This is hands down the best guided tour of the waters of St. Maarten. You will have a guide that will introduce you to the cultures and rich history of the Islands and all our stops. There will be an open bar on board where you can have drinks. Music will be played during your voyage for ambience. This is a very intimate experience with each guest catered to generously, since we only carry a maximum of 10 ppl. Lunch is also included. If there is any way we can make your trip better, please do not hesitate to ask

Beautiful island with two nice restaurants, restrooms, chairs and umbrellas. There is a little shop on the island with the cutest souvenirs at a great price. White sandy beach, limited shade so recommend bringing sunscreen!

This was such an amazing experience! For my husbands birthday we took a 5 minute boat to Pinel! The services at the beach bar and restaurant was amazing! The views and the location are just perfect

After 5 weeks on St Martin island, I can understand the desire to get away and do something else. Pinel Island is not “it”. A short ferry ride from Col de Sac neighborhood of SxM island, it is something I wish I had skipped. Small beach gets crowded with both locals and tourists. Locals know to reserve chairs ahead of time, so if you really with to see this small island, consider doing so. That said, our experience was mediocre at best. We went on a Sunday, and it did not turn into a funday! Crowded with little children and older children (late teens, early 20s), it felt like a kindergarten filled with screams, crying tantrums, and obnoxious sounds (from the teenagers). Water was murky and not clear. Service was okay (we were at the Yellow Bar), but prices were ridiculously up-charged. On average, a bottle of wine on Pinel was 25% higher than on SXM. Um, why? Even though we’ve had plenty of time on SXM, I wish I would’ve skipped Pinel all together.

It’s a nice but very expensive beach experience. 48$ for four people on the the ferry. 15 for two chairs and umbrella, lunch was good but pricey. I would not return I prefer many of the gorgeous free beaches much more!

This small island is definitely a must see when in Saint Martin. The island can be reached with a short boat ride leaving from Cul de Sac and offers a terrific beach and a pure relaxing experience. For snorkellers there is also the chance to spot some turtles, rays and fishes nearby
