This tour combines the best St. Maarten has to offer, both on land and beneath the ocean's surface. Depart Philipsburg on the Dutch side of the island, and drive up the eastern side to the second largest town in St. Maarten - Grand Case. Here you’ll board a semi-submarine for an approximately 45 minute narrated tour of the coral reefs surrounding Creole Rock. The vessel does not submerge - you descend into the hull of the boat and in air-conditioned comfort, explore sea life in this cruising underwater observatory. The highlight of the trip is when a diver is surrounded by schools of fish as he feeds them right in front of your viewing window.
Back on shore, your tour continues to the French capital of Marigot, where you’ll have time to explore this attractive city with its sidewalk cafes, open air market and duty-free shops. Depending on your tour itinerary you’ll have an opportunity to stop off at Orient Bay lookout for a magnificent view of the east coast and nearby islands or at Cole Bay lookout on the west coast from where you can see the Simpson Bay Lagoon and the neighboring islands. This tour may operate in reverse order.
