The SNUBA Vessel

Good day fans. Can you spare 5 minutes of your time?

After working on restoring our boat we are now fully operational again. The last month was a great month. The visibility in the bay is improving every day and we are super happy to be back in the water.

Thank you all for maintaining your support for us over the last 5 months. They were difficult and although we still feel the aftermath from the two devastating hurricanes, we are back.

For everyone who would like to help us a bit further or who would simply like to help us out a bit, please remember that both direct feedback as well as great reviews on several media go a long, very long, way.

It is a Multiple Cruise Ship Day

I Decided to investigate the visibility with my drone this morning, so after the pre flight checks, sent the Mavic into the sky and headed out to oversee Great Bay and the harbor.

Today we seem to have three cruise ships in of which  two Royal Caribbean with which we have contracts. And although we only have a few guests this afternoon, it is really good to see this all happening again.

The Christmas Winds, as the locals call them, are blowing vastly. Three weeks late for Christmas of course, but well… everything is late in Sint Maarten, so no surprise there.

As you might be able to see in the pictures, the visibility is clearing up nicely now, I can see big patches of the bottom, even from a height of almost 200ft / 60mtr up in the air.

There is not much going on yet in Sint Maartens’ capital, Philipsburg. Everybody is still waking up, drinking their coffee or finishing their preparations. Soon, it will be one of the busier days since September 4th, 2017. I live a ten minute walk from Philipsburg, but it could take over 20 minutes by car when this all starts happening. amazing!

Looking forward to a good day with nice guests and dives.

New galleries with pictures will be processed, posted and announced later today.

See you all one day for your SNUBA Experience with us in Sint Maarten, Caribbean.
