    What to Expect
    A top-to-bottom tour with two exciting experiences in one excursion.  Take in the amazing views as you glide to the top of St. Maarten’s highest mountain on the Sky Explorer. Then hop back on the Sky Explorer to the Schooner Ride where you’ll surf down the mountain in an inner tube.

     

    You will be guided to the plantation house, built in the 1700s, to learn the powerful story of Trace Wilson, born into slavery on the estate in 1818 and his descendant Emilio Wilson who purchased the property to educate current and future generations about the conditions of plantation life as well as the customs, traditions and history of St. Maarten, “The Friendly Island.”

     

    Embark the Sky Explorer for the approximately 25-minute ride to the top of Sentry Hill, St. Maarten’s highest elevation at 1,125 feet. A series of platforms encircle the mountaintop showcasing 360-degree views of the whole island including vistas of neighboring islands Saba, St. Eustatius, St. Barts and Anguilla.

     

    To complete your top-to-bottom ride, the Sky Explorer will take you to the Schooner Ride where you’ll surf down the mountain in an inner tube through the curves and straightaways of a specially designed track.

     

    After your fun-filled adventure, select your favorite photo and video then enjoy exploring the Estate and sampling St. Maarten delicacies, snacks and beverages at the restaurant.

    Although the views from the top were absolutely amazing, I thought this was a little pricey for what you got. You’re basically paying for a chair lift to the top of the mountain. Plus the 2 tube rides, which each lasted less than a minute....More

    I didn’t count but I’d say the equivalent of three flights of stairs.
