Spend a day experiencing the beauty of the untouched white sandy beaches and stunning snorkeling areas that St Barts has to offer! Explore the island at your own leisure, enjoying the relaxed atmosphere and gorgeous surroundings. Although small, this island has a lot to offer!
St Barts is known as the Jewel of the Caribbean and you'll find out why when you sail there from St Maarten. You'll have free time to explore St Barts independently, take a guided tour, go shopping or just relax on one of the island's pristine beaches.

St Barts is just a 45-minute sail from St Maarten's Pelican Marina. Departing Simpson Bay, you'll arrive in Gustavia Harbor, the hub of activity in St Barts. Sidewalk cafes offer crepes and croissants for breakfast, car rentals meet the boat, the taxi stand is a few feet away, and boutiques are open for business.

The exceptional island of St Barts has white sandy beaches, great snorkeling locations, great restaurants and a unique shell museum. It's a day guaranteed to entertain, crammed with sights and delights!

Enjoy lunch at a local burger shack, or go for fine dining at one of the exclusive beachside hotels. Many of the shops in Gustavia may close over the lunchtime period, so it's recommended to go shopping in the morning.

Taxi island tours cost around US$12 per person, or privately for around US$50 for two. Check-in for the boat is at 3:45pm for the 4:00pm departure. Arrive back to Pelican Marina at approximately 4:45pm.

There is a free shuttle to Pelican Marina, Tuesday through Friday only, from the following hotels:
Sonesta Maho
Royal Islander / La Terasse
Divi Little Bay

Beautiful island, very glad we took the ferry

Reviewed by: Anne Marie K, June 2016

Even though the swells were high on the way over to St. Barts, it didn't matter cause the staff was great and the views were wonderful. We sailed on time to and from St. Barts. The process went smoothly for boarding in St. Maarten and St. Barts. We loved St. Barts and would recommend using Viator in the future to those wanting to book side trips on vacation.
