St. Maarten Excursions - Jan 31, 2023
A Private Island Bus Tour **SOLD OUT**
CPC is offering a 5-hour island tour in a comfortable, air conditioned bus. The island of St. Martin/St. Maarten has two sides and many names. We are docking near Philipsburg, the capital of the Dutch side. Our bus driver will pick us up near the cruise ship and take us on a tour of both sides of the island.
Highlights of the tour will include:
A 30-minute stop at Orient Beach – you will have about 30 minutes free time to walk along the beautiful sand, take a quick swim, or buy a drink and relax at one of the many restaurant/bars along the water.
Free time in Marigot – Marigot is the capital of the French side and is famous for its bakeries. You will have about an hour to buy lunch, shop at the flea market, visit the French pastry shops, or even climb the 90 steps of Fort Louis.
Maho Beach – This is the beach where airplanes fly closely over the heads of tourists. You will have a short time to buy a drink and hopefully see an airplane land.
Simpson Bay – We will drive through this quaint town and see local shops and casinos.
Cole Bay overlook – We will have a brief photo stop here at one of the most scenic sights on the trip.
Amsterdam Cheese and Liquor store – If time permits, we will stop in Philipsburg on the way back so you can sample various Dutch cheeses and wines and buy souvenirs.
