St Barths Day Trip
Check-in for your 9:00am ferry to St Barths at the Aqua Mania office - located at Pelican Marina, in front of the Simpson Bay Resort. Remember to have a valid passport with you as St Barths has a very strict immigration policy, some nationalities may require a visa.
In just 45 minutes the “Edge” ferry will whisk you across the Caribbean Sea to your St Barths port of arrival – Gustavia. During the short crossing you can relax in the spacious ventilated cabin and enjoy complimentary refreshments from the bar.
Gustavia is the main hub of activity on St Barths. From here taxis and rental cars are ready and waiting for you to explore the island. At a little over 8 square miles, St Barths is easy to get around in a day. Visit its famous white-sanded beaches and admire the panoramas as small curving roads wind around steep hills, offering breath-taking views along the way.
Stop for lunch at famous Nikki Beach or head back to Gustavia, with its Swedish forts, luxury shops, waterfront cafes and harbour full of mega-yachts. But St Barths is more than just shopping and fine dining. There’s also a variety of activities to keep you busy, such as scuba diving, snorkelling, hiking, and surfing along with a variety of other watersports.
The ferry leaves Gustavia at 4:00pm so you’ll just have some time to pick up those last souvenirs before heading back to St Maarten after a day of sights and delights!
The purpose built “Edge” high-speed catamarans, with their wave-piercing design, make getting to/from St Barths easy; although sometimes the ride over can be a little bouncy.
