Time at the beach is virtually mandatory on this island paradise where it seems as if the ocean is never more than a few yards away.

Enjoy dramatic scenery, dominated on the left by the “Morne Vitet”, the highest mountain on the island (286m) with a deep green valley and the blue and white of the raging ocean. The group continues along the water towards Toiny and later towards Lorient and its famous cemeteries, Saint-Jean and its sea resort style with shops and restaurants, and makes it up to the top of “Lurin” before going down to Gustavia. The ride goes up back on the road and slowly drives down towards Gustavia harbor.

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.

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.

Duration: 3 hours

Philipsburg, St Maarten – The Zip-Line Lovers Zip Line - 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

Philipsburg, St Maarten – Orient Bay Beach Transfer: Leave the ship’s pier at Philipsburg and enjoy a scenic drive to one of the island's most beautiful and well- known beaches - Orient Bay Beach.

Find several bars, cafes, and watersport rental stands (parasailing, hobbies, jet skis) here. For your orientation, the southern portion is St Martin's (in)famous nude beach, while the northern end is popular with windsurfers. You have approximately three hours to do as you please: walk the beach, enjoy a snack and some people watching at one of the cafes, or partake in one of the watersport activities available. Then re-board the transfer vehicle where you first arrived at "Waikiki" for your return to the ship. This is a great way to "soak up some of the local color" and still have the afternoon for shopping in Philipsburg.
Duration: 4 hours

Philipsburg, St Maarten – 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.

Beyond expectations! Then again we weren't sure what to expect. Lovely stay at the lodge, met other like-minded travelers (many had their trips planned by Adventure Life) and the owner was a gracious hostess. It felt like you were one happy family, visiting with a favorite aunt.
