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.

The ATV ride was awesome! My husband and I shared one and it was perfect for us! The tour took us all over the French side and the dutch side! Beautiful Island with amazing views! I would highly recommend! I would like the mention it says shopping however, that is in the beginning of the tour before you actually ride the ATV's so I would advice against going on the strip to shop prior to checking in right when you get off the boat until you check in with ATV ride and then do exploring on the strip. Also, it states one of the locations they ride to is the beach however, there was no actual time to spend in the beach. It was just a brief 5-10minture stop. Overall it was really great!

This was an excellent tour. We rode all around St. Maarten on the ATV's. The guides were wonderful. They stopped traffic in the round abouts so we could stay together. We stopped at all the must do sites. Will do this again.

We really enjoyed our ATV excursion on St. Maarten, our leader was fun and very personable. We rode around the entire Island and we saw some beautiful beaches and some hurricane damage as well. If you enjoy ATV riding, then this is a good excursion to go on.
My family and I had a great time on this ATV tour. the guide did a great job keeping all of us together, as it was about 12 ATVs on the tour and he made sure other traffic let us all go and stay together on the main roads. when we booked it i think it said the tour was 2-3hrs? but it ended up being like 4 since we tours the whole island! it was very cool. and we made it back at least 1hour before we had to be on boat. Super fun tour! my wife and our 9yr old son all had a blast.
this is a must do excursion, if you love ATVs, off roading and adventure. Apache and the rest of the crew will take you through town and up the mountain where you'll see some great sights, take pictures and get some local knowledge as well. every time my wife and I visit, we make sure that is one of our stops.
