Default www.shoretrips.com anyone used them?

I just booked a Jet Ski rental with www.shoretrips.com for an excursion in St. Maartin. Has anyone used them before. The prices I paid seemed very reasonable, and they gave directions on how to take the taxi to the beach they are located on. Any input would be great good or bad.

I've used them and had very good luck. In fact, I'll be booking at least one excursion through them on my September cruise.

Well I get to confused with all the choices. I am leaning toward doing a whale watching for Juneau, and a float in Kechikan. and not sure in Skagway. Which whall watching is the most reasonable for the price? and which float is? I want to see glaciers and whales. Cost is important, because DH won't want to spend alot. In Juneau we don't dock til 2pm and then depart at 10pm. any help will be greatly appreciated.

What is your cruise itinerary? Honestly I cant help you much unless you are on one of the boats that comes into Seward or Whittier. I know if you come to Seward, that is the place to go whale watching, but thats kind of a hit or miss thing... you may see whales, you may not. Another option is to go on a Glacer cruise too. I think now they have ranges that are only a few hours that see 7 glaciers or a full day trip up to 21 glaciers. If you come into Seward or Whittier once again, a day of fishing is always reccomended. Every summer my wife and I go out on a Halibit charter, and come back with enough halibit to stuff our freezer for a few months.

Sorry I cant help you with the ports you are visiting. The ones you will be at, Juneau, Skagway, and Ketican (sp) are all very interesting places. I have been to all three as a kid going to swim meets as a kid. Hope you have a great cruise, and surely concider a cruise from Vancouver, to Whittier so you can see south central Alaska. Its truely a lifetime memory. Many people have come here to visit and have never gone back home.

Yes I hear it is beautiful. I have a cousin in Craig (Princess Edward Island). We also have a Dr who lived up there for a time and as soon as his wife past away he is gone, even before she is buried. I just can't wait

My parents met each other in Craig back in the mid-late 70s. My mom was a teacher at the high school and my dad worked as an electrician. Haha small world.
