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.

We had a great time on the St. Maarten ATV Adventure!!! We explored the entire island and even saw airplanes landing at the beach airport! Shore Excursions Group has been an awesome way to save money and have fun. We use it on every cruise we take.

We were very pleased with this excursion. We rode approximately 37 miles over the island and the group was about 15-20 people. The tour was fun and was not as rough as one we had done through RCL in 2017. Would highly recommend this excursion. Lots of fun. When we returned back to the Dive Shop where the excursion began, we went to the beach behind it---a very nice beach as well.

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.
