Golden Eagle Catamaran is operated by Out Island Charters. These boats include the famous Golden Eagle Catamaran, which is known to be the best ½ Day Cruise on St. Maarten / St. Martin with sailing, snorkeling, and open bar on the way home. Out Island also offers an exciting day of Power Rafting to Anguilla. Our Power Rafts have a shady bit, and visit 3 locations, one which is the most beautiful Sandy Island (Anguilla) you have ever seen. We also offer a 2-story Party Boat Ride and Tour of the Island and the Lagoon of St. Maarten / St. Martin. On it, you will get to know the island well, with our amazing local tour guides. If you have a group, you may want to charter our private boat. I have been told that is creates memories that last a life time. Can you image you and your closest friends and family jamming away at the sounds of waves and music as you make your way to a deserted island to have the most amazing lunch you will ever have? It happened. And Its on this channel. Subscribe for more great memories from your excursion / sail / day trip / tour from St. Martin / St. Maarten!

Hi, what would you like to know about this attraction? How far do you anchor from the Beach? Coming on an MSC cruise this summer. My younger one isn't a fantastic swimmer and we want to go on the boat and hang on the beach.

I am horrible with that kind of stuff, but I am guessing 40 feet. It sat 40-50 people comfortably.

In our case it was Mullet beach but be advised that the snorkeling site and the beach may change due to conditions.
