Daily Ocean Exhilarating Excursions
Get ready to explore the ocean like never before. There are several exciting ways and options to explore the water world with the various daily ocean excursions. Take a delightful trip to Orient Bay Beach for skiing, sailing and paragliding. Or take a day’s trip to Tintamarre Island, Creole Rock and Pinel Island all on the same day. Take the fun up a notch with some snorkeling with turtles and tropical fish or enjoy some great lunch on Grand Case. You can experience St. Maarten in the ocean and be engulfed by the exhilarating experience.
St. Maarten / St. Martin is a mecca of tropical fun. Take a boat or speedboat or catamaran beach hopping tour around the island, create your own scent at Tijon, a boutique perfumery, go snorkeling at Creole Rock, sample some locally made rum and try the world’s steepest zipline for an adrenaline boost. Still, without a doubt the greatest thing about St. Martin are the island hopping excursions to the neighboring Anguilla, St. Barts and Saba islands, each with a distinctive charm.
The best time to visit St. Martin and St. Maarten is May and June or between November and mid-December. These select weeks are times when hotels advertise their best rates. The island’s weather is pleasant year-round, but these are times when rain showers are less likely. Summer and early fall are not good for a vacation; many hotels close in this offseason and there’s a chance of hurricanes. Also avoid visiting in winter and early spring (mid-December to April) if you can. That’s when St. Martin and St. Maarten milks its wealthy vacationers.
