FAQ
If you can't find the answer to your question in the list below, please feel free to contact us.
 

What should I bring with me?

Bring sunscreen, a hat, a towel, a sweater for the return trip, some extra cash for drinks ashore, gift purchases from the on board boutique and crew gratuities. Don't forget your passport, your camera and a big smile!
 

Is there any shade on board?

All three boats are designed for your comfort and safety and have ample shaded seating areas.
 

What do you sell in the on board boutique?

Authentic Scoobi crew t-shirts in three different styles: long sleeve (30‚¬), short sleeve (20‚¬) and ladies sun-tops (20‚¬). All made from good quality, pre-shrunk cotton - stylish, practical and a great reminder of a fantastic day out. Check out our boutique page.
Scoobi caps (20‚¬) - good protection from the Caribbean sun.
Waterproof cameras (re-usable) - ideal for snorkeling or that unforgettable moment when dad decides to join the kids on the water slide.
 

What does open bar' mean?

Drinks on board are complimentary. We offer a range of soft drinks: coke, diet coke, sprite, club soda, tonic, fruit juice, wine (red, rosé and white), beer, spirits (rum, vodka, gin) and of course our specialities: Scoobi fruit or rum punch. You are our guests during your stay on board and we want you to relax and enjoy your time with us. Your safety remains our prime concern, however, and we do not encourage excessive drinking. The Captain reserves the right to stop serving alcohol at any time.
Please note that drinks ashore are not included in the day charter rate and due to local licensing and customs laws, guests are not permitted to take drinks from the boat ashore.
 

I'm worried about getting seasick. What do you recommend?

Catamarans are much more stable than monohulls. On our large, comfortable boats seasickness is rarely a problem, but if you are susceptible, there are certain precautions you can take:
• Eat breakfast as normal, don't sail on an empty stomach - local croissants are ideal!
• Avoid fruit juice, the citric acid can upset your stomach.
• Don't read or focus on puzzles such as crosswords or sudoko - look around and enjoy the scenery! Focusing on a fixed point on the horizon helps your brain cope with the unaccustomed movement.
• Stay out in the fresh air, avoid going inside.
• Chat to the Captain. All those old sea-dog' tales will help take your mind off it!
• Ginger (dry or powdered) is a good preventative. Otherwise, a small glass of flat' coke, dry bread or crackers are all ideal if you do feel queasy. Or try Cocculine from the homeopath shelf in your pharmacy.
• If you feel you may need anti seasickness medication, visit the pharmacy the day before your trip for advice. Most preparations need to be taken an hour or so before coming on board.
• Tell the crew. They have a lot of experience and can advise you. Don't be embarrassed!
 

Should I tip the crew?

Service is not included, however, crew gratuities are at your discretion. If you would like to show your appreciation, 10 - 15% (as in restaurants and other service activities) is a generally accepted guideline.
 

Safety on board

The crew are professional, experienced and trained to deal with all on board situations. All boats meet stringent European safety standards for operation in international waters. Adult and children lifevests are carried. If you have any worries, speak to the crew.
 

What is a local buffet' meal?

Lunch is provided on all full day trips, either on board or ashore. Ashore choose from grilled chicken, pork ribs, creole rice, coleslaw, salad .... Have a look at our typical menus under your chosen destination.
 

Special meals

We will do our best to meet your dietary requirements. Please notify us in advance of your trip.
 

Personal belongings and valuables

There is storage space on each boat for personal belongings. The crew will advise you on the best place to store your bags. Please remember, however, that the crew is not responsible for any loss or damage to your belongings, on board, ashore or during transfer between the boat and shore.
 

Cameras on board

We have a dry bag' for small items during tender transfers between the boat and shore. Please note that we can not recharge cameras, phones etc and do not sell batteries on board. Make sure to charge your electronic goods before you come on board. The crew is not responsible for any loss or damage.
 

Fresh water on board

Water is a precious commodity on St Martin, especially so on board a boat! Please use the water in the restrooms sparingly and note that this water is not drinking quality. Bottled water is freely available.
 

What is your policy on children on board?

Children love the adventure of a day out at sea: swimming, snorkeling and of course the water slide! We want all our guests to have a fantastic day with us. We carry children's life vests and have junior sized snorkeling equipment available. There is no minimum age' for babies, but pediatricians recommend infants be at least 3 months old. Parents remain responsible for the supervision of their children at all times.
 

What is the waterslide?

Simply the best way to get into the water! Unique in St Martin, ScoobiTOO has a toboggan, fun, easy access to the tropical blue waters for all the family. Great photo opportunities for kids and grandpas!
 

Are there restrooms on board?

All our boats have restroom facilities. Marine toilets operate slightly differently from those ashore. Instructions are posted, any questions - ask the crew!
