We took this tour so that our son and daughter-in-law could get idea of St. John USVI. They went to a small beach there and we snorkled and swam ashore to lay out some on the beach. During our return back to St. Thomas we were served cheese and bread and choice of beer, champagne or rum punch.
We have been to St. Maarten/St. Marten many times but this was a first for our Son and daughter in law travelling with us. We decided to go to Orient Beach (on the french side) so they could experience the pretty beach there and also have choices of bars and restaurants. This was our favorite stop and we had so much fun, drinking, eating and playing in the water. We find it is cheaper to just rent a cab (plenty of them) in St. Maarten close to dock and there are plenty of cabs at the beach to return you to port. This also gave us some time to shop around town.
