An Ocean of Possibilities

An island paradise

St. Martin/St. Maarten offers countless activities. Try your hand at sailing, jet skiing, parasailing, scuba diving and snorkeling. Island visitors can enjoy mountain biking, hiking, horseback riding and parachuting.

The clear blue water off the island makes for ideal snorkeling and scuba diving conditions. Dawn Beach is among the island’s best spots for snorkeling just off the beach. However, opportunities for more in-depth exploration abound and you can book half-day and full-day trips for snorkeling and diving among the area’s colorful reefs. Captain Alan, owner of five slips in the Oyster Bay Marina, offers three- and six-hour snorkeling tours daily. Make sure you enjoy this unique experience by making reservations in advance.  Contact our Activities Desk to learn more and to make reservations.

Experience the ultimate blend of luxury and adventure as you set sail into the waters of the Caribbean Sea. Whether you're an experienced sailor or a novice seeking a taste of the high seas, our expert crew will guide you on an unforgettable journey. Contact our Activities Desk to learn more.

When you tire of wearing your bathing suit (if that’s even possible), head for terra firma for a bike ride between Simpson Bay and the French lowlands. Or take a mountain biking adventure or a hike to the highest peak on the island, Pic Paradis (Paradise Peak), where you also can enjoy the excitement of its zip-line obstacle courses. There’s a course for adults (more arduous and quite a workout) and one for children.
