If you look for the best St Maarten and nearby islands ( Anguilla, St Barth ) have to offer, with the friendly atmosphere that only a small company can offer, I, Capt. Sam, will be happy to welcome you on board!

Our fleet of 2 speed boats from 600cv to 900cv answer to any needs of going faster or smoother, through calm or rough waters, and are fully equipped with open bar drinks and snorkeling gear.

You can choose to discover our most popular tour, 6hrs, for $109 that starts 10mn walking distance from the Cruise Ships Dock in Philipsburg and designed to fit into most of the Cruise Ships schedules and include scenery of 80% of St Martin coast, 3 uninhabited islands, the best snorkeling and beaches in St Maarten (also the famous Maho beach with the big planes approaching right over your hats), and lunch included in a beach restaurant.

You can also try our private boat charters to get a boat only for you and your lover, family or friends, and discover the best that St Martin, Anguilla or St Barths has to offer. You can choose the places you want to discover, or let us design a trip that will answer to all your needs.

So you can contact me, Captain Sam, and we will organize together a lifetime experience =)

Great day

Sam was a great captain, it was the best day of our vacation. Pinel Island was the perfect drop off at the end of our trip, outrageous lobsters.

Captain Sam is an excellent guide to the beautiful waters around St. Martin. He is knowledgeable, courteous and fun. He showed us a totally different perspective of the gorgeous island of St. Martin. The boat is clean, comfortable and very fast. We had a fantastic time and would highly recommend Powerboat Adventures and Captain Sam.

Capt Sam was a great value and showed us so much of both sides of the island. This adventure got us thoroughly wet, but I loved every minute of it. We snorkeled, ate great food in Grand Case, saw the planes flying in for a landing, swam in beautiful waters and enjoyed the boat ride.

My wife and I were on a cruise and booked this trip through Royal Caribbean. We were able to see some of the island and get some basic information on the island and the history of the area. The snorkeling area was just ok, and part of the reef was damaged from the hurricane which had gotten close a month... More

We were a group of 7 guys in St. Maarten for a Bachelor Party looking to charter a boat for the afternoon. Captain Sam tailored our trip for exactly what we wanted to do including snorkeling at Tintamarre island, drinks at Pinel island, as well as stops at some other nice beaches. The price was very reasonable per person especially... More

We were looking for a snorkeling tour while in St. Martin's for the day and found Captain Sam's Adventures. It was such a fabulous day. I emailed Sam to book the tour and he got back to me right away. The tour is a short walk from the pier, 10 minutes and easy to find. We were met by Sam... More

Our family group of 6 recently did the powerboat tour around St. Martin/St. Maarten and it was absolutely fantastique! It was an easy walk from the cruise-ship terminal, the boat was large enough so that 15 total were comfortable and not over-crowded. The drinks were cold and never-ending. The sea turtles were fantastic. You have to look for them in... More
