Took a tour of the island with Bernard's tours stopping at an iguana farm on Dutch side and oystery pond with sea creatures fresh from the sea and dried ones and a great talk, spent 90 minutes on Orient Beach with a snack, then to French Marigot and Serafina's pastry shop and flea market and off to Maho Beach(airport beach) to watch the planes land over the beach. Then off to Simpson Bay and Harold Jack Hill and back to the Dutch side to the ship. Lots of drinks provided and small group of
8 or 9 passengers.
Left for two hours of shopping needed approx. 45 minutes because the stores in town were mainly jewelry and specialty chocolate and knick-knacks. Then toured the Magen's Bay, Coki beach, and mountain top vistas with a stop at a tourist center up top. DId not stop at Blackbeard's castle and that was a disappointment as the admission was pricey and not included in the tour. But we spent about 5-6 hours on this tour.
