My family, consisting of daughter, her husband and two children, my husband and I, vacationed in St. Maarten August 10 thru the 17th. Prior to arriving in St. Maarten, I contacted 4 companies that I found on the internet, requesting information on a “day boat trip”. Each one responded with “we can take you – where do you want to go?” To which, I responded “we don’t know where we want to go, as we’ve never been there. Perhaps you can put a couple of packages together and let me know.” I also gave them such information as “our party consists of 4 adults, 2 children ages 5 and 8, and we all enjoy sight seeing, snorkeling, sampling different foods of the Islands”.
Only one person responded to my request, and that was Offshore Sensations. They had not only put a package together, but promised us the “day of our life”.
I also mentioned to them that it would be my daughter's birthday – and they said they would have something special for her.
Well, Offshore Sensations picked us up in St. Maarten at 9:30 on Wednesday, August 14th.
From that minute, for the rest of the trip, was non-stop fun! They took us to some of the world's most beautiful beaches, including Shoal Beach. We snorkeled in some coves and reefs so beautiful, you thought you were inside some National Geographic Scene. They provided us with non-stop food and beverages on the boat, along with a good mix of laughter and friendship. Yes, friendship! We had never met these people before, but instantly felt like life-long friends.
Indeed, it was trip we will never forget – and will be “return customers” each and every time we return to the Islands. We do go to the Islands at least every other year, and may be returning sooner than that.
Sincerely, Shirley Painter
