So nice we did it twice We chartered a catamaran from st Martin to Anguilla and had the best day with Captain Garin and Tess. The service was amazing and food and drinks were excellent. The crew had everything we wanted available and were so accommodating that we booked a second trip with them later in our trip to explore st Martin I cannot recommend them enough. We were with 3 families and kids 2-10 and everyone had the best time

À faire absolument, excitante experience. Découverte de l’île de St Martin sublimée par l’accueil et la qualité de la prestation proposée. Les langoustes au bbq sont un must. Une journée passée trop vite, nous reviendrons.

Best Day Ever!! What a great day we had on the boat and in the water. Our crew Aggie and Captain Garin were absolutely wonderful. Pyratz Gourmet Sailing and crew on board know how to welcome and entertain their guests. Food and cocktails were amazing. Captain Garin went above and beyond and swam appetizers out to us as we were lounging on the floating mat. We were a group of 8 and every one of us were blown away by the hospitality shown us from the time we arrived at the marina until our cruise ended. This was definitely one of the highlights of our week in St. Martin. Would highly recommend this to anyone looking for a day on the water.

The most Romantic and best Sunset Dinner Cruise Ever in St Martin All I can start with is THE BEST!!!I planned our 10th year anniversary trip to St Martin and wanted to do a proposal style/Vow Renewal. I chose Pyratz to do this with a 4 hour sunset dinner cruise with my wife. I don't have enough words to describe this experience. Starting from Allison who communicated via WhatsApp and collected every detail about the way I wanted to plan this, the surprise, the dinner, the cake (which was ordered at a bakery and brought on board). Next was Stephane who was our photographer but helped me plan every moment of the proposal surprise, did a walk through of the boat ahead of time, to pick the spot where I should pop the question, and arranged the location and position of the boat for the sunset to fall on us. Then finally comes the best, Captain Garin and First Mate Tess who were such fun people who serve up an amazing dinner and the best drinks on board. They truly blend in and make your event so fun! What was amazing to see is how this team works together as a team and helps each other's tasks on the boat. They helped me connect to the boat's bluetooth and allowed me to play my own playlist which was awesome. I don't think there could have been a better team to make our moment so romantic, so special, so comfortable, and unforgettable. Lastly, how can I not talk about the boat which was in amazing condition and very clean throughout. I cannot wait to get back to St Martin and hire this team again, would love to try the day trip to Anguilla.

Beautiful trip, fantastic dining, attentive service! What a wonderful day! Captain Garin and First Mate Tess took fantastic care of us from the delicious pastries and fruit that greeted us upon boarding to the grilled pineapple at the end of day. The food was delicious, the beverages kept coming, and the service was very attentive. Our day included a trip to a beach in Anguilla for swimming and snorkeling, as well as Creole Rock for snorkeling, and swimming on Sint Maarten. Garin and Tess took note of what we liked and wanted to see and do. Highly recommend Pyratz for a day in the islands!

Great Luxury Catamaran Trip in SXM Absolutely amazing experience. My husband and I have done many catamaran trips in SXM and this was by far the best experience and worth spending a little more money on. Garin and Tess were amazing and when the seas were way too rough on our original trip, they gave us the opportunity to go on a different day with the full boats consensus which we chose to do so that we could have the best experience. The boat was great with lots of places to be in the sun and also plenty of shaded areas. Also love that the boat was not crowded so it offered a really nice experience. 10/10 highly recommend!

Phenomenal private day charter with Pyratz was the highlight of our trip - by FAR!!! Our day (8:15am-5:15pm) with Pyratz was definitely the highlight of our trip (and the whole trip was amazing so that is saying a lot!). My husband and I shared the private catamaran day trip with a couple friend of ours. This was a bit of a splurge for us but WELL WORTH IT (especially in comparison to what we've spent on 1 hour helicopter rides!). We were pampered all day by both our Captain (Garin) and First Mate (Tess)! They were a great pair (not a couple though – LOL!) Based on our interests, they suggested wonderful stops including Creole Rock, Petit Plage, Happy Bay, Baie Rogue and Long Bay. (They noted that generally they only have time for 3 stops but somehow we were able to fit all 5 stops in comfortably.) Upon boarding, they provided a very tasty continental breakfast and mimosas (or any other cocktail or drink we requested.). We really liked that we were able to "blue-tooth"our own tunes throughout the day. Signature cocktails, wine, beer or any other type of drink you can imagine were offered all day long. Our favorites were the French Kiss (vodka infused with cinnamon and pink pepper, lemon juice, strawberry, soy milk and lemon grass syrup) and the Special Margarita (tequilla, chartreuse, and lime juice, with large jalapeno and cilantro ice cubes. The drink gets spicier as the ice cube melts!) Our first stop was Creole Rock, with spetacular snorkeling. We saw a spotted eagle ray (just gorgeous – black with white polka dots), hawk’s bill sea turtles, lionfish, trumpetfish, queen tigerfish, queen angelfish, long spined sea urchins and French gruntfish among many others. There was also plenty of beautiful coral reef including yellow tube sponge, west Indian sea egg, barrel sponge, common sea fan, and coral reef brain. After a nice swim there (maybe 45 mins?), we were served homemade tortilla chips with three savory dips (smoked paprika hummus, wasabi & lime guacamole, and Mexican corn salsa) on our way to Petit Plage. After a short stop at Petite Place, we headed to Happy Bay for our gourmet lunch that consisted of a starters trilogy (fish terrine cucumber roll with mint yogurt and citrus salsa, green papaya and mango salad with spicy lime vinaigrette and crushed peanuts, and a watermelon and chorizo gazpacho.) Everyone’s favorite was the papaya and mango salad though all were VERY good! This was followed by a seared catch of the day filet (Mahi Mahi for us) with a shaved fennel and pomegranate salad and side of sweet potato mash. (Other options for the main course included Fresh Grilled Lobster, Chicken Supreme or their vegetarian dish - Chickpea Croquetas.) Our friends swam ashore there but we chose to stay on the catamaran and lounge on the trampolines with large bean bags. After lunch we headed to Devil’s Hole/Devil's Arch near Baie Rouge. Garin/Tess dropped anchor and then taxi’ed us as close to Devil’s Hole as possible on the motorized dinghy. (They were excited as they said it was the first time they’d done this.) So much fun!! At our last stop (Long Bay), we enjoyed the delicious dessert - vanilla ice cream with almonds and chocolate sauce served on top of a carmelized apple slice before settling our stomachs with a shot of Gouverneur’s Rhum. As an added bonus, Garin (from South Africa) also provided us with wonderful recommendations for a trip to Africa we are planning to take in a few years. Finally, he made dinner reservations for us at his favorite restaurant – “The Palms” on airport road that night. Before dinner, we had a $1 beer at Happy Hour at the Soggy Dollar (another suggestion of Garin’s.) All of his recommendations for the Palms (the drunken ribs, mushroom chicken and carrot cake) were spectacular!!We can’t say enough good things about the entire Pyratz experience!! The catamaran and its amenities, the gourmet dining and drinks, all of the wonderful stops along the way and especially our hosts - Garin and Tess!! We will definitely return many times; we are planning a 2.5 day trip to Anguilla and St. Barts following our next visit to SXM.

St. Martin at its best Where do I begin? The crew was terrific and attentive without being overbearing. We were made to feel like this was our vessel and not as tourists. When I return to St. Martin, I'll be sure to book another excursion with Capt. G and Aggie.
