This private tour has a focus on the beach and some shopping or strolling through town. You'll have the opportunity to see some nice panoramic viewpoints, which are great for family photos, and you'll even get to meet Calvin the Sea Urchin Man, with some of his watery friends. At Orient Beach, you can sit back and enjoy the sunshine, sand, the ocean breeze, or take a dip in the crystal clear water.
We'll make a stop in Marigot, the French capital which is great for shopping or just strolling through town at your own leisure. The tour also includes a drive to Airport beach where we can visit the Sunset Beach Bar & Grill and you can be blown away by the jet blast at Maho Beach which ends where the runway of St. Maarten's International Airport begins. At Maho you can stand on the beach and watch as some of the largest commercial aircraft come in for a landing, the planes will be just feet over your head! and if that is not enough excitement, hang on for a jet blast as they take off.
