was fantastic, and watching the jet land at the airport was a once in a lifetime... More

This is a great private trip to take. This small boat takes you on a half day trip on one side of the island. They time the trip so you can be right under the planes when they land at the airport. Seeing the planes land is a must see ! This trip includes snorkeling near a small rock island... More

Our group of 8 booked a half day trip with Keloa. All the rave reviews, when it comes to the beauty and serenity of the island, the excursion, the boat are true. In this review I want to emphasize how amazing people who make it happen are. Starting with the booking process, I just want to say special thanks to... More

We spent a wonderfull morning with Jean Marc. He showed us the most beautiful parts of the island and stopped three times to do snorkeling. He knows the islans very well so he can give you all the information you are looking for. He asked my children at the end of the boat trip if they had a good time... More

Even though I truly think this is the best trip for snorkeling, I only gave 4 stars as equipment was old and dirty (black stuff that I think was mold inside 2 snorkel tubes). I recommend you bring your own. The reason it is the best is that Jean Marc will bring you to the best spots based on sea... More

On our recent trip to St. Marteen we hired Capt Jean-Marc to take us on a half day excursion. There were 3 couples - and our goal was to go to Pinel Island and some of the other beaches on that side of the island. Unfortunately we were picked up in Marigot (miscommunication by the booking company NOT Jean-Marc -... More
