Shore Excursion: Private Sightseeing Tour of St Maarten

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Your well-informed guides will take you on an adventure of a lifetime. Your tour starts at the cruise terminal and you will be driven to an exotic iguana site where you get to feed these cute little reptiles. A stop at the French and Dutch border gives you a quick lesson in French and Dutch culture and St. Maarten's rich heritage. After basking in St. Martin/St. Maarten’s history, it’s time for some sun and sand.

    You can choose between beach time or taking the ferry to Pineal Island ($12 ferry cost not included). After you’ve sunbathed and swam for a while, you will be escorted to the French capital, Marigot, to an open market. This is where you get to sample some of the tastiest cuisines on the planet. Tummies full and hearts glad, you can either head out to plane gaze on Maho Beach or head to another beach. Don't forget to be prepared to be amazed! Then to Harold Jack Hill, which overlooks Great Bay for some more sightseeing and photography moments. The fun is not over yet. You'll head next to Philipsburg, the Dutch side of St. Maarten, to do a little shopping. Eventually you will be returned back to your cruise ship.

    We never exchanged currency at any of our 5 ports of call. Credit cards weren't a problem either.
