Enjoy an adventurous day on your stop in St. Maarten by sightseeing in a Jeep with you behind the wheel. Then have some beach time to enjoy the beautiful waters surrounding the island of St. Maarten.
You'll meet your guide at your St. Maarten cruise ship terminal and be driven to the base camp (10-minute drive) for safety instructions before heading out in your Jeep. If you are planning to drive, please bring a valid driver's license. Please note the jeep is not private and you'll possibly share the vehicle. If you wish to have the vehicle to yourself, you will need to purchase all 4 seats. You can explore the hills and trails of both sides of the island with plenty of stops for photos and take in the sights. Get away from the crowds and experience the island off the beaten path.
You'll see points of interest on both the Dutch and French sides of the island. On the Dutch side, at Cole Bay Hill lookout point you can enjoy panoramic views of its capital, Philipsburg, plus the neighboring islands of Saba, St. Eustatius, and Anguilla. Simpson Bay Lagoon is the largest inland body of water in the Caribbean and the border of the French and Dutch sides of the island run through the middle.
In the capital of the French side, Marigot, you'll have time to shop and explore its colorful markets and exclusive boutiques. You'll drive through Grand Case, known as the Gourmet Capital of the Caribbean, which is filled with restaurants, bars, cafes, and a beautiful beach.
The last stop is at Great Bay, where the white-sandy beach offers swimming, snorkeling, and surfing, plus food vendors all under swaying palm trees. You'll have a stop here (approximately 1 hour) to relax, take a break to swim, or just enjoy some beach time before heading back to your ship.
At the end of your beach stop, you'll be returned to your St. Maarten cruise terminal.
Note: Round-trip transportation is NOT included. It is pre-arranged and has an additional cost of $10.00USD per person round-trip to be paid on-site directly to the local operator.
