Sailing in Sint Maarten and St Martin
On our return to the jetty, we pass the end of the runway, often as one of the large jets are taking off. This is a spectacular sight, so don't forget your camera. You will also be able to see some of the shipwrecks from past hurricanes and some of the island resorts from a whole different view.
Eagle Tours - Sail away on the Biggest, the Fastest, the Best. Sail aboard the Golden Eagle to a Real Deserted Island. Explore the island, look for shells or snorkel in crystal clear waters. Golden Eagle will nuzzle her bow into a fabulous golden sandy beach of the secluded Island of Tintamarre. Our friendly crew will provide you with flotation and snorkeling equipment, together with any help you may need.
Practically nothing disastrous can happen in the lagoon so enjoy the protected waters. There are no destructive swells, cruise ships, freighters, whales or submarines. The most consistent wind in the lagoon is to be found on the leeward (Western) side. The most variable wind direction and difficult gusts are to be found closest to the mountains.
The Sailing Area
The Simpson Bay Lagoon is inland water of French and Dutch territory connected to the sea by two channels. The western part of the lagoon is pristine large and undisturbed and we recommend this area for pleasant day cruising. The Eastern part is home to yacht marinas and yachting services. 95% of the lagoon is sufficiently deep for the boats
