What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Blue Bubbles Sports & Tours, Front Street 153 Great Bay, Philipsburg St Martin / St Maarten

"The Dive Shop" is the venue, where the Jeep portion of the tour departs from and ends at. It is located in Front Street, downtown Philipsburg, in between the Sea Palace Hotel and the Walter Plantz Square & Fountains.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Maho Beach, Beacon Hill Road, Maho St Martin / St Maarten

A "MUST SEE & EXPERIENCE" : the spectacular overhead jet landings at popular Airport Beach !

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Marigot Market, Marigot Harbour, Marigot 97150 St Martin / St Maarten

Marigot's waterfront is host to a colorful souvenir market. Browse through the items on sale at this cluster of stands : local art & jewelry, spices, hot sauces, rum, beach wear & accessories, gift ideas, and much more. The remains of historic Fort St. Louis are located on the adjacent hill top.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Rotary Lookout Point, rue de Coralita Collectivity of Saint Martin Guadeloupe, 97150 St Martin / St Maarten

Enjoy the peaceful scenery at this section of French St. Martin's extensive Nature Reserve. The shallow Lucas Bay/Coralita waters are perfect to cool off your traveling feet. This is not a venue for swimming.

Duration: 20 minutes

Pass By: Oyster Pond St Martin / St Maarten

This community is located on your route from the Lucas Bay/Coralita area back to Philipsburg. This part French/part Dutch territory is mainly a residential area, with a few smaller guest accommodations, and a marina. From the hill side you're overlooking 2 beach front resorts : one along the Oyster Bay coast and one in neighboring Dawn Beach. A simple sign on the side of the road is the only border marker. No border formalities !

Stop At: Great Bay Beach, Philipsburg St Martin / St Maarten

The 3 hours of touring the island by Jeep is followed by a full hour of beach time in beautiful Great Bay, within view of your ship. 3/4 of this 2-mile-long beach is lined with the Boardwalk. This section of the beach tends to be livelier, with a multitude of beach bars, restaurants and boutiques. The other (unpaved) stretch is quiet and practically undeveloped. Awesome shopping opportunities are nearby, in Front Street, Back Street, and Old Street. You'll also find many great photo ops within walking distance, e.g. the authentic Creole homes with their typical Gingerbread trims.

Duration: 1 hour

Fantastic tour with a great tour guide. Personalized tour- not commercial at all. You go around both sides of the island and stop for plenty of experiences. Picked up right at cruise terminal and offers shuttle back. Vehicles new and all clean. Highly recommend.

Tour guide drives this, as he knows exactly where he is going and narrates.

Two in the front, and as long as it is small children, you can hold 3, with a squeeze.
