St. Maarten Excursions - Jan 25, 2020
A Private Island Bus Tour **SOLD OUT TAKING WAITLIST ONLY **
CPC is offering a 5-hour island tour on 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.
Tour price: $55 per person. This tour will fill up quickly and is limited to 45 persons so sign up immediately to avoid getting shut out.
Note: This tour is not suitable for people with mobility issues or anyone with a wheelchair or scooter. The itinerary is subject to change based on traffic and time constraints.

A Private Charter Catamaran **SOLD OUT TAKING WAITLIST ONLY **
Climb aboard this luxury 62-foot catamaran that has everything you could ask for from a sea craft. Relax on the covered deck, catch some rays on the trampoline, or head up-top to the flybridge for some fantastic Caribbean views. Your captain limits the number of guests to just 22 to ensure room and comfort for all.
As we cruise to our first stop, we'll pass Maho Bay, well known for watching low-flying planes taking off and landing at Princess Juliana Airport, home to the shortest runway for 747's in the world.
We arrive at Long Beach (Baie Longue) on the French side of the island, just beside the famous La Samana resort. The beach is gorgeous and the water such an indescribably beautiful shade of turquoise that you'll never want to leave. While the captain and first mate prepare your gourmet lunch right on board using the freshest ingredients, feel free to work on your backstroke, try paddleboarding, discover the sea life just beneath the boat or noodle around with a noodle. You can even head towards the beach to gather shells or rent a water toy.
Who knew having so much fun could work up such as appetite? Back on board, the refreshing waters will be replaced by the aroma of a lavish lunch. From ribs to paella, and blackened fish to specialty salads, we guarantee you'll be in culinary heaven.
Once lunch is finished, we'll hoist anchor and set off for Mullet Bay. If you're so inclined, take one last dip in the crystal clear water or (more likely) relax and enjoy another drink from the open bar before cruising back to town.
