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.

This expedition is a MUST DO! We had a fantastic guide (I hate that I do not know his name). We rode all over the island (French and Dutch side). The sights were breathtaking. The guide would occasionally pull over to the side of the road to share tourist information with us or to make sure we were all fine. We zipped all over the island, visiting 2 beaches and a shopping area. We had 30-45 minutes at each location to swim or shop. The food was delicious at the restaurant at our last stop. After returning, we were each offered a complimentary rum punch (or soda/water) for the kids. This was hands down the best way to see the island. Beautiful views with a guide who knows the ins and outs of where to take you. We will return and book this excursion again. Lots of bang for your buck....worth every penny. Check out the Candy Man inside the Dive Shop.
This was my first ATV experience and one of the excursions I ever took. The guide was very helpful and professional. If you like to SEE and FEEL St. Maarten please consider the ATV Adventure. You will get to experience many beautiful views around the island, feel free and alive with the sun and wind on you skin. Enjoy!

Booked this excursion thinking it would be a group shuttled to a rural location, led through a scenic tour on trails..SURPRISE! We were driven directly downtown with 2 other individuals who rode in the Jeep with the tour guide. My fiancee and I on our own ATV's, whipped and wound through streets, in city traffic on both the dutch side and french side. Wind in our face, Throttle WIDE OPEN on highways, immersive views of the island you dont see unless on a special tour. Stopped multiple times at beautiful beaches (caution the second stop was a nude beach) Our group decided to forego shopping at the french market but it looked really neat!! The group in the jeep called it a relaxing tour but we felt it was more of a white knuckle thrill! We had big smiles on our faces the entire time! We were told that it was due to the small size of our group but larger tours run a little slower, convoy style. All in all I would recommend this tour because of all the fun we had and the sights we saw.
We definitely recommend this to anyone! It was a great way to see the entire island both sides! Our guide Mr. White was beyond great! Very personable and insisted to take our photos at every stop. Definitely do it!
My sister and I had an amazing time. The very best excursion ever!!! 💗Thank you. Your wonderful indeed!!! Omara😊
