Description


  • Round trip transportation from your St. Maarten and St. Martin cruise ship terminal!
  • Air-conditioned, fully licensed and insured transportation!
  • English speaking certified guides!
  • Enjoy Maho Beach plane spotting!
  • Stop at Orient Beach!
  • See both sides of the island - French and Dutch!

Note that due to reconstruction, Orient Beach is temporarily not available. Grand Case Beach is being substituted.

This St. Maarten Island Sightseeing and Highlights with Beach and Shopping Excursion is available from both Philipsburg (St. Maarten) and Marigot (St. Martin) cruise ports.

This small island has two names and is divided into two countries - French (St. Maarten) and Dutch (Sint Martin) sharing it equally. See some of the island's most famous sights including beautiful beaches, Maho Beach Plane Spotting, Orient Beach, Oyster Pond, and still have time for shopping!

Your excursion will start just a few minutes by walk from your pier where your guide will meet you and get you going. Your transportation will take you sightseeing on the way to your first stop at the French/Dutch border. You will be able to be in 2 countries at the same time with one foot in St. Maarten and the other in Saint Martin!

You will move on to the overlook at Oyster Pond where you will have great views of the neighboring island - St. Barts. Do not forget your camera! You will continue on to Orient Bay where you can take a dip in the turquoise blue Caribbean water there. You will also find a variety of restaurants and bars as well as optional water activities for an additional cost - jet skis, parasailing, etc. along with lounge chairs, etc.

The French capital city of Marigot is the next stop where you will have time for shopping at the open air market. Sunset Beach Bar on Maho Beach is where your mind-blowing plane spotting stop will be. The St. Maarten airport lies just at the edge of the water and beach where it seems like the planes are landing right on the sand and it is really a show!

The gorgeous view from Cayhill, overlooking Simpson Bay Marina and Great Bay for great sights of Philipsburg and the harbor are next. Your guide will be giving you lots of local information as well as the background and history of the island before taking you back to the meeting spot just 2-3 minute walk from your cruise terminal.

We had a great time on this tour. The guide, John, altered the tour a bit to fit our time constraints. He was very accommodating. Much better than the tours offered through the cruise line and your money all goes to support locals. Recommend stopping for a ham and cheese croissant from the bakery in Marigot. One of the best sandwiches I\'ve ever had!

Firstly, the tour guide David was fantastic. You see the entire island with lots of info. Very funny, polite informative, everything you want in a tour. Improvements: we went to a very expensive beach on the French side, had to rent chairs, beach was so so but there 90 minutes. Food was in euro and tres expensive !! Makes you wonder where money is going and why you stay there so long...hard to locate to start your tour as well. Later in the day went to maho beach...great bats, music, beach and the planes flying over...had 40 minutes could have stayed all day !! The worst: booked with Amex on line...brought cash, Amex card, sea pass cards. They had to swipe credit card but said they don\'t take Amex to pay balance of tour (only take deposit on line)...wanted me to run back to ship to get another credit card. Made no sense you take deposit with Amex but couldn\'t pay balance with it. Paid cash which left myself short...had no choice or go all the way back to shop.

The tour meeting spot was easy to find based on the directions on the ticket. We had “Milkman” for our tour guide. He was knowledgeable about the island, fun to talk with, and had complimentary water, Coca-Cola, and rum punch. The tour says 4.5 hours but ours lasted about 6 hours with all the stops; but we got back to the port with plenty of time to spare. The tour bus was clean, comfortable, and had good air conditioning. The beach stop for swimming was nice but you have to rent the chairs which is pricey so plan on a little extra cash if you need a chair. I would highly recommend this tour if you want to see the whole island, learn some history, and hit the major spots (i.e. major beach).

At first it was a bit tricky as nobody showed up and then he wanted to cancel the tour but then finally as the tour started it was great. John told us a lot of things and he was a nice guy. He was also very friendly to our child.

Super nice tour of the Island, Sexy, our guide was knowledgeable and informative. He stopped for great views, we met with a friend of his who showed us sea stars, urchins, and conchs. Also had a stop to see iguanas, and we saw them! (of course waiting for tips) The stop at the beach was great but we were not told that it would cost us an extra 25$ for the chairs, we had an hour, just wanted to get in the water but did't have a choice :( The shopping was exactly what we wanted. And good refreshments were served in the bus.

Hassle free booking and tour meeting place was easy to find when we arrived in port. Air conditioned vehicle. Our guide, Fleming was very knowledgeable with facts about the Island. Orient beach was very beautiful and relaxing. Moho Beach was amazing with the planes flying overhead. I wished we had a little more time there though. Overall great tour for the money and plenty of refreshments soda, water and rum included in the price. St Maarten is a beautiful island!

Fun excursion. Orient Bay Beach is beautiful and clean. Maho beach was an unforgettable experience to watch planes so close to you. The plane takeoff was such an adrenaline rush!! Highly recommended. the driver "mailman" was an awesome tour guide, and the complimentary drinks were good as well. note: time pick-up should be updated seeing as we were told 7:30 and in reality, the actual excursion time ended up being at 9 am, so we got up really early to sit around for two hours on the pier.

We loved this tour. The beaches are the best we saw on the whole cruise. The highlight is the Maho Beach plane landings that we had heard about and seen on youtube. Wow, they really DO come in that low to the ground! We got some great food at Maho too. Bring your cameras!!! Actually the whole day was fun! WE loved the guide and the funky bus and music. The island is so clean. We spend just the right amount of time shopping and got some great deals.

This was a fun, fun tour and a lot less expensive than the others. We had a dilemma as we wanted some beach time while we were in port. This allowed us to see all of the beautiful sights and learn some new things without using all of the time we had in port. We got to see the beach and extraordinary parts of the island. Our photos looks like they came from a professional. Forgot to mention shopping. That was pretty great too, got some deals.

Best Way to See the Island, Shop and Enjoy the Beach

This was my first time to St. Martin. I signed up on this excursion by reading the reviews. I was not disappointed. Our driver, the Milkman, was very knowledgeable about the island, he stop are several great places to take pictures. I did feel we needed more time to shop, felt only an hour was not enough time. We spent most of that time in line at the French bakery and gave little time to really walk around in the shops. The beach time at Orient was relaxing but bring extra money to rent a chair. Beach was clean and the water was clean. Bring your snorkel equipment, you will have a good reef to use it just off the shore. The port a potty was locked and they had a homemade changing room to use. I suggest you change before going to the beach. A bit disappointed at the beach near the airport, we were only given 15 minutes to try and get a picture. I was more worried about not missing the tour bus and was not about to enjoy the couple of planes that landed while we were at the beach. It also was very crowded there. I wanted to buy a shirt but never located the store and then the time thing came into play. Soda, water, beer and homemade rum was included with the price of the ticket. Well worth the price.

You have probably heard about Maho Beach in St. Maarten where the planes appear to be landing right on the beach. Very cool to see it in person. Our tour took us all around the island and we got to see many of the important highlights and things to do. Shopping is shopping and not a big deal for me.
