Default excursions any ideas?

We are cruising June 1 Eastern Caribbean with Freedom of the Seas - RC. What are some web sites to book excursions other than using RC for better prices? Have 2 boys 18 and 15 - love to snorkel and go to great beaches. Any recommendations on excursions to st. Thomas, St. maarten, and san juan?

When I tried booking a third party shore excursion many years ago they told me they are not really interested in just doing small groups of three or four.

That being said - in St Thomas you can easily get a cab to Coral World for $8 per person and on the beach nearby rent snorkle equipment. Or if you pay to enter Coral World you can even go snuba diving for a price that is probably cheaper than the ship.

do a google on St Thomas Coral World.

In St. Maarten, I bet your bunch would love doing the America's Cup Regatta, great fun and a learning expierence. I believe you have to book that through the ship, but well worth the $.

From St Thomas for a beach day try the ferry to St Johns and Trunk Bay. On St Martin, if you do a day trip to St Barts (or even on some beaches on St Martin) be advised that women go topless (last time there some families with teenage boys were uncomfortable with that situation). If you stay on St Martin try to visit both parts of the island-French and Dutch.

Default Eastern Caribbean shore Excursions

check out St Thomas Cruise Excursions and St Maarten Cruise Excursions I don't know if they offer tours in San Juan but they might.

We did the catamaran sail and snorkel to St John, amazing
In St Maarten we did the Power catamaran tour, so much fun
