Double Rider: $160.00
Begin this incredible St. Maarten excursion with a safety orientation, where you will be assigned an ATV and provided with a helmet. First-time riders and beginners are more than welcome! Your ATV group will set off to explore the backroads of the island. Fresh air, mountains, beaches, and crowd-less vistas await making for a wonderful way to see the best sights.
Leave the pier area in Philipsburg via Oyster Pond and Quartier d'Orleans to the popular Orient Bay in French Saint-Martin for your first beach stop. This picturesque destination offers a white sand beach where you have the chance to jump off your ATV and head straight into the refreshing clear waters, wash off the road dust and feel thoroughly invigorated. Showers and restrooms are available at the Beach Club. Remember, Orient Beach is a clothing optional beach.
Next at Grand Case, the gourmet capital of the Caribbean, you will have your lunch (at your own expense). Here you will also have time for some window browsing and shopping. Nestled in a northern crook on the French side of Saint Martin, Grand Case is beloved by tourists and locals alike. Boating, snorkeling, and diving are some of the endless ways to explore the aquamarine waters you will find here.
Continue to Marigot, the capital of French Saint-Martin, with its fashionable boutiques. Marigot is an appealing spot with brightly colored houses, a scattering of restaurants and lively produce and crafts markets.
Up next you will see Sunset Beach/Maho, St. Maarten's #1 beach, with spectacular overhead jet landings. Be blown away by the jet blast at Maho Beach, the beach ends where the runway of St. Maarten's International Airport begins. Stand on the beach as some of the largest commercial aircraft come in for a landing, the planes will be just feet over your head!
Travel on to Cole Bay Hill with breathtaking scenery and great photo chances before you are dropped off at Philipsburg Cruise Terminal, where you will have the option of returning back to your ship (a 15 minute walk) or exploring the capital on your own.
Please Note: All ATVs have automatic transmissions.

My family and I did this excursion in February. We had 3 ATV drivers and 3 passengers. We were led all around the island very safely. We also made a stop at Sunset Beach where the airplanes come in for a landing just above the beach. It was quite a sight. We enjoyed this excursion very much.

We absolutely LOVED this excursion! Never having driven a quad, I ventured out of my comfort zone and booked two for me and my husband. Great move! We drove all over the island for 3+ hours, seeing beautiful landscape. We were supposed to stop more often for pictures, but a fire on the French side did not allow for that. Our tour guides readjusted, though, making the excursion well-worth the price. While all of the guides were super friendly and helpful, we were very impressed with “fluffy” who is 18-years-old and speaks 5 languages. Only two were taught at school. Smart and kind, this young man communicated with all in the group, jumping easily from one language to another. They provided safety gear and tips, blocked traffic, and kept us together, making this an excursion that we are booking for 6 of us in June when we return to St. Maarten. Highly recommend!!
