For such a small island, St. Martin sure has a lot going on. Divided into two countries, France and the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the island is multicultural and incredibly diverse. Located in the Caribbean just east of Puerto Rico, this island has become known as a popular destination for both the weather and the available St. Martin Excursions and activities. With lush rainforests, phenomenal beaches, and historical architecture you will discover that our St. Martin Shore Excursions can help you to experience the best this lovely island has to offer such as our St. Maarten and St. Martin Best of Island Highlights Excursion and our St Maarten Simpson Bay Kayak and Pelican Bay Reef Snorkel Excursion.
St. Martin has been divided since 1648 and there is colorful folklore according to how the island was divided. Supposedly a French man and a Dutch man were chosen to each walk through the island to a point when they met and that would be the line between the countries. However, as the story goes, the Dutch blamed the French saying their man ran instead of walked, and the French blame the Dutch because he was drinking Dutch beer. Whatever the facts may be, there is nothing but friendliness between the two now and English is widely spoken in both.
You will discover that there are fantastic beaches and an abundance of popular water sports available through our St. Martin Excursions on St. Martin such as our St. Maarten Beach Bum Combo to Orient and Maho Beaches and our St. Maarten SNUBA Diving Excursion. We can also take you shopping, or on a hike in the countryside as in our St Maarten Cross the Border Island Hike Excursion. St. Martin has constant warm tropical breezes and lovely weather so outdoor activities and cruise excursions are often favored, check our St. Maarten Deluxe Sailing Boat Excursion or our St. Maarten Power Catamaran Coral Reef and Shipwreck Snorkel Excursion. But, for those who prefer to sightsee, you can do so in air-conditioned comfort while a guide entertains you with more history and local information, check our St. Maarten Open Air Double Decker Sightseeing Bus Excursion.
