Day 1 Marigot, St Martin | Embark

Arrive to St.Martin and transfer to the port in Marigot. Board the SeaDream and attend dinner as the ship sets sail.

Optional Activities: 

Marigot - America's Cup 12-meter Regatta: Today is your chance to join the crew aboard a multi-million dollar America's Cup contender during the St. Martin 12-Meter Regatta. Compete in an actual race around an "America's Cup" course. Grind a winch, trim a sail, and sail "your" America's Cup boat to victory. The able and experienced Regatta staff give instructions on how to perform a task and what commands to expect. Previous sailing experience is unnecessary. The Regatta is out of St. Maarten's Philipsburg Harbor, and round-trip transportation is included for all "crew members." Join the victory celebration with a rum punch on the dock before returning to the SeaDream quay. If you love to sail or have never tried, do not miss this adventure!
Duration: 4.5 hours

Marigot - Deep Sea Fishing: Let your skilled skipper help you find the right fishing spot. Depending on the time of year, the waters around St. Martin abound in blue marlin, tuna, swordfish, mahi-mahi, white marlin, sailfish, wahoo, barracuda, and more. The fishing boat charter waits for you right at the pier where you are tendered ashore in Marigot. Depending on the sea conditions and time permitting, the skipper brings you as far as off Anguilla, around St. Martin or St. Barth coasts. Type of boat: Hatteras 33’ (1988)
Duration: 4 hours

Marigot - The Zip-Line Lovers - Extreme: Do you love zipping through treetops? Have you "done" zip-lines before? Did you always feel that the zip-lines were too short or too few? Did the rides always leave you wanting more? Then this is your kind of trip! This one is amazing! After being outfitted at the station at the bottom of the lush valley, an open-air truck takes you on a short drive up, almost to the top of the mountain. Soon you find yourself high above the regular fly-zone down below and enjoying spectacular views of Marigot and the verdant valley. Welcome to the "jungle." A short "practice" zip starts you off. From then on you begin to make your way down into the valley along longer zip-lines, with some of them 50 to 60 feet (15-18 meters) above the ground. There are a couple of tightrope walks to break up the zipping but for the most part this is all about the exhilarating fun of zipping from tree to tree.
Duration: 3.5 hours

Marigot - Orient Bay Beach Transfer: Leave the SeaDream pier at Marigot and enjoy a scenic drive of approximately 25 minutes before arriving at one of the island's most beautiful and well-known beaches, Orient Bay Beach. The transfer concludes at the conveniently located central section of Orient Bay Beach - Orient Bay is one of the nicest and longest beaches on the island, approximately 2 ½ km of golden sand bordering the Atlantic Sea. Located on the northeastern part of the island, it is certainly the most animated with all its watersports facilities. Spend memorable time at the beach.

The ride goes up back on the road and slowly drives down towards Gustavia harbor.

Gustavia - St. Barts Semi-Submersible - "Under The Sea": No matter what your plans are for St. Barts, do not miss a trip below water level!

As you reach the edge of the harbor you should be able to see some of the many green turtles that have chosen to live in the island's clean little harbor. Shortly thereafter, the vessel passes over the wreck of the 50-foot island freighter "Marignan" that sunk during hurricane "Luis" in 1995. Continue across the Saint Barth Marine Park and marvel at the lively underwater parade in front of you. Here, the sea bottom is full of colorful coral reefs that are gently invaded by troops of "sergeant majors" fish. Following this spectacle, it is time to head back to the pier. You may decide to stay outside on the upper deck from where you can enjoy views of the many beautiful yachts and breathtaking shores of Saint Barts.
