What You Can Expect

St Barts Ferry Transfer from St Maarten

St. Barts Ferry Transfer from St. Martin

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

The crew was great, the boat was clean and well maintained, and trip over and back were on time. Yes, the crossing is rough, but that is normal at all times here. If you tend to get sea sick (suffer from motion sickness), then take medication or avoid altogether. A great way to spend some pleasant time on St Barts.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

The ferry was a great experience.
Fantastic crew and the Captain Annika was great!
St. Bart's is interesting however being able to speak French would have helped.
The "taxi's" are interesting and the prices varied from 80.00 to 100.00 . Find JC he is the best and definitely join up with other passengers to share the cost . JC is a 12th generation St Bart's native and he is a pleasure to tour with.
It was worth the time and money to visit St.Barts.
