Your Day, Your Way!
Welcome to the friendly island of St. Maarten. Come enjoy an unforgettable snorkel experience from the floating Tiki Hut. The Tiki Hut is located in Little Bay – a scenic, sheltered and calm bay only a 15 minute boat ride from Philipsburg. On the snorkeldives website you can see we are listed as a great snorkel location.
Spend the day on our delightful Tiki Hut floating snorkel platform equipped with bar and grill at your leisure. The Tiki Hut is moored in crystal waters in a secluded cove, above an ocean snorkel park. You can stay as long as you like, and this excursion is fun for all ages and abilities. With lunch, ice cold drinks, snorkel gear and sun loungers available, your day can only go your way.
After meeting our shore crew you will embark our private water shuttle for a short 15 minute boat ride to the Tiki Hut platform located in Little Bay. The shuttle makes frequent trips back to the mainland in Philipsburg and you are free to hop on and off whenever you like.
Once onboard the Tiki Hut platform, you will receive a short safety briefing. After this you are free to snorkel, swim, or just enjoy the scenery from a lounge chair on the multi-level spacious sunbathing decks.
Snorkel masks, fins, and flotation gear is provided for adults and k
ids. Noodles and flotation belts make less experienced snorkelers comfortable
in the water. Our crew is always available to help you with the equipment, and to watch over the snorkelers in the water for safety and comfort.
The water surrounding the Tiki hut is approximately 25 feet deep and very clear. Here you will find a variety of sunken wrecks and coral making up a designated marine park, with all kinds of tropical marine life, offering unlimited snorkeling time. There is also a shallow 3 feet deep pool teeming with fish, for the kids and adults who are not so comfortable in deep water as well as a fun diving board.
Make it your day and enjoy the scenery from a deck chair, bathe in the sun or read a book in the shade. Enjoy your drink while floating in a noodle chair, watch the children jumping of the diving board and relax!
Food & Drinks
All that snorkeling and relaxing makes you hungry! The big juicy BBQ hamburgers, delicious fish sandwiches and hotdogs are all cooked to your order on the grill and served on fresh bread. Available at the bar the attentive crew is ready to serve water, sodas, and a variety of beers, frozen drinks, fruit punch and Rum punch.
