St Maarten Shore Excursion: Beaches and Shopping in Marigot
From US$45.00
Explore Oyster Bay, Orient Beach and Maho Beach on during this 6-hour tour from St Maarten. With a local guide, sightsee on both the French and Dutch sides of the island. Stroll through the town of Marigot, the capital of the French side of the island, visiting the boutiques and galleries that line the streets. A complimentary drink and round-trip transportation from the cruise port is included.
What to Expect
Your first stop of the day will be at a location overlooking Oyster Bay. Next you will get to meet Calvin the Sea Urchin Man and some of his watery friends. On to Orient Beach for 2 hours of sunshine, sand, and sea. Sit back and enjoy the sun and ocean breeze or take a refreshing dip in the crystal clear waters.

After Orient Beach, head to the town of Marigot for an hour of shopping. While in Marigot, do not forget to visit the different bars, restaurants, shops, local flea market and Sarafina's! for those fabulous French Pastries.

Next up is the world famous Maho Beach. Stand on the beach as some of the largest commercial aircraft come in for a landing just feet away right over your head! Plus, hang on for a jet blast as they take off.

With the excitement of Maho Beach behind you, your next stop will be Cole Bay Hill overlooking Simpson Beach and Indigo Bay, an opportunity for a beautiful photo. Then up to 'The Hill', where you will find great views of Phillipsburg. With a wonderful day on the island behind, you have a final choice, to be dropped off in Phillipsburg or continue on to the cruise dock for departure. And remember a complimentary drink will be offered to you on stops!

Well Worth It

We were privileged to have a great tour guide Steven, and he took us around the entire island. The devastation on the East side from Hurricane Irma was catastrophic, and so much destruction remained for us to see 8 months later. He was extremely knowledgeable...More

What a nice day off the cruiseship

We were lucky we were the only party in the tour that day. Our driver Paul showed us around the whole island, answered all our questions and was just a pleasure to be with. Would prefer this tour over a tour with the big busses...More
