St. Maarten: Americas Cup Sailboat Racing with Transfer to Airport
Experience the thrill of racing multi-million dollar America’s Cup Race sailboats in the warm blue waters and brisk trade winds of St. Maarten. Previous sailing experience is not necessary for this excursion, which is one of the highest rated in the Caribbean. You will depart directly from your yacht, where after a briefing you will take a 10-minute tender ride out to your allocated sailboat. Either Dennis Conner’s America’s Cup winning Stars & Stripes, Canada II, or True North are yours for this once-in-a-lifetime adventure. The expert crew will show you exactly what to do if you want to take a “crew member’s” position. Then it’s off to the racecourse – grind a winch – trim a sail – punch a stopwatch, or just sit back, relax and enjoy the included refreshments.  After the race enjoy a victory rum punch party and browse through the museum souvenir boutique before transfer to the airport.

Please note:  Wear suitable footwear for the sailboat. This event is weather/wind dependent.

St. Maarten: Island Tour with Transfer to Airport
The best way to experience 80 different cultures in one day is to take the “Saint-Martin/Saint-Maarten Island Tour.” You will depart from Philipsburg and head to Oyster Pond, a charming little locale with a picturesque marina on the French side of the island.  From there, following Coralita Road, along the coast, you will stop at a lookout point from where you can see St. Barth and Tintamare Island. You will continue past famous Orient Beach, well known for its clothing optional beach, past Grand Case, the Culinary Capitol of the Caribbean, on your way to Marigot, capitol of the French side. Marigot is best known for its seaside, open-air market, where you can find truly charming souvenirs of your Caribbean vacation. If you are “shopped out”, try one of the French cafés right next door, for a café au lait with a croissant.  Upon leaving Marigot, you will make one more photo stop on Cay Hill, from where you have a wonderful view over Simpson Bay Lagoon.  Your last stop will be Philipsburg, capitol of the Dutch side, best known for its jewelry-, electronics-, and high end clothing stores. On the Boardwalk you will find quaint restaurants for a quick bite to eat before your flight and an excellent photo opportunity of your yacht lying in Philipsburg Harbor. From there, you will be taken straight to Princess Juliana International Airport for your flight home.

Please note: Wear comfortable walking shoes.
